If you’ve been shopping for bridal gowns, then chances are, the word silhouettes is a buzzword you are very familiar with. In this blog, we breakdown the four main silhouettes of bridal.

A-line gowns are fitted through the natural waist and flair out softly. They are fantastic gowns for creating a soft, fairytale feel. They tend to be extremely comfortable, but also add a touch of elegance to a bridal look.

Ballgowns are fitted through the natural waist and flare out dramatically. This stunning silhouette adds a princess feel to the wedding day, with a touch of fun and excitement.

Sheath gowns feature a slim silhouette that hugs your body. This style is ideal for showing off a bride’s figure without any added drama, and is known for elongating the body and provide a sense of sophistication.

Fit and flare gowns, also called mermaid or trumpet gowns, hug your figure and flare out. This style of gown is fantastic for highlighting a bride’s shape, and can be a unique mixture of sexy and romantic.

What will flatter you best? We suggest trying on each silhouette and being open to the possibility of finding something unexpected.
