One of our favorite chiffon gowns this season is the Alfred Sung D718 bridesmaid dress. Simple and unadorned, it’s directional ruching gives it a unique angular look on the bodice, and a soft crinkle texture that makes it especially easy to wear. Chic and sleeveless, the whole look gives off Grecian overtones, and would be gorgeous for a destination or beachside wedding.
A Chiffon Bridesmaid Dress
If you want to create an ethereal, angelic, look for your wedding, there is nothing like the look of flowing chiffon. Soft, wispy, and barely-there, chiffon bridesmaid dresses give you the feeling of floating in on a cloud.
When you look good you feel good. Your wedding attendants will feel so gorgeous in this gown, they just might thank you. The top is draped with vertical ruching and accented with diagonal gathers. It meets at the top of the neckline, forming a triangle in the center. The direction of the styling gives the dress a unique touch. The ruching creates texture while cleverly camouflages any problem spots while a sash belt at the waist nips in the waistline. Its square neckline cuts straight across with wide tapered straps attached on the sides, rounding the shoulder.
These straps are especially versatile and can be styled to your liking. Gather up the fabric to create a more tapered strap, or spread it along the shoulder to create more coverage. They can even be pushed off-the-shoulder to create a totally different look. It’s one way to change up everyone’s look while keeping a look of continuity throughout.
Skirt The Issue
Because the light, airy chiffon knit is see-through, therefore, the D718 is completely lined in coordinating fabric. The skirt falls in a slim A-line silhouette, gathered gently at the waist, and falling to floor length for a formal look. Gathering at the waistline ensures the skirt does not cling around the hip, allowing it to flow down, skimming over any possible lumps and bumps along the way. For the reverse, an invisible center back zipper fastens it all up.
A Little Something Extra
Extra material is available by the yard as well as swatches to help you narrow down your color of choice. Some brides also like to acquire extra fabric to make their own perfectly coordinated accessories for their bridesmaids. That includes shawls, wraps, rosettes, and headbands. Swatches are also offered for a small shipping and handling fee. Ordering a swatch can help you narrow down your color choice, and be absolutely sure what you’re getting, since computer monitors can display colors differently.
It’s All About Choices
The Alfred Sung D718 bridesmaid dress is nicely priced at under two hundred dollars. That makes it a wise choice for bridesmaids on a budget. It is offered in over 25 color choices, including purple, pink and blush, magenta, pastel yellow, black, gray and more. It can be made to order in any size, 00-30W. And for the tall ladies, the skirt can be purchased in longer increments of five inches at a time.
