Any dress that effectively breaks you up into sections (bust, hips and calfs) are normally other ones to forgo, but gowns that help to maximise the length of your body get a big thumbs up. A-line skirts teamed either with bodices or a Princess Line top will work well - the latter creating a single line the length of your body and giving it a somewhat elongated look.


Whatever you opt for, make sure that you try on a dress of comparable size to the one you will order. A clever seamstress should be able to alter any dress so that it fits like a glove, but if you are looking to get the skirt on a gown shortened, make sure that you speak to someone before hand and confirm that this is possible.


Overall, your best bet is to shop around and try on different things. Whilst we have touched on some designs that may work and some that won't, it is very much a matter of personal preference. Our Dress Shopping article provides some good pointers and ideas and is a good place to head once you are finished here.


Tall Ladies

Whilst the average height for a lady in the UK is 5'4", some women will soar well above this figure. Whether it's genetic, or simply the result of too many Shredded Wheat, hundreds, if not thousands, of tall Brides each year face the same dilema each year - trying to find a dress that will suit their eyecatching height.


Luckily, when it comes to Wedding Dresses, the taller lassies get it quite easy.
