Wedding Solutions: Bridesmaid Dresses Fit For Any Figures!

Bridesmaid Dresses That Suit Any Figure

By Adrian Leighton
Bridesmaids will be different shapes and sizes
Your bridesmaids probably aren't all the same shape, size or even age! So this makes choosing bridesmaid dresses difficult at times as it's hard to say which style could suit all of the girls. In fact there are a few options open to you that will help you to avoid bridesmaid size related issues, so lets have a look:

Do All Purpose Bridesmaid Dresses Even Exist? A-line Could Be It!

Wouldn't it be great to be able to choose bridesmaid dresses that suit your girls no matter their shape? This may actually be possible if you choose A-line bridesmaid dresses. A-line dresses are probably the closest you're going to get to the 'all purpose' dress, as they pinch in at the waist and flare out over tummies and hips (like a capital A). Here's a typical A-line bridesmaid dress:

Dark Colors Are Always Flattering

Everyone knows that black is flattering, right? Of course black bridesmaid dresses probably aren't a great choice for a wedding, but there are lots of other dark colors like purple, or dark blues that will have a similar slimmin effect. Here is a darker bridesmaid dress that is still appropriate for a wedding:

Straps Could Be A Great Help

There's a modern trend that bridesmaid dresses need to be strapless to be stylish. Perhaps this thinking comes from the idea that straps are somehow old-fashioned or frumpy. But for bigger girls wider straps or capped sleeves will be a great look and help them feel more confident with the aditional support and coverage that they provide. They also look good as you can see with this dress:

Substantial Fabrics Provide Good Support & Coverage

Unless you have a model figure there's a good chance that you will appreciate your bridesmaid dress helping you out by giving you a good shape. Very light-weight fabrics like chiffon won't hide any problem areas and may hug them, but a thicker fabric like satin or tulle will keep a dresses' shape and therefore define your own silhouette better. A good example would be this satin dress:
Spaghetti Straps Empire Sashes/ Ribbons Sleeveless Bridesmaid Dresses, Style Code: 01526, US$59.00 Spaghetti Straps Empire Sashes/ Ribbons Sleeveless Bridesmaid Dresses, Style Code: 01526, US$59.00  

Different Styles, But Same Colors?

If you can't find one particular style that suits each of the girls, you may be able to choose different styles but keep them all in one color. In this way you can choose bridesmaid dresses that suit each wearer's shape, but keep the overall effect given by one color.   here the bridesmaids are wearing different styles but the same color   What's your idea about bridesmaid dresses?

Re-Wearable Bridesmaid Dresses: The Perfect Gift

Bridesmaid Dresses That Can Be Worn Over And Over Again

If your friend's a bride then soon you could be given bridesmaid dresses to wear at your friend's wedding. The choice usually falls to the bride, but if you're lucky then you may have a say too. Wouldn't it be great though if your bridesmaid dress was able to be worn again in the future, perhaps as a party dress? I think the problem that occurs is that the bride is concerned about her color scheme and if the bridesmaid dresses fit into her overall idea of how her wedding should look like. Therefore bridesmaid dresses can often be unusual colors, floor-length (never the most practical length) and in formal styles rather than modern cuts.

Lovely, but would you wear it to a birthday party?

 

Advice For Brides Choosing Bridesmaid Dresses

So if you're a bride and you want to choose dresses that your girls will love wearing forever then perhaps you can follow these tips:
  • Avoid unusual color combinations. You may have an avocado and purple theme in mind for your wedding, but bridesmaid dresses in these colors may be a bit difficult to wear in future! A plain color like black, navy blue, purple etc would be better.
  • Choose a short skirt. Long skirts are quite formal and aren't really appropriate for many more casual occasions like parties.
 
  • Pick a timeless style. Something simple without tons of decoration, rhinestones and other eye-catching elements will mean that the dress has a much longer 'sell-by-date' than if it is very trendy. Just go with a pretty plain A-Line dress for instance. After all, do you really wear that stylish dress you bought in the 90s anymore?
