The Best Wedding Dress for Your Shape | Apple

Wondering where to start with your wedding dress search?  Start with the fun part – browsing online and in magazines to find the dresses that make your heart beat a little faster and force you to take a second, (and third and forth) look.

At the same time, find out which dresses will look best on your shape.  So that you’ll know which of the gowns you like will look the best on you.

If you have an apple body shape – meaning you are top heavy and then get smaller from the waist down, these these style tips will help lead you to the dress that looks best on you:

  1. Use lower/plunging necklines draw attention upwards. V-neck and sweetheart necklines are great options.
  2. Elongate your silhouette with a high waistline and a skirt that flows away from the body. Empire waistlines and A-line silhouettes are best for this
  3. Consider showing off your legs with knee or tea length dresses.
  4. Skip: Mermaids and Trumpets, they will accentuate the widest part of your frame and flare at the slimmest.  Ballgowns because they won’t elongate your silhouette. Straight Across Strapless necklines because they  won’t accentuate your bustline.
