  • Apple body type 
  • Busty body type 
  • Hourglass body type
  • Petite body type 
  • Pear body type 
  • Slender body type

Search online these body types to understand that in which category you are falling. With all designer formal gowns, some features and specifications are mentioned. Read them carefully to know whether it is meant for your body type or not.

Type of event
