Bridesmaid Dressing by Body Type!

by | Jun 14, 2021 | Bridesmaid

Being asked to be a bridesmaid is definitely an honor! And when you’re front and center—from gliding down the aisle to heating up the dance floor—you’ll want to wear a gorgeous gown that will make you feel fabulous. With endless styles to choose from, we’re breaking down which dress is the most flattering one for your type of figure!

Petite: If you are a smaller sized bridesmaid, a sheath gown may be just what you’re looking for! The snug, column-like style will help to elongate your figure, giving the illusion of a few extra inches! Consider looking for lace, a sweetheart neckline and ultra-romantic off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Curvy: If you are “fuller figured,” embrace your gorgeous curves with a fit and flare gown. Nipping in at the waist then flaring out the knee, this is the perfect silhouette to enhance your curves! If you’re looking for something less fitted, there’s also the universally flattering A-line! Snug down to the waist and then softly flowing out into an “A” shape, this style is an effortless choice. For arm coverage, whimsical flutter sleeves would be a top pick. 

Athletic: If you are muscular or very fit, highlight your body and definition with a slip dress! This sleek style will let the beauty of your build shine.  Contouring, silky satin fabrics are ultra-chic and will show off your beautifully toned muscles! Athletic figures also look lovely in the ever appealing A-line shaped dress.

Pear: Like the namesake fruit, gals that are wider on the bottom and smaller on top might love a gown that accentuates their top half. Anything that cinches at the waist will do the trick! For a more unconventional style, try a high-halter neck for modesty or an A-line style dress that features a ruched waist detail.
