A guide to finding the best gown for your shape.
As a very rough guide to getting started on your gown search we talk about body shape. Grab a tape measure and take a look in the mirror.
Nothing is a substitute to trying wedding gowns on (they truly are a unique garment) but at least this gives you some pointers to think about.
If your hips measure more than 1 inch bigger than your bust, you are likely to be a pear shape.
If your waist measures larger than your bust or hips then you are likely to be an Apple Shape.
If your hips measure 1 inch bigger than your bust, and your waist is about 4 inches smaller, you are likely to be an hourglass shape.
If all three of your basic body measurements come up the same, then you are likely to be a column shape.
You can find out if you’re this shape simply by looking in the mirror. If you have broad shoulders and slim legs, you are likely to be an inverted triangle shape.
You are an athletic shape if you are one of our super-fit brides — muscular and defined.
