Otherwise known as a stick-thin figure, this body type is free of any major curves. For this bridesmaid, give her body some unique, feminine shape with a ruffled, waist-cinching number. This gives the body some natural curves and keeps the style fun and flirty.
For those women with a pear-shaped body, the hips are one-fourth to one-third larger than the bust. Generally, this body type has narrow shoulders and fuller hips. Draw attention to the upper half of your bridesmaid with heavy detailing on the top of the dress. A one shoulder dress is perfect – the eye-catching strap and neckline draw the eye upward and help to balance out the look.
This is also known as the inverted triangle, and is opposite of the pear-shaped bridesmaid. Her bust is often one-fourth to one-third larger than the hips. For the bustier bridesmaid, you’ll want to show off her features without overly putting them on display (if you know what I mean). A slight v-neckline and a sash at the waist will give her the support she needs up top while simultaneously slimming her waist.
Complement a bridesmaid’s hourglass figure with a halter dress and flared skirt, with detailing or a sash at the waist. It will highlight all the best parts of her body.
While this isn’t necessarily a permanent body shape, there are many pregnant bridesmaids out there. Find a dress with an empire waistline to hit just above the tummy. The cinching at the waist highlights the smallest part of the body and shows off that adorable baby bump.
For her model-esque figure, choose a gown that’s floor-length and flowing to play up your bridesmaid’s slender body.
A curvy middle
For a bridesmaid with a curvy tummy, you’ll want to draw the eye up to the neckline with detailing like ruffles or bows. A curve-hugging pencil skirt in a dark-colored material is perfect for flattering this figure.
