Wedding Dress Skirt Silhouettes

Ready or Knot is here to help you pick the dress of your dreams, to give you a fabulous wedding dress shopping experience, and to help you look amazing on your wedding day. Every bride has their own body type and every dress silhouette fits differently, but here are the basics on skirt shapes (bodices to follow in a separate post!).

A-Line // Also known as the “Princess,” the A-Line silhouette is fitted at the top and flares out through the skirt (it makes an “A” shape). This is one of the more popular shapes since it’s flattering to most body types. It is recommended for petite figures because it can help add height, and for full figured brides because it hides the hips. This is also a great silhouette for pear-shaped figures.  It is the perfect “in-between” skirt silhouette (not too full, not too fitted!).

Mermaid // This silhouette hugs the body down to the knee before flaring out at the bottom. This silhouette is the most difficult to wear since the cut is so fitted, and is recommended for taller women. It is not recommended for shorter, bottom-heavy figures.

Ballgown // This classic and elegant silhouette consists of a form fitting bodice, leading down to a full, floor length skirt. Like the A-line silhouette, it flatters most figures. This dress is a great choice for medium to taller brides and for those that wish to hide large hips. It is also flattering to brides with narrow hips, as it can give the illusion of a curvy look. However, this shape is not recommended for petite brides as the full skirt can be overwhelming.

Fit to Flare // This shape features a high waist that starts just beneath the bust {the fit}and falls with a slight flare {the flare}. This style is flattering to those with thicker waists since if falls straight down, concealing this area. While the empire style fits well on most body types, it’s especially flattering for those brides with a smaller bust since it draws attention to the neckline. It is not recommended for curvy, hourglass figures.

Trumpet// Trumpet silhouette wedding dresses are very similar to that of the Mermaid silhouette, flares out earlier at the thighs. A very slimming silhouette that adds feminine curves to a straight figure and will really lengthen the body. It is a great option for full-figured brides who like the look of the Mermaid silhouette, as it offers the perfect balance of curve accentuation and minimization.

Sheath // Or “Column,”  this style wedding gown can fall nearly straight down from the neckline to the hem, or it can hug your curves, accentuating your torso, waist and hips. Although flattering for several body types, depending on the fabric chosen, the Sheath silhouette may not allow much room for hiding problem areas, like a larger lower body. A thinner material may be clingy and more form-fitting in a sheath/column dress. It is most recommended for those brides with a tall, thin figure.
