It’s fair to say that sexy, sensual, and even provocative wedding dresses are in. These glamourous, scintillating gowns are a popular alternative to traditional looks and styles. Showing a bit more skin and highlighting curves, a sexy wedding dress give brides an opportunity to show off their beauty, feeling desirable and confident on their big day.
Too risqué? Don’t worry, these dresses aren’t going to shock (unless that’s what you’re going for). After all, a bit of mystery goes a long way towards creating a sexy look.
If you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a few tips to help you find a sexy dress so you look stunning on your wedding day… without ruffling any feathers.
Traditional gowns aren’t for everyone. If you feel awkward in one, don’t second-guess it. This is your big day, after all, and who knows your style better than you? That said, sometimes, to find a look that suits you, you have to be willing to take a risk and try new things.
These sexy gowns might feel a bit scandalous at first. Go with it! If you’re trying to relax and find the fun in your search, grab something that truly pushes the envelope and try it on to break the ice. While it might not be what you’re looking for, taking a chance when trying on these gowns can help you get a little more comfortable embracing your sexier side.
And who knows – you might just find something you like!
What is your favourite part of your body? Your back, chest, rear, chest bones, legs, or heels? Find a dress that accentuates your features. Whether it’s through detailing, embroidery, a neckline, a cut, a backless dress, or a dress that hugs your curves, when you look your best, you’re going to feel your best.
The best way to look and feel sexy in a dress is by feeling comfortable. You don’t want a dress that is too tight and restricts movement while you’re dancing and greeting guests. A stiff bride that can’t move might not be the most alluring or sexy of looks, so make sure you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing – because you’re going to be wearing it all day!
This is where fittings come in. Don’t forget – you’ve got several dress fittings leading up to your big day, and your final fitting guarantees that your dress fits perfectly.
When choosing a dress, make sure to wear the right bra for the style, and check for gaping, especially on backless dresses.
Some gowns come with padding in the bra area, but you might also want to wear a strapless, backless, or multi-way bra for added support. Silicon stick-on bras are another option for support in dresses that don’t suit regular bras.
While trying on dresses, sit down, bend forward, backwards, and side to side. Keep an eye out for fabric gaping at the sides. Although showing off some skin is sexy, side boob and nip slips might be too much.
While some dresses may be too sexy for you, you can find a balance between sexy and classy. A sophisticated, elegant look can be pulled off with a combination of dress, hair, makeup, and accessories. Instead of pairing dramatic hair and makeup with an ultra-sexy dress, try understated hair and makeup for a balanced look.
And remember, nothing’s sexier than confidence and leaving something to the imagination. So flaunt a dress that makes you feel amazing.
A backless dress can be sexy and elegant, especially with a long skirt. How far down you go with the seam is up to you. The deeper the plunge, the racier the dress.
A plunging V-shaped neckline is daring and sexy. These work well with long, form-fitting dresses, like mermaid dresses.
These necklines show off the shoulders and a modest amount of the chest and back. For some, that’s the right amount of sexy.
For a fun alternative to full gowns, crop top wedding dresses show off the midriff and curves. These dresses allow for various mix and match options for the top and skirt. Long-sleeved and short-sleeved crop tops go well with long skirts. And high necklines suit these tops as well.
Sexy doesn’t have to be about showing off skin. Dresses that hug your figure, showing off your body’s silhouette are just as sexy. But if do you want to show some skin, a long form-fitting mermaid dress with a low back and neckline is elegant and seductive.
Thigh-high slits, both single and double, have made their way to sexy wedding dresses. There are even slits that go up to the hip. How high you go is up to you. Slits are a great way to show some leg without baring all.
Barely-there or illusion panelling uses nude fabric on the bodice, giving the illusion that the bride is barely covered. Sheer panelling is also popular, using strategically-placed sequins, lace, and floral details to maintain some modest covering.
No matter how much (or how little) skin you choose to show off, you can look sexy and classy on your big day. Find a dress that makes you happy, comfortable, and confident. And if you turn heads while leaving something to the imagination, then you’ve done well finding that perfect sexy wedding dress.
