Dress Shape Diary

With so many gorgeous wedding dresses to choose from, it can be overwhelming to know where to start your shopping journey! To narrow down your options, we recommend that you learn about the different dress shapes available, selecting your favorite, and going from there. Here’s a breakdown of some popular wedding dress silhouettes to start fueling your inspiration:

 

Ball Gown Silhouette:

 

Full and fluttering, the ball gown is fit for royalty and everyday women alike. This shape features a voluminous, rounded skirt and is guaranteed to help you make a statement down the aisle. You’re bound to feel like a princess in a ball gown wedding dress, like Style #1448 by Martina Liana shown above.

 

 

Mermaid Silhouette

 

Figure-flattering and oozing in romantic appeal, the mermaid silhouette hugs each of your curves with a fitted bodice from your bust to your knees, before flaring out in a skirt around your calves. This silhouette creates emphasis around an hourglass figure, and is perfect for brides looking for something sexy, like Style #AEGIR by Pronovias shown above.

 

 

A-line Silhouette

 

Classic and universally flattering, the A-line silhouette is fitted around your torso before gently flaring out into a skirt at your waist, which creates a soft A-shape in the fabric, hence its name. This offers a slimming effect, making this silhouette a popular choice for any taste, like Style #5947 by Morilee shown above.
