5 Bridal Silhouettes...

So let's talk bridal silhouettes because let’s be honest they are quite different to our normal high-street go-tos. We are going to pick out the key shapes and give you a little insight in to what they can do for you.

The A-line

Starting with the classic, the A-line is one that most of us know, and the perfect silhouette for all body shapes. Nipping in at the waist and kicking out into an A shape bottom, creating a gorgeous hourglass shape. Here are a couple of our favourites in Vicki’s Bridal Boutique.

The Fishtail or Mermaid:

This is one of the most dramatic shapes with a figure hugging silhouette to normally the knee where it kicks out, traditionally with a tulle bottom. However, over the years there have been many variations, with designers using the same fabrics, giving a softer look to a more dramatic shape.


One of my personal favs, but also one that I know a lot a brides steer way from at first! This is a gorgeous-fitted silhouette with little flare at the bottom. This is the perfect shape to show off that gorgeous feminine shape. This is one of the more paired back bridal shapes but it certainly guaranteed to wow. Here are a couple of our favourites from our bridal collections here at Vicki’s;

Soft A-line:

The soft A-line is something that we see a lot of across our Kelsey Rose collection. This shape still does everything we want from a traditional A-line without the fullness, allowing for a more relaxed bridal look. It is a great alternative for a bride that doesn’t want to go down the fitted route, but a traditional A-line is too big.

The Ballgown:

This is for the true fairy tale bride and is exactly what it says on the tin. With a beautiful full skirt, often coming out from the waist or more volume in the base of the skirt created with tulle petticoats. You can't get much more fairytale ballgown than our Marie Skirt by Ellis Bridal teamed with Liza bodysuit.
