How About Sheath Wedding Dresses for Chic Simplicity?

If, to you, style means simple and chic with a modern twist then sheath wedding dresses might be the style you're looking for.

With a slim-fitting silhouette, built to suit all those ladies with a slim-line body shape, a sheath style is also versatile.

While taller brides might be attracted to the way this cut flaunts a statuesque figure, petites can also be helped along by its ability to elongate. Beware to all brides though – this style draws the eye to each curve.

Despite this style looking stunning in the most unfussy of designs, it also gets away with detail and embellishments in a range of fabrics.

Because the cut is so simple, it almost acts as a blank canvas for its creators. Sleeves, necklines and accessories can also give a look that varies hugely.

Brides who want something a little less traditional can go for a one-shoulder gown or even a daring split in the skirt.

One thing to be careful of with this design is over-doing the cleavage. Consider that neckline according to your body shape because sheath style is, by its very nature, quite sexy.  Over-do the bust and you could be going overboard.

Sheath wedding dresses are ideal for modern or vintage looks, and fit almost any wedding setting. They are especially perfect for anyone who wishes to have a modest ceremony or laid-back do. They are romantic yet unobtrusive, graceful yet unpretentious.

However, do put thought into how you might make this style fit if your wedding is lavish and set in a traditional church venue. Try a for example a long train or glamorous full-length veil.
