The crumb catcher bodice is actually made of 2 parts: one lies close to the body, and then a ruffle that usually begins below the bust gives the illusion of a wide open neckline. These dramatic bodices are particularly beautiful on newlyweds with smaller busts, as they create volume, although bustier brides should steer clear of this particular trend. On the runways last week, crumb catchers were represented in nearly every collection and character, from demure to downright outrageous.
