Basque Waistline Wedding Dress Inspiration

Basque Waistline Wedding Dress Inspiration

Basque waistlines are of French origin, dip right below the natural waist, and we’re used to seeing them on our favorite princess plucked from popular fairy-tale pages. The soft curving lines at the bottom of the bodice come to a point at the center front, elongating the body for a sweet-yet-regal look. And we adore its classic, yet unique appeal.

These silhouettes are extremely flattering to the feminine figure and create a statement that isn’t seen as frequently on those walks down the aisle. Which, in our opinion, make these gowns even more of a dreamy, attractive choice. Let’s gather some inspiration now, shall we?

This bohemian-style Galia Lahav dress combines blush, silver, and ivory into a single ethereal look. It may stray from the traditional, bridal gown but it incorporates so many stunning details that even our classic brides will want a piece of this one.

The off the shoulder neckline, the dipping, basque waistline, it’s all so effortlessly stunning and looks to be plucked straight from the pages of a fairytale book

There’s even a train to make the entire look even more magical. The overlay lace and the details on the bodice should get a closer look as well.
