Fit and flare wedding dresses – also known as trumpet dresses – are a gorgeous style that is fitted from the bodice down to mid-thigh, where it flares out to the floor.

Fit and flare dresses are ideal for hourglass and pear figures as they hug curves in all the right places before balancing out your shape with that kick out from the thigh. They create a sexy, beautiful silhouette, which will make you feel confident on your wedding day.

As you’ll see, you can find fit and flare styles to suit every kind of brides, from relaxed, boho looks to sequin showstoppers and modern, architectural designs.

For those after showstopping drama, the theatre of a fully embellished gown will achieve it instantly. The supportive structure of the Muse gown is perfect for brides: a corseted bodice nips in the waist, and then a trumpet skirt emphasises your curves. If you can’t wear a sequin-covered dress on your wedding day, when can you?
