Dress Shape Diary

The first step to finding the bridal gown of your dreams is learning about the different dress shapes you get to choose from. The shape, also referred to as the silhouette, completely determines the overall look and feel of your dress, and each one has something special to offer. Here is a breakdown of the three most common dress shapes you’ll find at MK Bridal:

 

 

Ball Gown

Style #Odri by Ria Tener

 

 

The ball gown dress shape is characterized primarily by its bold, full skirt. A popular choice for royalty and everyday women alike, this silhouette creates dramatic, princess-like wedding day looks that the statement-making bride will love!

 

 

A-Line

Style #D3465 by Essense of Australia

 

 

 Similar to a ball gown, the A-line dress shape’s skirt starts at the waistline, but flows to the floor with much less volume. This creates a soft, A-shaped slant pointing inwards to your waist, giving this silhouette its name, and brides, a universally flattering gown!

  

 

Mermaid

Style #D3340 by Essense of Australia

 

 

The mermaid dress shape is fitted from your bust through your thighs, with its skirt flaring out dramatically around your knees. This silhouette embraces each of your curves and gorgeously highlights an hourglass figure.
