A-Line Wedding Dress - universally flattering and comes in many shapes. A-Line dresses are typically narrow and fitted at the bust and waist, skimming the hips and widening towards the bottom... similar to the letter A.



 


 




 


Ball Gown Wedding Dress - a traditional silhouette featuring a fitted bodice and a full skirt, accentuating the hourglass shape of the feminine figure. It can be either ballerina (to the ankle) or full-length (to the floor)



 


 




 


Trumpet / Mermaid Wedding Dress - a slim fitting silhouette that "trumpets" at the hemline



 


 




 


Princess -   an A-line variation.  It is characterized by the use of vertical seams that extend from the top of the gown to the hemline.  Vertical panels of fabric elongate and slim the body, flattering a range of body types.



Dress by Watters




Sheath - A modern shape that tightly fits the body from the the neckline to the hemline. It is often made of very light and thin material like silk, and contains few or no flourishes.
