This flawless silhouette has a fitted bodice and flows out to the ground. It's one of the most popular bridal silhouettes, as it really flatters all shapes and sizes. As the title suggests, the A-line gown represents the outline of the letter A.
The ball gown is fitted at the bodice with a defined waistline and from there, follows a full skirt. Ball gowns are ideal for a busty bride, as it creates balanced proportions while also accentuating the waist.
This is fitted through the body and flares out from mid-thigh, creating the bell shape of a trumpet. This silhouette adds gorgeous curves to a straight figure.
Fit n' Flare
The fit n' flare silhouette, often confused with the trumpet gown, flares right below the hip and then gracefully flares out to the hem. The difference between the two silhouettes is; the trumpet starts to flare from mid-thigh and the fit n'flare, flares out from just below the hip.
This silhouette follows the body’s curves from top to bottom, giving a sleek, sexy shape. A sheath gown is ideal for petite brides, as the long lines lengthens the look of the body.
