Fit-n-flare Wedding Dress

The glamorous fit-n-flare wedding dress is an extremely popular style, which closely hugs the body before flaring out gradually from just below the hip. This makes dancing and walking easier than in other fitted styles that flare out from lower down the body, such as trumpet and mermaid wedding dresses.

Fit-n-flare wedding gowns hug every curve, making them perfect for showing off hourglass figures. Brides wishing to create a more slimming effect could consider diagonal draping for a slimming angle - this asymmetrically draped Sophia Tolli shimmer satin fit-n-flare wedding dress flatters the torso and flows into the full skirt. Fit-n-flare wedding gowns can work for a pear shape, particularly if you choose a dress with straps to balance your proportions, but if you don’t want to emphasise your hips this may not be the style for you.

The fit-n-flare style isn’t off limits for petite brides but consider opting for a slim, more structured skirt - the alluring Angelina allover lace fit-n-flare gown by Martin Thornburg is a perfect example and its crystal encrusted and beaded boned bodice with sheer elements is bound to make your guests say ‘wow’!

Our top tip for fit-n-flare wedding dresses is to move around and try sitting down at your fitting to make sure you feel comfortable on your big day.
