Bridal Fashion - Wedding Dress Shoots



Wedding dresses with cut-outs



The cut-out craze continues to dominate the catwalk as designers incorporate new and ultra seductive ways to expose some skin without baring all, merging classic lines with contemporary cuts to smouldering effect.

The main way to achieve this is through strips and shapes, with sexy side and lower back cut-outs being the most popular features. Shape-wise, U, V and triangle are top of the list, with cut-out waists following closely behind.

Illusion layering, nude overlays and delicate lace panels (with embroidery) provide a more subtle take on the trend, or for a more daring look - opt for criss-cross strapping and midriff flossing (thin straps that wrap around your bare midsection), which are perfect for open-waisted dresses or separates such as crop tops.

Extend the sense of drama with a portrait back (especially if lace trimmed) or a romantic sweetheart or keyhole bodice, whose bold outlines accentuate the natural curvature of the body for an ultra feminine fit.
