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.
The Hour Glass Curvy bust and hips with a narrow defined waist
Sheath Dress – Show off your figure with a slim fit dress
A- line – Fitted bodice with a skirt that gently flows outwards from hip to hem
Ball gown – again the gorgeous full shirt and corset-style bodice will suit pear shapes very well
Ball Gowns – Again the full skirt and fitted bodice of a princess style dress suits nearly all shapes
Mermaid – again a mermaid or trumpet style will flatter your curves as it hugs all the right places and balances out the shoulders
Short Dresses – great for balancing out the body and making the most of great legs. If you’re a shoe lover you can show off a killer pair of heels
A- line – Fitted bodice with a skirt that gently flows outwards from hip to hem. Will help create the illusion of curves
