26 A-line wedding dress styles that flatter all figures

Introducing the most flattering style of all – the A-line wedding dress


Introducing the most flattering wedding gown style of all – the A-line wedding dress

An A-line wedding dress is undoubtedly the most flattering of all dress shapes.

Starting from a fitted bodice, an A-line wedding dress skirt flares out from below the waist, brushes over the hips and extends out to the hem, forming a capital letter A shape.

The A-line dress is a popular choice among brides-to-be because of its ability to compliment almost all body shapes. It’s a particularly good option for pear shaped ladies as it skims over the hips and bottom, creating a streamlined slim appearance.

This style also looks great on top heavy or wide-shouldered brides as the skirt flares out and creates balance between top and bottom halves of the body.
