Photos: Wedding Dresses for an Hourglass Body

Wedding dresses that show off your sexy curves will have you turning heads on your big day. Low drop waist and mermaid gowns have the best curve appeal for hourglass types, according to Julie Sabatino, owner of The Stylish Bride.  “The very low drop waisted dresses that are popular right now are great for an hourglass figure because they accentuate all of your curves,” she says. Sabatino also recommends choosing a dress with a ruched bodice to accentuate your enviably narrow waist.
