Wedding Dresses for Pear-Shaped Brides

Wedding Dress & Jewelry

We’ve compiled the do’s and don’ts for the pear-shaped bride, so we’re showing you exactly which wedding dress will flatter your figure on the big day.

Pear-shaped women who are wider at the bottom can typically be a minimum of one size larger in trousers than in tops. You lucky ladies have a great waist and curves in the best places.

Do’s for pear shapes

Balance, balance, and more balance!
So for brides, the target having a feminine hourglass silhouette. But just because you weren’t naturally blessed this sought-after shape, doesn’t mean you can’t create the illusion of one. As your hips are the widest a part of your body, the plan is to make them look smaller by drawing the attention to your top half.

Accentuate your top half
Draw attention to your slender shoulders and bust with feathers, frills, bows, and beading. A cap-sleeved gown with a cinched waist or an easy a-line skirt that splays gradually is a perfect style.

Wide-set straps
Hear us out; wider straps can add volume to shoulders and bust area (that’s a fact, right?) and provides you with those voluminous upper body curves you’ve been craving.

Don’ts for pear shapes

Don’t draw attention to your bottom half
While most of the time, we encourage you to flaunt what God gave you, on your day, drawing attention to the derriere area might be a tad…distracting. Meaning, tight-fitting mermaid and fishtail gowns that hug your body are out! Also, attempt to stand back from large bows.

No Sheath
Sheath gowns are usually made up of clingy material, which clings to your bottom half and that we guarantee all eyes are going to be on you for the wrong reasons.


Hi, I'm Alison and welcome to my wedding blog.

I had been preparing for my wedding since I was 8. I even chose wedding planning as a career, which I love. When it was my time for the big day, I wanted it to be perfect, like a fairy tale. I did everything in my hand to plan it to the last detail. Some small things didn't come up as I had planned, but most of them did, and I realised I was good at it and felt proud of what I do for a living.

I created this blog to share everything that I have learned over the year and to help others who need a hand on planning their wedding, and are feeling lost.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.
