This post is NOT part of my series on weddings in the religious Zionist community.
I took this picture at a local children’s store:
Regular Anonymous mentioned wedding dresses with see-through midriffs, so I found two samples.
And this exchange appeared in the comments section of Winter Fashion Retrospective:
Robin: That’s some cleavage on those bridal gowns – hasn’t anyone told brides that by the time they’re walking down the aisle they’ve already snagged the guy?
Daniel: I think that in Israeli society in general there is confusion between beauty and sexiness. A fully-covered bride can look beautiful as long as she smiles genuinely and her hair isn’t a mess, but when people here think of a bride looking good for her wedding, they automatically assume she should wear something revealing.
