Bridal Style: The Bare Bones
Make no bones about it: brides love the extra support that built in bustiers offer! Corset style wedding dresses are straight up figure flattering for every silhouette. However, more and more designers are choosing to leave bustiers visibly and boldly bare, and this style choice gives wedding dresses an ultra feminine boost with decidedly boudoir vibes. Options range from super sexy sheer panels to barely there overlays. Here are a few of our favorites:
What's your brand of glam? Your sexiest of statements? Your chicest confidence booster?

The D2819 by Essense Designs is all about that graphic lace. Side cutouts and a sheer bodice set the stage for negative space detailing throughout the gown, which flows throughout the silhouette for modern dimension. Linear detailing along the strapless bodice imitates the corset style to draw the eye in flattering lines and a skinny plunge neckline highlight your shape while the laces are thoughtfully cut along the waist to accentuate the curves.

Ah, this little lady, the clean and chic Lindsey by Calla Blanche is back on another list and still bare to the boning! A classic soft satin ballgown, this silhouette features a banded sweetheart neckline, visible boning for a slight Victorian twist, a waist accentuated by a slim, subtly beaded belt and a softly pleated skirt for the dreaming romantic.
