Silhouette Series: All About the A-Line

You have found the perfect mate, now for the next decision — finding the perfect wedding dress! Let’s face it; there are a lot of beautiful dresses out there to choose from. So many in fact that it can sometimes be difficult to narrow your choice to a single dress. That’s okay because at TK Bridal & Alterations, you never have to settle. If you don’t find the perfect ready-made dress in our stock, we will create a stunning one-of-a-kind dress just for you! To help you find the perfect dress, we’ll be discussing different silhouettes in our blog series. This week, we’ll cover the A-line.

Finding the Right Silhouette

When it comes to wedding dress shopping, there is only one thing to worry about: finding the right silhouette. You want to look your very best on this special day, and the only way to do that is to showcase your body’s best features. That is why style is so important.

When choosing the right silhouette, take an honest assessment of your body. Is it smaller on the top? Do your hips protrude a bit more than the rest of you? All of that is okay. It is these small differences that will make you the sexy bride your intended won’t be able to keep his eyes (or hands) off of – in the right dress of course!

While some dress styles look better on certain figures than others, the nice thing about the A-line gown is that it looks great on almost anyone! Shaped like an A, this style of dress tends to hug the waist (making it look smaller), while flaring out slightly in the lower half of the body, which can hide problem areas.

Shaped like an A, this style of dress tends to hug the waist (making it look smaller), while flaring out slightly in the lower half of the body, which can hide problem areas. Not flaring as much as a ball gown (which can engulf smaller brides), the A-line silhouette is classic and beautiful, working with the best features the bride has to offer.

The snugger waistband helps to elongate the torso, which gives more petite brides a larger presence while offering a bit of shapeliness to the slimmer, more athletic build. Profiling curves in just the right places, the A-line gown helps brides of all shapes and sizes look fantastic on their special day.

Accentuate the Positive

While many A-line gowns tend to showcase a simpler style, adding some lace and other embellishments to the top can provide the glitz and glam some brides are looking for. The alteration department at TK Bridal specializes in turning every gown into the kind of showstopper that grabs everyone’s attention.
