The silhouette of choice for brides with a royal sense of style, ball gowns are striking and dramatic. Defined by a full skirt and fitted bodice, this style is a great choice for anyone with a slender figure as it creates the illusion of curves. Make a grand entrance in the flounced skirt of our Mindy dress or glisten in the crystal beading and lace appliques of blush pink Massima.
Sometimes the simplest silhouette can be the most stunning. Formfitting sheath dresses follow your body’s natural line from head to toe. An excellent option for petite brides, this shape helps elongate the body’s frame. For a timeless sheath look, the allover lace and crystal-beaded shoulders of Mona make it an instant classic. Or embrace a truly modern and elegant aesthetic with our Duchess Satin Milena gown.
Fit & Flare and Mermaid
Got an hourglass figure that you’re just dying to show off on your big day? Slip into a curve-hugging fit & flare or mermaid dress that is slim along hips and thighs and flared below the knees. Mermaid styles like Mirjana are typically a bolder look, especially with this gorgeous flounced organza skirt. Fit and flare Madora exudes a more subtle beauty with embroidered lace appliqués and a scalloped hemline.
The most popular silhouette for a very good reason, A-line designs are fitted at the top and gradually widen along the body’s natural shape. These styles are famously easy to wear and flattering on all body types. What’s not to love?
