- Wedding: May 2014
Everyone’s just telling you about the “omg it’s revealing” and I figure if you like this that’s not a problem for you so I just wanted to point out the design aspects that I’m not particularly fond of. If you like this etheral sheer type style there are other designers that do it much better. You might like Claire Pettibone.
Even on the model, I don’t find it a flattering look, and if I were a guest at a wedding where the bride wore that, I would not be able to stop thinking about this image that went viral a few weeks ago.
When you decide to be unconventional, you have to be careful that you are not so completely unconventional that you create a distraction. That dress is very distracting.
I honestly thought this was some (Very fancy!) bridal lingerie. Are we sure this is actually meant to be a gown? I really thought it was lingerie/lounging on honeymoon with hubby wear.
The only way I think I would wear something like this was if I was eloping with only a witness and my husband. I can’t imagine wearing that in front of a group of people. Not because I’m shy, but because I find it wildly inappropriate and more sexually distracting than needed for a wedding with many people.
Honestly. .I usually think her dresses are trashy….but omfg. .I LOVE this!! But not for a church or synagogue wedding
You should look into Berta gowns. .very sexy but still classy. An Israeli designer
In all honesty, looking back I see what you all mean – I think I got a little over-excited when I saw the first dress I actually liked so far! 😛
I really dont want to say this, but since you asked …. I hate that dress. hate it. a lot. Im sorry 🙁
I’m not a prude, but I would have a hard time looking at someone in that dress. It would feel awkward.
I think you should just go try on different styles of dresses. I got so caught up with one particular style that I ended up not liking on me. Different styles have will feel different on you, and that doesn’t come through on a model picture. Good luck!
Agree with everyone else – it looks like lingerie or some sort of sexy Snow Queen halloween costume. I never understood the purpose of nude lining either – is it to look naked without actually being naked? Whats the point?
I love sexy dresses and am all for lace, sheer panelling (in less intimate areas!), low backs etc. If you like this style then try out Katie May (amazing backless dresses), Grace loves Lace, Nicole Miller, Amanda Wakeley, Selia Yang and the Love Marley collection by Watters. They all have sexy styles far nicer than this. These are 2 of my personal favourites –
