#fridayfavourite Is it strapless or sweetheart?
Something that confuses even the most savvy brides is the difference between a strapless and a sweetheart - aren't they both strapless? So technically yes - a gown with no straps is indeed strapless. But a sweetheart has a pronounced rounded top and slopes upwards from the underarm. Much like the top of a heart.
A strapless can be straight across or it can have a small dip. With the gowns with a more pronouced dip it then becomes the designer's discretion whether they call it sweetheart or strapless.
The Maggie Sottero Madge is straight across at the top a pure strapless.
This Christina Rossie gown has a bit more of a dip. So still strapless but not straight across.
This Marys Bridal gown is the perfect example of where it is a grey area. Sweetheart or strapless - you decide.
The Bonny 606 is unquestionably sweetheart. It has a pronounced dip and the bodice slopes up from the sides.
Don't worry too much about the definitions - just work out which one looks the most flattering on you by trying the options on.
