If your idea of the perfect wedding dress is one that highlights your waist, skims over your hips, and flares out into a wider shape, then a fit-and-flare wedding dress is undoubtedly for you. This classic look is one that’s incredibly popular among brides and not just for those with a specific body type. A fit-and-flare wedding dress is stunning on anyone! The most significant deciding factor in choosing one is whether or not you want to accentuate your waist and then have more room on the bottom for movement in your skirt.
Whether you’re still figuring out your bridal aesthetic or have a clear idea, fit-and-flare wedding dresses come in just about every style and iteration you can imagine. With sleeves or without. Embellished or minimalist. With an exaggerated flare or a softer one. Traditional or modern. Budget-friendly or designer. See? Endless options!
So, without further ado, scroll below for gorgeous fit-and-flare wedding dresses we love.
Stella McCartney F18 Magnolia Halter Wedding Dress
If Meghan Markle’s second-look wedding dress is the gown you’re after, look no further than this near-replica of the Duchess’s Stella McCartney design. A blue tag on the inside completes this dress, featuring a personal message from the designer to serve as a 'something blue.'
Safiyaa Crepe Gown
If you need a more conservative wedding dress but don’t want to sacrifice on style, look no further than this fit-and-flare design. Short sleeves and a V-shaped neckline make up the sophisticated upper half while covered buttons and a not-too-slim body-skimming fit make up the lower portion.
