The wedding dress with a ball gown silhouette might be the perfect figure-flattering option. Its full skirt is exceptionally forgiving, especially if you’re a little self-conscious about your lower body. But don’t you worry; we have the perfect dresses just for you. The classic ball gown can help to define a wider waistline, cover a heavier bottom, and transform you into one dreamy fairytale queen. Our editors at MODwedding have selected 15 of the most divine wedding dresses with ball gown silhouettes.

7 If you’re more of a glamour girl, then a beaded bodice might be the route to take. Such a style could really work well with your ball gown. Just be sure not to over do it with flashy jewelry.
