Here Are 11 Stunning Wedding Dress Styles for Curvy Girls:

1 A-Line Cut

A-line cut gowns are perfect for brides who are wanting a little more coverage. How, you ask? The waist begins right under the bust line, which goes into a flattering A-line silhouette.

2 Dropped Waist Band

The goal for curvier women is to show off and enhance their beautiful curves. To achieve this on your wedding day, a dropped waist band does wonders! The struggle for curvier women is the feeling that we lack a waist. However, with a dropped waist band, a bodice is created, as well as a fullness towards the end of the gown, therefore complimenting the hips.

3 Ball Gown Inspired

Naturally when we think ball gowns, we think back to Princess Diaries and the beautiful gowns Anne Hathaway wore. It’s every girls dream to be a princess and so why not up the royal anté on your wedding day? This silhouette is ideal for pear-shape figures. The cinched in waist creates a beautiful hour-glass shape and shows off your smaller upper-half.

4 Mermaid Wedding Gowns

Mermaid dresses can be a bit daunting but they are super fun! The trick is to have your dream dress designed so that the flair begins above the knees to give the illusion of longer legs.

5 Trumpet Wedding Gowns

A trumpet cut silhouette is very similar to the mermaid cut. However, the difference is that a trumpet dress begins its flair at mid-thigh. This is incredibly flattering as it plays with the various proportions of your body and hugs your curves in all the right places.

6 Corset Wedding Gowns

Wedding dresses with a corset feature are incredibly sexy and flattering for fuller figures. The corset creates a smaller waist and bigger bust – and it is also amazing for providing support to your bust.
