Incredibly versatile, every lace wedding dress guarantees one thing – elegance. With so many style options, what type of lace wedding dress should you go for? Follow our guide on how to wear lace to flatter your figure, and wear your lace wedding dress with confidence
Athletic Brides- nude lace
One of the biggest bridal trends emerging in 2015 is nude lace. This unique take on the classical lace wedding dress is popping up on the hottest catwalks all over the world. Naked lace is the perfect alternative for the bride with an athletic body shape. The subtle introduction of colour adds volume to the material and produces the illusion of curves. This fab Rivini wedding dress has just the right amount of fit and flare to really show off your stunning figure.
Big Busted Brides- modest detailing and capped sleeves
Sometimes lace can be a big busted bride’s best friend. Having intricate lace detailing around the bust area is the best way to ensure coverage without compromising on style.
You should shy away from sleeveless options and instead opt to add capped lace sleeves. Capped sleeves have the support of straps but look pretty as well. The lace will add a romantic glamour to the dress while helping to balance your shoulders in proportion to your bust.
Hour Glass Bride- head-to-toe lace
What better way to accentuate your hourglass frame than a figure hugging lace wedding dress? Look classical and beautiful in a dress that accentuates your gorgeous natural curves. Break up the lace with an embellished belt to really accentuate your waist. For a sexier look, go for back detailing- one of the biggest trends this year!
Apple Shaped Brides- lace embroidery and veils
An A-line dress with a dropped waist is the go-to wedding dress for apple shaped brides! Lace embroidery is a great way to enhance this rather simple style. We love the delicate detailing on this curve skimming, lace wedding dress by House of Nicholas! Accessorise with a flowing lace veil to add an extra touch of allure.
Petite Brides- lace sheath and tea length
Whimsical, vintage lace was made for petite brides. One of the best styles to go for as a petite bride is a unique tea length dress. This short dress option looks fabulous in summer and lets you show off your shoes! If you want to stick to a more traditional style, the straight design of a sheath wedding dress elongates your figure. The lace on this Modeca gown creates the illusion of a longer torso and looks amazing!
Pear Shaped Brides- lace detailing and large skirts
Pear shaped brides should stay away from designs that hug your bottom half so avoid mermaid or fish tale styles with fit and flare. Instead, accentuate your tiny upper body with lace detailing and skim your curves with a ball gown style skirt. Look like a princess in this amazing lace wedding dress by Pronovias.
Plus sized brides- illusion lace sleeves
Every fashionista needs lace illusion for their 2015 wedding! Lace illusion is best achieved by adding sleeves to a dress. A lace wedding dress is a must for the plus size bride as it helps to create a flawless silhouette. This stunning creation by Roz La Kelin uses lace to add diagonal structure to the dress in order to cinch in your waist and show off your smooth, stunning curves.
