Traditional Bodices


For bridesmaids, the traditional bodice goes really well with an A-line skirt. Exceptionally fitted and often with boning (support which runs from the bottom of the bodice to the bust to create a near perfect body shape, hold you in all the right places and support even the most ample of bosoms). A traditional bodice sits on the hips just below the waist and then form a point approximately 4 inches below your navel. It is this waist line which makes it one of the most traditional looks for bridesmaid gowns.


Alternatively, the waist line can be rounded from hip to hip where all points of the line sit on your waist rather than protruding from it in a point.

A final option is that it can be drop-waited, where the bottom of the bodice sits 3 inches lower on the hips, again this can either meet in a point or be rounded.


Now that you know about bodices, if you haven’t already done so, now is the ideal time to have a read of the articles on ‘Skirts, Hemlines & Trains’, ‘Necklines’ and ‘Straps and Sleeves’.
