Shop A Line Wedding Dresses (Fit-&-Flare)
Consider A-line wedding dresses as something between a sheath (often referred to as column) and ball gown silhouette. That is, the skirt flares out from the waist more than a sheath gown but not as dramatically as ball gown designs.
The A-line wedding dress is designed to thin the appearance of the hips whilst still creating a feminine shape of slim waisted curves.
At Emerald Bridal, the a-line design style is our favourite. This is because it is so versatile – it can have a v-line back, be strapless, have long sleeves, have a sweetheart neckline and be made of various materials (satin, lace, tulle).
Our ready-to-wear bridal collection has a number of different a-line wedding gowns to choose from. Each has its own character and we would love for you to try them on in person.
PS – our gowns are available in size 4-20.

A Line Wedding Dresses FAQs (Answered)
What is an A-line wedding dress?
The A-line wedding dress is a classic silhouette that is characterised by a skirt fitted at the hips and gradually widens towards the hem.
Basically, the overall shape of the style is of a capital letter A (hence the name).
Championed by Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, the A-line saw a revival in the early 2000s and continues to be a popular silhouette for brides (because it is universally flattering for all body shapes).
In Australia (and for UK brides) bridal stores will also refer to a-line as fit-and-flare. This differs to North America where fit-and-flare wedding dresses flare from mid-waist and has a fuller skirt (aka, trumpet).
