A banana body shape has a strong, angular frame and suits styles that soften and show off a toned figure. Complimentary wedding dress styles include; Column, sheath, draping, gathering and ruffle. If you are a beautiful banana Bride then avoid ball gown styles, as they can make you look unbalanced if you are boyish on top.
