Everything you need to know about one of our favourite rentals, the ‘Bowery Slip Dress’. From Weddings to Race Days to Balls to Formals and everything in between this is the gown that never disappoints!
Why We Love It
This dress is perfect for so many reasons. Firstly, it is super comfortable and there is a strategic drape over the tummy so you don’t feel exposed or self-conscious of this area as it is so flattering. The cowl neckline is subtle and suits varying bust sizes. The front slip means it works well on lots of heights because it is so easy to walk in and you won’t have to fuss like other floor-sweeping gowns so you can relax and have fun at your event. What really sets the dress above all other slip dresses is the fabric: it has a slight sheen and is thick enough to cover any lumps and bumps so it skims the body without clinging. It is honestly the perfect dress when you need something that is formal, elegant and no-fuss.
Size and Fit
The style runs on the slightly bigger side so if you are tossing up between two sizes we recommend sizing down for a flattering fit. It measures 135cm from shoulder spaghetti strap to bottom of hem.
The slip dress has a sexy low back so you can either go without a bra (this is genuinely an option as it is double lined) or a silicone stick-on bra for seamless support. Any kind of underwear without seams works well and because it isn’t extremely fitted shapewear isn’t required.
Deciding on Colour
We currently stock the bowery slip dress in:
For a classic black-tie look you can’t go past the traditional Black colour and adding a red lip and a soft wave for a more formal look.
If your event is a Summer Wedding, we love the Khaki as pairs well with a golden (faux) tan. Gold accessories also works well with the warm tones and is nice to wear something a little bit different.
The Cold White hue is ideal for an engagement party dress and has been used also as bridesmaids gowns which is perfect for a minimalist look.
How to Style It
The Bowery Slip Dress is minimalist in its design so we recommend keeping within this aesthetic and pair with barely-there thin-strap heels and an elegant drop earring to add a touch of glamour.
