You will have to shop at several places, have several appointments for fitting and do many alterations if your gown does not turn out to be what you had in mind. But one way to keep this simple is choosing a gown that fits your body type. Take a look the following tips to see what style fits you the best.

A person with a pear shaped body has narrow waist and shoulders with wide hips and thighs.

Petite Shape

In fashion, petite is the term for those who are 5’3 or under in height. If you want to look taller on your day, try an empire waist gown with a fitted bodice. Another style you can try is the A-line gown. They have a narrow waist and flare at the hips giving you more height. A-Line is also the perfect style to emphasize your waist and bust. A dress with a V-neck can create a taller look as well because it will make your torso look longer.
