Although they exhibit totally different looks, the A-line dress and the mermaid gown are both fabulous for a formal event. The one that is most fabulous for you depends on your body shape and preference.

Silhouette. The A-line gown gracefully flares from your shoulders to the hem in the shape of the letter A. The mermaid gown features a body-hugging sheath that extends to the knees, where it blossoms into a fuller skirt.

Body types. Because A-lines have a looser, more forgiving fit, they work on just about any body type, the She Writes website notes. The only caveat is the tighter top, which may be uncomfortable for those with larger chest areas.

The mermaid gown is not forgiving, with the form-fitting sheath holding tight against your frame. Every bump, bulge or not-so-flat tummy will be evident. Mermaids work best for tall, stately figures, those blessed with the perfect hourglass shape, and petite frames that are also in great shape.

Style. Simple sophistication is the style exuded by the traditional A-line gown while the mermaid dress typically screams for attention. Screaming for attention is not a bad thing at all, as long as you let the dress take center stage by keeping your jewelry and accessories on the subtle side. A-lines can be gussied up with a statement-making set of earrings, clutch or shoes, but not all three at once, please!

Since confidence is the number one fashion rule, whichever gown makes you feel most comfortable and beautiful is the one for you.
