Mermaid/Fishtail

The Fishtail silhouette, also known as the Mermaid silhouette, is defined by the style of skirt. It follows the shape of the hourglass body shape, fitting the body all the way down to the knee, where it flares out to the hem line, just like the tail of a mermaid or fish. It is fitted to the bust, waist, hips and thighs. Fishtail dresses can be worn with a special fishtail-style hoop, to help hold the shape of the dress and to keep the underskirt away from the bride’s legs.

  • 1. Hourglass body shape
  • 2. Fits all the way down to the knee
  • 3. Flares out to the hem line

Slim-A-Line

The Slim A-Line dress gets its name from the outline or silhouette of the dress, as it follows the shape of the letter ‘A’. It tends to be fitted around the bodice and flares out from the natural waist line to the hem, as the letter’s shape suggests. A Slim A-Line dress flatters the natural waist, as it pulls in on the waist line and then flares out. This skims over the hips and keeps the bust and hips in proportion, through the use of a structured bodice.

  • 1. Flattering silhouette
  • 2. Suits most figures
  • 3. Flares out from the natural waist
