Surprise elements that take a dress from plain to perfect are what the Alfred Sung D655 bridesmaid dress is all about. It’s the subtle details that make a dress memorable. Unique touches and unexpected details make this particular bridesmaid dress a stunning choice. Its split scoop neckline makes it a little less ordinary than a typical gown, while still remaining elegant. Your bridesmaids will adore it, and the sleeveless cut and A-line silhouette will look good on every body type.
This bridesmaid gown features the contemporary styling and craftsmanship we have to expect from Alfred Sung dresses. It also has one special feature we haven’t seen anywhere else in bridesmaids dresses before, a split boat neckline! Its bodice is fitted with princess seams and a center seam that create slimming vertical lines. Wide set shoulders are so flattering, with a bateau top that shows off the collarbones, and the wider shoulder straps are easier to wear and less revealing. The center seam opens up to a V-neckline in the middle of the scoop. A wide, inset waistband pulls in the middle and creates a smooth waistline.
The skirt is crisply pleated with two deep knife pleats on either side that give the skirt plenty of body and standout shape. Pockets hidden in the side seams are a utilitarian feature that we’re totally loving. Stylish and handy, now you can easily stash your phone and a lipstick without being bogged down by purse. It makes us wonder why every skirt isn’t made with pockets. The back of the skirt does not have pleats but does have two darts at the back waist to give it a more fitted shape at the top. It falls to floor length in a classic A-line silhouette that will flatter any body type. For the back of the dress, its beauty is not compromised. It has a scooped backline which dips to mid back and fastens closed with discreet invisible zipper. For tall ladies, extra length can be added to the skirt in five inch increments.
Made of sateen twill, this dress boasts a soft sheen, and the fabric has a medium weight which holds its shape nicely. Extra material is offered by the yard, which you can use to whip up some matching wraps, headbands, or shawls. The extra material could also be incorporated into your decor or used as a table runner.
The Alfred Sung D655 bridesmaid dress comes in sizes 0 – 18 and is available for immediate delivery, meaning it ships right away, and does not require the typical sixteen week production time that most dresses take to be made, perfect for brides in a rush or as a backup dress in an emergency. It is offered in five colors: blossom (blush pink pastel), coastal (light ocean blue), royal blue, midnight, or oyster. Swatches are available for a small shipping charge to help you with color selection.
If you love the style but not the length, you are in luck. This dress is also available in a cocktail length version as style D654.
