When it comes to looking and feeling beautiful on your wedding day, a figure-flattering wedding dress is key. Not sure where to start? You’re in luck … Today, we’re sharing the best wedding dress silhouettes for hourglass-shaped brides!
If the width of your shoulders and your hips are roughly the same, with a narrower waist in between—you’ll want a gown to really do those curves justice. You may want to avoid relaxed shapes like sheaths, columns or gowns with empire waists (cinched just below the bust)—as the curves you want to highlight can easily be lost in these silhouettes. But don’t worry … we’ve got you covered. These designer wedding dresses will help you hourglass-shaped brides rock your figure from every angle!
First up, we have a classic fit-and-flare style from Essense of Australia. This beautiful silhouette features a strapless sweetheart neckline for a sleek and slender feel, while sheer side cutouts wrap around the waist and extend over the back to really accentuate your narrowest part. Flaring out below the hips and bedecked with floral sequin laces, this dress will have you stealing the show from head to toe.
Take the plunge with this stunner from Essense of Australia! This A-line gown features sparkling laces and a frothy skirt that gently floats away from the waistline, while the shape of the plunging V-neckline highlights the hourglass shape—creating an open decolletage and tapering toward the middle.
This fit-and-flare gown from Martina Liana is a floral masterpiece! This romantic, off-the-shoulder style comes alive with wild, organic florals throughout the silhouette—while the voluminous flared skirt complements the ruching in back to really play up the curves. The raw hem on the train creates a frothy effect, adding to the carefree nature of this natural beauty!
Ballgowns are always a good idea, especially for those with an hourglass shape! The grand, full skirt hits at the waist—really accenting your narrowest part, slenderizing your upper body. The shaping of this particular style from Martina Liana features luxurious pleating (and pockets), in addition to the delicate paper laces trailing throughout the gown for added dimension.
Last, but not least … No one makes a statement like Miss Stella York! This totally figure-flaunting showstopper will make sure all eyes are on you. With a dramatically layered horsehair skirt, this gown also features silver laces and shimmer sequin that will catch both the light and your heart.
