Generally speaking, fit & flare wedding dresses are ideal for all body types while trumpet is great for hourglass figures. It happens to be our most favourite silhouette and most of our bridal designs start with this shape in mind.

Larger sized brides will look beautiful in fit & flare dresses. The main thing you want to avoid is body-hugging designs that flare from the knees or above. The choice of fabric can also help you appear more slender. Choose a light fabric such as chiffon and silk over bulky fabrics such as velvet and satin.
