As new arrivals come in, the skirts on our gowns get a lot of attention. But the top of a gown is often the deciding factor, because it leads to the bride's face and will be in more images from the day than, say, her hemline. The veil, hairpieces and clips, earrings and makeup are important, but the finishing touch is what frames a brides face and the bodice can make a difference.
And then there are other considerations:
> does the bride prefer sleeves?
> is a V-neck flattering?
> does the bride want something provocative or modest?
> does she like her arms and neckline?
> is it a seasonal wedding?
And so on and so on!
Bodice styles include: halter, plunging, strapless, spaghetti strap, bateau, sweetheart, scooped, sheer to name a few.
There are many types of bodice and only a few are shown here, but you should be confident about trying on multiple styles before saying that you don't look good in one or another. We never run out of Surprised Bride Stories here at BT. Come see us!
