We are here for you, always. Take away some tips before your search for the perfect dress begins.

Ball Gown

This dress shape has an elegant bell-shaped skirt that drops down from the tight waistline. Coupled with the slim-cut fitted bodice, a ball gown is perfect to complete your fairytale-themed wedding. It gives the illusion of a narrower waistline, so if have a bottom-heavy figure, go for the ball gown.

Overall, this dress can suit almost all shapes and sizes. Be the next Kim Kardashian who wore a frothy Ball Gown at her wedding ceremony in August 2011.


Slim and tapered on the top, fitted through the waist, and softly flaring away from the body, the A silhouette is a popular choice. From a fitted bodice to a flowy skirt, it gives off gentle and sophisticated vibes. Most brides go for the classic and traditional A-line as it is flattering for everyone, and embodies the perfect mix of modern elegance. A sweetheart neckline, a distinctive heart-shaped style, is also often chosen to accentuate décolletage, perfect for the bride who wants to create the illusion of curves.


To experience a red-carpet moment on your wedding day, let the mermaid silhouette be your choice for your wedding dress. Hugging the contours of the midsection and flaring at the skirt like a fish tail, it accentuates your curves perfectly. It is best suited for brides with an hourglass figure to impress! Go for this design if you want to add a little more oomph to your wedding! As worn by many reality stars, Khloe Kardashian was one of them who pulled off this mermaid gown with her signature curves during her wedding in September 2009.


A style that originates from the ancient French, the Empire line is defined by a raised waistline that starts just below the waist, allowing the rest of your gown to flow down to the hem. Flowing right over the hips, this silhouette draws attention to the bust and elongates the figure. Empire-waist wedding gowns are perfect for brides with a boyish waistline, or to hide pear-shaped figures. Its loose, flowy structure and a relaxed silhouette is also a plus point if you are steering away from tight gowns. An empire gown screams comfort for brides who will be walking around a lot on the big day.


If you prefer to keep things simple and go for the minimalist style, this is the dress for you! This slim silhouette takes the shape of your body. This lavish-looking dress has a lengthening effect on the long and straight lines down the skirt. To avoid stumbling over layers of fabrics on your big day, this is a good silhouette shape to go for.
