Your wedding gown is the most memorable fashion statement you will ever make. Before you make your first appointment, take time to consider which silhouettes and necklines will best convey your style and flatter your figure. Each gown different and unique to flatter every figure and bride.
Mermaid: If you have an hourglass figure, this is the style for you! The fit contours to the body from the chest to the knee area and dramatically flares out. However, it's a bit restrictive for dancing the night away.
Goddess: The updated version of empire styling is perfect for more casual affairs (a beach wedding, perhaps), as the preferred fabric - chiffon- flows from under the bustling to provide an ethereal look. This style is a good choice for tall, slender to petite brides.
Trumpet: You might call this style a marriage of mermaid and A-Line, as it hugs the torso and then flows outward at mid-thigh, (making it less restrictive than the Mermaid.) It's a perfect style for those with hourglass figures.
Ball Gown: Cinderella defines this fairy-tale look that begins with a fitted bodice/waistline and end with a full skirt. Crinolines provide the signature pouf. The style complements newly every shape; the only exception is the petite bride, whose stature may be overwhelmed by the full skirt.
Sheath: The clean lines of this classic shape lend themselves to weddings of every style. It's the finishing touches (lace, sling, rushing etc.) that makes it traditional, formal, retro or modern. It's a good choice for tall, slender or petite brides.
A-Line: The "A" says it all- the gown follows the shape of the torso and the gracefull angles out at the waist. While this shape is perceived to complement any figure, it's especially good for petite (the unbroken) lines can make a woman appear tall and full figured (hips become less noticeable) brides.
