1/ Sheath 

Sheath silhouettes hug the figure to the hips and thighs before gently flaring out towards the lower legs in a continuous flow. Sheath silhouettes are sleek, chic and sexy for the contemporary bride looking to celebrate the shape of their body. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Olympia Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche BridalFallon Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche Bridal and Amelita Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

2/ Fit and Flare

The key difference between a sheath silhouette and a fit and flare lies in the way the shape is constructed. Where a sheath silhouette is continuous line, a fit & flare features a horizontal break after hugging the hips and thighs, from which the rest of the skirt falls freely in folds and gathers. This offers a heavier contrast between the top and bottom of the skirt, more volume towards the hem and more drama. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Dove Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche BridalAndrews Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Emma Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche. 

3/ Mermaid

A mermaid silhouette is similar to a fit and flare, but the horizontal break appears a lot lower, typically around the knees. This creates more even proportions which effortlessly flatter curvier figures. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Oberon Wedding Dress by PronoviasLilia Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal and Lansbury Wedding Dress by Pronovias

4/ A-line

The most classic dress silhouette, and it’s easy to see why! A-Line silhouettes are a versatile fit for any body type, fitting at the bodice and then flaring through the skirt for a light and flowy feeling, perfect for spring. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Dominique Wedding Dress by PronoviasMarwa Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche Bridal and Elara Wedding Dress by Pronovias. 

5/ Ballgown

Ball gown wedding dresses turn any bride in to royalty with the skirt dramatically filled out with layers of tulle petticoats. Location is everything with this silhouette, wear these dresses at an old church, a decorative hall or rent out a castle to Say I Do like a queen. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Geiranger Wedding Gown by Pronovias, Beatrice Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal and Manuela Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche Bridal. 

6/ Handkerchief 

The asymmetric cascading folds of a handkerchief skirt are formed from a square-shaped overlay. The points of the square drape elegantly to the hem, revealing the under layers between the corners. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Esmeralda Wedding Gown by Moonlight Bridal, Kaylee Wedding Gown by Moonlight Bridal and Lily Wedding Gown by Moonlight Bridal.
