If you are like most women, you would like to have a perfect wedding. With all you have to do before your big day, finding the perfect wedding dress tops the list. Here are the best dresses for different body types:

Plus Size Body

If you have a big body, you can either wear a slimming dress or accentuate your curves. You should opt for a dress with symmetrical pleating, cumber-band waistline, and ruching. To draw the eye away from your waist and to your chest, you could opt for a scoop or V neckline. When searching for the perfect dress on sites such as, you should consult their sizing charts.

Pear-shaped Body

Most pear-shaped women look wonderful in A-line dresses, which are universally flattering. If you would rather play down your curves, opt for a Grecian dress. Make sure that you avoid gowns that will highlight your rear. Instead, you should opt for those that hide your full hips.

Slim and Straight Body

You can make it look like you have curves by opting for big dresses with fitted bodices and full skirts. You can also flatter your figure by wearing dresses with strategic embroidery or contouring. For instance, if you would like to show off your waistline, you could wear a dress with embellishments around the waist.

Petite Body

Do you have a petite body? You need to stay away from dresses that have too many details. Instead, you should opt for a fitting dress that does not have ruffles or a full skirt, as it will only swallow up your tiny frame. To create an illusion of height, an empire dress will be the best choice for you. Column and trumpet style dresses will also be ideal for your small frame.
