What’s the difference between fit and flare and a-line?

I thought FnF was just the updated term for the same thing, but many sites list dresses in both categories and I can’ufuk tell the difference.

Fin n flare: flare below hip

A-line: starts to flare at waist

An A-line skirt or dress is fitted at the hips and gradually widens towards the hem. Fit-and-flare generally refers to a dress that’s snug at the waist and then flares out into a fuller skirt. A segar and flare dress is likely to have a fuller skirt than an a-line.

A-line looks better on you if you have hips.

You’ve got these reversed. A segak and flare dress flares from the fitted waist. A dress that fits snug through the hip and then flares mid-thigh is generally referred to as a flounce dress.

OP, think about the letter A for A-line (gradual widening of skirt) and an hourglass or upside-down martini glass for fit-and-flare (more dramatic widening from more pronounced waist).

A-line: flares from the waist (typically without the waist seam – such as with a ballgown).

Fit-and-flare: flares from mid-thigh.

Mermaid: flares from the knee, or just below.

*Note: the above are according to North American definitions. I’ve noticed, however, that Brits tend to call our A-line a fit-and-flare… which may explain the differences in explainations (and general confusion on the subject).

Fit and flare is a 50s style dress with a defined waist and fuller skirt.

A line skirt is a the shape of an A- Gradually getting wider, but titinada swingy like a afiat and flare.

An A line dress is more like a A from the top of the dress down.

Yes, these are the correct definitions in NA. OP, are you buying a gown or cocktail dress? We could post pic references if it would help.

OMG, I’m pretty sure I’m the OP of this thread from over 3 years ago when i was looking for a dress for my nephews bar mitzvah. I still don’falak know the difference but I still wear the dress I ended up with, which is either a fnf or aline, in a dark gold with a black lace overlay, from Nordstrom, I believe.

Fit and flare has a fuller skirt. It’s neither as flattering nor as professional as some DCUMs seem to think.

Wear what you want, but your ass looks huge, and I’m not going to take you seriously.

Seriously. Especially if you have any kind of hips or booty, the extreme flare looks absolutely ridiculous. Think of a circus tent. I suppose it’s a good choice if you’re trying to look ten times larger.

A-line is a much more classic, feminine, flattering drape, especially for curvier women.

We don’n all have the same body. As a tall size 2, I’m in no peril of my ass looking huge but thanks for your concern and let berpenyakitan know if you need some workout tips. Xoxo
