The decision is all based on personal preference. While there are pros for ordering a brand new dress, there are also many perks for getting a sample. We've outlined a few advantages to consider when shopping and trying on gowns.

Pros for ordering a new dress

  • You aren't limited to styles when trying on gowns since there are new designs every season!
  • Since you're placing an order on a brand new dress, it will be in pristine condition.
  • Measurements are taken to order a gown closest to your size. There's no need to worry about altering a gown two sizes too big.
  • Some designers give options to customize parts of the dress when ordering. It'd be awesome to make the dress to match your personal style.

Pros for purchasing a sample gown

  • Getting a gown off-the-rack means massive savings! 
  • You have a gown to begin alterations right away. This is important if you have a short timeline with a wedding coming up within the next few months.
  • Aside from cleaning, alterations (hem and bustle) will be about the same as purchasing a new dress.
  • Nobody will know you didn't purchase a brand new dress unless you tell them (;

Wedding Gown Silhouettes

Finding the perfect wedding dress begins with finding the right shape for your body. There are five basic gown shapes, including trumpet, mermaid, sheath, a-line, and ball gown. Once you've narrowed down to one silhouette, deciding on a combination of materials and details is easy! At The Bustle, our bridal stylists will help you find the right fit for your wedding day.

Trumpet This is a fitted style that begins flaring out just below the hips. It shows off your curves enough while still giving you enough walking space to dance the night away! 

Mermaid This style is great for brides who want something a little more dramatic to show off their curves! It's more fitted than a trumpet fit, and begins flaring out at the knee or lower.

Sheath This is slim fitting style perfect for brides who want a sleek and effortless look! It hugs your body head to toe, and is a great silhouette for wanting to elongate your figure.

A-line This is universally flattering on every figure! It's fitted at the bodice to show of the smallest part of your waist, and flares out from there. It looks especially great on brides who want to conceal their fuller hips, or for brides with a sporty figure who want to create the illusion of curves.

Ball Gown  This shape is fitted at the bodice, with a dramatic full skirt. If you love this look, go for it! Where else besides your wedding can you dress like a princess? :)
