Long sleeve wedding dresses

Almost every wed­ding dress of the last cen­tu­ry had sleeves. The pres­ence of this detail was a sym­bol of ele­gance and mod­esty. Fash­ion for wed­ding dress­es with long sleeves returned to us after the wed­ding of Kate Mid­dle­ton and Prince William. The future bride of the heir to the British throne and the favorite of most famous cou­turi­ers chose a del­i­cate wed­ding dress with lace sleeves, sim­i­lar to the one that the famous Hol­ly­wood actress Grace Kel­ly once wore to her wed­ding.

Benefits of a long sleeve wedding dress

Today, this style is expe­ri­enc­ing a new boom in pop­u­lar­i­ty among future brides. And this is not sur­pris­ing, because such an out­fit has a very fem­i­nine look and has a num­ber of func­tion­al fea­tures.

  1. If your wed­ding is sched­uled for the cold sea­son, a win­ter wed­ding dress with sleeves will come in handy. Of course, you can com­ple­ment an open sleeve­less mod­el with a fur cape or a bolero, but why not fol­low the lat­est fash­ion trends and treat your­self to a sophis­ti­cat­ed out­fit with sleeves?
  2. A wed­ding dress with open­work sleeves will hide slight­ly plump arms and visu­al­ly expand nar­row shoul­ders. If there are tat­toos or scars on the hands of the future bride, a long-sleeved dress will become a kind of life­saver for her, which will hide such flaws from pry­ing eyes.
  3. A closed wed­ding dress with sleeves is ide­al for a bride who does not want to be too bare. Such an out­fit looks very chaste, ele­gant and brings a cer­tain mys­tery to the image of the bride.

Short, long, puffy, nar­row, with dif­fer­ent neck­lines, from dif­fer­ent fab­rics — the list of pos­si­ble vari­a­tions is end­less! Such a wide choice allows each future bride to choose her own mod­el of a wed­ding dress, which will favor­ably empha­size the exist­ing advan­tages and hide the flaws of the female fig­ure.

Brides who pre­fer clas­sic out­fits can opt for a puffy wed­ding dress with sleeves and a grace­ful V‑neckline. Such an out­fit looks very har­mo­nious and ele­gant, and also visu­al­ly length­ens the neck.

A straight wed­ding dress with sleeves will suit short girls with a frag­ile fig­ure and grace­ful hands. Visu­al­ly stretch­ing the fig­ure, such a mod­el will become a life­saver for petite brides. A sim­i­lar out­fit made of guipure will empha­size the beau­ty of the girl’s swarthy skin.

Girls who pre­fer more dar­ing options may pre­fer a short wed­ding dress with sleeves. This mod­el is ide­al for own­ers of beau­ti­ful slen­der legs. The pres­ence of long sleeves will bal­ance the length of the dress and turn it into an ele­gant roman­tic out­fit.

Asym­met­ri­cal mod­els with one long sleeve are also pop­u­lar among girls. An orig­i­nal dress with a slight hint of extrav­a­gance will not leave indif­fer­ent even the most demand­ing fash­ion­istas.

No less pop­u­lar are vin­tage wed­ding dress­es with lace sleeves. Retro is still in fash­ion!

For tai­lor­ing wed­ding dress­es with long sleeves, fab­rics such as silk, satin, chif­fon or lace are used. How­ev­er, the “palm tree” belongs to dress­es, the sleeves of which are made of the most del­i­cate guipure or tulle, embroi­dered with beads, gold­en threads, pearls or sequins.
