Gowns for Every Figure

Beautiful bridal gowns to suit every body type


Choosing your wedding gown will be one of the most important and most exciting aspects of your wedding day. Finding a dress that flatters and suits your body type can be tricky so we have got some great advice to help you get started. Find even more figure flattering dresses in our wedding dress section.

  • Athletic: If you have a lean, boyish figure then concentrate on styles that will give you definition around the waist to help create the illusion of curves. This strapless gown by Ronald Joyce will give you a fantastic shape and the ruffles on the dress create even more shape. Style: Candy
  • Pear Shaped: An a-line gown will suit a pear-shaped body beautifully. It will skim over any parts that you want to disguise whilst also giving you a great silhouette. If you feel you need to balance out your figure a little more, then an asymmetrical design will look great and give more definition to your shoulders. The Georgia dress by Alan Hannah has both a full skirt and an asymmetrical neckline so could be just what you are looking for.
  • Apple Shaped: Apple shapes typically have an undefined waist. Grecian style dresses and those with an empire line will look beautiful and flatter all your best bits! This Chambord dress from Blue by Enzoani has a simple empire line and has a beautiful Grecian feel to it.
  • Strawberry Shaped: If you are broad shouldered, then a halter neck gown will look great on you. A full skirt will also help balance out your proportions. This gown from Veromia is great for balancing out the shoulders. Style: VR61019
  • Hourglass: If you are blessed with an hourglass figure then a cinched in waist to define your curves will look fantastic. Avoid looser styles as this may mean you lose that defined shape. This gown by Benjamin Roberts is both simple and elegant and will flatter your shape perfectly. Style: 2057
