An Aline dress silhouette is fitted through the bodice (the top of dress from the bust to waist) until it hits your waist or right below the waist then gradually widens towards the bottom hem of the dress, giving the impression of the shape of the capital letter A.
The aline wedding dress style is sometimes referred to as the “princess” style popularized by icon Grace Kelly of Monaco. A-line dresses are a flattering style for almost all body shapes, making them a popular choice among many different brides. The A-Line Silhouette boasts many figure-flattering attributes such as adding curves to a straight figure, giving a taller appearance to petite brides, minimizing waistlines and heavier bottom halves, and balancing out proportions for brides with a bigger bust. The Aline leaves plenty of room to be comfortable while moving through your day.
Since this silhouette flares from the waist, these dresses are perfect for walking and dancing because there is no restriction through the hips. Due to its classic and simple style, the A-line dress is appropriate for any occasion, from a quiet backyard gathering, to a traditional church ceremony.An Aline dress can also be altered to fit the way YOU want. They can be altered to fit closer to the hips if you want to show off your figure without committing to a fully fitted dress. Alines are a great choice for beach weddings also, as they are more mobile in situations where you are walking on uneven surfaces and sand. You really cannot go wrong with an Aline dress, as it flatters all body types!
