Wedding Dress Types

Shopping for a wedding dress is one of the crucial steps in the wedding preparation process. It’s the single most important garment of the wedding of your dreams. You should aim to look like the absolute best version of yourself on your wedding day.

Here are wedding dress types and what’s perfect for your body type:

Ball gown: It’s the most traditional of all the gowns. The “fairy tale” dress, with a fitted bodice, flairs at the waist with a full skirt. Ideal for most body types but looks great on pears, since it hides the lower body. Not good for petites; the skirt can be overwhelming on a small frame.

Wedding Dress - Ball Gown

A-Line: It’s a more tame version of the ball gown type. Fitted bodice through the waist and flows out to the ground, resembling the outline of an uppercase “A.” Ideal for all body types.

A line Wedding dress

Modified A-Line: The modified A-line Fitted on the bodice and hips and gradually flares to the hem, forming an “A” shape. The skirt of a modified A-line dress fits closer to the body than a traditional A-line. It’s also ideal for all body types.

Modified A Line : Wedding Dress

Trumpet: The trumpet is fitted through the body and flairs mid-thigh. The cut is between a modified a-line and a mermaid cut. Ideal for frames with small waists, such as the hourglass, banana, and petites. Not good for pears and apples, as it accentuates stomach and hip area.

Trumpet Wedding Dress

Mermaid: The mermaid is fitted on the body from the chest to the knee, then flares out close to the knee. Ideal for slender frames and hourglass body types who are willing to show off their curves. Not good for apples and plus size body types.

Mermaid Wedding Dress

Sheath: The sheath is narrow shape that flows straight down from the neckline to the hem. Ideal for lean frames, such as petites and bananas. Also good on hourglasses who are willing to show off their curves. Not good for pears; sheaths will accentuate extra inches and can be unflattering.
