Dress of the Month ~ August

This elegant bridal gown is Caitlin! A stunning combination of a pleated organza bodice, lace skirt and satin waistband, this style features a fluted a-line silhouette, and a strapless neckline. My favourite feature of this gown is the obi style belt at the waist with a chunky Swarovski crystal motif at the centre, which draws the eye to the smallest part of the body and emphasises an hourglass silhouette. The positioning of the belt fairly high on the waistline makes it super flattering for petite girls as it elongates the legs without shortening the torso. Our stock gown has the belt in a slightly darker shade than the ivory of the gown – the deeper tone draws the eye even more to the waist.

I also love the fact that the lace is un-beaded, yet somehow it looks more modern than the traditional sparkly laces, but it feels classic and unpretentious as well.

Another stunning feature of this gown is the back – delicate satin buttons run the entire length of the train with a crystal beaded decoration scattered in between. It makes such a pretty sparkly feature on an otherwise un-beaded style.

Caitlin is my current favourite because she flatters so many different body types – she is just as stunning on curvier size 18 girls as slim size 8s.
