For brides who are unsure if they want a low back or an open back on their dress, a compromise has come. This is a definite “yes!” on our 2015 wedding fashion list! The cowl sweep on your wedding dress will make your back appear slimmer and longer, due to the curve and length of the design, and allows the bride to reveal her back comfortably. A double cowl sweep is an elegant and delicate detail, and also slimming, as the fabric is tucked in at the mid-back, where the ruching affect minimizes the waist. The cowl back doesn’t limit your embellishment possibilities either: you can still add an intricately beaded back, lace straps, and drop-pearl buttons to complete the look.
Look for the cowl back on bridesmaid and maid of honour dresses too!
