A-Line, Ballgown & Drop Waist
The classic A-line style takes its name from the 'A' shape it creates as the bodice, fitted to the natural waist, flows into a full skirt.
The toe-skimming skirt of a drop waist gown, however, falls slightly lower, at the hip.
The ballgown style silhouette pairs a bodice fitted to the waist with a dramatic floor-length skirt.
All three outlines are versatile, suiting a variety of body shapes.
