Shopping for a beautiful and cheap wedding dress can get a little stressful. To reduce the stress, do keep in mind when it comes to wedding dress shopping always choose a dress that works for your body type. The most common body type among women is a pear-shaped body. The term “pear-shaped” comes from the shape of an actual pear. This body type means a wider hip than shoulders. A pear-shaped woman's body is usually smaller on top and they have larger hips, thighs and bottoms. A bride with a pear-shaped body may also have different sizes on the bottom half of the body. This makes it difficult to find clothing that fits well in all the right places.

What Wedding Dress Is Perfect For Pear-Shaped Brides

But, what about pear-shaped women? What type of dresses could fit this body shape?
