Your Go-to Guide for Wedding Dresses - Skirt Shape

Every bride can find a style of wedding dress that gives her those all-important butterflies. For most women heading to a bridal shop, the skirt is normally the element they are thinking of the most. That being said, it's often only when you step into a style you thought you would like that you realise it doesn't feel like you. Our recommendation is for women to enter the shop with an open mind, ready to try on every style available, after all you really can't tell in advance which one is going to steal your heart. Are you unsure what options are available? Continue reading.

The Ball Gown Choice

This is the traditional, puffy skirt which is worn to the ground and often uses several layers of materials to give it the appropriate volume. For brides who are all about having a fairy tale wedding, this choice is very popular and can be created to be a puffy meringue style or a simple, wide base style. Since this skirt style is all about volume, the waist area appears smaller and the bodice which is very simple will give a chic and impressive appearance. This is the most versatile skirt shape design as it works well on all necklines and body shapes.

The A-Line Choice

After the ball gown, the A line dress is the next most popular choice, in particular for women who aren't keen on a massive amount of volume in the skirt. This style starts narrow at the top and becomes wider towards the bottom, hence creating that fluid A shape. Since this style is designed to skim over the hips, it makes the waist appear small and brings attention to the bust. If your dress has lots of detail on the bust, this skirt style works very well since attention is drawn upwards rather than downwards. It is for this reason that you will notice that many A line dresses have simple skirts accompanied by detailed and intricate bodices.

The Fishtail Choice

A mermaid skirt, or fishtail dress, is both unique and impressive. From the waist, the skirt will hug the body but once it reaches the knees the material flares out. This style has a red-carpet and glamorous feel to it. For the look to work the bride needs to have curves in the right places, particularly around the hips, as well as choosing a material which will give a smooth appearance. Taller brides may also favour this style as additional height adds to the elegance of the look.

The Empire Choice

The empire, is a high-waisted dress gathering just under the bust and flowing into a loose fitting, long skirt. Slim brides with a small bust which they want to accentuate may like this style, as well as small brides who wish to appear a little taller. This style bring attention upwards, hence a good choice for taking attention away from the waist and hips.

The Column Choice

Our final choice is a straight skirt, or a column dress. It is a completely straight and slim-fitting style from the neckline down to the hem. Materials used are often silk or light chiffon to give a natural flow rather than appearing stiff. Slim brides may favour this style as it will emphasise their figure. The negative side to this style is the necessity to purchase a good quality control bodice to perfect the sleek silhouette appearance, even very petite brides can otherwise appear a little lumpy.

It's easy to find the perfect wedding dress when you choose two great styles that suit you. Each of the skirt styles provides an abundance of unique combinations by matching with various necklines, materials and detailing.
