Bigger Bust

The best dress to go for if you have a large bust is one that isn’t too low cut. So a structured top that supports under the bust with a higher neckline. Illusion necklines work well if you want to still show some skin off. Florrie by Loulou Bridal is a great dress with lots of support.

Smaller Bust

If you have a smaller bust then you can easily wear dresses with lower backlines and less support. If you are conscious of your shape then go for lots of detail and embellishment for the real wow factor.

Straight Body Shape

With a more athletic frame a big skirt is what you are looking for. It will help accentuate your waist more. So embellishment and v necklines are good ones to go for. Poppy by House of Mooshki, beautiful tulle and lace vintage 1950s inspired wedding gown with cap sleeve and button back.

Pear Shape

So with pear shapes we are looking to minimize the hips and accentuate the tiny waist and bust area.

 Petite

A petite bride to be should avoid a dress that will swamp her, instead opting for a tea length style. Victoria Tea Length Lace Short Wedding Dress With Strap by Rita Mae. The plunging neckline and detailed belt draws the eye to the areas we want to accentuate.
