The Best Wedding Dress for Your Body Type



5 Figure Types, 5 Perfect Gowns

1. Long & Lean

Hoping to make a boyish figure look a little more feminine? Ruched waist detailing and halter straps are two fail-safe ways to create the illusion of curves at the waist and bust. Extra flouse in the skirt adds to the flirty vibe. Gown: Demetrios Illusions Style 3194

2. Busty 

Contrary to popular belief, the best way to downplay a larger chest is not to completely cover it up. Instead, opt for a gown with a sculpted upper bodice and a medium coverage V-neck. If possible, have the straps tailored to ensure maximum uplift. Gown: Demetrios Destination Romance Style DR185


3. Petite 

Big ball gowns can quickly overwhelm a small frame. If you're willing to buck the tradition of a long skirt, we absolutely reccomend going short. A more compact dress will ensure guests see you instead of seeing what you're wearing. Gown: Demetrios Young Sophisticated Style 2856

4. Strong Arms

A high neck and prominent arm cut-outs are the best way to show off sculpted shoulders and biceps. If your arms are your strongest asset, consider a gown with a scuba-style halter silhouette. Gown: Demetrios lissa Style 535

5. Hourglass

Pairing a deep V-neck with a full skirt draws eyes in to the smallest part of your body: your waist. Gown: Demetrios Ilissa Style 545
