The search for the perfect wedding dress usually entails checking off several boxes. Is it well-made? Does it fall within the budget? Is it consistent with my taste? Is it flattering? There are myriad essential qualities to consider but perhaps one of the more important qualifications to keep in mind is the latter. A flattering gown is first and foremost what you deserve on your big day. As such, it requires a bit of pre-meditation and patience.
There are certain design elements for wedding dresses that are consistently complimentary. Necklines, dress silhouettes, hemline details, and even fabrics all come into play when choosing a favorable gown. Ahead, discover nine of them from our current collections.
Your initial impulse may be to wear a sleeveless wedding dress but stay open to alternatives, including illusion sleeves. Especially when they’re crafted from delicate French lace, like our Estee, the end result feels romantic and refined.
Wedding gowns are more often than not floor-length, which means opportunities to show off your legs are limited—unless you go for a slit. Our silk satin Anna gown features a thigh-high slit that looks modern and flattering. Plus, it’ll be simpler to walk down the aisle and dance the night away with extra breathing room for your legs.
Wedding gowns that incorporate corsetry construction are a thoughtful way to accentuate your waistline. Our G-412 balances the structured top with a voluminous textured skirt for a dramatic, balanced finish.
Of all the bridal gown details, an off-the-shoulder silhouette is perhaps the most universally flattering. Our Maya features stunning 3D embroidered flowers over silk tulle that flow effortlessly into off-the-shoulder sleeves. If you’re hoping for a romantic dress, make it this one.
While a plunging neckline may feel innately risque, when translated to a bridal aesthetic it looks quite elegant. Our Priyanka balances the bold neckline with 3D organza and tulle petals and delicate tulle for a weightless finish.
A hint of volume can go a long way, especially if it’s by way of a puff sleeve. Our G-401 offers detachable tulle and embroidered sleeves that add old-world romance.
Accentuating your waistline is one of the most effortless ways to flatter your figure on your wedding day. Consider a belted gown, like our G-403. The thin crystal bow seamlessly blends in with the dress and creates an hourglass effect.
If a plunging neckline isn’t your cup of tea, a dramatic open-back is just as effective. Our Ella is crafted from French lace and placed on top of a silver netting that makes this back detail exquisitely flattering in photographs and in person.
