Brides

Find your perfect fit.

 

Consider the basic styles below—all available in our boutique—to see which one might work for you. 

 

EMPIRE

This gown has a high waist, which sits directly underneath the bust, and a skirt that flows down to the hem. An empire gown suits brides who are lacking in height – the high waist will elongate your body and give you a taller appearance.

BallGown

If you want the fairy tale princess look – the ballgown is for you. The ballgown has a fitted bodice with a very full skirt. If you are tall and thin, a ball gown will add shape to your slight figure. This style also flatters figures that are pear shaped and voluptuous.

Mermaid | Fit & Flare

The mermaid silhouette is for the bride who doesn’t mind showing off her curves, regardless of her body type. This style is extremely fitted to the knees, flaring out at the bottom of the skirt.  

Similarly, the fit & flare silhouette flatters all body types. This style offers the best of both worlds. The gown is not as fitted as the Mermaid style and stops between the hip and the knee with a skirt that flares out.

A-Line

An A-line gown has a fitted bodice, and the skirt flares out towards the bottom, creating an “A” shape. The skirt can have a full or slim design (modified A-line). An A-line gown flatters all body shapes. If you are petite, try a modified A-line. With a small frame, a fuller, more elaborate gown can overwhelm you. If you have an hourglass (figure 8) or curvy figure, an A-line gown with a dropped waist can be very flattering.

Sheath Silhouettes

This form fitting silhouette hugs the body in a straight line also known as a column dress. This type of a dress is best for brides with a sleek figure.

I visited one other Bridal Store twice and was unable to find a dress that I knew was THE ONE. However, every dress I tried on at Distinct Elegance was beautiful. It wasn’t hard to find the dress that was right for me! I am very excited and I know everyone will love it! I can’t wait to walk down the aisle in that gorgeous dress!
