Ball Gowns

These gowns are fitted to the waistline and then flares out to a full skirt. This silhouette is great for majority of body types. We wouldn’t recommend this shape for petite brides because it tends to cut the body and become overwhelming. But it is a great silhouette for brides with larger hips or brides wanting to show off their waist and but not their hips.

A-line

These gowns are fitted to the waistline and then flares out creating an ‘A’ shape or bell shape. There are also drop-wait A-line gowns that are fitted to the top of the hip and then flare to the ‘A’ shape skirt. This silhouette is great for all body types.

Trumpet/ Fit and Flare

This silhouette is fitted through the body down to the thighs and flares above the knee. This style is great for hourglass shapes, petite, or any bride wanting to show off her curves.

Sheath

This style of gown is slightly fitted but falls straight to the ground. It has a little flow but sticks to the straight silhouette. These gowns are best for straight body types or pear shapes.
