After you’ve picked your dress, it’s time to look for the bridesmaid dresses. You want something that everyone is going to love and feel confident in. However, your bridesmaids likely come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Here are 4 tips for finding bridesmaid dresses to compliment different body types.
1. Bring everyone with you when picking
If you bring your bridesmaids with you while looking at possible dresses, you can actually see the dresses on them. This will take away any guessing about how they will look on the girls. They will also have the opportunity to give you their opinion. While you do not need to use their suggestions, they will definitely take a toll on your final decision.
2. Get a dress with ha supportive top
When picking a dress, you need to ensure that the top of the dress is supportive enough for even the most top-heavy person in your wedding party. If you don’t, there could be an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction to no fault of the girl wearing the dress. Make sure your girls can wear a bra and hide it as well. A proper bra will help ensure that there aren’t any issues.
3. Go dark
If your wedding color scheme allows for it, consider going for a darker color. Darker colors have the ability to hide flaws. Try black, navy blue, burgundy, dark gray, and dark purple. Darker colors tend to work better with fall and winter weddings. However, dark purple and navy blue can also work very well in spring and summer weddings. Prints provide a similar effect if you don’t want a solid color dress.
4. Cover the arms
Many women don’t like to show off their arms. Take this into consideration when picking a dress. Strapless or even halter designs can show off undesirable flab. You can pick a dress with 3/4 sleeves that look great on everyone. You can find 3/4 sleeves on dresses of all lengths and styles. You may even be able to work with a tailor to add sleeves to your favorite dress. You can even find options for summer so that no one has to start sweating just to look great.
You aren’t the only one who deserves to look good on your wedding day. You want your bridesmaids to look and feel their best. Good looking, happy bridesmaids will make for better wedding pictures.
