Would You Wear a Charmeuse Dress?


Charmeuse is a lightweight fabric woven with a satin weave. This luster fabric can instantly give off an air of elegance and can dress up even the simplest of outfits. However, charmeuse has also received a bad rap being that it is too soft to hold a shape. It is often associated with lingerie or drapery blouses, but in fact, it's perfect for evening dress too. Need some ideas? Below I've picked out my favorite charmeuse dresses from DressilyMe.com. Just scroll on down to view them all!

1. Sheath Charmeuse Formal Gown


The beading accents on the bust add elegance to this strapless gown! The form-fitting sweetheart bodice is bordered by a modified empire waistline, while the sexy back falls into a small train.

2. One Shoulder Charmeuse Dress


This curve-hugging dress will leave the crowd breathless at your prom event. A single shoulder strap is topped off by beading ornaments and softly stretches to the back into rhinestones spaghetti straps. The neckline is the glorious start of a sheath silhouette accented by embellishments ending at the flirty slit.

3. Cut-out Charmeuse Dress


All you need to ensure a fabulous night is this gown! Beaded shoulder straps with manmade diamonds and waistband add just the right amount of elegance, and sleek side cutouts let you show a little extra skin. The charmeuse material pours to the floor on the skirt, and the plunging neckline is framed by delicate ruching.

4. Halter Charmeuse Evening Dress


Featuring a halter neckline in fitted bodice, this charmeuse evening dress has beaded halter neck and elegant pleats which make it a perfect choice for any winter formal occasion.

5. Charmeuse Party Dress


The short prom dress features a slightly scoop neckline. It is a good choice for night out.
