Ball gowns, sometimes referred to as princess gowns, are your classic fairy-tale dresses. A slim corset top meets a wide, billowy skirt usually made of layers of tulle, crinoline, or other sheer fabrics. A smart choice for pear-shaped gals (or anyone with a Cinderella fantasy), ball gowns can help give the illusion of a smaller waist and allow brides show off sleek arms, shoulders, and -- depending on the bodice -- their back.
Make the most of this waist-hugging style with these exercises, designed to strengthen your core muscles (your body's internal corset) and give you that Disney princess midsection.
We know what you're thinking: Does choosing a poofy-skirted gown mean you can skip the leg, hip, and thigh workouts? Well, you can't honeymoon in that dress, chica.
