Proper Choice of Bridesmaid Dress Attire

Bridesmaid Dress Samples

  Not all women are shaped the same and it isn’t likely that your chosen bridesmaids will be the same size.  Even if they did, they’d probably have different features they’d like to hide.  Choosing one bridesmaid dress to look good on all the ladies would be very difficult and wouldn’t put their likes in consideration.     These reasons make choosing a dress seem near impossible.  It is possible to find a dress that everyone will be satisfied with, but it may not be easy.  These tips can help you in your dressing choosing venture.

Assess Body Types

Look at your bridesmaids’ body type closely. Fining a photo of each girl standing alone so you can imagine the dress on her may help. Which of her features (belly, butt, boobs) should be hidden and which should be highlighted?


Black is the best color for slimming and hiding the flaws that make a girl uncomfortable.   Dark colors are better than bright or light colors for hiding flaws.  A dresses color can reveal quite a bit but the cut and style is also a contributor.

The Right Fabric

If you are large or small, some fabrics are unforgiving regardless.  Stay away from spandex, satin, and fitted silk dresses.  Go with a light polyester cotton blend, chiffon silk or rayon blend instead. These will leave more stretch room without pinching or showing off embarrassing features.


Consider what a girl’s arms would look like in a sleeveless dress.  Some women’s are would not be flattered by strapless or sleeveless dresses.  Consider this when looking at various styles of dress.  If you are set on sleeveless and soft of the bridesmaids are uncomfortable, offer a shawl or wrap for them to cover with.


Adding shawl, belts, gloves, and bolero jackets will change the look of a dress and bring unity to the style.  To cover up belly bulk or accent a small waistline, try using a wide ribbon as belts can define a waistline.   Cover unsightly arm flabbiness with a bolero jacket while adding style no matter what arm size.


Bridesmaids don’t need to wear the exact same dress.  It’s common practice to use all the same color dresses, while using a different style to fit each girl.  Having a different neckline, length or form fit may be chosen, but they will all be similar and coordinated.
