Recapping on the previously two blogs on the perfect dress for your body shape, it is critical to look the best you can, by starting with your unique shape. Some body shapes are easy to dress, like the hourglass, but others need a bit more skill! My previous blog spoke about the Pear Shape and today I talk about the Inverted Triangle, the opposite of the Pear Shape.
Women with this body type typically, have broad shoulders, small hips and long slender legs.
Do: Choose a full skirt to balance out your wide shoulders and often large bust. A mermaid or Fit & Flare can also work if the differential is not too great.
Don’t: Wear halter necks or off the shoulder if you are conscious of having wider shoulders.
Some ideal styles of wedding dress for your body shape are:
1. The mermaid style of wedding dress, which is slender on the bodice and then tapers out into a short train, is a great choice for an inverted-triangle body type.
2. The Ball Gown silhouette, with a full skirt and tighter bodice, is another great choice.
3. A short gown can be another way to help balance out your shoulders. A shorter gown can draw attention to your legs and away from your upper torso. This means it can be great dress choice to choose if you already have a stunning pair shoes in mind.
Flattering necklines to consider
V-neck and u-neck necklines flatter an inverted triangle body type, as they draw the eyes away from broader shoulders.
Define your waist
Those with an inverted triangle body type, generally have smaller waists, so it’s a great idea to highlight this area. Opt for dresses with a fitted bodice, like ball gowns, to bring attention to the waistline. You may even consider a sash or a waist decorated with beading.
Finding a flattering wedding dress for you
As a woman with an inverted triangle body type, look out for dresses with full skirts, v-neck necklines and a sash around the waist. As we’ve established in this series of posts, there really is a dress to suit every shape and size. You should expect to look your very best on your wedding day, and we’re here to help!
