My favourite dress this month is a perfect little summertime wedding dress! The lovely ‘Amber’ by Sottero & Midgley, is a fab little chiffon number that is a million times more flattering than most other chiffon bridal gowns.
This gorgeous gown features the famed Sottero corsetry which really pulls in your waist and creates the perfect hourglass shape. Far too often bridal gowns made in chiffon feature a more empire line silhouette which unfortunately doesn’t flatter many girls. Whilst it is said that empire lines are perfect for pear shapes, I actually find that unless you add long bodied and tall into that equation, empire lines can actually exaggerate a big bum and hips. Thankfully though, this beauty has a long bodied corset which creates fantastic curves and really showcases your waist.
This gown features a small a-line skirt and a small puddle train. The slim fit and light weight of the skirt makes this gown ideal for wearing in the summertime. I can totally picture this dress being worn on a beach somewhere! And since it is so lightweight without much of a train, it is perfect for a beach wedding as you won’t end up trawling half the beach with you! It is also perfectly compact and would fold up nicely into your hand luggage.
The detail on this gown is sparkly but subtle. Lace appliqués with pretty beading adorn the bodice but elsewhere the detail is limited to the pleating and movement of the chiffon. It really is so pretty!
