From Pale Polished Frocks to Curvaceous Courtly Couture

These Cinderella ball gowns are worthy of the signature Disney princess herself. Made to be tight fitting around the bosom but dramatically flared out as you proceed down the length of the dress, this is what young girls everywhere are imagining themselves in on their wedding day.

The shapely structure of these voluptuous frocks are of a much older age than today. This particular style was popular in the Victorian and Renaissance era where swells of fabric were commonly seen hanging from a tight corset. However, this collection of bottom-heavy dresses does go to show that the market of the present is not totally dominated by sheer and skin-tight dresses that grace the red carpet all too often.
