If you've ever felt utterly overwhelmed with the prospect of choosing your wedding dress, you're not alone!

It may sound like a simple enough task, but once you start looking you will probably realise that it will take a lot of time, energy and effort to find the right dress for you.

So how do you know where to start looking?

Well, your body type says a lot about what kind of styles suit you best, and that's why we're going to share with you the best choices for many common body types!

1. A-Line

What it is: Flares out gently from the shoulder creating a subtle A shape.2

Looks best on: Almost anyone.

Not so good on: Some A-lines have a very fitted top, which will not be comfortable for everyone β€” especially those with bigger busts.

Morrill says, "An A-line dress is great for enhancing small busts, and for slimming larger hips.

It is flattering on everyone.

Additionally, the dress is not so huge as to be uncomfortable or a burden on a warm day or at an outside wedding."

2. Ball Gown

What it is: Fitted bodice with a full, bell-shaped, floor-length skirt.

Usually reserved for more formal weddings.

Looks best on: Tall brides and brides who are heavier on bottom than on top.

Not so good on: Shorter brides can get overwhelmed by the full skirt.

If you're a shorter bride and you have your heart set on a ball gown, make sure to get it altered to fit you.

Morrill says, "Ball gowns really show off a small waist.

They are wonderful for formal weddings, but be sure the folks doing the alterations install a strong and sturdy bustle.

I would avoid a ballgown that has extensive ribbing for a warm weather wedding as the heat can make everything swell and be uncomfortable."
