Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

Choosing the right wedding dress can be a little overwhelming when you see all the different silhouettes available! In order for their stylist to help brides find the perfect gown, we at De La Rosa’s Bridal & Tuxedo in California believe it's essential that brides understand a few silhouettes and how to describe them. Here are a few of the most important wedding dress silhouettes you should keep in mind as you begin your search!


Ball Gown


Ball gowns, like this one from Morilee, are definitely among the most popular shapes for wedding dresses. Ball gowns have much larger skirts than any other shape and are perfect for capturing the feel of being a princess. One of these dresses can be the dream dress of any bride!




A-line silhouettes like this Morilee gown have a flared skirt with a fitted waist. Because it's universally flattering and comfortable, this is the most popular wedding dress silhouette! This type of dress is great for enhancing your waist or highlighting your upper body.




 Mermaid wedding dresses, like this one from Stella York, flare out at the knee and create a dramatic silhouette that hugs your curves. Due to the longer bodice, they also emphasize your torso. There are a variety of styles available that feature lace and embroidered florals.


Fit and Flare


We love fit and flare gowns like this one from Morilee because they’re romantic and pretty! Keep in mind that the main difference between this silhouette and others with flared skirts is that these are much more tame.
