Rediscover Sexy with Divine Couture

Let’s admit it, ladies. Although it is pretty awesome to wed the man of your dreams, finding the perfect gown and getting married in it is undeniably the part most brides look forward to the most.

Every bride agrees that the perfect gown is one that fits her like a glove, boasts her confidence, beauty and joy, and flaunts only the very best bits of her. But whether that gown is a princess ballgown or a sleek, modern mermaid gown depends on her personality and how she envisions herself on her big day. For me, I’m a girly girl through and through, so I can’t help but fall helplessly in love with gowns that has a gorgeous sweetheart neckline that toes the line between modesty and risqué, a romantic tulle skirt that has just the right amount of fluff, and a dipping low bare-back detail.

And when I think of romantic sweetheart necklines, fluffy skirts and dipping low back details, I think of Divine Couture gowns. Always a fan of their dreamy, fluffy gowns with a flirtatious open or low back, for me, their gowns represent the perfect balance of romance and feminine sensuality. And that perfect balance is something that Kim, owner and designer of Divine Couture, has been fine-tuning and re-inventing over the years since she incorporated low and open back designs into her creations more than a decade ago.

Divine Couture first introduced the first low back wedding and evening gowns in the 1990s because Kim wanted to flaunt her bride’s femininity and sensuality. Her daring creations were a breath of fresh air to the local wedding scene and were a hit for brides who were seeking something other than the more conservative styles of wedding gowns. Kim constantly sought to bring a new kind of sexy to her creations in a tasteful way, like the thigh-high slits and figure-skimming, slinky silhouettes she introduced to her works in 1997.

She also brought sexy to the traditional cheongsam by giving it a bare or illusion back with intricate lace details and a more curvaceous silhouette to flaunt a bride’s womanly curves, making the traditional attire more appealing to and more wearable for younger brides.

Brides who desire a more grown-up and elegant version of a fairy-tale look will not be disappointed in Divine Couture’s Swarovski crystals and custom-designed lace embellished creations, a look that many have come to recognise Divine Couture for, aside from their more sensual creations.
