Maplewood Bridal designer are caters to curvy figures. So whether you want to flaunt your curves, shape your silhouette or show off your best assets, here is our curvy girl’s guide to gown shopping!
1 Busty Brides
Full skirts with a fitted waist are great for balancing out a large bust. Opt for a halter style or illusion neckline to keep the girls in place. Avoid a low back and strapless gowns—we incorporate a bra and bustier in your dress, busty brides need full support.
2 Thick Waist
A fitted-waist gown with a full bottom creates a natural waistline and is a great option for an apple shape. A gown drop waist gown with a fit-and-flare style is also a great way to add some structure to your midsection.
3 Hips & Booty
If you’re smaller up top but you’ve got lots of hip action and a robust booty, a high-waisted gown with a flowy skirt will minimize your hips, tummy and rear. Sleek and sexy neckline draw attention away from your bottom half.
If you’re curvy all over, choose a fitted gown with a flared or trumpet-style skirt and a cinched natural waist that will showcase your shape. You want to stay away from ballgowns or highwasted gowns they will make you look larger than you are.
