If you like the look of bold florals but are hesitant to drape your entire body in them, the Alfred Sung D723CP bridesmaid dress is a beautiful compromise. As a sister style to Alfred Sung bridesmaid dresses D724CP and D722, all of these gowns share the same floral skirt but the D723CP has a sleeveless, solid color bodice. Its skirt is also a marriage of two looks, falling to ankle length in the front, and floor length in the back. Whether you call it a high low dress, or a mullet dress, we call it unique and gorgeous.
There are a number of great features to mention about the Alfred Sung D723CP bridesmaid dress. Starting with the obvious, the water color inspired floral print. So rich we can almost smell the perfume of the flowers, there’s just something about floral prints that brightens the day. Floral print adds a bit of whimsy, it’s fun, agreeable, and isn’t fussy. The solid color on top brings us out of clouds and back to earth, and it isn’t too busy for the photographs. For the skirt, the A-line shape giving us major vintage vibes, and its especially easy for anyone to wear. Not only that, but the raised hem in the front ensures no one will be taking a tumble, from tripping on her gown anyway.
Here are the details from top to bottom. The look starts with a solid colored strapless bodice which is complimented by a chic V-neckline that flatters and creates a swan-like neck. It has a modest, medium plunge that isn’t too showy. Its sleeveless cut was made to show off the arms with the illusion if added length. Princess seams give the bodice a streamlined fit and add flattering curved lines that slim the midsection. An inset waistband of floral fabric nips the natural waistline. Bodice color selection is limited to white or the same pink as the floral background color.
The skirt has a classic A-line silhouette and features the colorful print on both sides of the fabric so that it looks beautiful underneath the peek-a-boo high-low hem. The Alfred Sung team of designers really thought of even the smallest details when making this bridesmaid dress collection and it makes all the difference. Its slight high-low hemline gives us a peek at pair of color coordinating shoes. We’re totally in love with the look the model is wearing: a bright red shoe! A pop of color which brings out the flowers in the skirt nicely.
Sateen twill fabric gives this gown a gorgeous finish with a light sheen. It also feels soft against the skin for a long day and evening of wear. Plus-size bridesmaids can wear the same gowns because this style is available in a vast range of sizes, 00-30W, with extra length for the skirt also available in five-inch increments.
DIY brides, craft your heart out! Extra fabric available by the yard in this gorgeous floral print affords us so many options. From decopage to matching shawls, rosettes, wristlets, and headbands, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Swatches are also available to help you narrow down your color choice.
