Hello, Gorgeous! A big event is lined up, but you are stuck in the outfit dilemma – what to dress or what style looks best on you. Gowns are a must haves in every woman’s wardrobe. There are various options – embellishments, colors, and fabrics available for gowns. They are the ideal choice to wear to various events, including weddings, parties, and black-tie affairs. There are numerous gown styles for various body types. This list of several gown types makes it easier to understand the ideal one that complements each body types!
Types of Gowns
There are seven different varieties of gowns. Though all these fall under the same family of gowns, they differ in their cut and style:
A-line: This gown is modest and classy and fits all body types. It has an A-line skirt that flares out from a fitted bodice that ends at the waist. This is an ideal choice for a simple silhouette, such as new year’s parties or bridesmaid dresses.
Modified A-line: A modified version of A-line. Fitted through the bodice and hips, it gradually widens out into an “A” shape at the hem. Compared to a regular A-line, this fits more closely to the body. The figure-hugging form is ideal for women with toned bellies and hourglass or pear-shaped structure with defined waists! Even strawberry and rectangular shapes can rock it with a belt!
Ball Gowns: This dress is unquestionably a classic favorite, loved by Cinderella and modern fashionistas alike. Ball gowns are dresses with a floor-length skirt and a fitted bodice that flares out at the waist. Perfect for most body types but especially attractive on pears because it conceals the lower torso.
Sheath Gowns: The silhouette of this type of dress is straight. There is minimal to no flare as it drops straight from the hip to the hem. Sometimes a small flare is added, tapering to a long trail at the heels. Excellent choice for hourglass and petite proportions. Even women with rectangular shapes can wear belted sheath gown styles.
Empire-waist: These are quite fashionable and give off a regal appearance. Empire-waist dresses have a prominent waist that sits just below the bust. They are perfect for women with pear and diamond shapes since they entirely conceal the stomach. Even expectant ladies favor this style.
Mermaid: Another classic look that is still popular is the mermaid look. Fitted up until the knee or calves, the mermaid gown for women tapers to a full skirt or trail. With a low cut back that highlights the form and the curve of the body, this style has a very attractive appearance. It’s ideal for hourglass-shaped women and even certain pear-shaped women.
Trumpet: This design has a slim fit through the body and flares out at the thighs. Excellent alternative for petite and hourglass-shaped women with small waists. Not recommended for people with pear-shaped bodies. As the flare will create a balanced impression, it’s fantastic for women with strawberry shapes as well.
Pure Silk Saree
Just touch the silk to get a real sense of how silky it is. Real silk has a silky, almost waxy feel and is perfectly smooth to the touch. Additionally, if it is crunched up a little in hand, there is a crunching sound, which should confirm purity.
Pure silk sarees range in price from INR 2,000 to 40,00,000 for the more opulent garments. Some pure silk saree variants, such as the Tussar silk, are reasonably priced and range in price from INR 2,000 to 4,000. The least expensive Kanjivaram pure silk saree, on the other hand, costs about INR 7,000. Some variantss of pure silk sarees include Banarasi silk, Tussar silk, art silk, Kanjeevaram or Kanchipuram silk, and Mysore silk. With the use of various methods and complex weaving patterns, pure silk sarees are hand-loomed from materials of the highest quality.
