The Buzz Around Ball Gowns

December 16, 2021

For centuries, the ball gown has been a staple in bridal fashion. With its full skirt and iconic silhouette, the ball gown is popular among brides of all styles. But, what exactly makes it such a standout silhouette? 



The main, defining feature of the ball gown is its full skirt. Typically flaring from the natural waist, the skirt flows into a full, rounded bell shape, with the voluminous skirt contrasting with the fitted bodice. This naturally emphasizes your torso and makes you appear thinner! The thinning illusion of the ball gown makes it universally flattering, contributing to the silhouette’s enduring popularity. 



Aside from the flattering details of the silhouette, the ball gown instantly gives you a regal air—the shape is associated with royalty, as many princesses have opted for ball gowns on their wedding day (who could forget Princess Diana’s iconic ball gown?). Feminine and bold, the shape ensures drama and elegance simultaneously.
