Dress Silhouette Feature – The Sexy & Simple Wedding Slip Dress

Finding the perfect wedding dress can be challenging for some brides. Many get stressed because they don’t know which silhouette is best for your body or the wedding theme. While others simply struggle to understand the difference between each of the different shapes.

Imagine trying to explain the type of gown you want to a bridal consultant if you don’t know what it’s called. And how can you do a Google search for the perfect used wedding dress if you don’t know the difference between mermaid and trumpet? Luckily, we have your back!

Enjoy our second edition of our “Dress Silhouette Feature.” Today we are explaining a popular silhouette making a massive comeback in 2021 – slip wedding dresses.

A Slip Wedding Dress, What Is It?

A slip wedding dress is a slinky, body-hugging wedding gown that is typically unadorned and simple. It is an excellent choice for the minimalist bride that appreciates sleek and simple designs. Most slip wedding dresses are made of lightweight, silky fabrics such as soft satin, charmeuse, or silk but can also be found in elegant crepe.

What’s the allure of a slip wedding dress, and why is it gaining popularity for 2021 weddings? We’re glad you asked! The slip wedding dress is a gown that has no crinoline (the stiff stuff under the skirt to hold its shape), no layers of tulle, and super comfortable to wear.

The soft and luxurious fabrics drape gently over your skin and have a silky feel similar to lingerie. The beloved slip wedding dress is also gaining popularity because many couples are choosing to elope in 2021, and they are easy to pack.

Most slip dresses have little to no embellishments but do pack a big punch in the style department. Wedding designers add style to the simple slip dress by adding dramatic and sexy touches.

Demur or plunging necklines, low and dramatic backs, delicate straps, and more. If you love minimal details but a sexy silhouette, the slip wedding dress is for you! And don’t worry, if you do love a little added pizazz, there are slip gowns adorned with lace or beading.

Here are some of our favorite body-skimming slip wedding dresses that are sexy and sophisticated. Let’s find the perfect slip wedding gown for your special day!
