Wedding Wednesday: Wedding Gown Tips Pt. 3

Welcome to the final installation of our Wedding Gown Tips report! Over the past few weeks you’ve seen lots of different wedding gown options for all different body types, and this week is no different! Here you’ll see some fab gowns for tall, petite and full figured ladies.

There are a lot of factors you should consider when shopping for that perfect wedding gown. Price, current bridal trends, your personal style and the season of your wedding are all things you should be thinking about! But one of the most important factors to consider is your body type. Picking a dress that flatters your unique silhouette is the best way to guarantee that you will look amazing on your wedding day.

If your specific body type isn’t featured in this week’s post, check out our Wedding Gown Tips Part 1 and Part 2 for more options. And, as always, our LightInTheBox Wedding Collection has more gowns than even we know what to do with!

Full Figured

If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Just avoid anything too clingy or too loose, they can both add pounds! These style dresses will show off your womanly curves and be flattering at the same time:

V-necks, scoop necks, sweetheart necklines, ball gowns, empire with a high waist (just under your bust line)

Tall

You should find a gown that accentuates your statuesque height! Make sure you pick a dress with a defined waist. Go for dresses with the following characteristics:

Deep v-necks, halter tops, open back, sheath silhouettes, mermaid/trumpet gowns, ball gowns

Petite

Smaller brides should stick with simple gowns; too much embellishments or appliqués will overwhelm your look. You should also go for a style that creates length. Try these styles to look your best:

Sweetheart necklines, halter tops, empire waists, a-line gowns, soft sheath/column (think Grecian goddess!)
