      We introduce you to the most common types of sleeves here.

      Cap sleeves

      Cap sleeves are a special type of sleeve found on wedding dresses, evening dresses, and other formal or celebratory garments. The term is derived from the shape of the sleeves, which are reminiscent of the shape of a cap or hat. Cap sleeves are short, straight-cut sleeves that cover the shoulders and only extend slightly past the upper arms. They are usually quite narrow, often only reaching the point where the shoulder meets the upper arm. They are particularly suitable for narrow and slim arms, but also for broad shoulders.

      They are a popular choice among brides who want some arm coverage but still prefer a breezy and romantic option. Often decorated with embellishments such as beads, sequins or embroidery, they give the dress additional shine and detail. Cap sleeves fit well on almost all body types and can help make narrow shoulders appear wider.

      Short sleeves

      Short sleeves can be of different lengths, usually reaching around the middle of the upper arms. They give the dress a timeless touch and can be designed in a variety of ways depending on the fabric and lace. Short-sleeved wedding dresses also emphasize the shoulders and draw attention to the upper third of the body. Ideal for a wedding in warm temperatures in spring or summer.

      These sleeves reach approximately to the middle of the forearms and really suit every bride in all clothing sizes. Three-quarter length sleeves emphasize the forearms and wrists and can draw focus to the waist. They create a tidy, classic look, but without looking old-fashioned or stuffy. Wedding dresses with three-quarter length sleeves are particularly popular for registry office weddings or more formal ceremonies.

      Long sleeves

      Long sleeves are great for weddings in cooler seasons or for brides who want a more elegant, understated look. They can be made of lace, satin, or other materials and vary in styles from fitted to flared. At noni they are often used with decorative hems in a bow shape or frayed as an extra eye-catcher.

      Puff sleeves

      Puff sleeves are a special type of sleeve that is voluminous in the shoulders and upper arms and then fits more tightly at the forearm or wrist. The sleeves are reminiscent of puffy or balloon-like shapes and give the garment a romantic or playful touch.

      Puff sleeves can be found on dresses, blouses and tops and are often made from light, flowing material such as chiffon or lace. They are an eye-catching and playful option and can add a touch of drama and elegance to an outfit. However, depending on the design, puff sleeves can also have a retro-inspired look. The choice depends on personal preferences and the desired style of garment.

      Sleeveless wedding dresses

      A sleeveless wedding dress has no sleeves and exposes the bride's shoulders and arms. This style is particularly popular for summer weddings or for brides who want to emphasize their arms.

      Wedding dresses without sleeves fit well with different body types, emphasize the shoulders and décolleté and can make the arms appear longer. Off-the-shoulder wedding dresses with no sleeves can distract the eye from wider hips.

      How do I find the right wedding dress with sleeves for my wedding?

      When choosing the right sleeves for the look you want in a wedding dress, there are several important considerations you should take into account:

      Personal style: Your personal style is crucial. Think about what look you want to present on your wedding day. Do you want a classic, romantic, modern, vintage-inspired or boho-chic wedding dress?

      Season and Weather: The climate and season of your wedding are crucial. For a summer wedding, sleeveless or short-sleeved dresses are ideal, while for a winter wedding, long sleeves or even sleeves made from warmer materials can be considered.

      Body proportions: Consider your body proportions. Some sleeve styles can emphasize or balance certain areas of the body. For example, long sleeves can create visually longer arms, while short sleeves draw attention to the shoulders.

      Neckline and décolleté: The neckline of your wedding dress should harmonize with the sleeve style. For example, a deep V-neck can be paired well with a strapless dress or off-the-shoulder sleeves, while a high-neck dress can look good with long or three-quarter length lace sleeves.

      Overall look of the dress: Think about how the sleeves contribute to the overall look of the dress. Sleeves can make the dress look elegant, playful, dramatic or simple. Make sure the sleeve style complements the desired vibe and mood of the wedding dress.

      Freedom of movement: Comfort and freedom of movement are extremely important on the wedding day, after all, you will be spending several hours in your wedding dress. Some sleeve styles can restrict movement of the arms, which can be inconvenient during dancing and celebrations.

      Details and Embellishments: Consider whether you want any special embellishments or details on the sleeves. Lace, pearl appliqués, sequins or embroidery can give the sleeves additional charm and serve as glamorous eye-catchers.

      Wedding Occasion: For a formal church or ballroom wedding, long, elegant sleeves may be appropriate, while for a more informal beach wedding, short or sleeveless dresses may be more appropriate.

      Most importantly, the wedding dress sleeves not only suit your aesthetic taste, but also provide comfort and confidence so you can feel great at your wedding.
