Wedding Dress Shopping for an Hourglass Figure

If you’re lucky enough to have the highly feminine and desirable hourglass figure, then we are here to help you shop! A typical hourglass figure is one with balanced proportions – a bust and hips with a defined waist. Luckily for you it is hard to go wrong and any silhouette should look good on you so it is down to personal taste. We would recommend you opt for something which will make the most of your proportions such as a mermaid or fish tail gown, and avoid something which will drown your curves.

Here are some of our favourite Morilee wedding dresses for an hourglass figure…

Anastasia, style number 2174 is our stunning mermaid gown with plunging neckline and sheer back and sleeves. It is made from sparkle tulle and net with embroidered appliques, crystal and pearl beading. It is available in warm hues of ivory/honey, ivory/sand/honey and ivory/ivory and in 3 lengths; 55”, 58” or 61”.

Alexis, style number 2182 is our show-stopping flounced mermaid gown made of tulle and organza with pearl and clear crystal beading. We love the sheer back with visible bodice boning and daring on-trend sheer sides. There is frosted medallion embroidery and beaded straps to complete the look – we love it! Available in white/porcelain, ivory/honey or ivory/champagne/honey. Also available in 3 lengths.

Arabella, style 5866, from our Blu Collection is another fabulously flounced ball gown skirt this time paired with a plunging halter neckline. With less detail this is a great gown if you wish to accessorise with chunky bangles, big earrings or a statement hairband. Available in ivory/honey or ivory/sand/honey.
