Hourglass Shape

A guide to finding the best gown for your shape.

Hourglass Shape

Your shape

You are curvaceous, with a noticeable bust and hips, and a small waist.

Your aim

You may want to show off your curves, or you may want to play them down.

Suggested shapes or features

A structured dress will help you show off your amazing figure, while a lightweight gown may make you look a bit lumpy.

A fit-and-flare mermaid shape will really enhance your assets—you can go for a tight shape over the bum and a plunging neckline. Or, if you want more coverage, you’ll look equally amazing in a gown that’s cinched in at the waist. Great construction in the cup area will help your bust feel supported.

One last piece of advice

Your mantra is - accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative and don't mess with Mrs In between.
