Choosing a Dress With a Triangle or Hourglass Body

The wedding day is the day that many women have dreamed about their entire lives. Choosing the dress can be the hardest part of the whole process. However, when a bride to be knows their body type it can be easier to find a dress. The following are suggestions that will help a bride with a triangle or hourglass body choose their perfect dress.

The Triangle

In the woman’s body that is a triangle, their hips are wider than their shoulders. A-line gowns, short gowns, and ball gowns will create flattering curves on their bodies. An A-line gown with a fitted bodice and a skirt that gently angle away from the body shows the entire figure. Short gowns that have a bodice or flowing sheath and a shorter hemline will create a graceful line on the body. A ball gown with a natural waistline will flatter a slim upper body and flow away from the hips and thighs.

The Hourglass

In the hourglass figure, the hips and shoulders are about the same size while the waist is well defined. Sheath gowns, ball gowns, and trumpet dresses are the best dresses for a body with this figure. A sheath gown will show off the figure with its streamlined silhouette that is slim from top to bottom. In a ball gown, the structured bodice and full skirt will create an elegantly feminine look. A trumpet dress with a curvy fit will show off the figure in all the right place.
