Strapless Gowns

Strapless gowns are a favorite between brides of past and of present. The perk of having a strapless gown is that there are various necklines that allow this wedding gown style to remain unique and stunning regardless of the designer, style, or bride!

One of the best parts of a strapless wedding gown is how it highlights the bride from the neck up. Body types that are fairly tall and proportionate are best suited for this type of wedding gown. This style can also fit brides who have more of a triangle or pear shaped body type. If you have a larger bust or broader shoulders, this body type may not be as conducive to that. On your wedding day you do want to look and feel your best, so it's important to find a gown that fits your body type just right.

One of the loveliest parts of a strapless gown have to do with the bodice. Brides may opt for a simpler bodice with ruched tulle or satin while others may look for intricate beading with mediums such as pearls, crystals, rhinestones, and lace. The body of the strapless wedding gown can remain elongated with the same fabric flowing down, while other gowns may have gathered fabric, layers, or beading and intricate patterns.

Some fantastic designers to look for that design some of the top strapless gowns include Maggie Sottero, Judd Wadell, Jim Healm, and Alfred Angelo.
