Which Wedding Dress Style is Best For Your Body?


Trends and Tips

The best wedding dress is beautifully designed and made from exceptional material, and perfectly flatters every single aspect of your body, so you look and feel beautiful at every moment of your wedding. At Channy Bride and Beyond we screened out dresses that don’t have the quality, construction, beauty, fashion, style, endurance and dependability we know brides want.

 Ball Gown

Look for a wedding dress that draws attention to your waist while also highlighting your lower half. A bodice that shapes and defines your midsection and a skirt that flares from the hips and thighs will not only make you feel like a princess but will also create a wow-worthy entrance. 

 Here at Channy Bride and Beyond you can personalize it! If you’re worried a ball gown can be too traditional or formal for your style, opt for adding sleeves to your dress for a more relaxed and romantic look. An off-the-shoulder lace sleeve is an easy customization to enhance any bridal style.


Show off your curves with a flirty and feminine wedding dress style. A fitted bodice that flares at or below the knee will accentuate your waist and maintain the balanced look of your figure. This wedding dress style evokes an ultra-sexy vibe by bringing attention to your curves in a subtle and flattering way.



Find a dress that is narrow at the top and flares out at the waist. This creates a slendering “A” shape that will help elongate your torso. The A-line flare isn’t as full as a ball gown’s skirt, but still flatters your lower half, making it the ideal wedding dress for this body type. 


Straight body types have a sleek figure—a sheath silhouette will flatter your natural shape by hugging your body in all the right places. This style will show off a straight figure in a chic and sophisticated way, making it the perfect wedding dress for this body type.


With broader shoulders you’ll want to opt for a wedding dress that balances your style by bringing attention to your hips. Like a mermaid gown, although a tad more subtle, a trumpet wedding dress narrows at the hips and legs, allowing you to really show off your lower body. You may also want to try a deep V neckline, which can also help balance your shoulders with your lower body.
