You probably notice this when trying on gowns: fabrics make the biggest difference. We know that not everyone is familiar with all the different types of fabrics, so we’ll try to break down the most common ones.
Charmeuse: A lightweight soft fabric, very satin-like to the touch
Chiffon: Delicate, sheer, and transparent — made from silk or rayon, with a soft finish; often layered because of its transparency
Illusion: A fine, sheer net fabric which is generally used on sleeves or necklines
Jersey: A very elastic knit, similar to certain t-shirt materials
Organza: Crisp and sheer like chiffon, with a stiffer texture similar in effect to tulle
Satin: A heavy, smooth fabric with a high sheen on one side
Silk: The most sought-after, cherished fiber for wedding dresses (and also the most expensive); there are several types with different textures: raw silk and silk mikado are just two examples
Taffeta: Crisp and smooth, with a slight rib
Tulle: Netting made of silk, nylon, or rayon; used primarily for skirts and veils (think ballerina tutus)
