If you have hips that are larger than your bust, a well-defined waist and slightly fuller hips and bottom then you’re a perfect pear shape!  If that sounds like you then the following figure-flattering styles are the perfect wedding dresses for pear shaped brides to try: - A-line - Ball Gown - Empire - Princess-line - Short Princess-line gowns and panelled A-line dresses look stunning on women with a pear shaped body. Both styles flow smoothly down with no break or line at the waist, which balances out your proportions. They’ll neatly show off your waist and skim effortlessly over your hips, the widest part of the body. If you want to highlight rather than hide your fabulous curves then try a fishtail dress or a design with a dropped waist that hugs your hips. A top tip is to choose a larger dress size to fit your hips then get it altered at the top to fit snuggly around the bust. Alternatively go for a lace-up back that you can tighten exactly where you need to! Remember, for a stunning strapless style, you'll need a good supportive basque or strapless bra underneath. Try to avoid thin straps too or skirts with pleated or gathered fabric which will accentuate your hips. Not sure of your shape? If you're generally in proportion then read more on the classic hourglass shape but if you're pretty much in line you could be a ravishing rectangle. We’ve pulled together a selection of our favourite wedding dresses to suit pear shaped figures.
