REVEL Picks: Flattering Wedding Gowns

Everyone wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day. But what's more important than a fabulous ball gown or bejeweled bodice is making sure you look your BEST. Everyone's body is different, so not all top trends are flattering. Today we're bringing your our picks of flattering wedding gowns! 

From a cinched waist to flattering sleeves or a rouched bodice or full skirt, elements of these wedding styles will make sure you look YOUR best on your big day! Are you petite? Steer clear of full ball gowns as they'll only make you look shorter. Instead, try a simple A line gown. For pear shapes, an Empire waist will help hide your hips while showing off your other curves. Vertical detailing like beading or ruffles will always help elongate your shape and a belt or sash at the waist will help draw attention to the smallest part of your body. So what do you think ladies? Which is your favorite?

Beaded shoulders top off this elegant ivory silk gown by Reem Acra. A pleated bodice twists and flows into an easy skirt with a subtle train. Pleated waistband and light side boning. Hidden side zip. Jeweled cap sleeves. Fully lined.


Strapless Silk Chiffon Gown

Ruched, gathered panels wrap the strapless sweetheart bodice of a fairy tale silk chiffon gown captured by a jewel-encrusted band at the waist. The long skirt of this Theia beauty is lined with a tulle crinoline for floor-sweeping fullness.


Silk Organza Striped Gown

The Radio City gown by 57Grand is the epitome of modern elegance. The striped organza overlay skirt is clean, architectural, and whisper light. Dress is made of a satin base, with silk organza overlay. Matching silk organza sash included.


Silk Chiffon Ruffle Dress

A dreamy vision, the Boathouse gown by 57Grand features a layer of ethereal, translucent silk chiffon from the waist down, above the floor length silk cotton skirt. Delicate chiffon ruffles line the shoulder and the gown's front and back. Peaked waist sits high, similar to an empire waist fit for a slimming and elongating effect.

Silk Mermaid Gown

Pleats and a notched cutout shape the bodice of a silk shantung gown with a skirt that's flared below the hips and lined with a tulle crinoline for added fullness. The floor-sweeping train ensures a dramatic exit and can be easily bustled for a night of dancing. 


Embellished Ball Gown

The floor-sweeping length of this Theia strapless ball gown will cast a spell on him forever. Embellished with a beaded bodice and ruched waist, this ball gown announces your arrival.


Embellished V-Neck Gown
