What we love about this dress is that it combines the best aspects of two classic bridal silhouettes, the mermaid and the A-line gown. It’s cut very close to the body, just like a column, grabbing the body very tightly around the waist and hip and cinching in at the back. Then there’s a very rigid, strapless corset bodice with visible boning that is covered with a chantilly lace applique and veiled with asymmetrically-draped tulle. That gives it a beautiful sense of movement, almost like a brushstroke.
