Column Silhouette

The column is a long, narrow, slim-fitting silhouette with straight, lines. (See also: Column)

A column dress is usually made from lighter fabrics, such as satin or chiffon, which is more suitable for the body-skimming shape of the column silhouette.
Mori Lee Bridal Gown 6503 is a great example of the straight, form-fitting lines of a classic column dress:

  • Sleek, sexy style
  • Great for petite brides, as the long, narrow lines elongate a small frame

Things to Consider:

  • The column silhouette is most flattering on slimmer figures
  • Not the most flattering choice for pear-shaped figures
  • May emphasize a short waist
  • Be mindful when choosing your undergarments, as the column silhouette may reveal all of your flaws, as well as any seams or gaps of undergarments that aren't properly fitted
    • Consider shapewear, to help slim and smooth your figure
    • A long, form-fitting slip will help prevent your column dress from catching between your legs, as you walk down the aisle

Column Wedding Dresses with Trains

A train instantly makes a wedding dress more formal (see Formal vs. Informal Wedding Dresses); so, if you'd like the style of column wedding dresses, but want a more formal look, just look for styles that feature a train, and voila, the column becomes a formal dress!
