Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

Your journey to the wedding dress of your dreams begins at the silhouette. Silhouettes, or dress shapes, refer to the different fit styles that gowns are tailored to follow, and each one offers its own unique look and feel. To help you along your search for the one, here is a simple guide to the most popular wedding dress silhouettes, all available at Lace Bridal Couture:



Style #C625 by Allure Couture


The A-line silhouette consists of a fitted bodice and a relaxed skirt that falls from the waist, creating a soft, A-shaped slant. This gives the shape its name and gives the bride a universally figure-flattering look.


Ball Gown

Style #C604 by Allure


The ball gown silhouette is characterized by its dramatically voluminous skirt, which puffs out at the bottom of a fitted bodice. This shape makes the ultimate statement, gives you a bold grand entrance, and is beloved by royalty and everyday brides alike.



Style #C652 by Allure Couture


The mermaid silhouette is fitted from the bust through the legs, then flares out into a skirt around the knees. This dress shape shows off each of your curves, creating romantic bridal looks perfect for celebrating your love story!


Fit and Flare

Style #9810 by Allure


Similar to the mermaid, the fit and flare silhouette closely hugs each of your curves, but differs in its slightly more relaxed skirt, which falls softly from the mid-thigh rather than the knees. This flirty dress shape celebrates the feminine figure, while allowing extra leg room for dancing mobility!
