If you are confused by all of the lingo and terminology surrounding wedding dresses, you are definitely not alone. My girlfriend Martha got married a few years ago and I guarantee you she still can’t name the silhouette, fabric or neckline of her wedding dress. (She did, however, look amazing at her wedding and is is very happily married today).
So, while what matters most is how you feel in the dress, for the record, here are the different waistlines explained.
Basque Waist: waistline features a low U or V.
Dropped Waist: features a waist line below the natural waist near the mid hip.
Empire Waist: has a raised waistline that sits just below the bust, from which the rest of the dress flows down to the hem.
