The ball gown dress is ideal for virtually all body types, as the full tulle skirt flatters nearly all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a skinny legend, a curvy queen or something in-between, this princessy silhouette may be right for you.

If a full tulle skirt isn’t your thing, consider the A-line dress. Flattering for most brides, the A-line is fitted to the waist, allowing the fabric to flow effortlessly to the floor. Brides can add or eliminate sleeves, go strappy or strapless, or even add a train.

If you’re a bride who wants to celebrate her curves, the mermaid gown is probably the best choice for you. These dresses are fitted to the knee, then flare to the floor, making them ideal for hourglass figures.

Last, but not least, is the sheath dress. This gown fits close to the body, making it superb for showing off one’s figure. If you’re a bride who doesn’t like flare, this gown is for you. It’s also a petite girl’s best friend.
