Less is More: 20 Column/Sheath Wedding Dresses

If you are looking to show off your curves in a minimalistic way - a column or sheath wedding style just may be for you.

Both column and sheath styles contour closely to the body for a very fitted look. These cuts are straight, with no waist, causing them to loosely lay along the bride's natural curves. If you really want to show off your shape on your big day - these gowns are definitely for you. The silhouette's may seem simple, even minimal, but they can make a big impact, without all of the loud volume. Thinking you are ready to try this modern silhouette on for size - then check out some of our favorites.
