Fit to be Tied
The Perfect Fit for Tying the Knot!

If you are planning to tie the knot, you definitely need a dress with the perfect fit and style for your figure. Selecting the most appropriate silhouette is easy with our online guide!

First, let's take a quick look at the basic gown silhouettes.
1. Princess or A-Line
The typical A-Line silhouette has seams starting at the bust or shoulders and flowing down to a flared skirt. The top of the dress gracefully blends into the skirt. It gets it name from the "A" shape, small at the top and larger (flared) at the bottom.

2. Sheath or Mermaid
This silhouette closely follows the line of your body, hence the nickname "mermaid".

3. Ball Gown
The ball gown silhouette is similar to the A-Line, only it has a much fuller skirt and typically features a full bodice that is distinctly separate from the skirt.

4. Empire
The Empire silhouette is high-waisted and typically has a slimmer skirt. This style is reminiscent of Jackie O.

Now that we know the basic silhouettes, lets take a look at which ones work for each body style.
The Perfect Hour-Glass Figure
Okay, so you've got a figure even Marylin Monroe
would be envious of!
Do consider...
A nice A-Line gown paired with a v-neck or scoop-neck to fully flatter your figure.
Think twice about...
an Empire silhouette which may hide your figure or make it look disporportioned. A ball-gown may work if the skirt isn't overly full, but watch that it doesn't over accentuate your bottom half.

Short Waisted and Petite Figures
Do consider...
an A-Line gown to elongate your waist and make you appear taller. Since the top of the dress gently blends into the flared skirt, it gives a long and lean look.
Think twice about...
a ball gown. The ball gown may simply swallow you whole. You want everyone to see YOU walk down the aisle -- not a big gown with a person hidden in it!

Tall and Thin
Do consider...
a ball gown. You will look like an absolute Princess walking down the aisle. Also consider a Sheath silhouette - there aren't too many of us who can get away with wearing them. If you've got it, we suggest you flaunt it!
Think twice about...
well ... we really can't think of a style that you wouldn't look great in!
 
Pear Shaped
Do consider...
a gown that will draw attention to the upper half of your body. The Silhouette isn't quite as important as the neckline you select. The idea is to flatter your shoulders and chest while drawing focus away from your hips.
Think twice about...
the mermaid silhouette ... for obvious reasons.

Full Figure and Plus Size
Do consider...
a ball gown or A-Line gown. The ball gown is full and will hide many figure problems in the lower areas. An A-Line will flatter practically any figure.

Think twice about...
mermaid silhouettes, thin straps, and sleeveless gowns. Instead, focus on drawing attention to your best features. Wear short or long sleeves to cover upper arm troubles and consider a scoop or v-neck to flatter your chest and neck.
