Tips & Guidance | By:cocomelody

Shopping for your wedding dress is an exciting experience. But choosing the right fit can be overwhelming. As experts in the wedding dress industry, we put forward our expertise and help you make the right decision. Here’s a quick overview of some of the typical dress silhouettes out of the many options available to brides. So, let’s get started.


The definition of this wedding dress silhouette is self-explanatory. It forms the shape of the alphabet “A.” Such wedding gowns feature a fitted bodice and waist with a full flared skirt that looks both elegant and classic. The style is a universal choice, i.e., it suits most body types and goes well with just any neckline. Today, you can also choose modified A-Lines that define your natural curves and feature a balance between A-Line and Trumpet styles.

  • Fitted bodice
  • Flared from waist
  • Flatters all body types
  • Mimics the shape of the letter A

This one’s a classic favorite of many modern brides. Sheath/column dresses look classy and elegant, defining your natural body shape from top to toe. The style has a linear form with no layers but a simplicity that captures all eyes. Such types look great on straight figures to create an illusion of curves and for brides with defined waistlines. Sheaths draw more attention to your lower body playing up with your natural features. The style is also great for brides with an hourglass figure. It requires less fabric, is suitable for effortless brides, and offers easy movements.

  • Streamlined silhouette
  • Minimalistic look
  • Falls straight to the ground from below the hips

Mermaid/ trumpet wedding dresses have a fitted bodice extending till the hips, falling out into a dramatic flared skirt starting from mid-thigh or below the knees. The style is also called fit-and-flare. It draws more attention to your waist and hips, so it’s more suitable for petite or curvy women. But some brides feel the shape draws unnecessary attention to even the less desirable body parts. So not all women are too excited about a mermaid wedding dress. But that doesn’t mean you just can’t flaunt one. Talk to a stylist, and they may be able to help you modify the style and add features that enhance your look.

  • An elongating style
  • Body-hugging shape
  • Has a dramatic poof at the bottom
  • Fit-and-flare, best of both worlds
