A-line wedding dresses are the epitome of easy elegance. A-line wedding dresses are one of the more traditional silhouettes. This romantic, womanly cut fits close at the bodice and then begins to flare at the waist, providing plenty of ease through the hips. Women with an athletic figure, curvy and hourglass figures, pear-shaped women, petite women, and women with a shorter torso, without fail, look great in an a-line wedding gown. Its universally flattering qualities are what make the A-line wedding dress quite timeless, and always a good choice for formal occasions.
