When going for maximum impact, the strapless wedding dress has long set the standard for elegant, sexy style. Strapless wedding dresses are ideal for showing off graceful shoulders, a beautiful décolletage or an amazing necklace, and can be sweet and traditional or sexy and daring depending on the details. Strapless wedding dresses are great for pear shapes and petite busts but can also be good options for curvier figures as these shapes often fit beautifully into the construction of the dress. The line of the strapless wedding dress can range from column, to floor length, empire to tea-length but the flattering, waist-defining, and slimming effects are throughout. Strapless wedding gowns are great for showing off jewelry as well; accessory-minded women are often drawn to this style to showcase spectacular earrings and wedding necklaces or unique veils and headpieces.
