There are so many things you should take in mind when buying dress for your bridesmaids, from the fabrics to the styles. As we all know, there are no one style which can fit everyone’s need. Here are some classic styles, read on and hope these would help you.
A classic sheath bridesmaid dress can actually flatter a wide variety of shapes. You might not think it, but sometimes the best solution to finding something that flatters everyone is a dress that is more streamlined. The secret to the power of this sheath dress above is it’s just below the knee hemline. For most women, this is the narrowest party of their leg and the dress will actually make their gams appear longer. Of course, the tallest and most petite bridesmaids may have to tailor a bit to find the ideal length for them.
If you want the same dress on every bridesmaid, an a-line silhouette is likely your safest bet. Although an a-line silhouette certainly isn’t the most modern option in the world, it’s a classic for a reason. Pretty much everyone looks awesome in it. The only body type that might struggle a bit with this dress are apple shapes, but that can usually be addressed with good tailoring or finding an a-line that has a slightly higher waist.
Structure is a girl’s best friend. Flimsy, gauzy fabric and relaxed styling doesn’t flatter most shapes. Instead find a dress with sturdier fabric and plenty of internal structure. This navy dress above would work well on both athletic and curvier, hourglass bodies because of how the bodice is designed. Slimmer figures will look lovely and bustier pals will have the benefit of an accentuated waist to avoid making them look frumpy.
Black bridesmaid dress isn’t the only slimming color. There’s a reason why a LBD is such a wardrobe staple. It’s usually adaptable to a variety of settings and is the most flattering item in your closet. But it’s not only flattering because it’s black, it is slimming because it is all one color. A monochromatic statement is lengthening and streamlines your figure no matter what the shade. Although, when finding a monochromatic gown, look for ones where the fabric is matte, rather than shiny or iridescent.
Separates can be an easy way to find the perfect fit. Not only are separates modern and cool, they can also help take the difficulty out of finding a dress that fits everyone perfectly. After all, how many of us are actually the same size for tops and skirts? By wearing separates, your bridesmaids will be able to find something that fits them well. And if there is one thing that flatters more than anything else, it’s the correct fit.
