Chocolate Bridesmaid Dresses Fits all Body Shapes
It can be challenging for brides to find chocolate bridesmaid dresses that will fit all the body types of her bridesmaids. This is the reason why mixing and matching bridesmaid dresses has become popular. It is helpful for brides to know some of the neutral chocolate bridesmaid dresses and how each shade will look on bridesmaids with different body types.
If the bridesmaids hips and waists are relatively the same size and her waist is not defined, then it is likely that she has a straight body similar to actress Cameron Diaz. Look for a chocolate bridesmaid dress with a defined waist. Some women with a straight body type look good in a dress with an empire waist while others may choose an outfit that adds some curves.
A bridesmaid with an apple body type has ribcage and waist that are wider than her hips and shoulders. If her body type is similar to singer Adele, then she has an apple shaped body. An Empire cut and wrap chocolate bridesmaid dress would flatter her figure. A bridesmaid that has extra weight around the waist or hips, will prefer the wrap style or empire cut will create an illusion of curves.
A bridesmaid has an inverted triangle body if her bust is her prominent feature just like actress Pamela Anderson. An A-line chocolate bridesmaid dress would flatter her body shape or choose a style with voluminous skirt. The sleeveless top or a dress with a sweetheart neckline will show off her shoulders.
The bridesmaid that feels her butt is one of her prominent assets, most probably has a pear shaped body. An example of the pear shaped body type include, shoulders are slender, muscular hips and thighs similar to celebrities Kim Kardashian and Beyonce. The pear shaped bridesmaid looks her best in a maxi wrap chocolate bridesmaid dress with transparent neckline.
Additionally, celebrities like Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johansson have hourglass shaped bodies. Their shoulders and hips are almost the same size and they have a very defined waist. If a bridesmaid thinks she has an hourglass body, she can flaunt it by choosing a body hugging chocolate bridesmaid dress. A structured silhouette with V-neckline or sweetheart neckline would flatter an hourglass figure. However, if she is not comfortable wearing a tight fit dress and wants a loose one, she can choose an outfit with a tight bodice.
