Celebrate your shape! Highlight your smaller top half and balance out your figure with a full skirt.
Wedding dress Dos Look for a skirt that gradually flares out in an A-formation from the natural waist to the floor, highlighting the narrowness of the midsection and floating away from the hips and thighs. Prom-dress and fairy-tail styles will do the same thing. A spaghetti-strap bodice or a V-neckline will showcase a more slender upper body.
Wedding Dress Don’ts A fishtail dress will generally emphasise your lower half and make you look unbalanced. Floaty dresses can be difficult too as you will need to find one that matches your proportions. It may fit your bottom half, but it could look too big on the top.
Keep in mind A classic A-line silhouette lends itself to formal weddings, but it can easily be dressed down in a more casual fabric.
