Featured Mother of the Bride/Groom Dress: Alexander by Daymor 1973

Here’s a little sneak peak at the Alexander by Daymor 1973 dress arriving with us in early 2024! It’s hard not to be excited about this illusion scoop neck fit and flare gown with cap sleeves.

The intricate embroidered floral motif is accentuated with hand sewn bugle beads and sequins offering a subtle shimmer without overwhelming. The underlying Chantilly lace and nude lining combine to make this gown interesting but, the absolute unforgettable element to this gown has to be the illusion buttoned back.

Currently being cut in Juniper Blue (shown), Pale Mauve and Navy, this gown defines understated elegance.  

Without fail, almost every time we feature a gown with an illusion back – like the stunning back on Daymor 1973, the concern is “what will I do for a bra”? Fortunately, there are several solutions for this that will provide support without ruining the sight lines of the gowns. Lingerie and foundation wear manufacturers will offer options to get you looking your absolute best – all you need is a little planning ahead to insure your gown accentuates all your assets.

One solution is a one piece backless bodysuit.

This provides bust support while slimming potential problem areas. Another solution for wearing an incredible sheer back is adhesive bra cups. There are so many options out there designed specifically to enable wearing special occasion gowns with style and ease. We advise experimenting with any potential foundation wear or adhesives prior to your gown fitting to ensure you are comfortable and supported throughout your special day. Nothing is more aggravating that having a wardrobe malfunction on your big day!

Another question that inevitably pops up when selecting the perfect gown is how to accessorize your gown for your event.

Generally, with a gown that features such a stunning back like Alexander by Damor 1973, we would advise wearing your hair up so that the back isn’t obscured in those candid photos. A loose chignon is always an elegant choice that also opens the door for unique hair accessories to be worn like this delicate hair jewelry that can be woven into your updo to add that elegant finishing touch.
