Wedding Dresses for a Boyish Figure Bride
For a boyish figure, where your body is slender and straight-lined, create the illusion of curves with heavier gathered fabrics. The upper portion of Sarah Seven’s Dove gown (above) has a boatneck with cap sleeves, widening your shoulders and complementing your waist. Its deep scoop back also provides additional dimension to a smaller body and is romantic touch to a modest gown.
Wedding Dresses for an Hour Glass Shape Bride
For an hour glass shape, meaning a fuller chest and hips balanced by a synched waist, gowns with a body skimming skirt and extra support are ideal. Sarah Seven’s Blythe and Frost gowns, shown above, are examples of how a high waisted skirt can slim fuller hips while emphasizing a smaller waist. Each gown’s sweetheart bodice offers support while still looking incredibly tasteful and elegant.
Wedding Dresses for a Pear Shape Bride
If you’re pear-shaped, meaning you’re more slim up top than your bottom half, the key is drawing attention to your shoulders and waist rather than trying to disguise your hips. Sarah Seven’s Emerson and Stella gowns (above) are both models of how to accomplish this. The deep scoop neck and cap sleeves of the Emerson gown balance your lower body, as well as the high-laced neckline of the Stella gown.
