How to choose the right wedding dress silhouette for your figure?

How to choose the right wedding dress silhouette for your figure?

Finding a wedding dress is one of the most essential stages in pre-wedding preparation. When creating the ideal image, the bride should not only strive to make her dreams come true but also consider the actual features of her figure. You need to choose an outfit of the right style to highlight your strengths and gently hide your flaws. Our wedding dress silhouette guide can help you find your body type and a suitable dress.


Wedding dress silhouettes for different body types.

Determining your body type will help you choose the fitting bridal dress silhouette, feeling the need to disguise conventional shortcomings and the ability to highlight strengths. There are four main body types:


The hips of such girls are the widest part of the body. The shoulders are always narrow, but the waist can be strongly defined and inconspicuous. The stomach often remains flat, and the arms are thin. The breasts are usually small in size. 

It is essential to choose:

  • A straight cut will help smooth out the contrast of volume from the upper and lower parts of the body, and dresses with a belt will help focus attention on a beautiful, thin waist.
  • Sheath or mermaid dresses will highlight the feminine curves of the body.

Jennifer Lopez is an example of a woman with a triangle figure.


The chest and hip circumference is approximately the same. The difference with the waist is barely noticeable. Your belly begins to expand as soon as you gain a little weight. The undoubted advantage of an apple figure is its slender legs. 

The following will help hide flaws and highlight advantages:

  • A-line wedding dresses with wide skirts.
  • Models in the Greek style with a high waist and soft draperies.
  • Outfits with vertical print or decor.
  • Midi dresses with full skirts.

Coco Chanel was a bright representative of Apple-figure.


The hips and chest are balanced, and the waist is much thinner than a triangle figure, emphasizing a beautiful arch in the lower back when choosing a dress. A beautiful arch in the lower back is worth emphasising when choosing a dress. Girls with such a proportionate and feminine figure should emphasise their advantages as much as possible. Suitable for this purpose:

  • Dresses with a fitted cut and a narrow skirt. A high slit at the hem will help reveal your legs.
  • Mermaid-style models have a skirt flared from the knees or hips.
  • Dresses with a corset top, emphasising a thin waist and beautiful breasts, and a flared skirt.

Monica Bellucci has such a body type.

Inverted triangle 

With broad shoulders, the hips look much narrower. As you gain weight, your bust increases, and your arms become fuller. But slender legs allow many owners of this type of figure to choose short dresses. The following silhouettes are the best for this body type:

  • A-silhouette with a flared skirt can be layered or not. Choosing a closed top is better, and avoiding ones with straps or bustiers.
  • Lush ballroom. It has a very full skirt, usually multi-layered. The product holds its shape well due to the dress with rings. It makes the hips visually wider, making their shoulders seem less massive.
  • Mermaid style silhouette resembles a Mermaid's tail. The flare starts from the knee.

Demi Moore has this type of figure.


Types of wedding dress silhouettes

Nowadays, there is a wide variety of wedding dress silhouettes to choose from. When creating the ideal image, the bride should strive to make her dreams come true and consider her figure's actual features. You must choose an outfit with the right wedding dress silhouette type to highlight your strengths and gently hide your flaws.

  • Lush wedding dress. Ball gown silhouette 

Wedding dresses of this silhouette have always been popular because this is a great chance to try a magical look and not part with it all day.

Such dresses are in almost all the collections of the world's leading wedding designers, and only a few girls will remain indifferent to them. This wedding dress silhouette suits almost all body types, masks flaws, and highlights advantages.

  • "A-silhouette" or "princess"

An A-line is one of the wedding dress silhouette styles that suit all body types. A-line dresses are also suitable for various wedding looks: an outfit with an open back will add sexuality, a dress with lace sleeves and a closed neckline is ideal for a wedding, and the use of translucent fabrics will emphasise the shoulders and neck and the hands of the bride. 

  • Straight wedding dress

Dresses of this silhouette visually emphasises: the line of the chest, waist, and hips, and they must be proportionate to each other. Long, straight wedding dresses have become very popular these days. This dress can have a lot of options for cutting and finishing.

  • Silhouette "Mermaid"

This wedding dress creates an elegant, sophisticated, alluring silhouette like a mermaid tail. This wedding dress silhouette suits a proportional body type; it emphasises femininity and all the advantages of the bride. Mermaid silhouette dresses come in different styles: with a neckline, an open back, and straps, and models with sleeves are standard. Open dresses are often made from stiffer fabrics. Mermaid dresses must be tailored to fit the bride's body to ensure a perfect fit. The lower part of the skirt can be: round, fluffy, with a long train.

  • Empire-style Greek silhouette

A Greek style is an ideal wedding dress silhouette for almost all body types, especially for girls with large breasts. You will get a holistic and harmonious image if you complement it with hairstyle, accessories, and makeup in the same style.
