From her first step down the aisle, to the last barefoot dance, all eyes are on the beautiful bride. In her quest to celebrate these magical moments from every angle, Claire was one of the first bridal designers to choose the back as a focal point in her designs, and over the years, this has become one of the signature details of a Claire Pettibone gown. The curve of a woman’s back is a beautiful spot for a sheer inset of lace, a lyrical floral detail, or a sensuous sweep of skin.
Q: How do we give a bride support through the bust with a sheer back?
A: Our gowns are made without structure so that each individual can select what is needed. A bride with a small chest may opt for nothing at all, or soft inserts, while we recommend underwire cups for a fuller bust. Your stylist can guide you in the steps to ensure a proper fit, but don’t hesitate to fall in love with a beautiful back!
Here are just a few of our gorgeous real, and styled brides.
