Wedding Gown: Flattering Wedding Dress for Boyish Figure?

Q:

I'm short -- 5'2" -- and have practically no waistline. What wedding dress can I wear that will create the illusion of curves?

A:

Stay away from big, poufy ball gowns. They definitely create curves, but such a big wedding dress might seem like it's wearing petite you! A slim sheath with a fuller overskirt or train is a better bet; it will give you just enough fullness to look curvy. If you would like a more traditional wedding gown, look at A-line styles (they're also called princess gowns). Because they are seamless through the waist, they elongate the torso and skim over your hips in a superflattering way.
