Inverted Triangle

A guide to finding the best gown for your shape.

Inverted Triangle

Your shape

You have broad shoulders which taper down, and slim legs.

Your aim

You may want to make your shoulders look smaller.

Suggested shapes or features

If you want to balance out your shoulders, draw attention to the hem of the skirt. This balances out the inverted triangle shape by creating another triangle, from hem to waist. Wide-set straps or a wide halter will also make your shoulders look smaller.

One last piece of advice

Every bride has things she likes and dislikes 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. We bet your loved ones (and most importantly, your fiancé) have a much more forgiving perception of your gorgeous features.
