The variety of silhouettes of wedding dresses will easily turn the any girl’s head. When the search for that special dress is just beginning, it’s not at all easy to understand the features of the existing styles. Therefore, we have created the most complete guide to the types of wedding dresses, which will help you understand the difference between similar silhouettes and determine your own preferences.
BALLGOWN WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTE
The contrasting combination of a tight corset and a voluminous skirt is the most traditional silhouette in the world of bridal fashion. Romantic, spectacular, luxurious, it evokes dreams of a fabulous wedding ceremony and the image of a princess. This is incredibly impressive. The ballgown wedding dress will beautify the bride with any type of figure. A form-fitting bodice accentuates the waist, while a fluffy skirt can hide the lower body. However, girls of very small or very tall stature should be careful when choosing this style due to irregularities in proportions.
A-LINE WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTE
It’s more light and delicate version of a wedding dress with an emphasis on the waist. As a rule, it has fewer layers of fabric; it may not have a rigid corset and crinoline. The skirt expands smoothly from the waist without a lot of gathers or without them at all. Like ballroom wedding dresses, the A-line also looks romantic and sophisticated, while being distinguished by great comfort and lightness. This is the most versatile cut, it suits all body types without exception and dominates the collections from Armonia.
STRAIGHT WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTE
The skirt flares slightly below the hips without extra volume and mass, or falls right down to the floor. This graceful cut, dominated by elongated lines, accentuates the beautiful natural curves of a slender figure. It is the epitome of simplicity and sophistication, because these dresses are elegant enough to match any theme and still look great.
MERMAID WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTE
It’s a very spectacular and sexy option for a wedding dress. The mermaid or fish tail silhouette contours the body to the knee or slightly higher, then flows smoothly to the large volume below. This cut looks especially beautiful and luxurious in combination with a train, acquiring notes of royal style.
FIT-AND-FLARE WEDDING DRESS STYLE
This intricate design is a real find for the most capricious and demanding brides who always want more. It is a hybrid of a solemn A-silhouette and a sensual mermaid style, combining their best features. Most often, a voluminous train can be removed, completely changing the wedding image.
SHORT WEDDING DRESS STYLE
Such an outfit will appeal to courageous girls who value emotions, drive, ease and convenience. The original format of the wedding ceremony will emphasize the successful choice of this image. A short wedding dress will suit you if you want to look elegant without feeling too formal at a beach ceremony or a light morning party with your family and friends. For the official part of the holiday, you can complement your look with a translucent cape dress or a satin jacket. The choice of footwear plays a special role in this case, because it involuntarily becomes an accent. Voluminous bows, shining stones and original shapes of heels – you can afford everything.
All brides want to delight with their look every moment of the wedding ceremony, and the easiest way to create a wow effect is by changing images throughout the party. Removable parts help you do this quickly and comfortably. For example, a fluffy dress with voluminous sleeves easily turns into an elegant fish or a short dress with a bustier corset for fiery dancing. All the necessary fasteners are skillfully hidden and invisible after the transformation of the outfit. Each collection from the ARMONIA brand has dresses with detachable details, as we value the individuality and imagination of every girl.
EMPIRE LINE WEDDING DRESS SILHOUETTE
A feature of this cut is the raised waistline which sits just below the bust from which the rest of the dress flows down. The changed proportions visually lengthen the height, legs and accentuate the chest. Traditionally, the silhouette of an Empire-style dress is well suited for pregnant brides, as well as for girls with a “pear” and “apple” body shape.
WEDDING DRESS WITH A SLIT
Most often, this is an A-line dress with a high slit on the skirt, which can be hidden in the folds or can show slender legs. This style allows you to create a luxurious look with a touch of sexuality and playfulness.
