Mother of the Bride Dresses – The Essential Dress Style Guide for your Body Shape

If the big day is fast approaching then one of the main items on any mother of the bride to do list is to pick out their outfit. Of course, you are going to want to look your absolute best for your daughter’s big day and so you should! If you are struggling to find a look that complements your body shape then this essential guide has everything you need to know.

Pear shaped women

Pear shaped women are beautifully curvaceous, with a wider bottom half than the top. It is important in this case to flatter your best assets and cover up what you would prefer to hide! A dress with an A-Line skirt will balance out your hips with your legs, giving you a more even appearance. Any frills or features of the dress should really be at the top, to show off your shoulders and make you look bigger up top too. A deep V-neck dress will highlight your bust area and draw attention to what you have got! Finish off with a waist belt, or fitted jacket, to cinch you in at your smallest area.

Hour glass shaped women

Those who have well balanced hips and bust, with a smaller waist, are hour glass shaped. This curvy shape looks absolutely stunning in pretty much anything and is ‘the’ vintage look of the moment. Think Marilyn Monroe with a 1950’s style fitted frock that has an A-Line or pleated skirt and fitted top. Don’t be afraid of a body-con look as your curves are your best feature! If you are worried about lumps and bumps showing up then invest in some body control underwear that will hide anything you don’t want people to see. Those who would prefer to show less should opt for a shift dress instead which will look amazing on the big day. Remember to finish off with a nicely fitted jacket for chillier days and a stunning hat.

Rectangular or athletic shaped women

For those who go straight up and down, or have very few curves then the World is pretty much your oyster (you lucky things)! If you want to give the illusion of curves then remember to use accessories such as belts to cinch your waist in and low necklines to give the illusion of a larger bust area. Patterns are a great way of highlighting your assets too, so you can be as daring as you like. If you would prefer to opt for something less body-con and more floaty then be sure to pick a flowing skirt that does not swallow you up.

Whatever your body shape there will always be the perfect dress to suit you. It is important to try on various outfits, with the help of friend, before deciding what flatters and what doesn’t! If you are confused as to what body shape you may be then pop to a local dress store and ask them to take your measurements before deciding which style would suit you best!
