Find your perfect wedding dress silhouette in our "and something blue" bridal store in San Francisco

In the heart of San Francisco, a bridal haven awaits at "And Something Blue." Here, every bride-to-be embarks on an enchanting journey to find the gown that not only embodies her style but also complements her unique body shape. The process of selecting your wedding dress is a pivotal moment, one that overshadows even the most romantic of proposals. With an array of choices at your fingertips, it's essential to understand the silhouettes that will highlight your individuality and flatter your figure.

As you eagerly anticipate your bridal appointment, here are some key considerations to guide your decision-making process:

Fitted Styles: Explore the allure of fitted gowns. Whether it's the sleek sheath, the dramatic mermaid, or the bold trumpet, these styles are designed to celebrate your figure.
Waist Details: Pay attention to waist embellishments. Gathers and pleats may emphasize the waist, while a strategically fitted high waist coupled with a flowing skirt can offer a flattering contrast.
Versatile Choice: When in doubt, the A-line gown remains a timeless and versatile option.

In-Depth Silhouette Guide:



A harmonious blend of grace and versatility, the A-line gown effortlessly flows from the waist into a delicate A-shape. This style is a universal favorite, transcending body type with its flattering form.



The mermaid silhouette, fitting snugly from chest to knee before flaring dramatically, is a stunning choice for those with an apple-shaped figure. It masterfully highlights the waist and hips, creating an alluring contour.


Ball Gown

Imagine stepping into a storybook with a majestic ball gown. Best suited for figures with a defined waist and fuller bust, this silhouette combines a form-fitting bodice with an expansive, voluminous skirt. It's a design that accentuates the waist and camouflages the lower body. However, it's worth noting that the skirt's volume may emphasize the hips.



A sheath gown offers a sleek, form-hugging silhouette that flatters from head to toe. It's particularly beneficial for petite brides, creating an elongated appearance, while taller brides will appreciate the defined structure it provides. For those with a straighter figure, adding an embellished belt or sash can create the illusion of a cinched waist.



Simplicity and sophistication are the hallmarks of the slip dress. This minimalist yet chic style stands out with its figure-hugging elegance. Customizable features like a cowl neck, bias cut, and unique back details add character and individuality to this silhouette.
