I am looking for a modest, but not frumpy, wedding gown. I would love to get ideas from you all!
Here are some specifications I’m looking for:
Nothing that emphasizes boobs
Full back coverage
At least short sleeves
I prefer lacy over sparkly
Nothing form-fitting like mermaid style
Also nothing too “poofy,” like a ball gown that sticks out a mile in every direction
Here is an example of what I like:
Thank you all!

mine didn’t have sleeves, but it’s very modest, fittned but not too much so and the illusion neckline makes sure to cover the chest in a nice way.

oh it was by Watters and they have a few other dresses like this – it had a sheer back, but it covered my back (I have some light scarring on my back I didn’t want to show).

this was my dress:
and i loved it. i think it ticks your boxes bar the sleeves (which it doesn’t have). i felt secure and modest without feeling at all frumpy.

Have you checked out BHLDN? They have several dresses that match your description. I got mine from there and loved it

Pronovias “Michigan” is a style I have been eyeing online and hope to try on if I haven’t found a dress by the time I go to NY in a few weeks.
The dress is strapless but appears to have a bolero that complements it perfectly.
I have also been looking at the “Lanete” style which seems to have a lace jacket but was a 2014 style. This one is a bit more fitted – although tastefully svelte and might be a bit more form-fitting than you are looking for.

xkrsa: more gorgeous up close. I recognize the garden roses, hydragea, Lavendar. Are those olive leaves? I don’t recognize the silvery “beads” in the front.

fscarlett: olive branches, but I’m not sure what the silvery beads are! 🙂 I gave my florist creative liberty!
