Wedding Dresses By Silhouette
A line wedding dresses are fitted to the waist and then gradually flares out from the natural waistline of the bodice towards the hem in the shape of the capital letter A.
A fit and flare dress is for all body types. This type of dress hugs the body and flares off just below the hips, accentuating the waist, or at the knees. Depending where the flare begins, will determine if it is a trumpet wedding dress or a mermaid gown.The mermaid flares at the knees and trumpet style has a mid-thigh flare.
The line of the strapless wedding gown can range from column, to floor length, empire to tea-length but the flattering, waist-defining, and slimming effects. It is supported by an internal corset and/or brassiere, with the tightness of the bodice preventing the dress from slipping out of position.
