A Guide to Osh Gosh Gowns’ Stunning Wedding Dress Styles

When it comes to choosing the perfect wedding dress, there are so many styles to consider. Each style offers a unique silhouette that can flatter different body types and highlight your best features. But which one will be perfect for you? Let's take a look.

Ball Gown Wedding Dress

The ball gown is the epitome of elegance and grandeur. With a fitted bodice and a full, voluminous skirt, this style creates a fairy-tale look. It’s perfect for brides who want to feel like a princess on their special day. Ball Gown wedding dresses look stunning on most body types, particularly those with a defined waistline. However, petite brides should be mindful of the voluminous skirt overpowering their frame.

Mermaid/Fishtail Wedding Dresses

If you want to flaunt your curves, the mermaid or fishtail wedding dress is an excellent choice. This style hugs the body from the chest down to the knees and then flares out dramatically at the bottom, resembling the shape of a mermaid’s tail. It accentuates the natural curves and creates a glamorous and sophisticated look. This style is best suited for hourglass figures or those who want to create the illusion of curves. However, keep in mind that the fitted silhouette may restrict movement, so consider your comfort level before choosing this style.

Sheath/Column Wedding Dress

The sheath or column wedding dress is perfect for a sleek and minimalist look. This style skims the body from the neckline to the hem, creating a clean and elongated silhouette. It’s an excellent choice for beach weddings or those who prefer a more relaxed and understated vibe. The sheath style is versatile and can flatter various body types, particularly those with a slim or athletic build. However, there may be better options than this style if you’re looking to hide certain areas or create curves.

A-line Wedding Dress

A-line wedding dresses are a classic and universally flattering choice. With a fitted bodice that gradually flares out from the waist, this style resembles the shape of the letter “A.” It offers a balanced and timeless look that suits most body types. The A-line style is particularly flattering for pear-shaped figures, as it skims over the hips and emphasises the waistline. Whether petite or curvy, an A-line wedding dress is a safe bet to make you feel beautiful and confident.

Fit and Flare Wedding Dress

The fit and flare style combines the best of both worlds – the fitted bodice of a mermaid dress and the flared skirt of an A-line gown (albeit the flare is usually less full and from the thigh or knee). This style emphasises the waist and hips while allowing for freedom of movement. It’s a versatile option that can create a stunning hourglass silhouette for brides with curves. However, choosing the right fit and flare dress for your body type is essential. Petite brides may want to opt for a softer flare, while apple-shaped figures should consider a looser fit around the midsection.

When choosing a wedding dress, it’s essential to keep in mind your body type, personal style, and the overall theme of your wedding. But the best way to find out if a dress will flatter your figure and make you feel incredible is to try it on. And that’s where we come in; you can book your bridal appointment at Osh Gosh Gowns and let us help you find your dream wedding dress.

Remember, the perfect dress is the one that makes you glow with confidence on your special day.
