A ball gown wedding dress is all about volume and is often seen in fairy tales. It is similar in shape to the A-line wedding dress where it has a fitted bodice through the bust and waist and then flares out from the waist. The waist can be a natural waist, empire (which sits just under the bust) or a dropped waist (which sits under the natural waist just above the hip). A ballgown dress has a full skirt with multiple layers that give it that voluminous look. Don’t be fooled that the ball gown is just for a princess bride, it is a flattering and classic shape that always brings the Wow factor.
