I’m a pear. I’m an apple. I’m a banana. Yay! Wait, huh? You’ve been told your body resembles a shape of fruit… now what? Maybe you’ve searched “How to dress your body type” and found that there are a million opinions, especially when it comes to finding the best wedding dresses for your body type.

How to dress your body type: My body is a what?According to John Mayer, your body is a wonderland, but that's a whole different post. There are four general body shapes that are used most often: apple, pear, banana, and hourglass.
Banana: You have a straight build with less waist definition (also known as athletic or rectangle shaped). Hourglass: You’re all that and a bag of chips! You have equal weight in your bust and hips with a very defined waist (think Jessica Rabbit). Apple: You have thin hips and legs with a wider chest and torso (also known as barrel shaped). Pear: Your hips are wider than your shoulders. You have a great, defined waist. I personally identify with being a pear. Not only is it a delicious fruit, but it is also how my body is shaped; I have a smaller top and a plentiful bottom. Once you know how to define how you’re shaped, it will be easier to figure out how to dress your body type and find the best wedding dresses for your body type.
