With so many dress options at your disposal, it is no wonder that brides find settling on the perfect dress so stressful. Here to help, Prudence Gowns features five of their dresses, with advice on styles to suit your shape.

1. Pear

If you are bottom heavy, then your small bust and waist should be highlighted. Princess dresses, like this Ronald Joyce ‘Eiliyah’ design serves to accentuate your daintiest assets by nipping in at the waist and featuring lace detailing to really enhance your delicacy on top.

2. Athletic

Characterised by broad shoulders and lithe limbs, the athletic body shape should steer clear of fussy gowns and opt for something that balances your proportions. A slim figure can look great in a fishtail like this Stella York ‘Bianca’ dress, which shows off toned arms with a sweetheart neckline and emphasises a thin waist, providing flare at the hem to settle body ratios.

3. Hourglass

Killer curves should be celebrated and a figure-hugging dress such as this ‘Emma’ creation from Maggie Sottero is simple and stunning to let your shape do all the talking. Cap sleeves ensure balance above the neckline, while an elegant embellished train offers interest.

4. Apple

A top heavy frame will usually want to add weight to their bottom and thighs. As such, the ‘Saoirse’ dress by Sincerity serves to offer volume from the waist down, while slimming arms and bust with demure detailing at the neckline.

5. Tubular

If you have a small bust and bottom, with little definition at the waist, then a dress that offers a feminine silhouette will do just the trick. The fun and flirty ‘Claire’ dress from House of Mooshki is a real showstopper with a frothy tulle skirt that won’t swamp you. A duck egg blue bow belt and lace bodice will add the illusion of curves without detracting from your petite frame.
