Types Of Sleeves In Wedding Dresses

Long Sleeves

From the name, these are sleeves that reach all the way to the wrists. In some cases the sleeves extend past the wrists. If you have marks or you aren’t proud of certain parts of your arm, you should go for a long sleeved dress.

There are many designs that will give you an elegant look. For example, there are some formal outfits that come with sleeves that cover even the back of the hand. There are also other long sleeves that come with buttons that aid in making the sleeves narrow and easy to wear.

Flutter Sleeves

They are also known as butterfly sleeves. They are characterized by a fabric that has been attached to the shoulders of the gown and falls loosely over the arms. These sleeves can be as short as caps or be as long as three quarter sleeves. Regardless of the length, they are all made of a light, floaty fabric such as chiffon. This is to enable them to easily move and ripple even when there’s a slight breeze.

Bell Sleeves

They are elbow or three-quarter in length and are often fitted near the shoulder but widen at the bottom edge. It’s common to find some designs that achieve the bell effect by attaching a long ruffle to a fitted elbow-length sleeve.

Puffed Sleeve

It features a gathered fabric that has been pushed into a voluminous shape. There are many variations of this theme which includes: short, bishop, and Leg o’.
