What it is
The number one distinguishing trait of a ball gown is its very full (aka huge) skirt. The silhouette also has a fitted bodice and is cinched at the natural waist.
Brides with boyish figures. The fullness of the dress will make you look curvier.
You’re a petite bride. You’ll get swallowed up by a dress this voluminous.
