Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

At Renée Grace Bridal, our vast collection of bridal gowns offers a variety of different dress shapes, so that any style of bride can easily find the dress of her dreams! The shape, or silhouette, determines the entire overall look and feel of the gown, and each type has something special to offer its wearer. Learning the different options available will help speed up your journey to the perfect dress, so here’s a breakdown of the dress shapes available at Renée Grace:


Ball Gown


Regal and bold, the ball gown silhouette is characterized by its full, dramatic skirt and statement-making presence. A favorite in fairy tales and for everyday women alike, this dress shape is ideal for the bride who wants to feel like a princess at her wedding.





Timeless and relaxed, the A-line silhouette features a fitted bodice that flows into a gently flowing skirt, creating a soft A-shaped slant pointing inwards towards the waist. This slant provides a universally flattering appeal and gives this shape its name.





Sultry and chic, the mermaid silhouette is fitted from the bust through the hips, closely hugging each of your curves before flaring out dramatically at the knee. This dress shape highlights an hourglass figure and is the ideal option for the bride with glamorous, runway-inspired tastes.


Fit and Flare


Similar to the mermaid, the fit and flare silhouette stays snug from the bodice through the hips but extends into a skirt at the mid-thigh. This shape gives you all the figure-flattering allure of the mermaid silhouette, while adding an extra touch of mobility and comfort.
