1/ Strapless

Straight, sweetheart and shallow V’s are popular necklines for strapless styles. Unsupported by straps or sleeves, a good amount of boning, bust padding and a snug fit is required to ensure a strapless neckline stays in place the whole night. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Baker Wedding Gown by Pronovias, Shannon Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal and Oberon Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

2/ Spaghetti Straps

Slim and dainty, spaghetti straps are thin straps which can offer extra support to strapless styles and break up the exposed decolletage. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Joy Wedding Dress by Calla BlancheKaylee Wedding Dress by Moonlight Bridal and Antiope Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

3/ Swag Sleeves

Swag sleeves are another way to add more interest to a strapless style. Attached to the bodice under the arms and draping off the shoulders, Swag sleeves can range from lace loops fixed to the upper arm, or loose and flowing tulle bands falling to the elbow. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Teresa Wedding Dress by Calla BlancheHenrietta Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche and Kimora Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche.

4/ Sleeveless 

Sleeveless bodice styles feature an open armhole circling from the shoulder down to under the arm, typically featuring a wide strap supporting a V or scoop neck. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Calypso Wedding Dress by Calla BlancheHeidi Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche and Eureka Wedding Gown by Pronovias

5/ Off-The-Shoulder

A flirty and sultry neckline with the off-the-shoulder sleeves drape seductively past the curves of your shoulders, sitting on the upper arm. Unlike swag sleeves, the straps of an off-the-shoulder style flow continuously from the bodice. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Farrah Wedding Gown by PronoviasRea Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Uyuni Wedding Dress by Pronovias. 

6/ Cap Sleeves

Cap sleeves cover just the tops of your shoulders, cutting in diagonally to disappear under the arms. Cap sleeves are an elegant way to add sleeves to a design without adding a full sleeve. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Dominique Wedding Dress by PronoviasBromo Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Anitra Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

7/ Short Sleeves

Offering more coverage than cap sleeves, short sleeves finish half way down the upper arm. The simple sophistication lends itself to more mature and timeless styles. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Maroon Wedding Dress by PronoviasClose Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Abby Wedding Dress by Pronovias

8/ Puff Sleeves

The extra volume added to puff sleeves is beautiful, as the peak above the shoulder adds a more vintage feel to short sleeves. This is accentuated in Taffeta and Mikado fabrics which hold their shape. The structure of puffed sleeves can add a sculptural element to a wedding dress. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Cherry Wedding Dress by Calla BlancheIxion Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Masazir Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

9/ Long Sleeves

Half sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and full sleeves add elegance and grace to any wedding dress, regardless of neckline and silhouette. Long sleeve with illusion and lace styles give the opportunity to add floating design details up and down the arm. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Milady Wedding Dress by PronoviasForrest Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche and Gaia Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche.
