Feature Friday: Dress Waistlines

Bridal season is still going here at the Studio and we've seen several different gown styles! I thought I'd continue talking about dresses in today's Feature Friday as well, focusing on waistlines.

Whether a bridal gown, or a special occasion dress, here are different waist styles to consider when shopping!

Basque Waist
This waistline features a "U" or "V" shape.
This particular dress is made for a Quinceanera.

Dropped Waist
This dress features a waist line below the natural waist at the mid hip.
This particular dress is a great everyday style.

Empire Waist
This style has a raised waistline that sits just below the bust, 
from which the rest of the dress flows down to the hem. 
The Empire Waistline is used in all types of dresses.

Natural Waist
This style waist line hits at the natural waist, 
the indentation between the hips and the rib-cage.

Princess Waist
Also known as the "no waist," it features an  A-line silhouette 
with vertical seams down the front.

Which waistline style do you prefer?
