I think you're just my type...

Do you know what kind of dress is best for your body shape? B/c, to be completely honest, I haven't a clue! iVillage asked fashion designer and Project Runway alum, Austin Scarlett! You know he knows, he designs for Kenneth Pool!!! Amazing! I digress...let's see what he had to say!

First up....the A-Line. He describes this dresses "as the most flattering of all. They look slimming without losing the full-skirt traditional bridal feeling."

Next there is the Ball Gown dress. Or as I like to call it, the Princess Bride Dress. He says this dress will enhance small waistlines, while hiding those last ten pounds you've wanted to lose from your butt or thighs. So these are great if, like me, you want to minimize the appearance of your J-Lo or Kim Kardashin, which ever fits you. (If you don't get that, email me and I will explain, lol

Now there is the Sheath Dress. Looks like it was made sorta for a greek goddess...a very tall greek goddess at that! Well apparently I'm right. Okay half right. Austin says "They're great on petite brides, as well as tall brides." Who knew...

Last but not least, the Mermaid dress! These are a very popular wedding trend. We used one in our Couture photo shoot, it looked amazing on our model! "This shape accentuates a sexy figure, showing off curves through the body, then flaring into a full hemline." Tres Chic!

Austin also give his Do's and Don'ts for different body shapes! It's a great read! Check it out!
