Finding a bridesmaid dress that looks good on every body, shape, and size can be a bit of a challenge, but it’s definitely not impossible! If you’re not sure where to start or worried about finding a style of dress that flatters every one of your girls, we’re here to help. Check out these tips for finding the perfect bridesmaid dresses!

 

Choose a color instead of a dress

One of the best ways you can ensure all your bridesmaids feel comfortable and happy with their dresses is to let go of a little control and let them choose. Just give them a color or even a color palette to choose from and let your girls choose a dress that fits best with their own personal style while still matching the vision you have for your wedding party.

Opt for a universally flattering style

If you want to choose the dresses for your bridesmaids, go for a style that looks great on every body type. An A-line shape accentuates the waist, while a V-neckline can help elongate the neck and ensure that every lady looks fabulous.

Go for a longer sleeve

Strapless dresses aren’t for everyone, but a 3/4 sleeve is a look that flatters all body styles and is an elegant choice for a fall or winter wedding. Just keep in mind, if you’re getting married in the summer, this style may be a little too warm for some of your bridesmaids.

Choose a slimming color

Black isn’t the only color with a slimming effect. Most solid darker colors and jewel tones look great on every body, shape, and size. Plus, they can really give your wedding that elegant feel that looks stunning in photos.

Let bridesmaids mix and match

The uniform wedding party look is a thing of the past. These days, most brides opt for bridesmaid dresses in the same color but different styles. This is a perfect way to give your girls the option to choose a style they love while still sticking with your chosen wedding color palette.

Add some length

A maxi dress is an elegant style that looks great on everyone and keeps you from worrying about finding a gown length that suits every bridesmaid. Plus, maxi dresses come in a wide variety of colors and styles, ensuring that there is something for everyone.

Consider separates

This is a trend more common in prom dresses than bridesmaid dresses, but it’s starting to make its way into all formal wear in general. Separates can give your bridesmaids a more modern look, as well as eliminate some of the difficulty in finding the right dress for every body type.

After all, how many women are actually the same size in tops and skirts? By going with separates, your bridesmaids can be more comfortable in a dress that fits them perfectly.

No matter what you choose, there are a variety of ways to ensure that all of your bridesmaids are comfortable and looking gorgeous as they stand beside you on your wedding day.
