Wedding Dress Silhouettes – Everything You Need to Know.

Shopping for the wedding dress can be an exciting, yet often an overwhelming experience. There are so many gowns to try, so many designs to compare and, as it always seems, so little time left.

Therefore, here at Blanche Bridal we have decided to help you with the very first decision you will have to make heading to the bridal store: “Which dress silhouette will suit me?”

Fit & Flare


Fit & Flare dresses fit tight through the bodice onto the hip before flaring out slightly. Because fitting of the dress is closer to the body, it creates very flattering and modern silhouette. Fit & Flare gowns are very popular amongst brides in Australia, as they are offering a very comfortable fitting. So first and foremost, Fit & Flare gowns are a convenient choice for so popular outdoor weddings.



Most of brides dreamt about their wedding day since they were little. If you do not wish to give up on that dream, then the ballgown silhouette is the right pick for you! With a full skirt and small waist, this silhouette is dramatic, romantic and timeless at the same time. It is a perfect pick for a fairy-tale wedding and the beginning of your happily ever after.



Similar to a ballgown, an A-line emphasises the smallest part of your waist and flares out from it so the skirt resembles the letter A. The silhouette features a flowing skirt, but without the puffiness and richness of a ballgown. Universally flattering, an A-line is always an elegant choice.



The sexy Mermaid gown hugs all your curves before flaring out dramatically at the knee. Even if you think you do not have curves for such dress, don’t you worry! This silhouette will create them for you by defining your waist and hips into a perfect hourglass shape.



A figure hugging straight dress that often tightens up at the waist, this dress tends to work best on slim and well-toned figures as it tends to cling to the body. 

Overwhelmed? Don’t worry. Our friendly team of consultants is always happy to help you pick the wedding dress silhouette that is just right for you. Head to Blanche Bridal to try our gorgeous wedding dresses and we will help you to find The One for you!
