Here at Anomalie, we believe there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing the right dress design. The right gown will be, unsurprisingly enough, the one that feels right. And what better way to highlight your favorite features than with a dress that compliments your figure? If you’re an apple-shaped gal, seek styles that showcase your bust, legs and arms. Don’t know where to start? We’re here to lend a hand!
Keep scrolling to see which dresses flatter your apple shape!
Circle Skirt & A-Line
You’ll love slipping into silhouettes that define your waist without being too snug. A silky sash will always add a nice touch and you can experiment to see where you prefer your dress to nip. If you ask us, an empire waist is ultra reliable; try a sleek, layered design or a more structured fabric.
Since the ball gown dress cinches your waist, this is also a great choice especially if you go with a corset bodice. We also stand behind a good empire-waist ball gown!
High-Low & Midi Dresses
The best way to highlight your legs? Show ‘em, of course! Whether you prefer a little asymmetrical play with a high-low dress, or you want to keep it classic with a midi, this is a sure-fire way to draw attention to those enviable gams.
Let’s Talk Necklines…
The name of the game is V-neck. Whether you prefer a plunging or a shallow neckline, it’s up to you! A cowl neck or scoop neck will also stylize your frame while highlighting your bust in a flattering way. Want to show your arms? Go with a sweetheart strapless, sleeveless or spaghetti straps. Wish to cover your arms? Just avoid puffy or roomy sleeves and you’ll be all set!
Ditch the Rules
You might be apple-shaped but your body is 100% unique! Remember that this is just a guide and there’s a different sweet spot for everyone. Try on dresses to find that perfect silhouette-neckline symbiosis, and partner with your Stylist to create the look you love! Like we said, there is no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to wedding dresses. At the end of the day, what matters is how YOU feel in the dress.
