Stunning plus size ivory or black wedding gown SC5257 by Syudney's Closet. Pleated bodice, off-the-shoudler straps, pockets and full A-line skirt with covered buttons down the back.

A-line or Princess

You can spot this silhouette because it basically has no waistline. This very popular dress features a fitted shape defined by vertical seams that flow naturally from bust line or shoulders to a flared skirt that creates one clean line. The skirt is typically an A-line, a design that flatters every figure.

Ball gown

Think Cinderella! This is the most traditional formal dress hallmarked by a fitted bodice and natural or dropped waistline that falls into a full or very full skirt, often worn with a bouffant slip. Ball gowns hide hips and tummy.  But think twice if you are short. This silhouette easily overwhelms a petite figure.
