Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

When on the search for your perfect bridal gown, you’ll find that there are many dress shapes to choose from. Dress shapes, also known as silhouettes, refer to the way the garment is tailored to fit against your body, and each one gives you a unique overall look and feel. Here are the different dress shapes you can fall in love with at Ellen’s Bridal:


 Ball Gown

Style #Iona by Rebecca Ingram

The ball gown silhouette pairs a fitted bodice with a full, voluminous skirt. This dramatic, statement-making shape offers a princess-like presence that’s perfect for both royalty and everyday brides alike!



Style #Jennings by Rebecca Ingram

 The A-line silhouette features a fitted bodice and a relaxed skirt that gently cascades to the floor from the waist, forming a soft A-shaped slant that gives this style its universally figure-flattering superpowers, as well as its name!



Style #Aretha by Rebecca Ingram

The mermaid silhouette is fitted from the bust through the thighs, closely hugging each of your curves before flaring out dramatically into a skirt around the knees. This sultry shape shows off your figure, giving you a jaw-dropping, swoon-worthy bridal look!


Fit and Flare

Style #Larkin by Rebecca Ingram

Similar to the mermaid, the fit and flare silhouette is a primarily fitted design. This shape clings onto your curves from the bust through the hips, then gently flares into a skirt starting at the mid-thigh, offering the perfect blend of effortless romance and dancing mobility!
