A-Line: Fitted bodice through the waist and flows out to the ground, resembling the outline of an uppercase "A." Ideal for all body types. This is extremely figure flattering on all brides.
Modified A-Line: Features fitted bodice and hips which gradually flares to the hem, forming an “A” shape. Due to the shape on the body the skirt of the modified A-Line dress fits closer to the body. Ideal for all body types.
Ballgown: The “fairy tale” dress, with a fitted bodice, which flairs at the waist with a full skirt. This shape is ideal for most body types but looks great on pears, since it hides the lower body. This shape of dress isn't good for petite brides as the skirt can be overwhelming on a small frame.
Mermaid: This shape of dress is fitted on the body from the chest to the knee, then flares out close to the knee. Ideal for slender frames and hourglass body types who are willing to show off their curves. It is not a good shape for apples and plus size body types.
Mini: This shape of dress the skirt falls above the knee. Ideal for bananas. This style isn't great for plus sizes.
