A classic fluffy wedding dress in princess style is an incredible combination of a fabulous flair, harmonious body proportions and charming tenderness. This traditional silhouette has been popular for more than one century, since it does not lose its relevance even in comparison with the most modern and original trends of wedding fashion. Why is this style so popular among brides and what is the secret of its attractiveness? Pollardi invites you to plunge into the history of a fluffy wedding dress and discover every detail of this romantic silhouette.
Since childhood every girl imagines how she will walk in the most beautiful charming dress to the altar, where a handsome prince is waiting for her. In fact a white fluffy wedding dress became a popular church wedding attribute back in the 19th century. This fashion was introduced by the English queen Victoria, who was getting married in a snow-white dress, unusual for those times.
In the 20th century, the legendary couturier Christian Dior returned the fashion for fluffy dresses, popularizing the A-line, which is the base of the princess style. This rather simple silhouette stands out with one distinctive feature - a skirt smoothly expands from the waistline to the hem. The bodice of such a dress can be with or without a corset. Straps, sleeves, interesting cutouts are allowed. The length of the hem and the voluminosity of the skirt can also be different. This is one of the most varied and creative styles that give designers the opportunity to show their imagination.
For many generations in a row, the princess wedding dress remains one of the symbols of the wedding ceremony, and some models even made history of wedding fashion. We can’t but mention the incredible wedding dress of Princess Diana with a train of unimaginable length crafted by designer David Emanuel. This wedding dress with layered lantern sleeves and a voluminous skirt became famous all over the world.
In the 21st century, another royal dress attracted the attention of fashionistas from all over the world - the wedding dress of the bride of Princess Diana's son Kate Middleton. Luxurious, but at the same time royally restrained, fluffy lace sleeved wedding dress still remains the standard of impeccable style and inspires girls to choose similar models.
Despite the fact that puffy ballgown wedding dresses have long won the love of girls, it is necessary to choose the fitting model that will perfectly highlight all the bride’s charms and turn her into a real princess from a fairy tale.
Fluffy wedding dresses can be considered versatile as they fit almost everyone. Depending on the individual characteristics of the models, you can both hide small imperfections and emphasize beautiful female forms. It is impossible not to shine in such a dress. The silhouette gives a stately and noble posture, the bodice favorably emphasizes the waist and neckline, and the fluffy skirt covers the hips making the figure look like an hourglass.
Due to its peculiarities, the style of a fluffy wedding dress in princess style beautifully presents the charms of a female figure, to be more precise:
It is worth noting that the fitted bodice focuses on the bust, making it a real attraction of the look. You can choose any fluffy wedding dress with a neckline (V-shaped, square, deep, boat). The main thing is that the neckline should match the bust shape and present it beautifully. A princess style wedding dress can accentuate all that charm and delicacy that a girl possesses and enhance it a hundred times.
Designers use a variety of materials to sew such wedding dresses. They are selected depending on what kind of look you would like to create. Silk flowing in smooth waves can favorably outline a slender figure and sophistication of the bride. The most delicate airy organza creates the effect of lightness to make the skirt as lush and flying as possible. As a basis for a rich decor, a noble satin with embroidery is often used:
The masterful use of such a beautiful decor creates an incredibly sophisticated classic wedding look.
The fabric for the bride's dress is chosen based on which look she would like to create. The best choice for sensitive delicate lady is a princess wedding dress made of silk. This fabric falls in smooth natural waves. It looks very elegant and favorably outlines smooth lines.
When you want to focus on the style itself, the best materials for sewing will be brocade, satin, satin atlas and other fabrics that keep the shape well. Chiffon, tulle and organza are perfect for highlighting additional layers. It is also difficult to imagine a traditional wedding dress without lace on the skirt or bodice which makes the image incredibly delicate and charming.
Popular styles of wedding dresses, such as, for example, a fish dress or a pencil dress, have many nuances of choice that depend on body shape. And we can safely say that only a princess-silhouette wedding dress will perfectly fit any bride:
Ladies with curvaceous shapes can visually beautify the figure by making the waist slimmer, highlighting the waist and hiding the hips, giving the silhouette of an hourglass, while seductive breast shapes become the main attraction;
A princess style wedding dress can make any waist slim and trim. If you wish, you can choose a high-waisted silhouette that hides minor body imperfections and creates a more graceful and smooth transition to the hips and hem.
The classic wedding princess silhouette assumes that the girl should have a lush bust, since it is the support for the dress itself. However, do not be upset if you do not have shapely forms. This is absolutely no reason to refuse the desired style. Designer fluffy wedding dresses despite the peculiarities of any body shape look great and can show beauty that every woman is proud of in a good way.

A wedding look is incomplete without accessories. You should approach their choice with moderation, if you want them to complement the princess silhouette dress beautifully. When buying accessories, you should take into account the entire style and conception of the outfit. For example, a classic wedding dress in princess style of snow-white color will be successfully complemented by graceful sandals or boats of light shades.
There should not be many bright accents in the bride’s look, preferably no more than two. Only then they will become complementary details and won’t attract much attention. Let’s have a look at the basic bride accessories:
Even though this attribute of a wedding look is far from being required now, most brides do not want to give it up. In addition, Pollardi offers a large choice of the most interesting and original types of veils that perfectly match the dresses from collections.
There is no need to experiment with colors, the veil and the dress should be in the same shade palette. You also should not be zealous with the decor: lace, ribbons and beads on the edge of the veil look great. In case when the dress itself is richly decorated with decor, you should choose a simple, elegant veil. If you decide not to add a veil to your look, you can decorate your hairstyle with a beautiful comb, a flower wreath, and a small diadem.
To wear gloves to the dress or not is the personal choice of each bride. If you do decide to choose such an accessory, do not forget that gloves should be traditional. Fingerless gloves should be forgotten once and for all.
Fluffy sleeveless wedding dresses are perfectly complemented by long gloves above the elbow. This look will look even more fabulous and charming, because remember that almost all Disney princesses had long gloves. Gloves can be short. Nowadays, models made of translucent fabrics are very popular, which make the bride even more delicate and sophisticated.
Even if a wedding dress with a fluffy skirt was originally created without a decorative belt, this little finishing touch can be chosen separately. Even the simplest ribbon can put a spectacular finishing point in the look. You can also choose a beautiful belt, embroidered with beads, crystals and appliques, which additionally accentuates the waist and makes the dress fantastic.
