Our love affair with fishtail wedding dresses

When it comes to saying YES to the dress, sometimes all that page flicking, trend research and mood board mayhem goes out of the window. With over 10 years of experience as a dedicated bridal couture studio, we know when you’ve found the one. Sexy, sculpting and effortlessly flattering, here at Shehzarin Batha, we believe that some silhouettes will never go out of style, with one in particular making its big comeback – the fitted fishtail wedding dress.

Loved for its kiss-me-quick alter appeal that blends a modest long fit with a daring sweetheart neckline, designer wedding dresses like the fishtail cut are having quite the moment on the international bridal circuit, and we’re here to tell you why…

Intricate corsetry:


Ban the spanx and let an intricate shape-shifting silhouette do all the hard work. Beautifully crafted from the inside, our made to measure wedding dresses use time-old techniques that have been mastered by our in-house couturiers. Whether you need extra underwiring in the bust or want to highlight a wasp waist, heritage-inspired internal corsetry helps to add structure and support to any body shape. Using traditional boning craftsmanship, Shehzarin Batha Bridal couture gowns softly sculpt your curves with a structured internal shape that will have you feeling fabulous from the first quaff of champagne to the last slice of cake!

Hourglass profile:

Gently outlining a refined shape, the fishtail dress is the perfect design for accentuating a fuller bust and petite waist. Using your exact measurements, our couture wedding dresses are anything but average. Our dedicated team of seamstresses work side by side with a select range of fabric merchants and drapers to make sure we not only find the right fabric to suit your shape, but that it’s suited to the occasion, too. Whether you plan on owning the dance floor, kneeling at the alter or want some extra structure to shape your curves – Shehzarin Batha Couture is specialised in tailor-made designs that blend fashion and function together in perfect harmony.

Professional personalisation:

Renowned for its modest yet flawless shape, the fishtail wedding dress has become a timeless classic. Easily adapted to suit all styles, lace shoulder overlays, glittering crystals and daring bodice necklines make this simple silhouette an easily personalised design. Styled with fit n’ flare ruffling, shoreline layering or even just a touch of imported lace – Shehzarin Batha Couture has an intimate and personal relationship with all of their brides-to-be, making sure your design is truly one of a kind. Offering helpful styling tips and fresh new ideas, our stylists can help make this eternal bridal design a desirable heirloom piece to covet for a lifetime.
