Fit and Flare

The term “fit-and-flare” encompasses a wide variety of gowns with a fitted bodice and flared skirt. Fit-and-flare wedding gowns have the least dramatic flare of any flared dress style. Following your natural curves, the flare begins just below the hip and gradually widens into a full, flowy skirt.
Brides who want to show off their figure without committing to the dramatic mermaid or trumpet silhouettes should consider a fit-and-flare wedding dress instead. This toned-down version still hugs your body through the bust and waist, while being a little more forgiving through the hips, bottom, and thighs. The skirt flares out mid-thigh, giving you plenty of freedom to walk, sit, and dance as you please. Fit-and-flare gowns are flattering on many different body types, which is why they're among the most popular wedding dress shapes. This silhouette looks incredible when paired with a sweetheart or deep V-neckline.
