Wedding Dress Shopping for an Apple Shape

An apple shaped body is someone who has broader shoulders, a fuller bust and a less defined waist. These ladies may also have a split sized body where they may shop for a different size top to their trousers. They may have slim legs, but a fuller bottom and hips.

When shopping for a wedding dress as an apple shape the best advice would be to look for a gown that will define your waist to balance out your silhouette. Look for A-lines and princess ball gowns. As for necklines v-necks are fabulous and draw the attention upwards.

Agatha, style number 2173 ticks a lot of boxes for apple shapes with a plunging V-neckline, wide straps for support and an A-line ballgown silhouette. Brides will love this design as it features stunning detailed appliques and comes in 3 different hues: white/porcelain, ivory/honey and ivory/champagne/honey.

Serafina, style number 1015 from our Madeline Gardner Couture range is a luxury ball gown made with Chantilly lace. It too has a plunging v-neckline with thick straps and wonderful sequins for a hint of sparkle. This dress comes in Ivory/Rose and is available with or without the bodice lining for a personalised look.

For our curvier apple shaped brides you will want to avoid lower waists and mermaid shapes which draw attention to your middle. We have a whole range of wedding dresses for the curvier bride in our Julietta collection which comes in UK sizes 18-34. A great shape to look at is Alyssa, style number 3308. Featuring a sweetheart neckline, sheer sleeves and tulle ballgown the layered look draws attention away from your middle.

Another great look with flounced overlay, this time with a V-neckline is our stunning Sharona gown; style 3284. Featuring luxurious crystal and pearl beaded lace appliques you will be sure to feel like a princess on your wedding day.
