1. Ball Gown Wedding Dress Style

The Ball Gown is an everlasting wedding dress style and is perfect for the brides that love to have a princess style wedding theme. Almost every little girl has a princess style dress when she was a child.

This silhouette pairs a fitted bodice with a full skirt that can either be one piece or separates. The ball gown is most appropriate for large, traditional weddings where the dress will be consistent with the formality of the event.

The Ball Gown wedding dress is great for us who like to disguise our thighs :) This kind of style has many wonderful upsides, and it squishing you into the shape you desire, giving you fabulous cleavage.

This Ball Gown will be able to support many kind of necklines and sleeve lengths. The combinations of different kinds elements create many various looks for many kind occasions.

If you are having a very formal or traditional wedding where you are expected to be covered, choosing a ball gown with a portrait neck and long sleeves will keep you covered but also show your femininity. You can achieve a dramatic effect by choosing a strapless ball gown and pairing it with opera length gloves. If you want a simple yet elegant look, you can go with a sleeveless, scooped neck bodice that flows all the way to the ground.

The Ball gown can showcase a number of different fabric choices that highlight different aspects of the dress. The use of satin or a chiffon overlay creates a very elegant and traditional silhouette. Intricate beading or lace work on the bodice, paired with a simple satin skirt will draw attention to the upper body. Light and fluffy layers on the skirt will help to create a floating effect. The volume of the ball gown can be achieved in a number of ways.; The skirt may require a petticoat or crinoline to support its structure. Layering fabric, such as organza, taffeta, or tulle, can also create this same effect.

This wedding dress actually may support most body types, but it most ideal for slender or pear-shaped body shaped as the full skirt helps to accentuate the waist and hide the lower body. If you have a large breast :), this style will help to create the hourglass look because it emphasizes the waistline due to the fitted bodice and natural or dropped waist. The volume of this style can create false and unwanted illusions. Be careful if you are on the shorter side since you may not have the height to balance the size of the skirt.

This kind of wedding dress is fabulous and gorgeous. This style will give you a fantastic look for your figure and if you've been hitting the gym and want to show off your shape, this style is great. This shape accentuates a sexy figure, showing off curves through the body.

3. Mermaid Wedding Dress Style

This is the style that give a very sexy look that highlights the curves of a woman's body. You must be really confident and comfortable to wear this dramatic style.

The mermaid style can support just about all necklines and sleeve lengths to reveal or cover as much skin as you desire. Since this dress is captivating by design, a high neck and long sleeves will still create an alluring look without being too sexy. If you want to show off your skin, you can opt for a strapless neckline, or a halter with a plunging v-neck to accentuate your seductive side :)

The mermaid style is influenced by various skirt styles. It may flare out above the knee, at the knee, or below the knee for slightly different silhouettes. The shape of the skirt and the hem can also affect how the dress looks. A round skirt provides volume all the way around the lower part of the bride, whereas a trumpet flare creates volume that flows out behind the bride. There is also a flamenco flare that gathers the lower part of the dress in the front for a Spanish feel.

Unfortunately this style is not for everyone. This design is best worn by slender figures, both short and tall.

Since the mermaid dress is made to hug the body and show every curve, it is not well suited for those brides with full figures. However, if you are on the voluptuous side and want to accentuate your curves, this is the perfect dress for you. The most important thing to keep in mind when considering a Mermaid style dress is whether or not you will feel comfortable wearing it on your big day. You may have a flawless figure perfect for this type of dress, but if you do not feel confident in it, it is not worth choosing.

4. Empire or Goddess Wedding Dress

Goddess or Empire style wedding dresses are hot at the moment – high-waisted with floaty materials, they would make you look like a mountain, but if you’re slim and smaller breasted, it’s a style that could look stunning.

This dress is defined by the raised waistline that sits just below the bust, from which the rest of the dress flows down to the hem. This style is usually paired with a square neckline and wide set straps or sleeves. Like the A-line, the empire style is very versatile and can accommodate a wide range of formality.

You may choose the lighter fabric if you decide to wear this style. Because they allow for the most movement and flow from the waistline.

Layering silk chiffon over a base fabric will create a romantic effect, especially if the layers are tiered or arranged in a petal style that gently overlaps in the front. Lace is another great choice for this style that can add texture and detail to an otherwise simple design. The empire dress is also perfect for contrasting two fabrics, such as pairing a detailed brocade bodice with a simple satin skirt.

This style fits well on most body types. But it is especially suited for those brides with a smaller bust since it draws attention to the neckline and creates definition.

5. Fifties Style Wedding Dress

I personally love this style. This style although it called fifties, I think it won't run out of time. I love the elegance look of this style. I love and probably always will love the 50's style glamor.

The 50's wedding dress always look simple, elegance, glamor, and chiq. I just love it.

How to measure the dress

Measuring for the right fit is a critical step when choosing your gown size, regardless of whether you are buying a wedding gown or an evening gown. Below is a diagram that will show you just where to take these measurements. Be sure to wear undergarments when you take your measurements.

It is best to have a seamstress check your measurements for you to be sure you have them correct.

Once you have written your measurements down look up our online size charts to choose the perfect size for your wedding gown or dress or special occasion gown.

When choosing a size, be sure that all of your measurements are the same or higher than those of the size you are selecting. It is easier for a tailor to take a dress in than to let it out.

The first dress is very elegant! It is so beautiful...there was a time, where this would be unheard of, to have black on a wedding dress. We know times have sure changed. Nice Hub-Page, for wedding gown tips:)
