We like this look because it is elegant, but still not too covered. You’re still showing a little skin under that lace. It brings the gowns to something a little more traditional, but still young and fashion-forward.
V-necks have always been a good look for a lot of girls.

A v-neck does a nice job of framing one’s collar bones. It’s something to look into if you have a beautiful, and even broad but toned shoulders. They’re also worry-free (Although, we are always remind our brides not to rule out strapless for this reason. With good alterations, that dress is not going anywhere!) and comfortable!
A few designers included one-shoulders in their collections. We’ve had mixed feelings about the one shoulder. While it’s super trendy and can be very flattering (again, this is great if you have pretty collar bones), some brides just aren’t catching on.
Finally, and of course, there are a few full sleeve gowns. This one by Monique Lhuillier is stunning!!!
It’s classic, elegant, and traditional. We’re wondering, though, is the full sleeve look too traditional, is it too trendy or is it falling somewhere in the middle?
Now don’t get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with strapless dresses. In fact, we feel that this time, the designers are catching up with the demands of the brides for once. Our heads are usually spinning wondering, “Why would they EVER try to sell that?!” Now we have, “Why won’t they give us more dresses with sleeves?!” Congratulations, Brides! You’ve dictated the trend this time around. Keep up the good work!
