What Silhouette is Best for Your Body Type

On your wedding day, you want to feel beautiful and confident. Finding a bridal silhouette that flatters your body is a key part of this, and is a question we often get asked by brides. No worries—it is quite literally our job to know what wedding dresses you’ll look incredible wearing! Depending on your favorite part of your body or what you want to highlight, the silhouette that will work best is different. 

If You Want To Highlight Your Waist and Minimize Your Hips



The best choice here is an A-line silhouette. The classic shape’s skirt slants towards your waist, creating a shape that brings the attention to the bodice.. The full skirt is feminine and timeless, and this silhouette genuinely looks good on everyone. You can’t go wrong with it!

If You Want To Show Off Your Curves



For the woman who wants a gorgeous, sultry hourglass figure, you’ll want either a mermaid or a fit and flare. Both are fitted through the hip with the skirt flaring out lower, which creates an exaggerated hourglass silhouette that will make your curves look absolutely stunning. 

If You Want a Princess Moment



Sometimes, we find women feel most confident in a bold, princess-like ball gown. After all, the shape perfectly fits the romance of your wedding day, and if you want to feel like a princess as you walk down the aisle, this silhouette is it. 

Sometimes, you won’t know which you like yourself in best until you try it. Book an appointment at Claire’s Fashions, and we’ll help you find your dream wedding dress.
