Ball Gown/Full Skirt

The most regal silhouette which is timeless and worthy of a fairytale.

The ball gown is by far the most traditional style of bridal gown that creates a classic, elegant look. They often have a corseted bodice which is great for all shapes and trims the waist. The bell-shaped skirt can vary dependant upon fabric and structure to give varying degrees of fullness from the heavy to the soft and light. The result is not only breathtaking but also forgiving!


The slim profile of this dress closely follows the body's curves. It embodies a very 'sex and the city' trend of modern femininity and will give you that catwalk look. This style flatters tall and willowy brides but the unbroken line will work well for those who are petite.

A-Line or Princess Line

The A shaped dress is a style that suits most figures. The fitted bodice highlights your narrowest point whilst making the most of the bust. The A line will cover wider hips effectively. The degree of flare in the skirt can vary but generally are easy to wear.


This glamorous fit & flare silhouette has a contoured cut that emphasizes an hourglass shape. The elongated bodice hugs your curves to below the hips. The signature skirt flares out mid-thigh or at the knees.

T Length

A 1950's and 60's inspired gown style that is easy to wear and stylish, whilst retaining a certain vintage charm. The length can be knee length, T length, calf length, ballerina or high-low. Skirt shapes and widths can vary from pencil body-con cuts through to flamboyant net petticoat tutu's. Suitable for all venues. Accessories can make the look.....think about the shoes!

What Our Customers Say
"Selecting a wedding dress is one of the most difficult and emotional experiences a bride has to go through. I am so happy that I was privileged enough to be able to shop at Poppy Bridal. Not only were they incredibly supportive and helpful but they absolutely went out of their way to help me organise both my Wedding dress and 4 bridesmaids dresses with alterations when none of us live in the north of England! Superb selection, superb staff, and above all flawless customer service. Hope they will be there long enough to bring my daughter in 30 years!"
