When you start looking it can be hard to find bridesmaid dresses that flatter all figures. I’m sure that not all of your bridesmaids have a similar figure, skin tone and hair colour, so choosing a dress that will flatter then all can be quite tricky.
I’m lucky in the fact that I’m only having one bridesmaid, my niece, so I don’t have to worry about choosing bridesmaid dresses that will flatter a range of people. But as I was looking at dresses for her, I did think about how hard it is for a bride to be able to please all of their bridesmaids. I love the current trend of having bridesmaids in the same colour but different styles of dress so that they can all choose something they like, but a lot of brides would like to have their maids in matching dresses.
I’ve pulled together five different styles of bridesmaid dresses that I think would flatter a whole host of figures. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration when trying to please all of the girls!
I love these Twobirds dresses made from soft tulle layered over classic Jersey. Tulle is always flattering and I think the cut of these dresses will not only skim all the wobbly bits but also offer a soft, romantic look and feel. There endless way to wrap a Twobirds dress, so it can be worn time and time again and look like a different dress, plus your maids can choose which way they would like it tied.
This dress by MoriLee is perfect for maids who would like a little more coverage. The lace jacket at the top attracts the eye to that area and the chiffon skirt, cut on an a-line, will skin over hips and tummies. The jacket is removable making this a very versatile dress that is bang on trend.
This Lori Lee dress from Coast is a perfect choice for bridesmaids. It has a sheer bodice lined with a soft slip and the waist is cinched with a lustrous waist tie embellished with faux gems. The back of the dress features a graceful keyhole detail. The gathering at the front of the dress and the lightweight material will flatter may shapes. This dress is available in long and short options, there is also an option with a lace top and different colour options.
This classic, strapless, full length After Six bridesmaid dress by Dessy is made from beautifully soft chiffon. It’s sweetheart neckline and wrap pleat detail at front along with it’s empire waist make this dress perfect for all shapes and sizes. This dress will look stunning on anyone whether size 2 or 22. If anyone is conscious of their arms or worried about the cold, you could easily add a chiffon wrap.
I adore this elegant dress from Kelsey Rose. Not only is it chic, but with the v-neck and strong pleating in the skirt it will flatter all waistlines. This dress is perfect for girls looking to elongate their legs or cinch in their waste. Because of the straps, it also means bustier bridesmaids can still have support.
Have you found you bridesmaid dresses yet? I’d love to hear what you have chosen.
