Fill your bridal look with that Greco-Roman majesty and make your way down the aisle with the utmost elegance in a sheath wedding dress. This particular style has been brought to us by Greek statues and has been making history ever since, favored by both the Napoleon and the Jane Austen eras, this wedding gown has chic written all over it.
Also referred to as the “column” wedding dress, the cut runs straight down from the shoulders all the way to the floor, grazing over your feminine curves and drawing attention to all the right places. This is a fantastic choice for pear-shaped brides as the straight cut both equalizes the curves and draws attention to the upper part of your body. This cut can also work great for hourglass figures, with a ribbon or any other form of décor accentuating the waistline. Visually slimming and elongating, a sheath-cut dress is also perfect for petite brides. There are plenty of ways to jazz up a sheath-cut wedding dress, starting with the waistline. An empire waist which is located just above the natural waistline is a perfect solution for a mommy to be, as it defines the upper body and continues down in a slight flare. Furthermore, the sheath gown is perfect for those head to toe overlays of either lace or mesh.
When it comes to fabrics, chiffon is a popular go for creating that perfect layered look, but other materials like satin can be used to create a more figure-fitting gown. Thanks to the lightness of chiffon, this gown is particularly popular for outdoor wedding venues as well as weddings abroad because of its compressible size.
Make your way down the aisle like a dweller of Olympus and have your natural beauty put on a pedestal in a stylish sheath cut wedding dress.
