Empire Waist Dresses and Empire Formal Gowns

Empire-waist dresses offer a classic look that is forever in style. Derived from Neoclassical fashions and inspired by Greco-Roman art, where women were pictured wearing loose fitting tunics belted under the bust, empire-waisted dresses are both supportive and comfortable. Channel the regal elegance of a Greek goddess at your next special occasion in a gorgeous empire-waist gown. Although empire-waist dresses can be form-fitting from neckline to hem, dresses with an empire waistlines are typically snug fitting through the bodice with the skirt falling loosely or straight to the hemline. This classic empire-waist design is still very popular and can be found on formal prom dresses, cocktail dresses, pageant gowns, as well as holiday party dresses. Empire-waist dresses often feature sweeping long skirts or layered tulle skirts and are accented with plenty of beautiful details like jewels or embroidery to portray an ultra-feminine vibe. Shop this assortment of empire-waist dresses at Simply Dresses for your next formal evening gown, party dress, or short cocktail dress with an empire waistline.
