Choose The Best Wedding Dresses Ever-Wedding Dresses Silhouette

by Kitty thomas

When choosing the wedding dresses, which feature of the wedding dresses is the most important aspect for you to think about? May be the answer is the wedding dresses silhouettes. Wedding dresses are made in several different silhouettes. Before considering which silhouettes is better, you should know which type of gown will be the best for your body type and flatter your figure the best. Even though there are several variations on gown silhouettes, there are only five basic ones.


This is the most popular and common silhouette for all the wedding dresses. Just as the name refers, the A-line dresses always have a fitted bodice and the skirt form an “A” shape from the waist. This style can perfectly matched for everyone well, and it is also a better choice for someone who would like to hide lower body flaws and show the slim figures. It can be designed to be worn at a backyard pot-luck celebration or at the most formal ballroom reception.

Ball Gown

The ball gown silhouette is similar to the A-Line and the difference is that the ball gowns have very full skirts and generally will look beautiful. And the ball gowns have the round skirt which will make the skirts much heavy at the bottom. By the way, they are not the best choice for the bride who is very short and small, they are good for tall brides with narrow hips.


Sheaths flatter women with slim, balanced figures. They shouldn’t be worn by brides who dislike their figures. This gown will not hide any flaws. If you think your thighs or butt are too big, you’ll be miserable in this type of dress. Don’t try to pull it off because you found a gown you love in this style.

Trumpet or mermaid

These are form-fitting silhouettes that flare to the floor usually from the knee (mermaid silhouette) or mid-thigh (trumpet silhouette). They are perfect for brides who have hour-glass body type and tall brides. Not recommended for petite brides, those with pear-shaped body or plus-sized


The Empire silhouette has a high waist look, often with a seam under the bust line and typically a slimmer skirt. This style is good for petite brides because the gentle blending of the waist into a flared skirt often provides a long and lean silhouette.
