Long Gothic Dress
Hardly any other piece of clothing looks as elegant and impressive as a floor-length black gothic dress! It is often worn for special occasions such as weddings, all kinds of balls, graduation ceremonies or visits to the opera. The long gothic dress differs from other floor-length dresses in that it is made of special fabrics such as lace, brocade, net inserts or semi-transparent material. Nevertheless, each model is unique and there is something for every gothic look. We are constantly expanding our assortment and provide you with the latest collections of our top brands, such as Killstar, Banned and Sinister. We get the following questions from our customers again and again. Our answers give you very valuable tips and tricks and make it easier for you to buy your long gothic dress. Because we want you to be 100% satisfied and happy with what you buy or order from us.
How Do I Find the Perfect Long Gothic Dress for Me?
As is often the case, the first question is whether you want to accentuate your feminine curves or conceal certain areas. If you attach great importance to the "feel-good effect", then you should opt for an airy gothic dress. If you still want to emphasise your waist, go for a fitted dress, because it will make you an eye-catcher. Tight-fitting long gothic dresses draw attention to your curves, so they're perfect if you want to emphasise your bottom, stomach and bust. But that doesn't mean you have to wear a size XS to cut a great figure in these dresses. Just a little more in the right places often looks very sexy and feminine. If you want to hide one or two rolls, you can also conceal them a little with the right tights or shapewear. But the material of the long gothic dress also has a big influence on how it looks on you. Shiny materials such as velvet can be a bit bulky, especially if they are very tight. Matt cotton fabrics, especially if the cut is a little wider and airier, make the body look a little slimmer. Nevertheless, it should be said that these tips and tricks cannot be generalised. When choosing your new long gothic dress, it is not only important whether it has a slim or loose cut, but also whether it has a symmetrical or asymmetrical shape and possibly cut-outs. Many of our dresses are not just black and floor-length. That would be boring and not in keeping with the style. After all, a long gothic dress should stand out from the rest of the dresses, shouldn't it? You will find slit gothic dresses, for example from Punk Rave or Heartless. Depending on the dress, some of them are still relatively simple, but the long slit gives them that certain something. You are guaranteed to attract a lot of attention. The opulent dresses in Victorian and romantic style are quite different. There is no longer any question of plain, quite the opposite. The many ruffles, tulle fabric and lace with ornamental patterns make these dresses, such as those by Sinister, very eye-catching but still very elegant. Add a few stylish gothic accessories, elegant gothic platform boots and a discreet gothic jacket and you are the star of the evening.
For Which Occasion Is the Long Gothic Dress Suitable?
And that brings us to the question of the occasion, one that we hear and read again and again. With the aforementioned long gothic dress in Victorian or steam punk style, you'll be completely right for festive occasions or gothic open air festivals. This look is very much like evening wear and would certainly be a bit too much for normal everyday life. If you're looking for something floor-length and down-to-earth, try a long gothic dress that isn't too slashed and comes with fewer embellishments like ruffles, lace and tulle. As mentioned above, we are constantly expanding our range and getting new stock and manufacturers. So there is always something for every occasion and every gothic type. If you are planning to go to a concert or to an exhibition or vernissage, then this is exactly the right thing for you. In combination with a chic gothic bolero, a matching gothic handbag and beautiful gothic boots, your style will be perfect! Speaking of gothic shoes. With floor-length gothic dresses you should always make sure that the shoes are not too flat, otherwise your dress might drag on the floor, which is desirable with some cuts, but not with all. Since you want to get something out of your gothic dress for a long time, you should of course avoid this. In addition, platform shoes look great in combination with a dress like this. We often recommend to our customers that they wear a hoop skirt under the dress. This usually enhances the romantic and festive character even more.
