Pewter Bridesmaid Dress and Body Shapes

If you have settled on the color pewter for your bridesmaid dresses, it is time to think about the style and design. This could be easy if your bridal party has similar body type. But how about if some of them are curvy while others have wide shoulders and a broad chest?

You may decide to give them a free hand to choose their preferred style and design. Its best for you to give your bridesmaids some guidelines in order help them determine the appropriate style for their body type.

A woman with a pear body shape has hips that is wider than her shoulder, rounded bottom and well-defined waist. Think about the figures of celebrities Kim Kardashian, Katherine Heigl and Eva Mendes. A bridesmaid dress ideal for this shape should have hemlines that slim the thighs and hips and a neckline that accentuate the waist and shoulder.

Some of the styles to try are A-line skirts, strapless and ruffles on top. Cowl, neck tops and square necklines will also do the trick. Additionally, recommend to your bridesmaid to wear pointy-toed shoes to elongate her legs.

A wedge body shape looks like an inverted triangle with wide shoulders and broad chest and narrow waist and hips. Celebrities Demi Moore, Teri Hatcher and Naomi Campbell possess this body shape.

The trick here is for women to find a style that will accentuate their lower body while draw attention away from their upper body. They may wear bottoms in deep gray color, wide-leg pants or full skirts.

Actresses Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz have rectangle body type with similar waist, hip and shoulder widths. A bridesmaid with rectangle body shape can wear a scoop neck or sweetheart neckline to add some curves orĀ  collars and ruffles to flatter her chest.

Drew Barrymore, Eva Longoria and Jennifer Hudson are some celebrities who have apple body shape. This body type has narrow hips but broad back, ribs and shoulders. The goal is to lengthen the body by wearing dresses with necklines that elongate the figure. An empire or A-line hem should be a staple for women with apple body shape.

Tiny waist and shoulders and hips that are similar in proportion are the major traits of an hourglass body. Take a look at the curves of celebrities Salma Hayek, Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson. Creating a balance on the dress style is a must. Keeping an even proportions for a fuller bust, hips and thighs will be achieved with pewter bridesmaid dresses with sweetheart necklines or V-necks.

Lastly, create a streamlined silhouette by choosing a fabric that is high quality and highlights only the best assets of a bridesmaid.
