A-Line dresses are fitted to the waist, and then flare out gradually to the hem of the dress. This silhouette extends along the body into the shape of an ‘A’.


Fitted through the body, this silhouette structure forms a flare at the knees but is slightly less contoured. This style is a form fitted dress with more movement than a mermaid offers. Fit & flare dresses are known to elongate the body.


The ballgown silhouette is known for its full skirt. This style can make any bride feel like a princess. It can minimize any bride’s waistline with its fitted bodice and voluminous skirt.


Mermaid silhouettes show off curves with a fitted, body-hugging gown that shapes over the line of the hips and thighs, and flares out below the knee.
