Cap Sleeve Wedding Dresses by Mikaella and Paloma Blanca

What is a cap sleeve?

Simply stated, a cap sleeve is a short sleeve. The cut covers the shoulder for coverage but still shows most of your arm. Classic and sophisticated, a cap sleeve wedding gown is ideal for brides looking for an elegant look that spans any bridal style.

Is a cap sleeve right for you?

If you are a bride who is torn between a sleeveless gown and a long sleeve gown, a cap sleeve may just be the answer! It is the perfect compromise and is available in so many gorgeous designs–so whether you are a romantic, traditional, boho, or modern minimalist bride, you can find a short sleeve dress you love.

Did we mention that a cap sleeve gown is also super flattering? Because the sleeve fits snuggly, it gives the illusion of slightly wider shoulders, balancing out your body and giving the illusion of a smaller waist. Plus, they are oh-so comfortable and the available detailing such as lace, beading and sheer looks are endless.

Designers like Paloma Blanca and Mikaella have mastered this look, and we love them all!
