Dress Shape Diary

When shopping for a wedding gown, you might feel overwhelmed by the number of silhouettes! To find the perfect dress at Romashka Bridal, a bride should understand the different silhouettes. Here are some popular silhouettes to keep in mind when choosing your wedding dress!


Ball Gown

Allure Bridals

There is no doubt that ball gown silhouettes are the most popular for wedding dresses! A ball gown typically features a much larger skirt than other silhouettes and embodies what it's like to be a princess for a day. It is a dream come true to wear a ball gown on your wedding day. This dress is perfect for a church wedding!

 

Fit and Flare

Sottero And Midgley

As opposed to a mermaid or trumpet gown, a fit and flare dress has a much tamer flare. Its curves are more natural looking, creating a universally flattering shape! This silhouette exemplifies elegance and understatement.

 

Mermaid

Maggie Sottero

Due to the dramatic shape of mermaid wedding dresses, you can show off your curves. Your torso is also highlighted by the longer bodice! This is another popular wedding style, along with lace and embroidered florals.

 

A-Line

Rebecca Ingram

A-line dresses are universally flattering and comfortable because of their flared skirt and fitted waist. You can emphasize your waist or upper body with this dress, regardless of your body shape. This silhouette is perfect for garden weddings!

 

Trumpet

Essense Of Australia

 

As a new take on the mermaid silhouette, the trumpet silhouette features an exaggerated flare at the mid-thigh instead of the knee. A bride who wants to elongate her legs and feel a little more comfortable than with a mermaid dress should consider this style. This will allow you to show off your curves to their full potential!
