If you’re not sure where to start with wedding dress styles, then universally flattering A line wedding dresses are the ones to try first. Fitted at the chest to highlight your narrowest point, this style flows out gradually into an ‘A’ shape. The balanced proportions work brilliantly to draw the eyes upwards and create a beautiful nipped in waist, so it’s a super flattering style for all body shapes. Look out for slim A line wedding dresses too, which fit a little closer to the body than a traditional A line and are popular for beach or destination weddings.
Below we’ve picked three of our favourite A line wedding dresses from the Anna Sorrano collection. Known for its elegant and timeless styles, these three stunning dresses fit the bill perfectly!
A fine silhouette
Camilla is a vintage-inspired dress with a flattering A line skirt and romantic full-length sleeves. We love the layers of luxurious lace, which conjure up the charm of a bygone era.
Be my sweetheart
The vintage feel is enhanced by the traditional sweetheart bodice combined with a high illusion neckline, which is ideal for brides who want plenty of coverage.
This design features layers of embroidered and Chantilly lace, which create a breathtaking three-dimensional look. There’s also a cobweb lace underlay to add depth and detail to the skirt.
Turn around and you’ll reveal the beautiful lace illusion back. It’s covered with more of those stunning lace appliqués, which run across the tops of the shoulders and give delicate coverage along the length of the arms.
Go with the flow
The flattering skirt looks amazing worn with one of our 163 underskirts for extra volume. A little extra lift will also draw attention that dramatic lace hem!
A touch of sparkle
Highlight your waist with our glittering Tiffany belt and then finish off your chic updo with our retro Deco comb.
Lastly, our sophisticated Maisie veil is the perfect finishing touch for a classic look that will never date. For a similar style, take a look at Pippa too. Alternatively, for a strapless version, try Leanne or Antonia.
Lace and tulle
We love the elegant A-line shape of our Cecily design. Fitted at the chest to highlight your narrowest point, this style flows out gradually in swathes of lace and tulle.
The classic sweetheart bodice is overlaid with a beautiful lace illusion neckline. The delightful cap sleeves also look super pretty while flattering the shoulders and giving plenty of coverage.
Drama and glitz
The simplicity of this design means it’s the perfect canvas for a few sparkling accessories. Here we’ve added a glitzy belt, to highlight the waist. You could also try it with our beautiful Royale tiara covered with sensational crystals. For the evening, why not turn up the glamour with a dramatic feather bolero too?
Take a bow
At the back there’s more beautiful illusion lace combined with an oh-so pretty bow.
This design is covered with exquisite lace from head to toe and the stunning train has all the wow-factor any bride could want. Plus, if you need any length alterations, the pretty lace hem can easily be removed and reapplied. Alternatively, for a similar lace A line dress, take a look at Caroline too.
And, finally, we have another of Anna Sorrano’s timeless A line wedding dresses. Tara combines an elegant ball gown skirt with a flattering pleated bodice that draws attention to the waist and highlights your natural curves.
The classic pleated bodice is great for all figures. The off-the-shoulder straps are also perfectly placed to flatter the upper arms and show off the décolletage.
A little shimmer
The super soft satin has a luxurious sheen, which is typical of the Anna Sorrano collection’s classically understated style.
The perfect fit
At the back there’s chic lacing to ensure the bodice fits like a glove and also hugs curves like a dream.
Style it up
Why not have some fun accessorising this pared-down design? Keep it simple or go to town, whatever you prefer! We think it looks amazing with our glittery Estella belt and a traditional Regency tiara. Our romantic Loulou veil, with its delicate satin edging, is also the perfect match to this understated look. Finally, if you like the flattering pleating here, make sure you check out Felicia too.
