Want Attention? Try This Electric Blue Alfred Sung D698 Dress

An epitome of classic elegance, the Alfred Sung D698 bridesmaid dress offers a timeless look that blends easily into any type of church wedding ceremony. It has an A-line silhouette that virtually flatters almost any figure type, making it an ideal choice especially if you are having your bridesmaids wear the same style and color. It is tailored in sateen twill, which is soft to the touch and has a somewhat subdued lustrous finish compared to the striking glossiness of regular satin. This gives your bridesmaids the freedom to choose their own accessories, without looking overdone.Alfred Sung D698 Long Bridesmaid Dress

After choosing your wedding gown, as the bride, your next most challenging task probably is picking a suitable bridesmaid dress. And understandably so, as you have to consider a number of girls with essentially, varying physical attributes and personalities. In fact, perhaps the only common thing among them is that each one is dear to you, which makes choosing the bridesmaid gown all the more complicated. Of course, there’s no turning back on this important aspect, thus you might as well begin the selection process, starting with the length. This Alfred Sung long dress runs full-length to a high-low hemline, giving it a contemporary look that will complement a wedding gown with a chapel or longer train. Furthermore, this style gives the girls the chance to showcase their individuality by choosing a pair of colorful pumps or multi-strap sandals, and effortlessly show them off to the world.

Bateau Neckline

One of the most prominent features of this sleeveless D698 dress is the bateau neckline, otherwise known as the Sabrina neckline, which was inspired from the same-titled movie by Audrey Hepburn. It conceals the collarbones, drawing attention to the face and neck while extending the shoulders. This makes it suitable for both lean and full-figured women, particularly those not wanting to highlight the bust area. Unlike its vintage inspiration though, the neckline of this dress transitions into a scoop down the mid-back, again giving it a modern twist but maintaining its modest appeal. It also creates some sort of balance with the tea-length front hem.

The Silhouette

The fitted bodice tapers the torso with front and back princess seaming, which runs smoothly toward the natural waist. This perfectly defines its classic A-line silhouette, along with the full-length skirt that hangs off the fitted waist and then gradually opens to a gracefully flared hemline. It gives emphasis to the upper body, while beautifully covering up the imperfections beneath. A concealed zipper at the back secures and completes this minimalist bridesmaid dress.

While most bridesmaid dresses bear that wedding-only look, the Alfred Sung D698 is something that you can definitely wear in other formal occasions. You can easily upgrade or downgrade it with various accessories, or boost its vintage appeal with a pair of pearl earrings. It is offered in sizes 00 to 30W, each with extra length options for taller women. It is available in almost 30 colors, ranging from light hues such as Blush and Ivory, to rich tones like Emerald and Electric Blue. You can find this style at Madame Bridal, with a standard delivery time of 16 weeks. Various rush options are also available, at a minimal cost.
