What is a sheath wedding dress?

The sheath wedding dress silhouette is also often called the column silhouette for its shape. Each sheath wedding dress is quite narrow in its shape, although it is not as narrow as a mermaid or trumpet wedding dress. If youre looking for a simple, yet chic wedding dress that subtly highlights your curves without giving too much away, this is the silhouette for you. A column wedding dress is not as grand as a ball gown wedding dress and not as blatantly sexy as a mermaid-style gown, but it combines the best of both styles to create an elegant choice for brides who want to show off their figure and their chic style.

Who should wear a sheath wedding gown?

A sheath bridal gown does a great job at adopting the brides curves once she puts the gown on. A column wedding dress shape is a great choice for slim and slender brides who want to accentuate their curves in a subtle manner. This dress style is also a good choice for brides who want to appear taller. On the other hand, if you have a pear-shaped figure, a sheath bridal gown may not be the best choice for you, as it will draw attention to the heavy-set bottom part of your figure.

Pros and cons of column wedding dresses

In addition to their moderate and traditional appearance, a big advantage of column wedding dresses is their price. Since these gowns are not as big as A-line or ball gown wedding dresses and they use less fabric, they tend to be on the lower end of the wedding dress price range. Plus, since sheath wedding dresses dont use a lot of fabric, they are lighter than their counterparts. This makes column bridal gowns the perfect choice for destination weddings since they can easily fit into a suitcase. Plus, if youre planning to get married in warm or hot weather, a sheath wedding dress will help you stay cool without restricting your movement too much.
