Wedding Gown Pick Of The Week: Allure Couture’s C268

My wedding gown pick for this week is all about texture and shape! From the newest collection from Allure Bridals’ Couture line, the C268 is a modified, A-line gown, and it is simply elegant.

The textured lace design is strapless and features tiny bands of satin throughout the silhouette, creating a fabulous shape.

Overall, the dress has a trumpet shape, meaning it is fitted throughout the bodice and hips, but gently flares as the skirt reaches its full, floor length. The neckline is a very subtle sweetheart style, with just a slight dip.

The gown comes in three different color combinations: white lace with silver accents, ivory lace with silver accents, and a champagne, ivory, and silver combination. The dress is available in sizes 2-32.

Always keep in mind that fitted wedding gowns can be very flattering on a variety of sizes! The key to this dress is having a waist that is defined (this does not mean tiny, it simply means that the waist is smaller than the bust and hip). Don’t be afraid to try on lots of wedding gown styles to figure out what works for you! You might be surprised.
