Wedding Dress Silhouettes Tuesday, June 4, 2013 ~ 10:25 a.m.

I don't think that I ever announced it here, but about two months ago, I was very happy to become the Weddings Expert for! This basically means that I write many (but not all) of the articles that you will find on the page. There's actually a button on my sidebar where you can be directed to all of the articles I've written for so far.

I recently wrote an article all about wedding dress silhouettes that I thought some of you APP readers might find helpful. Honestly, before doing the research for this article, I had no idea just how many different choices were available for shopping brides out there! I've included an excerpt of the article here, and you can read the piece in its entirety on

Wedding Dress Silhouettes by Body Type

...The silhouette of the wedding dress refers to the overall shape of the dress from top to bottom, and it's important to find the one best suited for your body type. Here's a guide to some of the most popular wedding dress silhouettes, in order of fullness.

The sheath wedding dress is a great option for the more casual bride on her wedding day. The sheath silhouette has a less forgiving, narrow shape, with a straight skirt that hugs the curves of the bride's body, so it's best saved for the thinner, well-toned bride.

The empire silhouette is most flattering to those more petite brides who have smaller busts. The waistline of the dress is typically higher than a woman's natural waist, and can be as high as right below the bust line. The empire silhouette also has a lengthening effect, and can be flattering to those who are pear shaped or who have thicker waists.

The mermaid wedding dress silhouette is a great choice for the sexy bride looking to make a grand entrance. Not to be confused with the trumpet style, the mermaid fits closely to the body, and flares dramatically right at the knee, rather than the hip. The mermaid style is best suited for the bride with an hourglass figure...

Believe it or not, but there are three more wedding dress silhouettes! Read more about them here.
