Wedding Gown Silhouettes

Finding the perfect wedding dress begins with finding the right shape for your body. There are five basic gown shapes, including trumpet, mermaid, sheath, a-line, and ball gown. Once you've narrowed down to one silhouette, deciding on a combination of materials and details is easy! At The Bustle, our bridal stylists will help you find the right fit for your wedding day. Click here to make an appointment today!


Trumpet This is a fitted style that begins flaring out just below the hips. It shows off your curves enough while still giving you enough walking space to dance the night away!


Mermaid This style is great for brides who want something a little more dramatic to show off their curves! It's more fitted than a trumpet fit, and begins flaring out at the knee or lower.


Sheath This is slim fitting style perfect for brides who want a sleek and effortless look! It hugs your body head to toe, and is a great silhouette for wanting to elongate your figure.


A-line This is universally flattering on every figure! It's fitted at the bodice to show of the smallest part of your waist, and flares out from there. It looks especially great on brides who want to conceal their fuller hips, or for brides with a sporty figure who want to create the illusion of curves.


Ball Gown  This shape is fitted at the bodice, with a dramatic full skirt. If you love this look, go for it! Where else besides your wedding can you dress like a princess? :)

Quick Tip: Color Matching Bridesmaids Gowns

If you're a bride with a large bridal party whose friends are in different locations, deciding what style gown they should wear may be difficult when you can't shop together at the same time. So you've finally decided what style gown your bridesmaids should wear, or want them to choose whatever dress they like. How do you describe the color so they can match the rest of the bridal party?! There are many different variations of hues, so here's a quick tip from The Bustle to help your bridesmaids coordinate colors to get the perfect shade you want! (: Make a trip to Home Depot or a craft store. Pass through the paint, fabric, or ribbon aisle and find a swatch of color that you want your bridal party to wear. Take multiple color cards or cut up swatches, and send them out to your bridesmaids that are out of town. Color cards can easily be placed in a wallet or purse, and can be taken out when convenient when they're out and about. This way, when they go shopping for their bridesmaids dress, they can use that color swatch as a reference in choosing the right color for the gown. bridesmaids5
