DRESS SHAPE DIARY

Despite the fact that we think bridal gown shopping is an awesome experience, we also understand that there are a lot of choices that make this decision overwhelming! There are endless silhouettes and styles to choose from! Our stylists find that explaining different silhouettes can help brides get a better idea of what they like. Here are examples of our favorite silhouettes!

 

A-Line

 

 

A-lines flare from the natural waist, but they have a much less full skirt, giving them a slanting shape. The A-line skirt makes you look slimmer by drawing attention to your waist. Brides and designers love this shape because it's universally flattering!

 

Fit and Flare

 

 

A fit and flare silhouette creates a slight hourglass shape. Instead of beginning at the knee, the skirt begins midway down the thigh, creating a relaxed silhouette!

 

Ball Gown

 

 

Wedding dresses with ball gown silhouettes are definitely the most popular! Typically, ball gown skirts are much larger than those of other silhouettes, reflecting the feeling of being a princess for the day. For brides on their wedding days, ball gowns are a dream come true. A church wedding would be perfect for this dress.
