In a general trapezium, the non-parallel sides are not congruent. However, in an isosceles trapezium, the non-parallel sides are congruent. So the shape is like an isosceles triangle with its apex chopped off by a straight line parallel to its base.

Difference with trapezoid and isosceles trapezoid?

If the two sides which are not parallel have equal lengths, then the trapezoid is called an isosceles trapezoid (standard trapezoid has unequal sides). The base angles in an isosceles trapezoid are equal in measurement, also I know that a trapezoid with two nonparallel sides the same length is called an isosceles trapezoid.
