The ballgown is the fairy tale gown that comes with flairs at the waist along with a full skirt and a fitted bodice. This is perfect for those with pear body shape because it masks the lower body. It is not great for petites because the skirt is overwhelming on their small frame.
A-Line wedding gown is ideal for every body type. It comes with fitted bodies through the bride’s waist and then flows freely to the ground, taking the shape of an uppercase A.
The trumpet is fitted through a bride’s body and the fairs are mid-thigh. The style is between the mermaid and a modified a-line cut. It is ideal for people with small waists such as petites, banana and hourglass. It is also great for apples and pears as it accentuates the hip area and stomach.
The mermaid wedding gowns are fitted on the body beginning from the bride’s chest down to the knees. It flares out close to the wearer’s knee. The gown is perfect for those with hourglass and slender frames body types who are ready to show off the curves. However, it is not great for those with plus size body and apple shapes.

The skirts are seen falling between the bride’s ankle and knees, and perfect for everyone.
The Mini falls above the bride’s knees. It is not for those with plus size body shape but great for bananas.
