Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

When you're shopping for a wedding gown, you might feel overwhelmed by all the silhouettes! Molle Bridals stylists can help brides find the perfect dress by understanding the different silhouettes. Keep these popular silhouettes in mind when searching for the perfect wedding dress!


Fit and Flare


Fit and flare wedding dresses have a much more subdued flare than mermaid or trumpet gowns. With more natural curves, this shape is universally flattering! This silhouette exemplifies elegant understatement.




 A-line wedding dresses feature a flared skirt and a fitted waist, making them universally flattering and comfortable! No matter what your body shape is, this dress flatters you. A garden wedding is the perfect setting for this silhouette!




 Because of its dramatic shape, mermaid wedding dresses are perfect for showing off your curves. Your torso is also highlighted by the longer bodice! This is another popular wedding style besides lace and embroidered florals.


Ball Gown


Ball gown silhouette wedding dresses are definitely the most popular! The skirt of a ball gown is usually much larger than that of other silhouettes, reflecting the feeling of being a princess for a day. Ball gowns are a dream come true for brides on their wedding days. This dress is perfect for a church wedding!




The trumpet silhouette, a new take on the mermaid silhouette, has an exaggerated flare that begins at the mid-thigh. Those interested in elongating their legs and feeling more comfortable than in mermaid dresses should consider this shape. Embrace your curves and show them off!
