Dress Shape Diary

You might feel overwhelmed when you realize how many silhouettes there are when shopping for a wedding gown! A bride should understand the different silhouettes so their stylist can help her find the perfect dress at The Bridal Shoppe in Texas. In your search for the perfect wedding dress, keep these popular silhouettes in mind!

Fit and Flare


 The flare of a fit and flare wedding dress is much tamer than that of a mermaid or trumpet gown. The curves are more natural looking, creating a universally flattering shape! Elegant understatement defines this silhouette.




The A-line silhouette features a flared skirt and a fitted waist, making it an excellent choice for a wedding dress because it's universally flattering and comfortable! This dress flatters any body shape, whether you want to emphasize your waist or your upper body. Garden weddings are perfect for this silhouette!




You will be able to show off your curves in a mermaid wedding dress thanks to its dramatic shape. Because of the longer bodice, it also emphasizes your torso! In addition to lace and embroidered florals, this is another popular wedding style.


Ball Gown


Wedding dresses with ball gown silhouettes are definitely the most popular! Ball gowns typically feature a much larger skirt than other silhouettes and encapsulate what it feels like to be a princess for a day. On your wedding day, wearing a ball gown is a dream come true. There's no better dress for a church wedding than this one!




An exaggerated flare begins at the mid-thigh rather than the knee on the trumpet silhouette, a new take on the mermaid silhouette. Brides who want to elongate their legs and feel a little more comfortable than in mermaid dresses should consider this shape. You'll be able to show off your curves to the fullest!
