If your dream gown is one that hugs the body and shows off your curves in all the right places, then a form-fitting wedding dress is for you. Here at True Society, we have a wide selection of form-fitting wedding dresses that will have all eyes on you at your upcoming wedding. 

Whether you envision your gown as simple and clean or adorned with lace, a form-fitting wedding dress is a stunning option. Read on for our True Crew’s best tips on choosing and styling these elegant, form-fitting wedding dresses, as well as our few top choices from our designer collections. 

What Is a Form-Fitting Wedding Dress? 

When searching for form-fitting wedding dresses, brides will want to become familiar with the types of wedding dress silhouettes that fall under this category. Knowing the differences in advance will help you better communicate your desired style to your True Crew stylist. Here’s a breakdown of the most common form-fitting silhouettes: 

  • Fit-and-flare – A fit-and-flare wedding dress tightly hugs the body around the waist, bust and hips with a gorgeous flare out below the hips. 
  • Mermaid – The sultry mermaid silhouette is similar to the traditional fit and flare style, except this style dramatically flares out right below the knee.  
  • Column – The simple yet stunning column silhouette has a natural waistline while still remaining tailored and structured to the body. 

When choosing form-fitting wedding dresses, it’s all about finding the right balance between style and comfort. Yes, form-fitting dresses are meant to be tighter, but if you are feeling restricted with movement or struggling to breathe, that could be a sign that the dress is too tight or the incorrect size. Our True Crew stylists are expertly trained to take brides’ measurements and find a fit that best suits their body type to make shopping a breeze.

How to Accessorize a Form-Fitting Wedding Dress 

After you find your dream dress, the question is: what do you wear with it? You want to make sure that whatever bridal accessories you choose complement the design and fabric of your fitted wedding dress.  

Bridal Shoes: If your dress is filled with details like lace and sequins, you might want shoes that aren’t too flashy or fancy — yet still stylish!  A simple pair of white pumps or flats will give you all the impact you need without being too distracting from the rest of your outfit. For a minimalist gown, brides might want to add a pair of shoes with a fun design or embellishments like pearls or bows. 

Jewelry: When it comes to jewelry, stay away from big and chunky statement pieces so that they won’t take away from your standout figure-hugging silhouette. Instead, look for simple pieces that best fit your dress’s neckline and sleeve length. For instance, those with a V-neckline can opt for a single teardrop necklace and earrings. If your dress has short sleeves, wear an heirloom family bracelet or pick out something new when visiting a True Society store. 

Wedding Veils: There’s nothing quite like a wedding veil —some may call it the quintessential bridal accessory! Make a statement by complementing your simple form-fitting wedding dress with a detailed veil embellished with pearls. Brides can keep their look simple with a minimalist cathedral-length veil without edging or beadwork. If you want to take a modern approach or longer lengths just aren’t for you, a shoulder-length veil might just be the one for you! 

Choosing bridal accessories to complete your look on the big day can be an exciting journey. Whether you want to keep it classic or add some fun flair, you can’t go wrong with selecting pieces that best reflect your personality and style. Remember: it’s your day, so pick accessories that make you feel your most beautiful inside and out as you walk down the aisle!
