Q – I have a pear-shaped figure. What style of dress do you recommend to show my shape off?
"We find most brides with pear-shaped figures want to accentuate their waists. The perfect gown for this is an A-line or what some people call a princess-style. This pulls the waist in tight with a structured bodice and fuller skirt. This shape is by far the most flattering and can be worn with a waistline or no waist seam to create a streamlined look.
"The detail can vary from satin to full beads and floral lace. Consider adding sleeves, a higher neckline, a corset back, sequins or glitter to create a gorgeous look."
