Clíodhna, on December 3, 2019 at 11:05 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 2 161

A-line, ball gown, mermaid, sheath, fit-n-flare: which dress silhouette is more your style? Do you love figure hugging dresses or are you all about the ballgowns?

Which dress silhouette do you prefer? Full or fitted?

    Full. Fitted can work for some people, but I'm definitely not one of them.

    A-Line. Some fullness to it, but not a full on ball gown

    Full! I tried on a fitted and I looked pregnant. Didn't flatter by body shape at all.

    Full. I’m absolutely in love with my ball gown and was so uncomfortable in all the more fitted dresses I tried on haha.

    Definitely fitted for me... Full makes me look short, wide and fluffy.

    Full. I've always loved ballgowns anyway but fitted doesn't work for all body types.

    I think both styles can look great but DEFINITELY full gown. There are less than a handful of times if not only ONE time in life where you get the opportunity to wear a full regal gown. I say it's the only way to do it on the big day!

    I don’t like the balloons look, but at the same time I don’t like anything pressed against my body, just makes me way too uncomfortable. So, full is what I have to go woth!
