Watermelon Bridesmaid Dress and Body Shapes
Whatever body shape you have, the trick is to find styles that flatter. If the bride allows it, you can wear whatever style of watermelon bridesmaid dress that you want. However, there are dress styles and cuts that can make certain figures look better and fabulous.
All women want to be tall and/or slim. However, sometimes being too tall or too thin can be a disadvantage especially if you wear a dress that would make you looked like a basketball player or a pole. A watermelon bridesmaid dress with ruffles and details around the waist will flatter your straight frame. Larger accessories and colored belts will also create warm layers as well as princess, bias and double breasted cuts.
Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez knows how to balance her wide hips with a bodice and skirts that are either slightly flared or straight. If you have wide hips, choose a watermelon bridesmaid dress style that focuses somewhere at your middle hip and not above it.
Draw the eyes away from your midsection and make your hips look smaller by using belts and choosing high waist or A-line skirts. You can also draw the attention to your upper body by wearing a watermelon bridesmaid dress with large sleeves, collars and lapels. Whatever style you choose, pick a design that will draw attention away from your hips.
Do you have broad shoulders, small chest and muscular arms? Then choose details that will add feminine lines and soften your muscular figure with puffy sleeves, laced tops, halter tops or wraps. The goal is to draw the attention to your slender waist. Fabrics that are soft and have natural flow will add a classy and refined line to create a feminine look. A bias cut is also perfect for giving the illusion of curves as well as a flare skirt to flatter a boyish shape.
A body shape with thick waist tends to be straight instead of curved. Choose loose tops for your watermelon bridesmaid dress. The style will bypass your waistline and fall straight down to your hips. Hide that extra weight in your midsection with deep V or scoop necklines or pleats that gathers under the bust to shift the attention vertically down to the stomach.
Additionally, a watermelon bridesmaid dress with an empire waist is a good style for drawing the eyes to your upper body and away from your waist. Accent your watermelon bridesmaid dress with black edges to visually skim inches off from your waistline.
Do you have plump thighs? Fret not as you can flatter them with pleated or flair skirts. Aim to hide the bulges by slimming your appearance. Try a vertical pattern on the bottom half or even in the seaming of your watermelon bridesmaid dress. You may also opt to wear big lapels or collars, color and accessories on the neckline to help widen the shoulders to give you a proportion look. You might also try small shoulder pads to balance a wider bottom.
A flattering neckline will do wonders for a very chesty bridesmaid. You can make your bust look smaller by wearing downward lines across the bodice. The loose and long length design of the tunic style watermelon bridesmaid dress will balance out your whole figure.
Meanwhile, a plump or petite body shape can be transformed into a taller and slimmer silhouette by a watermelon bridesmaid dress with vertical seaming or a princess cut without belt. Avoid anything that would cut your figure as well as the length of your body such as wearing big belts. If you have to wear a belt, choose a thin one that is the same color as your watermelon bridesmaid dress.
