Rectangle Body Shape

If your bust, waist and hips are mostly equal in their measurements, then you probably have a rectangle or straight body shape. Since there aren’t many curves with this type of body shape, you’ll need to find a dress to show off those curves you do have. Choosing a dress with a defined waistline or adding a belt can help to create the illusion of curves. If you’re looking for wedding dresses in Armadale, Riva Bridal has everything you need.   

The Hourglass Figure

If your hips and bust are almost equal in size and you have a defined waistline, you most likely have an hourglass body type. Choosing a dress with a body-hugging fit is perfect for your body. It will show off your curves and complement your body shape. High end bridal shops like Riva Bridal, will have the ideal dress for the hourglass figure.

Inverted Triangle Type

Inverted Triangle body shapes are brides with shoulders and a bust larger than their narrow hips and legs, with this body type you need to choose a dress that balances out your shape as your body type is more top-heavy. Ball gown and a-line dresses are perfect, as they balance out your body shape.

Athletic Body

Athletic body types usually have equal shoulder and hip measurements with a slightly smaller waist and defined shoulders. Since athletic body types have smaller waists, using a belt can help to give your waist a beautiful definition. Athletic body shapes tend to have great shoulders, so backless dresses are amazing to show this off. If you’re buying a wedding dress in Melbourne, you have to visit our onlinestore.

Triangle Body Shape

If your shoulders and bust are narrower than your hips, you either have a pear or triangle body shape. When choosing wedding dresses online, you want to select one that shows off your small waist and bust but doesn’t wrap too tightly around your hips, this creates the image of an hourglass figure. If you have a smaller bust try adding sleeves, interesting neckline, beading or lace to add some visual detailing and create a stunning look.
