A sweetheart neckline dress is the ultimate bridal look. This flattering and timeless style has an eternal appeal that really does work for every figure. Savvy brides also know that the distinctive shape accentuates the décolletage, giving you beautiful curves!

Sweets for my sweet

A sweetheart neckline dress is low at the front and shaped like the top of a heart, hence the name, but this romantic style offers so much more. As well as enhancing or creating the illusion of curves, the attractive bodice shape also lengthens the neck, frames the shoulders and even helps to add balance to the overall silhouette. We’re in love!

It’s a look that can be demure or daring too, depending on the style you choose. You can also wear it strapless, with spaghetti straps or even add a delicate jacket or bolero for a little more coverage. Below we’ve picked three of our favourite sweetheart styles, along with gorgeous accessory ideas, to get you started…

Full of flare

Beautiful Marlow is a sweetheart neckline dress with a fabulous fit and flare skirt and oodles of stunning lace. It’s also scattered with sparkling sequins for that all-important touch of shimmer!

Flattering and romantic

It comes in both ivory and the softest blush, and the bodice demonstrates perfectly how great this feminine neckline is for different bust sizes. This design also includes delicate illusion straps for extra support.

Exquisite detail

The back detailing is just exceptional. The stunning illusion panels create a unique keyhole shape and offer extra support, all while looking super pretty. The attractive skirt also features chic ruching and fits snuggly around the hips to give you show-stopping curves.

And that’s not all…

The breathtaking skirt showcases a new style of train, inspired by this season’s bridal catwalks. When the skirt trails behind you, as you walk up that aisle, the lace appliqués will fan out to resemble the petals of a flower. It’s just stunning! Wear it with our 190 underskirt for even more wow factor.

Effortless elegance

Contemporary Addison is a strapless sweetheart neckline dress with a gentle scoop rather than a plunge, for brides who prefer a little more coverage.

A touch of sparkle

The stylish chiffon pleats on the bodice are oh-so flattering and also draw the eyes towards the delicate pearls and crystals at the waist.

Change your look

Fancy something a little different? Try styling Addison with our beautiful lace straps, which are the perfect addition to this strapless delight. Alternatively, our high neck, vintage lace jacket gives the dress a whole new look. Why not wear it in the day then reveal your sexy, strapless look for the evening?

A refined choice

At the back this design is all about simple chic, which is why it works so well with a more detailed lace jacket.

Light as a feather

The slim A-line skirt has an understated Grecian feel that’s ideal for the beach or an overseas wedding somewhere warm. The silhouette also fits a little closer than a traditional A-line style and flatters most body shapes.

Add some drama

It’s hard to beat a chapel-length veil when you want to add real drama. This contemporary, single-tier style is also finished with sparkling beaded edges, for a little extra glamour.

Here’s how to make an entrance…

Finally, we have Amanie, a brand new sweetheart neckline dress with a wow-factor fishtail skirt. The bodice is also encrusted with gorgeous beds and pearls, so the full effect is absolutely breathtaking!

Total opulence

The opulent bodice features glittering sparkle from every angle and hugs curves like a dream. The neckline here is a classic plunging sweetheart style, that flatters the shoulders and the décolletage perfectly. We love this styled with our glittering Tiffany belt too, it’s a match made in heaven!

Find your style

Alternatively, you can completely change the look of this dress with a pair of our delicate straps. Ideal for a softer daytime look, you can then remove them in the evening to create a more glamorous party feel.

Be my sweetheart

The dramatic fishtail silhouette will also enhance attractive curves and is the ideal choice for brides who want some real wow-factor. For extra oomph wear this with our 189 or 190 underskirt too. Alternatively, if you’d like a similar sweetheart neckline dress why not take a look at Flynn or Quinn, if you're wanting a bit more coverage.
