Mine was lace and organza, Casablanca 1865. It’s drop waist with rouching across the bodice and it really sucked me in at the belly are and gave me a great hourglass.

I can’t think of too many empire waisted ballgowns, I think empire waists tend to be more on a-line or sheath dresses, but I’ve looked for a lace ballgown myself for several months so below are some ideas. These are from Maggie Sottero, Casablanca, Alfred Angelo and MonCheri. I finally bought an a-line with a natural waist and turned it into somewhat of a ballgown with a crinoline. I’m a very small girl but I think that silhouette is flattering on all body types.

Ballgown and Empire are two different sillouettes.

The owner at the shop where I bought my gown said something that really stuck with me. She said a lot of brides make the mistake of trying to hide their flaws rather than trying to accentuate the things about them that make them sensational.

So don’t try to hide anything. Try to accentuate you’re most beautiful features. You’ll be much happier, because no one will notice anything except how gorgeous you are.
