Suggested Shapes or features

You want to balance out your shoulders. This can be done by drawing attention to the skirt hem, so you have your inverted triangle from shoulder to waist balanced by another triangle from hem to waist. Wide set straps or a wide halter will cut your broad shouldered look.

Inverted triangle basically means you have broad shoulders and then taper straight through to slim legs. You might have a bit of bust and tummy but you are slim down to the hip. Slim triangle is a classic shape for a model as the clothes hang from the shoulder.

Models are inverted triangles, so if you are tall and slim take advantage of being a clothes hanger! Try a bias cut, you are one of the few shapes that can wear this gown.

It doesn’t matter what size you are - Inverted triangles can come in large or small.

But these gowns should give you a head start on what will suit you. Remember that nothing can substitute for trying gowns on.

Our last piece of advice:

Every bride has things she likes and doesn’t like about her body. It’s important to find a dress that fits your personality and preferences, but don’t let your inner critic take over in the process. We’re willing to bet your loved ones, most importantly your fiance, have a much more forgiving perception of your gorgeous features than you do.
