Slate Bridesmaid Dress for Every Size and Shape
The good thing about choosing a slate bridesmaid dress is you will not have any problems picking a style despite the different body types of your bridesmaids. It is important for bridesmaids to feel beautiful in their slate dresses so they may require different styles to flatter or enhance their shapes. You can help your ladies look great in their slate bridesmaid dresses by knowing what dress style would look best on each body shape.
Strapless or tank slate bridesmaid dresses are the ideal choice for those with pear body shape. An A-line style will cinch the waist and cover the thighs and butts in a flattering way. Meanwhile, the tank or narrow straps will draw attention to the décolletage and accentuate the smaller area of the body. It will create a balance proportion to create an hourglass shape.
Bridesmaids with large bust will look good in one shoulder, crossover neckline or scoop neck. The necklines are classic and flattering and will not draw too much attention while the bridesmaids are strutting down the aisle in their slate bridesmaid dresses.
Tall bridesmaids will look gorgeous in a column strapless dress or streamline silhouette with subtle detail. A short dress is also a good choice for tall bridesmaids so you do not have to worry about ordering extra fabric lengths or the hem of the slate bridesmaid dress not being long enough.
V-neck, high neck or strapless slate bridesmaid dresses will flatter a petite frame. Choose a fabric or style that will not overpower the petite frame such as spaghetti strap, lace or mesh. A slate bridesmaid dress with V-neckline and narrow or spaghetti straps will elongate the body. Strapless will also look good on small shapes but avoid drop waist or seams that end at the knees as this will make petite bridesmaids look even shorter.
Emphasize and flatter a curvy body shape in a subtle and classy way with a strapped slate bridesmaid dress with ruching at the waist or a cap sleeve. A bridesmaid dress that does not cut off the body curves will create a classy hourglass shape.
Do you have bridesmaids built like actresses Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson or Jennifer Aniston? Then pick a slate bridesmaid dress that has a ribbon, sash or strapless that cinched at the waist to create a defined waist and curves.
