Greetings,

These terms were introduced by Christian Dior, but I am unable to find a precise definition of them.

Thank you,

"A-line", "H-line" and "Y-line"
Explanation:
You keep it as it is. This were cutour lines that Christian Dior came up with right after WWII. The H-line came out in 1954, the Y-line came out in 1954, and the A-line came out in 1955.

even more, they were actually called that because they were a variation of the same style. Dior was obsessed with narrow shoulders and tiny waists.
