The Simple, Sophisticated Sheath
On the other end of the spectrum is the elegant but simple sheath. Form-fitting and understated, this gown style will make you glad you spent all that time at the gym. This year it's often paired with a strapless bodice and may be reimagined with a layer or two of tulle that still lets the bride's silhouette show through a gauzy cloud.
Traditionally, sheath styling can make a shorter bride look taller.
Be forewarned, if this type of gown is made from very thin fabric and without a substantial interlining, it can crush easily.
