Fit-and-Flare Wedding Dresses
Fit-and-flare wedding dresses hug the body in all the right places! The top of the gown is fitted until the skirt flares just below the hips, which helps accentuate a brides’ waist. Fit-and-flare gowns are a hybrid of the A-Line and Mermaid silhouettes; this style accentuates the waist and still allows for dramatic flair.

Fit and flare wedding gowns are often selected by brides with pear and hourglass builds, as the shape highlights your curves. The shape also adds length in the torso, which can help petite brides look taller.
What style of wedding:
Choose a fit-and-flare wedding dress silhouette if you’re planning an ultra-romantic wedding. Fit-and-flare gowns will float down the aisle of a rustic vineyard or an elegant art museum! The modern shape pairs well with any season and multiple accessories, so you can be sure that your fit-and-flare gown will complement any wedding day vision. A lace jacket or fur shawl will glam up your fit-and-flare gown but a flower crown can make it the perfect beach option. Read more at Essense Designs…
