Wedding Dresses if you’re Pear-Shaped
Wedding dress shopping, where to begin? Every bride wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day and an important part of this is finding the ‘Perfect Dress’! We have created this blog specifically for our Pear-Shaped Brides to help you in choosing the perfect wedding dress for your body shape.
The pear shaped body is one of the the most common body structures amongst women. If your hips and backside are wider than your shoulders, you’re the lucky owner of a pear-shaped body.
Shopping for Wedding Dresses if you’re Pear-Shaped can be frustrating as a problem with having this figure is that the difference between the small shoulders and heavier thighs gives the appearance of looking heavy bottomed. If you are a pear, your fashion goal is to elongate your figure so that you look less bottom-heavy. When dressing your body, it’s all about keeping everything balanced and proportional. It is important for pear shapes to highlight the top half of their body to contrast the lower half.
Here are the best wedding dress silhouettes for pear-shaped figures:
A fitted bodice through the waist that flares out to the ground. If the skirt resembles the shape of the letter ‘A’, you’ve got an A-line bridal gown. An A-line gown emphasises a narrow midsection while minimising hips and thighs.

A fitted bodice with a high waistline that sits just below bust. The empire style showcases the waistline and brings eyes up and away from hips.
Marked by a full skirt and small waist, this dramatic silhouette is great accentuating the waist and camouflaging problem areas in the hips and thighs.
