A cut that dates back to the Roman Empire, the empire silhouette has a subtle way of channeling a regal look. The empire cut--which features a higher waistline--was made even more popular by the French in the 18th century, and in its rich history, it has been a well-loved classic among women.

Empire-cut gowns have seams that fall just right below the bust, making it ideal for small-busted women. Skirts below the waistline can range from fitted to flowing, with the latter being a favorite among expecting brides as it falls gracefully on any body type.
