Tall & Thin Body Type

Your Figure Defined

Find what dress suits your shape

You are characterized by a skinny frame with little or no curves. You are 5’6’ or taller. You are slender throughout.

From ballgown, princess/A line wedding dresses, straight and mermaid wedding dresses, all are great for the tall bride who can carry almost any dress style. Avoid empire line dresses that can look almost tent-like. An A-line skirt coupled with a strapless neckline looks great. Also consider an Off the shoulder or scoop with an A-line skirt. Either of these will add fullness to your slender shape. Detail at the waist, a belt, ribbons etc helps to shorten the body ad helps add a feminine touch.
