Collections Ball Gown
The Ball Gown silhouette is the most Romantic and celebrated shape in the 19th century for depicting a ‘Bride’. Generally having a fitted or corset like bodice, flaring out to the fullest width skirt and train.
The Ball gown is particularly flatterring to girls of all proportions, but mostly the pear shaped, wider hip, as it is hidden in all the volume of crinoline, satin, lace etc. The only caution would be for a very short bride as it does tend to make them look like a little girl playing dress up! That said, Alida always feel the bride should be true to her inner voice, if she has always envisioned a fairytale wedding, then Alida can find ways to make the Ball gown appropriate for her, make her feel womanly on this most important day.
