Do you need something that will accentuate your curves, or are you looking to magnify your waist? Well, hello there; these are two of the most common questions asked when brides head in for their bridal appointment. Here’s a quick understanding of 7 silhouettes to make your choice easier:
A-line has to be a universal favorite as it never fails to compliment any body type, especially the curvy brides. An A-line dress remains snug until the waist and then flares out softly to create an ‘A’ shape that makes the bride look taller and slimmer. Your bust, too, is going to be all things flattering in this dress.
As the name suggests, the mermaid dress contours the chest to the knees emphasizing the hips and waist region. It’s flared after the knees making it perfect for our apple-shaped girls. Tip: Wear body shapewear if you want to be able to move in your mermaid dress.
The trumpet is a toned-down version of the former. Unlike mermaid, its straight bodice ends at the hips, allowing the flare to start mid-thigh length. It’s the perfect match to an hourglass body type and slender frames, so you can truly flaunt what your mama gave ya!
4. Ball Gown
The ball gown is no less than a fairytale and checks all the right boxes for classic, drama, and volume. If you’ve got an admirable bust and slim hips, this silhouette will fit and flare perfectly as it accentuates the waist with the fuller top, while the voluminous top can hide the lower end of the body.
Here comes the chic bride! A slip dress is all things minimal and sophisticated. You may design the slip dress with measurements of the cowl neck, back detailing, and bias-cut for more definition. You’re sure to make a case for less is more!
The head-to-toe figure-hugging fit of the sheath gown contours the body giving the dinky bride an elongated look; and more body definition for the tall bride. This is a style, minus the train, that’s modern yet comfortable, allowing you to dance the night away.
The column silhouette is similar but not interchangeable with a sheath silhouette. A column gown makes use of more fabric and is made to order to truly help the bride flaunt her slender, lean figure. Hear, hear all my athletic framed ladies, and don’t hesitate before picking a column gown for yourself.
