Empire Wedding Dress Silhouette
Empire wedding dresses are having a moment - blame Bridgerton but designers are starting to show empire wedding dress silhouettes in their collections and brides are taking notice. The empire silhouette is characterized by a higher waist seam.
This vintage style features a fitted bodice that stops right below the bust and a loose-fitting skirt. Learn more about the history of this style by reading this Wikipedia article.
This style has been gaining popularity due to the show and book series Bridgerton which takes place during the late 1700s and was a favorite for many ladies of the era.
This style is often used in Maternity gowns or for a bride who wants to hide her tummy or hips. I suggest wearing this kind of gown if you are in love with vintage fashion, not because you want to hide your figure. On your wedding day, wear what makes you feel beautiful, not help you hide.
