Lace peplum wedding dresses are figure flattering and modern
Lace peplum wedding dresses symbolize a happy marriage between two fashionable elements, lace and peplum. Both these elements are known for their ability to add elegance and class to any outfit, and what better combination could constitute a wedding gown? Lace, whether jacquard or machine made, is delicate and known for its subtle but classy effect, while peplum is popularly known as the “hip and tummy saver” as it helps conceal stomach and hip bulges. The lace peplum wedding dress will serve the purpose of a bride who wants her outfit to bridge the gap between traditional and modern.
Bringing lace and peplum, two structurally different elements together, is no mean feat. A few select wedding dress designers have, however, successfully managed to construct their own unique visions of a lace peplum wedding gown; notably, Angel Sanchez, Ines Di Santo, Alfred Angelo, and Carolina Herrera. Not to be forgotten is veteran wedding dress designer, Vera Wang, who is known for her love for lace and unusual patterns.
One of the best lace peplum wedding gown collections was recently presented by Romona Keveza, who’s “Legends” collection featured a wide variety of sleek, structured lace, silk, and peplum wedding gowns with sweeping mermaid skirts and high waists as is the usual structure of a peplum dress.
Every designer has had their own unique take on the lace and peplum trend, starting from Dior in the 1940’s with their gowns with jackets nipped at the waist with peplum, to frills, exaggerated layers and structured ruffles as presented by Marchesa, Reem Acra and Monique Lhuillier. The overall objective and reason for popularity of a lace and peplum gown is its ability to create a slimming silhouette.
This, it achieves with great success, thanks to the structure of the peplum, which conceals the problem area, i.e. the waist and stomach, and also thanks to the lace, which is a lifesaver for those who want to show a little skin without going over the top. The combination of a lace neckline with lace sleeves, juxtapose with a peplum skirt and a lace train is what constitutes the average lace peplum dress, a slimming, flattering and truly elegant wedding dress which complements all figures.
From high profile designers to avant-garde designers, creative companies have their own take on this unique, figure friendly, universally flattering wedding dress style. Couture runways are filled with various interpretations, and it is not uncommon to note that celebrities too, are embracing it. For plus size brides, the peplum should be on the narrow side with less flair, while slimmer brides could opt for some dramatic flair. In the same way, smaller lace designs and patterns will flatter a curvaceous figure, while larger patterns can not only flatter a petite figure, but will also give the illusion of curves.
