Astounding mirror dress Instagram videos. Because these bling dresses are maximum bling couture.
It wasn’t so long ago that bling on a dress depended on how many sequins it had.
In fact, rhinestones were pretty much the ultimate in bling for decades.
And then mirror dresses and gowns came along.
Mirror dress fashion is not made with pieces of real mirror.
Real mirrors are too brittle and have sharp edges.
Plus they would be way too heavy to cover a whole dress in.
These mirror pieces are actually made of shiny acrylic.
Basically a glittery type of plastic.
Sometimes they are attached to the dress base using fabric glue.
But more often tiny holes are drilled into the corners or edges of the acrylic pieces.
These holes let skilled seamstresses sew the acrylic pieces to the dress using thread.
And that means mirror dresses and gowns are not only very glittery but also very durable.
Here at the SequinQueen Sparkling Life Magazine that’s what we’re all about.
Anything very glittery.
Which is why it’s such a bonus that acrylic mirrors are no longer only on dresses.
You’ll find them sparkling on festival costumes.
Men’s suit coats.
But whatever acrylic mirrors end up on they give maximum sparkle to.
Their bling surface area is larger than even paillette sequins.
And enormous compared to tiny rhinestones.
So scroll through the astounding mirror dresses on Instagram the hard working SequinQueen Glitterists have curated.
You’ll be as blown away as we are!
