The Sheath or Column Wedding Dress
Select the best one for your body shape!
The Sheath, which is also known as the Column wedding dress runs pretty much vertically from the shoulders down to the floor and the hem does not flair out, like it does in the A-Line, Empire or Ball Gown. These dresses are usually body-hugging wedding gowns and work best for slim brides with balanced figures. It is also suitable for petite brides on the slim side since it tends to elongate their shape. If you are not super confident in your shape, you might want to mark this one off your list, as you want to be happy and confident on your wedding day. A slim Hour Glass may like the body hugging features of this dress style, but the BEST suited shape seems to be the Rectangle for this Column wedding gown.
This shape is more typically known as the boyish, athletic body type. The bust and hips are roughly the same size and the waist is undefined. This type usually has a small to medium bust and slim legs and arms. Styles that flatter this shape are the Sheath, Empire, A-line, Ball Gown and Mermaid with a portrait or strapless neckline
