Trying to find a wedding dress to accentuate your most beautiful features and complement your natural figure can be rather a daunting task and you may be wondering where to start. Let us help you. Start with the most universally flattering shape – the A-line silhouette!
Closely following diamonds and fluffy dogs, an A-line silhouette is a woman’s best friend. No matter your age, height, shape or size, an A-line wedding gown can help to create a gorgeous hour-glass figure for you. This lovely cut cinches at the waist (typically the most narrow part of your body) and gracefully falls to the ground, disguising the hip and thigh area.
If you have a petite figure you might be worrying that an A-line skirt may shorten your legs, or if you’re curvaceous you may think that an A-line skirt will make you look wider, but these kinds of issues can easily be solved by the waist line you choose. Petite brides will benefit most from an empire waistline, which sits high (just under the bust), elongating your legs. Plus size figures will be flattered by a natural or low waistline which creates smooth lines in the transition from the bodice to the skirt.
A-line skirts are classic and elegant, but can also be rather fun and flirty. They’re super versatile and we know you’re going to love them!
