A Short Wedding Dress for Your Shape

Apple Shape

You have a larger bust and tummy area but slimmer legs

A great tea length wedding dress to go for is one with a sweetheart or v-shape neckline. Both are such a flattering necklines and really support your bust. Most of the designer short wedding dresses we stock are made to measure with bodices that fit your body.

This is also a tea length so is great to show off those amazing legs. Wearing extra petticoats will allow the skirt to be fuller and have more movement. This is such a gorgeous vintage style wedding dress. Betsy by Timeless Chic has a gorgeous v neck ruched bodice and it’s a stunning retro wedding dress.

Pear Shape

Your hips are wider than your shoulders

This is the most common body shape for women. Choose a vintage style wedding dress that flatters your waistline. A beautifully detailed bodice will draw the eye up to the slender frame and the 1950s style skirt kicks out on the waistline.

Charlotte by House of Mooshki is such a feminine look that suits most brides. Ivory guipure lace creeps over the arms and down the bodice. It continues to cascade down the dress onto a full tulle skirt for a princess feel.

Triangle Shape

Wider top half and shoulders which narrow down the body

A retro tea length wedding dress suits this shape completely. Wearing a wedding gown with wide straps will balance your frame. Keep the lines smooth and simple to really accentuate your body shape. You can also choose a dress with a bolero or jacket to also balance your body out.
