Dress Shape Diary

Dress Shape Diary

Finding the perfect wedding dress can seem like an overwhelming task with so many gorgeous options to choose from. The best way to simplify your search is to select your favorite dress shape and start narrowing down your options. The dress shape, or silhouette, determines your gown's entire look and feel, and each one has something different to offer. Here’s a breakdown of the dress shapes we carry at Bridal Atelier Montclair:




Blaine by Sareh Nouri


Characterized by its full, fluttering skirt, the ball gown silhouette creates regal, dramatic bridal looks fit for a princess and everyday women alike.



Full Aline & Aline

Luca by Anne Barge & Iris by Savin London


Featuring a fitted bodice that gently flares out in a soft A-shape, the A-line silhouette offers a slimming effect around the waist, resulting in a gown that flatters any body type!




Betty by Flora


The sheath dress shape is fitted around your waist, with a flowing skirt that drops directly to the floor from your hips. This silhouette creates the perfect relaxed look, featuring very minimal flare and draping fabric.



Fit to Flare

Thelma by Kelly Faetanini


Fitted from the bust through the hips, the fit to flare silhouette subtly flares out just past the knees. This shape is perfect for brides wanting a curve-hugging, waist-accentuating look without sacrificing comfort or mobility.




Cosette by Sareh Nouri


The trumpet silhouette is similar to the fit to flare. Featuring a figure-flattering upper body design, the trumpet’s skirt flares out just above the knees in a more dramatic, voluminous shape than in the fit to flare.
