How to find the perfect wedding dress for pear-shaped figures

Wedding dress Q – I have a pear-shaped figure. What dress styles do you recommend to show my shape off?

"We recommend a fitted gown for a bride with a pear-shaped figure. Use your wedding gown to your advantage and choose a style that accentuates your waist and hugs your hips. Here are some examples of our favourite dresses:

"Anthony is a fitted gown perfect for any bride wanting to show off their gorgeous curves. There are no details, so it’s ideal for confident brides.

"Lexi is a soft lace fitted gown with little detailing.

"Sofia has cut out sides that will accentuate your waist, and who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle?

"Martha is perfect for brides with a smaller bust who still wants to show off their curves.

"For those of you who want to show off their tiny waist but camouflage their hips, A-line dresses are the best option. Here are some examples:

"MJ750 is an alternative style that’s flattering but modest at the bust area.

"Starlet has a delicate bodice, deep V neckline and a bit of sparkle. 

"You should always feel confident in what you wear on your wedding day and love your curves because they’re a part of you!"
