A-line wedding gowns feature a fitted bodice that gently flares down to the ground creating a classic and unbroken silhouette. It’s the perfect choice for pear and inverted triangle shaped figures to balance out the shoulders and hips and can create a curvier profile on a straight or athletic shape.
Choose an A-line fit for a pear-shape or apple-shape. One of the most important aspects of the dress is the fit. Before you go shopping, you should figure out what fit you are looking for. If you have a small bust and shapely thighs and hips, think about an A-line fit.
A-lines usually have a fitted bodice with a skirt that flares gently from the waist to form an “A” shape. They work for most body types and are a particularly good choice for pear shapes, or someone who does not want a tight fit on their lower body. You can accentuate your waist further by picking a dress with a decorative element like a sash or beading around the waist of the dress. Avoid a dress that is bunchy or overly embellished on the bottom half. This will make your hips and thighs look larger than they are.
The A-line dress is perfect for every body shape. It’s flattering for pears as well as apple shapes. Even those who are more of a rectangle will find that the A-line is a fantastic way to show off your assets while minimizing problem areas. The bodice of the dress is fitted with a dress that flows from the top area without a cinched waist. It’s shaped like an uppercase letter A from the bodice.
