Often times, the choice of a dress is determined by the fact that the style and the cut of it is a misfit for your body type. To look at your very best, it is important to know which cuts and styles would enhance your figure. Considering how many bridesmaids make the same mistake, let us help you out in deciding the style that’ll perfectly suit your body shape.

Pear Shape Body – Focus on Your Upper Body

For a bridesmaid who carries a better part of her weight around the thighs and butt has a slimmer and smaller upper body, the tank style or the strapless dress is highly recommended. A-line skirt works like a charm in taking the attention off your thighs and butt, while letting the strapless or tank styled dress flaunting the slimmer part of the body.

You can also pick a dress that can emphasize your waist. Choose the ideal dress that will show off a flattering figure. A top jacket with padded shoulder would give a balanced curved look to your figure.

Hourglass Shaped Body – Show Off Your Curves

Remember that you can use your curves in your favor and flaunt them in a highly classy yet fashionable way. A strapped gown or a dress with cap sleeves is going to be your best choice since they cinch at the waist presenting a fine hourglass shape.

When nature gives you curves, slim fit dresses, either long or short will help you enhance your figure. All silhouettes are a good fit for the curvy shaped body, but trumpet and mermaid silhouettes will be the best to show off your curves. They hug each curve creating a sexy and ultra-feminine look.

Apple Shaped Body – Emphasize Your Assets

Your best assets are your bust area and slender legs. Wear a gorgeous dress with a V-neckline or a plunging neckline to emphasize your bust area. A statement necklace can also boost the look when you choose a dress with the mentioned necklines.

And, if you are having issues with your waist area, an A-line bridesmaid dress or an empire dress is perfectly appropriate. Consider a front slit that can also highlight your leggy look. If you’d like to emphasize your slim legs, choose a sheath bridesmaid dress.

Rectangle Shaped Body – Avoid Figure-Hugging Dresses

Do not wear curve-hugging dresses as this will show the lack of curves; instead, emphasize the waist with a striking sash, wide belt, or any other embellishments. Wear an A-line bridesmaid dress as this silhouette naturally defines the waist.

As the rectangular shape is also known as a straight body, you might as well use bra pads and/or shoulder pads to create some curvy shape. You can also choose a dress with ruffle embellishments on the bodice to enhance your look.


For the Bride

Having more than one bridesmaids would mean to say you’ll have to find a style that would elevate the looks of each of them. A-line silhouette will be the most appropriate if you are looking for uniformity. It flatters all body shapes; hence, not a problem whether your bridesmaids have different figures.

And, royal blue will be one of the best, which also radiates royalty and luxury. It is also a color that’s perfect for all seasons as it is not so dark and not to light.

For the Bridesmaids

Finding the perfect bridesmaid dress may be time-consuming, especially if the bride has given you the freedom to look for your own dress; and, the only hint you have is the color. With the only hint you have, look for a dress that is amazingly versatile – a dress that can also be worn for other special occasions.
