Choosing Your Wedding Gown – For a Tall, Narrow Figure

A sheath, mermaid or trumpet style is for you, as they add gentle curves. Soft detailing on the bodice or sleeves gives the illusion of width. You’ll want a waistline that is at or close to your own natural waistline.

Buying Your Wedding Gown

Be careful with waistlines that are especially high (empire) or low (drop) as they can add additional height.

A basque waist (natural at the hip and dips down into a “v” or “u”) is also a good choice.
