Wedding Dresses to suit your shape

Knowing our body shape is so important when choosing a wedding dress. At Alice May bridal our collection was selected with all body shapes in mind. We knew we would have our curvy ‘hourglass’ ladies, athletic built ‘rectangle’ girls, lovely ‘pears’ and all important ‘apples’.

These shape descriptions are all well and good but how do they relate to what dress will suit you??

We decided at Alice May to make things a bit easier and a whole lot more visual! Check out our list below and look for your body shape. We have such a large selection of dresses we decided to show you which styles will best suit your body shape!

All these dresses and many more are available at the Alice May Bridal Boutique, Kilternan, Co Dublin.
