It gives an elegant figure and is suitable for both tall and slender brides and more curvy ones, since the important volume of the skirt hides the shapes.
The fitted bodice hugs the waist and is often embellished with beaded and sparkly appliqués rather than lace or embroidery inserts. The most used fabrics are organza, taffeta and gazar.
The wide skirt on the hips, whose shape resembles that of a balloon from which it takes its name, generally has two lengths: knee or ankle.
