A cap-sleeve wedding gown is a great style tool. It provides soft coverage and shows off your arms. You can also make your shoulders look wider which helps balance proportions and gives the illusion of a slimmer waist.
We’ve selected four of our favorite cap-sleeve styles for wedding dresses to show you just how versatile and versatile this wonderful design feature is.
Let’s begin with the figure-hugging Jamilla. This is a great example of Anna Sorrano’s unique blend of timeless and modern styling. The pretty cap sleeves and floral-embellished lace are flattering, with delicate sparkle sequins and beautiful caps. A keyhole design is also featured at the back.
Because they increase the shoulders, cap sleeves are great for a mermaid silhouette. The flared bottom skirt creates the illusion of slimmer waists when they are combined with cap sleeves. To emphasize a slim waistline, we recommend adding a belt.
This is truly exquisite detail. The sweetheart bodice has illusion lace front-back, and the intricate skirt has a layer cobweb lace with floral appliques.
The tapered keyhole back design is super flattering. The dipped back lined adds the illusion of a smaller waist. The skirt is adorned with pretty buttons and has layers of frothy, tulle. Add a bouncy veil to complete the look.
Phoebe is an A-line style with floral embroidered lace and sequin embellishments. The skirt is covered with a variety of appliqués that run along the length, before joining together to form a beautiful lace hem. For extra luxury, there is a Chantilly Lace Underlayer.
Jamilla’s cap sleeves are a bit higher than Phoebe’s. Our in-store Bridal Experts can help you decide which style is best for you. For brides looking for light coverage and a high illusion neckline with delicate appliques, this is a great option.
The back features a high illusion neckline, embellished with beautiful appliques. The buttons are covered and lead to the traditional train. It is truly breathtaking! This classic style can be paired with our Leonie belt, which is simple and elegant, and a simple, yet stunning, satin-edged veil.
Harriet is a flattering A line with classic embroidered and soft eyelash lace trimmings, which might appeal to lace lovers. The lightweight tulle skirt is made of a light ivory lining with layers of soft petticoats. It retains its volume and structure.
Harriet’s bodice features beautiful, wide straps. However, the delicate illusion lace makes them feel soft and understated. The light coverage perfectly offsets the deep V necklines front and back, giving just enough support. Also, the stunning eyelash trim frames the neckline beautifully and gives the gown a vintage feel.
This dress looks great paired with our classic Autumn hairband or our plain tulle veil. Cecilia is another option if you prefer slimmer straps but love the look.
