For the tasteful boudoir bride

Whether you are into the super sheer illusion dress trend or you're searching for sweet and ultrafeminine lace details, lingerie-inspired wedding dresses come in a range of gorgeous styles. Just like in the boudoir, you want to feel your best and most confident when you walk down the aisle, so why not incorporate some of your favorite lingerie details into your wedding dress?

Dresses with built-in bustiers have always been around, but now designers are opting to showcase the bustier on the outside of the gown with beautiful boning detail and optional sheer panels. If you're looking for something sultry and slinky, the slip dress is back in a big way, with tons of variations meant to flatter any figure. If you're feeling bold, try a style with a super sheer skirt over a bodysuit that is meant to be seen. Not into wearing a dress at all or searching for a second look? Try pairing a silky lace cami with structured pants for an elegant and effortless look. Another fun new trend, either for the main event or the after-party, is the wrap dress, which is meant to emulate an elevated beautiful silk or lace robe. Of course, if you're wanting to show some cleavage, there are ample choices when it comes to necklines, from a subtle dip to the plunging deep V.

While you scroll through the dresses below, keep in mind that there are many degrees of sheer and designers and boutiques are always willing to line nearly nude paneling or add a slip to make sure you feel completely secure. So check out the best sweet and sexy dresses below and let your intimates inspire you!
