When asked what your vision is for your wedding day look, there are so many aesthetics to choose from! Lately, brides have been going after sexy wedding dresses for a showstopping, figure-flattering, glamorous look that turns heads. Keep reading to learn about how to achieve a sexy bridal look and to see some of the True Crew’s favorite sexy wedding gowns for brides! 

What is a Sexy Wedding Dress? 

While that depends on your definition of sexy, everyone’s is different and there are a few key characteristics to look out for! Typically, sexy wedding dresses hug the figure and may show some skin with details like cutouts, a plunging neckline, sheer bodices, off-the-shoulder straps or sleeves or a low back.  

Not loving the idea of showing a lot of skin? Don’t worry! A sexy wedding look isn’t about showing the most. You can balance a low back with a high neckline, combine a plunging neckline with a ballgown skirt for a subtly sexy yet regal look or even wear a figure-hugging sheath gown with a full coverage neckline.  

It’s all about balance! When choosing sexy wedding dresses, keep these tips in mind: 

  • Confidence and feeling comfortable in your gown are always sexy! You can wear the most daring dress, but if you aren’t confident, it will show. Remember, it doesn’t matter if your gown isn’t stereotypically sexy. As long as you feel sexy, that is what counts! 
  • Keep your figure and any undergarments you may want to wear in mind. Details like a low back or deep V-neckline may not be best for supporting a larger bust, especially if your gown has both. Make sure you consider any undergarments you may need to wear and how they will work with your dress. High slits and sheer panels can make it tricky to choose the right pieces to wear.  
  • Don’t forget the rest of your look! When accessorizing, think of pieces that will highlight your best features. For example, a chandelier or drop earring draws attention to the neck, while a necklace highlights the décolletage. 

Sexy Wedding Dresses 

Now that you have the tips and tricks you need to pull off the sexy wedding dress of your dreams, it’s time to share a few of the True Crew’s favorite sexy bridal gowns! 

Sexy Lace Wedding Dress 

Lace is oh-so-bridal but can also be incredibly sexy, as seen on Martina Liana Style 1488. This figure flattering fit-and-flare wedding dress starts with beaded spaghetti straps that meet the sparkling sheer lace bustier bodice. The straight-across neckline and exposed corset boning highlight the figure with their architectural lines while seamlessly meeting the sexy side cutouts of illusion tulle.  

A traditional corset back gets a romantic twist with airy tulle and embroidered lace details. To further accentuate the silhouette, beaded floral lace appliqués adorn the frothy layered skirt, and sparkling tulle underneath adds shimmering dimension to complete this sexy bridal look. For the bride who wants to look extra glam, matching sheer long lace gloves are available to elevate this already incredible gown. 

Sexy Beach Wedding Dress 

Sexy wedding dresses are ideal for balmy beach weddings! Essense of Australia Style D3488 is made for the sun and sand. Vintage glamour and modern luxe style blend effortlessly in this fit-and-flare gown swathed in beautifully beaded scrolling and linear lace that shimmer in the sunlight. 

Elegant and sparkly spaghetti straps frame a flattering deep plunging neckline with illusion tulle. Beautiful beading and fabric-covered buttons are artfully combined with sexy side cutouts that lead to a daring V-shaped open back. From the natural waist, the alluring design concludes in a romantic lace-trimmed scalloped train for a stunning walk down the aisle. 

Sexy Mermaid Wedding Dress 

Mermaid wedding dresses are synonymous with the word sexy, and Martina Liana Luxe Style LE1204 is proof! You’ll make a statement walking down the aisle in this dramatic high-fashion wedding dress. The 3D embellished spaghetti straps meet the appliqué-adorned scoop bodice with subtle corset boning for a touch of sexiness. 

This glamorous gown is worthy of the runway. It features a flared trumpet skirt and train completed with voluminous feathery rows of tulle. A luxurious low scoop back of sheer illusion lace meets a chic row of colored fabric-covered buttons. This is one of the True Crew’s favorite unique sexy dresses! 

Sexy Plus Size Wedding Dress 

One of the True Crew’s favorite sexy plus size wedding dresses is Martina Liana Style 1453. Old Hollywood glamour meets flawless couture craftsmanship in this stunning plus size wedding dress.  

The constructed strapless bodice provides support and an air of effortless elegance with its soft satin pleats, while the detachable off-the-shoulder straps elongate the subtle sweetheart neckline and add a touch of demure sophistication. In luxurious Sandwash Silk Satin and lined with a soft satin lining, this gown glides across the body with its column sheath silhouette and drapes into a sweeping train while feeling like pure opulence across every inch of the skin. 

Sexy Long Sleeve Wedding Dress 

Long sleeves can be sexy! Essense of Australia Style D3636 is a romantic A-line wedding dress draped in soft layers of delicate chiffon. The notched plunging neckline accentuates the soft pleating of the wrapped bodice while adding a touch of sexiness. Detachable off-the-shoulder blouson sleeves add a luxe vibe to this versatile wedding look, which can also be worn strapless. The clean and simple aesthetic is made complete with a dreamy A-line skirt that floats and sways with every movement. Did we mention the sexy side slit and head-turning train? 

How to Make your Wedding Dress Look Sexier? 

To make your dress look even sexier, don’t forget about alterations! Having your gown fit you like a glove goes a long way in making it look better and feel better on your body, which translates to a sexy boost of bridal confidence. If you choose a designer wedding dress by Martina Liana, you may be able to customize your gown to make it even sexier by lowering the back or changing the neckline.  

Another thing to consider is your hair and makeup! A sleek updo allows a showstopping wedding dress back to shine, while Old Hollywood waves bring a sexy touch of red-carpet glamour to a curve-hugging gown. When it comes to your makeup look, a cat eye, subtly smoky eye or a red or dark lip are all sultry choices. If you’re wearing a sleeveless dress, have your makeup artist dust some highlighter on your collarbone and shoulders for a sexy glow!
