    Yup! A-line is a very classic and flattering silhouette. The others are trendier, but A-line was definitely the right choice for me.

    I love A-lines and ballgowns and always thought I’d end up in one.  But I’ve also always loved mermaid dresses and thought they were so gorgeous and bridal.  I never thought I had the body to pull of a mermaid silhouette.  Then I lost 40 lbs, tried on a mermaid, and fell in love with it!  A-lines are classic and will be around forever though.

    I think they look great! … on anyone other than me. For some reason they just make my body look weird. They look fantastic on a lot of other people, though.

    @smallstuff:  I actually much, much, MUCH prefer a-line to any other silhouette, especially compared to mermaid or fit and flare (no offense to those who do like these!). I’m having an a-line/princess hybrid kinda dress.

    I would if it were a fabulously detailed gown, it had a unique style, or it was a full A-line (so it’s more like a ball gown).


    I generally think A-line is the most boring of the silhouettes (mostly because it’s the standard “bridal” silhouette). BUT I’ve seen a ton of absolutely gorgeous A-lines here on the Bee. Besides, if I was given the opportunity to wear an A-line Vera, I’d be dumb to pass that up!

    @smallstuff: I fell in love with my fit n flare dress as soon as I saw it online. I did though love the A-line I tried on first and it felt lovely it just wasn’t wow enough

    Before I really started looking, I said I did NOT want an A-line b/c I didn’t want to look like a triangle…until I realized that a lot of A-lines have more flowy skirts that don’t literally look like an A. Haha. Now, I’m thinking it’s going to be my best bet!

    One of my top contenders was an A-Line! I ended up with a mermaid, because it was the right dress for me, but A-Lines are beautiful, and are the perfect choice for other brides.

    A-line was what I thought I wanted all along!  But then, A-line looks like a ballgown on me, because I’m a tad short.  I ended up with a modified a-line/fit and flare.  Actually, the dress is the sample and it’s about 4 sizes too big, so the skirt will probably just look on me what A-line looks like on most people.  I opted out of the fuller skirt because I wanted to look a little more 1930s and grown up.  🙂

    A-line dresses don’t look good on my figure. The best silhouettes on me are dropped-waist or sheath, basically something fitted from bust to thigh. I have broad shoulders, a short torso, and narrow hips and a-line dresses or anything with a natural waist make me look dumpy. 

    Plus I’ve got a tush that demands attention.

    I wore an A-line that was all lace.  I did not want anything too form fitting, so no sheath, mermaid, etc.  This is actually buslted here.



    I totally wanted a ballgown, in fact I had two ballgowns, but they made my arms look fat for some reason. The A-line was much more figure flattering for me.
