About SheerBride

Sales 6
On Etsy since 2020

Effortless, romantic and modern wedding gowns at an attainable price point.

After a stressful and disappointing wedding dress shopping experience, Swedish-British designer Jo Malin finally resorted to sew her own wedding gown, a slightly bohemian yet modern french lace mermaid dress.

The experience and newly found passion spurred her into designing and creating gowns for other women who were also not content with the awkward procedure of conventional bridal salons, stiff and sweaty fabrics, predictability -and overwhelming cost- of traditional gowns.

Sheer Bride was launched 2017 as a wedding blog and has since expanded with the creation of our own line of dresses. It is with great excitement we share it here with you on Etsy.

    Bridal fashion is a passion for Jo who weaves her sculpturist background into the gowns: a work of art in which you as a bride are the canvas. The distinct fit in our gowns is provided by the meticulous construction where no detail has been spared.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

If you want to personalize your dress, we can help you with the following:
- raising or lowering a neckline
- closing the back
- shortening or lengthening train or hem
- adding sleeves
-change of colour, if fabric can be sourced

*surcharges may be applied if extra fabric or new pattern making is required*

*we can’t design a dress from scratch (your design) from the Etsy shop. This service is however available to local brides who can visit our Cape Town studio*

Regrettably no refunds or exchanges are available on custom gowns and sizes.

Sizing details

We offer standard US sizing 2-22, and custom sizing within this range.
To make a gown according to your personal measurements, select the Custom size option, then send us a message with your body measurements. We will instruct you how to, but recommend that you visit professional tailor for accuracy.
Please allow for up to 0.5 inch differences due to fabric variations and bodily changes. For the ultimate fit we recommend a final fitting with a dress maker.

Sizes above US 22 are available at an additional cost of 50 - 120 USD depending on extra fabric requirements.

*please note we regrettably cannot offer returns or exchanges on custom size gowns, or sizes outside our specified range*

Care instructions

All our gowns are made with delicate materials and fine fabrics such as silk, satin and chiffons.
Should a stain occur before the wedding day, a diluted stain remover and lukewarm water should do the trick.
Do not iron the dress. A gentle steam will erase any creases, or just let it hang a while.
Stains on the wedding day may be temporarily covered with chalk.

Handle your gown with care and always store in a dress bag in a dry, dark place.

Professional cleaning is standard to preserve the gown after the wedding. Remember to only use a reputable dry cleaner.
Unless the dress is heavily soiled, you might find that dry clean is unnecessary. This will preserve the fabrics longevity.
A spot cleaning and good airing might be sufficient.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your gown will come packaged neatly in a beautiful box. We do not recommend to buy a wedding dress as a gift, but we can provide you with a gift card for this purchase.

If you purchase an accessory for someone, you may request gift packaging in the options when you check out. A small surcharge may be added depending on the size of the item.
