Wiring for wall sconces in bathroom

In the middle of a master bathroom tearout and I'm changing the locations of my lighting. Is there a certain type of electrical box for wall sconces, since I'm sure the sconce mounts to the box and not to the wall?

Ok thanks. I'm just trying to find out right now if I need to move a stud or not, a gang box would be perfectly on center with my wall, but just wasn't sure if a sconce would work with that type of box.
doesn't the weight of the sconce usually hang on the box? if the box happened to not land on a stud would it be able to handle the weight?
