The ultimate guide to fitted wedding dresses!

Today we are talking about fitted wedding dresses; these include fit&flare/trumpet, mermaid, and sheath. Learn everything there is to know about this type of wedding dress and easily pick the one that will fit you best! 


This dress fits around the body like a dream and flares out mid-thigh to create a semi-full skirt. A mix between A-line gowns and mermaid dresses is ideal for curvaceous brides that want to accentuate their waist. 

The fit and flare/trumpet dress is less form-fitting than the mermaid and makes it a little easier to get around. 

Perfect for: hourglass figures and petite brides. 



The mermaid dress is very sleek and sexy. Fitted to the body until the knees where it dramatically flares out usually with a fantastic train. 

This ultra-feminine dress is ideal for showing off your curves as it hugs the body in all the right places. This design is ideal to accentuate curves. However, it can be a little difficult to move around. 

Perfect for: slim or voluptuous figures.



A sophisticated style perfect for a sleek and simple look. The silhouette elongates the body and legs and can hide your curves (if that is what you are looking for!). This narrow shape that goes straight down from the neckline to the hemline is just a classic look. 

Perfect for: lean frames and athletic bodies. 



Hopefully, this will give you an idea of the style of dress that will suit you best. Stay tuned as we will be talking about A-line, Princess, and Ballgown dresses on our next blog post!
