Choosing Your Wedding Gown – For an Hourglass Figure

trumpet wedding dress for an hourglass figure

This figure has a natural balance – show it off! Many different silhouettes – sheath, trumpet, a-line – will look fabulous on you. Choosing the right neckline and waistline are key.

Avoid high necklines, as open necklines like an off-the-shoulder are more flattering.

Wedding Gown Glossary

Accentuate your waist with a fitted waistline. (Natural waistline) Stay away from empire, basque, or drop waists. You want to accentuate your real waistline so stay away from high or low waistlines.

A trumpet skirt or ball gown will also beautifully enhance an hourglass shape.

Avoid spaghetti straps, but if you want a bit of coverage or support, cap sleeves are a good choice.
