    I have seen similar dresses shown as a drop waisted aline, and a drop waisted ballgown.  I think that it is really subjective.

    This is definitely drop-waist A-line.  My dress is the same silhouette…here it is before alterations.

    It is a ballgown and Yes it is subjective, sometimes.

    Definitely drop waist A-line!


    @MademoiselleL: Love your dres! I’ve been eyeing that one for my wedding too. I noticed you’re from Vancouver, where did you find your dress?

    @mrsbruff2b: I wasn’t exactly sure about everything regarding types of lace, shape, etc for my dress…I ended up going to the designers site and it told me all the details I wanted regarding it. I think yours looks sort of aline but I am sure if you just go to the site it will tell you.

    It’s called a full A-line. Very pretty!

    The Isadora from Maggie Sottero is similar and they call it a full A line.

    I’d say a drop-waist A-line that could become a drop-waist ballgown depending on what kind of slip you want.

    definitly a dropped waist full a line,,mine has also a full a-line,,but natural waist…the ball gown for what i understood starts puffier already right after the hips..any dress that flares out slowly at bottom are A-line,,so now some are wider at bottom,some less,thats why thye say full a line skirt,because it would resemnle a ball gown,,but much much less puffy!
