Dress of the Week: April

So this is our gorgeous April… Now she doesn’t have the best hanger apparel in the world, but when she is on she is simply stunning! (Megan’s personal fav!)



She is a gorgeous fit and flare by Nieve Couture, perfect if you are looking for a classic, sophisticated look for your big day. She has a fully boned bodice with a gorgeous plunge neck line that is mirrored at the back of the dress. She also has an internal bra strap, which is great for holding the weight of her on your waist and giving you a little more support. However, deep V-necklines can be something that feel a little scary (especially when we have been living in baggy jumpers and joggers for so long!!) but a modesty strip can be a great addition in alteration to add a little more coverage. Our advice would be to chat with your seamstress about adding this but after you have had a bust fully fitted, as once this is done, you may not feel you need it. It is amazing the difference alterations will make to how you feel in the dress.

April is a satin crêpe with a beautiful chiffon overlay, giving her a very romantic, lightweight look. And this is reinforced with the addition of the chiffon flutter sleeve, perfect for covering the top of the arm, a common problem area for us girls. If the sleeves aren’t your thing, April can also come without the chiffon sleeves, leaving you with a thick shoulder strap, which is just as stunning


The satin belt is great at drawing you in at the waist, this is also a great place to add a little bit of detail with a belt, allowing you to put your own stamp on her, whether that be with sparkle, lace, pearls or even a colour.


Last but not least, the back! April is a zip back with covered buttons to conceal the zip drawing the eye down to the gorgeous shaping around the hips which is enhanced with the seam detail running just under the bum. All finished off with a stunning chiffon train - perfect for those over the shoulder shots! You know the ones!
