Being a curvy bride shouldn’t put a damper on your bridal gown search or make you apprehensive about dress shopping. Designers are catering to curvy figures now more then ever. So whether you want to flaunt your curves, shape your silhouette or show off your best assets, here is our curvy girls guide to gown shopping! Check out the Every Body Collection from Floravere! 


Busty Brides

Full skirts with a fitted waist are great for balancing out a large bust. Opt for a halter style or illusion neckline to keep the girls in place. Avoid low back and strapless gowns, busty brides need full support.


Thick Waist

A fitted waist gown with a full bottom creates a natural waistline and is a great option for an apple shape. A gown that is fitted below the hip with a fit in flare style is also a great way to add some structure to your mid section. 


Hips & Booty

If you're smaller up top but you’v got lots of hip action and a robust booty, a high waisted gown with a flowy skirt will minimize your hips, tummy and rear. Also opt for a sleek and sexy neckline to draw attention away from your bottom half. 


Hour Glass

If you're curvy all over choose a fitted gown with a flared or trumpet style skirt and a cinched natural waist that will showcase your shape. Flowy styles, ball gowns or high wasted gowns will make you look larger than you are.
