An Empire silhouette is characterized by its waistline, which is directly beneath the bust, where it connects with the skirt. The skirt of Empire dresses may follow the lines of a sheath or column dress, falling softly to the ground; or it may be A-Line, gently flare away from the body. An Empire gown must also have a fitted bodice to be a true Empire style. The Empire silhouette is flattering for almost all figures.
Every effort has been made to assign the correct silhouette category to each dress. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee each dress has been categorized correctly.
