Wedding dress with peplum

Peplum is a wide frill that is locat­ed on the line of the belt of a dress, blouse or jack­et. Basque appeared at the begin­ning of the 18th cen­tu­ry. It was used as a dress dec­o­ra­tion for rich and noble women. Such a seem­ing­ly insignif­i­cant detail could make the sil­hou­ette of a woman incred­i­bly fem­i­nine and clear. There­fore, women were ready to pay a lot of mon­ey for peplum out­fits.

In the first half of the 20th cen­tu­ry, such tal­ent­ed design­ers as Chris­t­ian Dior, Thier­ry Mugler and Yves Saint Lau­rent adorned their prod­ucts with peplum. Chris­t­ian Dior, who was the first to offer a peplum as a dec­o­ra­tion, demand­ed to empha­size every­thing that is nar­row and high­light every­thing that is mag­nif­i­cent with the help of it.

After such a tri­umphant return of the Basque, she dis­ap­peared from the fash­ion world for sev­er­al decades. And only the lat­est fash­ion sea­sons girls and women can enjoy peplum dress­es.

Peplum looks great both on evening dress­es and on a wed­ding dress. And today wed­ding dress­es with a peplum are at the peak of pop­u­lar­i­ty.
