Gowns should perfectly fit the body. But aside from that, it is also important to know the perfect cut of the dress that will flatter the bridesmaid’s best parts.
Believe it or not, bridesmaids are also nervous for the wedding day. They want to make sure that they will also look stunning in the dress that they are going to wear. There are wedding themes that the bridesmaids do not have to wear exactly the same style of dress. The latest wedding couture encourages bridesmaids to wear the same color but of different styles. They should don a number that will flaunt their best parts and hide their not so desirable parts.
Let’s not talk about shapes as they exaggerate the body type of the bridesmaid. Let’s talk about figures instead.
Petite bridesmaids are the ones with small body frames. An A-line cut dress is perfect for this body type. It elongates the body therefore adding height to the bridesmaid. The fabric should only be light in texture. The bride should not consider asking petite bridesmaids to wear ball gowns or heavy fabric as it will only look too much for the wearer. Wearing a ¾ sleeved dress will also help add some inches to the height.
As they say, “Thin is in,” but a bridesmaid dress should not make a girl look like she has not eaten for months. Avoid the exposure of obvious collarbones and instead go with chic shoulder straps over a ball gown type of dress.
You think your body is just fine until you fit a dress and notice your tummy sticking out? Or your waist almost the same width as your hips? You have to know that you will perfectly fit in an empire-cut dress. The cut that does not emphasize the mid section of the body. Pick a strapless neckline to move the eyes away up the torso.
Afraid that you can’t get rid of your full hips until the wedding? Put on an A-line bridesmaid dress with bare shoulders. The cut will hide the unflattering width of the hips and the shoulders will give just enough proportion of the upper and lower torso.
Full-figured bridesmaids should don sexy attire. Yes you read it right. They, too, can look sexy with the right bridesmaid dress. Let them fill in an off-shoulder nipped-in waist dress and they will instantly look like they’ve lost 10 pounds. The slimming effect of strapless or sexy strapped tops will also make them look voluptuous and romantically very daring.
