’s beauty.The two styles that favor most body figures are the A-line wedding dresses and the Princess line dresses. The A-line slightly flares from the shoulders down. It softens curves and elongates to create a more slender and taller figure. For petite brides it creates length, for tall brides it adds fullness and covers curves you’d rather not show. This is the perfectly simple and beautiful wedding gown.
If You're Pear-Shaped?
Look for: A skirt that gradually flares out in an A formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs. (Sturdier fabrics, such as duchesse satin and taffeta, are especially effective, since they won't cling.) A spaghetti-strap bodice or a V neckline will also showcase a more slender upper body.
Keep in mind: A classic A-line silhouette lends itself to formal weddings, but it can also be dressed down when made from a more casual fabric, like eyelet lace or raw-silk shantung.
If You're Busty?
Look for: A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across (which will make your bust appear even larger and more shelflike).
Keep in mind: Fabric on the bodice that has a sheen to it (such as organza, satin, or silk) will add volume and call attention to your chest. Material that is ruched will have the same effect.

If You’re Plus-Sized?
Look for: An Empire dress with a skirt that begins just under the bust and flows into a gradual floor-length A-line.
