A BRIDES GUIDE TO WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTES

A BRIDES GUIDE TO WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTES

When shopping for your dream wedding dress you are faced with a number of beautiful options and LOTS of new terminology. Words like “ballgown”, “organza”, “chiffon”, and “drop waist” start being mixed into conversation. While you can always trust the bridal experts at Maggie Louise to find the perfect gown for your personality, shape, and wedding day style, we thought we would clear the air on the meanings behind some of these bridal terms.

BALLGOWN

A classic bridal style, the ballgown features a full skirt with a natural waist and a more fitted bodice. This timeless bridal silhouette is perfect for the bride who always dreamed of their perfect princess moment.

A-LINE

As the name gives hint to, the A-line silhouette resembles the structure of an A with a tighter fit at the rib cage and extends into the skirt. This style is popular style and translated beautifully onto a number of different body types.

MERMAID

Perfect for the brides who want to highlight their beautiful curves, the Mermaid silhouette hugs the curves of the body with a flare at or below the knee. This style allows for the drama of movement while still maintaining a form fitted look.

FIT AND FLARE

Another beautiful wedding dress silhouette to accent a beautiful shape is the Fit-to-Flare. This shape hugs the curves with a flare starting at or just below the hips. For brides who love to dance, this beautiful style definitely passes the dance test with the skirt allowing for plenty of movement.

SHEATH

This wedding dress silhouette is perfect for the bride looking for a light, romantic wedding day look with plenty of movement. The sheath shape typically skims the body with material falling straight to the floor.

TRUMPET

Similar to the Fit and Flare silhouette, the Trumpet shape fits closely to the body accenting a bride’s curves with a flare mid-thigh. This is a classic design and very flattering to a variety of body shapes.
