Dress Silhouette Feature - The Sexy & Simple Slip Wedding Dress

For the bride wanting minimal details, clean lines, and something super comfortable, a slip wedding dress is the way to go.

Not only is a slip dress totally sophisticated, it’s timeless and sexy all in one. If you’re not 100% sure what a slip wedding dress is, we’ll break it down below.

What is a Slip Wedding Dress?

A slip wedding dress is very simple—it’s similar to a silky slip that you would wear under another dress. It has no extra fabric like tulle or crinoline to hold its shape, making it very soft and luxurious (think lingerie).

For the most part, slip dresses have little to no embellishments, meaning they’re simple yet dramatic. They typically hug your body, allowing you to really show off your curves.

Totally sold? So are we! Here are five fabulous slip dress options to get you in the wedding dress mood.

1. Lilou – Alexandra Grecco

First up, this stunning Lilou gown from Alexandra Grecco.

This off-white wedding dress is made of 100% silk crepe, aka totally dreamy, and features a stunning v-neck and low back.

The skirt has a classic fit with a gentle flair at the bottom.

Completing the minimalist look are delicate spaghetti straps.

The bride looks so stunning here and we love how she finished the ensemble with a soft updo.

You can also glam up the look with some dangle & drop earrings.

2. Mirall – Watters

This next option has a ton of interesting detail without being overly embellished.

The Mirall gown by Watters is dramatic with Gatsby-inspired flair. From the cool cowl neckline to the charmeuse one-shoulder, this satin gown is super glam. Plus, the draping really allows this dress to have a totally unique shape.

For the final detail, a row of buttons trailing from waist to hem allows you to reveal as much, or as little, as you desire. It’s just so sexy!

3. Holden – Willowby

Who said a slip dress couldn’t have a little fun? This Holden dress by Willowby features dreamy Pasteur floral lace and illusion tulle all the way down to the chapel train.

A flattering v-neck and strappy, open back are just extra accents to this romantic look. It’s the best of both worlds in our opinion: flirty yet feminine. We can’t wait to see this scene-stealer head down the aisle.

4. Ginger – Amy Kuschel


Hellooo, Ginger! If you want to look and feel like a movie star, then the Ginger slip dress is your girl.

Draped in 6-ply silk crepe, Ginger is oh-so luxurious. Dainty spaghetti straps keep the dress in place while the side slit allows you to show just a little leg for a sexy touch.

We totally imagine this gown for a stunning beach wedding or a Hollywood glam affair. Just add faux fur or a feather stole and you’re back in the 1940’s!

5. Alexandra – BHLDN

BHLDN Alexandra Wedding Dress

Rounding out our fab five, the Alexandra gown from BHLDN. It’s another silk crepe creation, but this time with a daring plunging neckline.

We love how this simple dress comes to life through the rich draping, creating a luxe silhouette. For a modern touch, a dramatic side slit and strappy open back. It’s bold and it’s definitely on our radar for future minimalist brides.
