BRIDE // Dresses For Your Body Shape - Athletic

Today is the first in a series of posts all about finding a wedding dress for your body shape and we are starting with dresses that will flatter those with an ATHLETIC body shape.  

This is a great body shape for full length gowns due to your stature, however you don’t have a defined waistline so the key here is to create the illusion of curves. 

A sheath gown cut on the bias will flatter your slender shape, however, you should avoid off the shoulder and halter necklines. You can also consider a ball gown silhouette as this will instantly create a waist with a corset style bodice and the full skirt will create the illusion of curves.  

Delicate embroidery or embellishment detail strategically placed can also create a more curvy silhouette.
