#Figure It Out: The Pros & Cons of Different Dress Styles on Different Body Shapes

All brides-to-be come to realize that wedding dress shopping has its own lingo. All of the different terms and names of designers can be overwhelming. But after you read this article and take a trip to Lotus Bridal, you will be a pro and have an understanding of what dress shape matches the vibe of your wedding & makes you look and feel your absolute best!

A-Line Wedding Dress

What is it?

An A-Line dress features a fitted bodice that flares from the waist, gradually getting wider as it goes towards the floor, mimicking a capital letter “A”.

Should I Say Yes?

This dress looks good on any body type. It emphasizes a teeny-tiny waist line while maintaining a classic, bridal feel.

Should I Say No?

If you are looking for a dress that shows off your booty, stay away from A-Line.

Trumpet & Mermaid Gowns

What are they?

Both Trumpet & Mermaid gowns are known for their body-hugging shapes. Trumpets flare out starting in the middle of the thigh. Mermaid dresses flare out starting at the knee, allowing for a more dramatic flare or “poof” at the bottom.

Should I Say Yes?

If you love your curves and want to show off that sexy-bod then this is the style for you! This dress elongates brides while showing off an hour glass figure.

Should I Say No?

If your main concern for your wedding day is mobility & ease of walking, then consider staying away from mermaid & trumpet dresses. Girls who do not want to bring attention to their hips often do not like the fit of these dresses.

Ballgown

What is it?

The Ballgown is best known for being the “princess dress” due to it’s full skirt and fitted bodice.

Should I Say Yes?

Lotus Bridal rejects the idea that a girl is too big or too small to wear a ballgown. If you want to feel like a princess on your big day, then the girls at Lotus Bridal will help you match it with the perfect tiara!

Should I Say No?

One thing to consider is that ballgown dresses can get heavy. Another factor to consider is your venue. If the space is on the smaller side, you might want to stay away from such a voluminous gown.
