There are so many wedding dress silhouettes to choose from but one of our favourites - and a flattering style that never goes out of fashion - is the thigh-skimming fit to flare wedding dress.
Fit and flare wedding dresses are a popular style of dress that falls between the classic A-line and mesmerising fishtail. Similar to the knee-flaring fishtail, its fitted body hugs the figure before gradually flaring out from the thigh, creating a fabulous figure-framing silhouette for hourglass and pear body shapes with smaller waists and fuller hips. Thanks to its ability to accentuate curves, it’s becoming increasingly popular among brides who are seeking a flattering silhouette that draws attention to their best features.
With so many styles to choose from, we decided to share some of our favourite fit and flare wedding dresses with you in this blog.
If you’re looking for a classic dress with straps and no fuss, style 18610 from our Victoria Jane collection offers a sophisticated plain crepe silhouette with a striking plunge v-neckline and lace-up back. A chiffon overskirt also offers an alternative silhouette - perfect for effortlessly taking your dress from day to evening.
Bold brides dreaming of a show-stopping fit and flare can seek assurance in style 18620, a striking lace and tulle dress with a sweetheart neckline complete with intricate illusion plunging neckline and delicate straps. A beautiful buttoned illusion back and matching tulle and lace applique coat with statement shoulders add distinctive detailing that’ll no doubt create a gasp as you walk down the aisle.
Strapless sweetheart wedding dress fans are spoilt for choice with styles 18604, 18613, 18615 and 18616.
Style 18604 is our elegant fit and flare with a beaded sweetheart bodice and contrasting plain skirt complete with bridal button detailing. A matching overskirt creates an alternative A-line silhouette that effortlessly creates two looks - perfect for taking your dress from day to night.
Similar in style but with a lace illusion bodice, detachable flared illusion sleeves and a striking cathedral-length train is style 18615, a stunning fit and flare wedding dress suited to the body confident bride. A structured tulle skirt and illusion open back profile complete with bridal buttons create a picture-perfect silhouette.
