When shopping for a mother of the brides dress it’s a great idea to bring a photo of the bridal and bridesmaid dresses as a guide when you are shopping and deciding what to choose as a mother of the brides dress.
There are five main types of wedding gowns for you to choose from including; ballerina dress, A-line dress, mermaid dress, sheath dress, and empire waist dress.
Also known as a full skirt or ball bridal gown, the ballerina dress is a classic and elegant choice. It is fitted on the upper half of the body and contains a full skirt on the bottom portion of the formal dresses. The top is typically decorated with fancy beads, lace, and other embellishments. A special, airy fabric is usually used for the skirt portion to add layers and give more volume. Those with a pear-shaped, thin, petite, or hour glass body are more likely to stand out with a ballerina dress.
Like the ballerina gown, the A-line dress is also very elegant and classic. As its’ name hints, the A-line dress is designed in the form of the letter “A.” This dress is ideal for women with wider hips and waist because the gown has a slope waist that is followed by a skirt. The skirt flows away from the body, and therefore helps conceal any imperfections near the hip/waist area.
An A-line dress is perfect for just about anybody; it can make a person look slimmer, taller, and altogether more beautiful. Your natural glow on the day of the wedding is surely to be enhanced by the embroideries and delicate designs placed on the dress.
Mermaid dresses are named after the mermaid-like shape they form. The mermaid dress is tight-fitting throughout most of the body (especially the top portion) and becomes wide from the knees down. Mermaid dresses are often confused for fish tail gowns; one main difference is that fish tail dresses end with a train trail, whereas mermaid gowns do not. When paired with bell-type sleeves and a more conservative neckline, the dress becomes even more admirable.
