25 jaw-dropping dresses to flatter the apple shaped bride

We bring you 25 sensational wedding dresses that look incredible on the apple shaped bride…

Apple shaped ladies tend to be top heavy – they usually have a full tummy, an undefined waist, rounded shoulders and an average to large bust. Lucky apples have enviably slim and shapely legs and arms. You don’t have to have a very large belly to be an apple shape –but if an apple-shaped woman gains weight it tends to be stored around her waistline and tummy area.

There are hundreds of stunning wedding dress styles to flatter an apple-shaped bride and we’ve rounded up our favourites from 2016 collections.

Emphasise that bust

If you are an apple then you must have the fab bust associated with this shape. Show it off ladies – this will not only emphasise your best bits but also draw attention away from your middle.

Avoid halter, high and boat necklines, and opt for plunging and deep-V necklines instead – styles that elongate your upper body and just so happen to be a key trend of 2016.

Scoop, sweetheart and square necklines are also great options for apples.

The right shape for you

Choose a dress where the cut flows down from the bust; empire line and high-waistlines are great options, however the number one silhouette for apple-shaped brides is the A-line. The cut skims over the middle area while emphasising the bust and creating the illusion of a defined waist. Avoid drop-waisted wedding dresses as they will look quite unflattering on your shape.

Another trick to emphasise the waist is to choose a wedding dress with a built in belt, or accessorise with a sparkly bridal belt.
