Bridesmaid Gown Style Advice!

It is such an honor to be a bridesmaid!! Standing up with your tribe, your squad, your people! The festivities! The shopping! The dresses!   So, when it’s time to choose gowns for these favorite ladies, we’re here to offer practical fashion styling advice.
There truly are endless styles to choose from, so we’re breaking down which silhouette is actually the most flattering one for a bridesmaid's type of figure.       
Petite: For a smaller sized bridesmaid, a sheath gown may be just what you’re looking for! The snug, column-like style will help to elongate a figure, giving the illusion of a few extra inches! Consider looking for lace, a sweetheart neckline and ultra-romantic off-the-shoulder sleeves.    
Curvy: If she’s “fuller figured,” embrace the curves with a fit and flare gown. Nipping in at the waist then flaring out the knee, this is the perfect silhouette to enhance a shapely body! If you’re looking for something less fitted, there’s also the universally flattering A-line! Snug down to the waist and then softly flowing out into an “A” shape, this style is an effortless choice. For arm coverage, whimsical flutter sleeves would be a top pick. 
Athletic: Muscular or very fit ladies can easily wear a slip dress! This sleek style will let the beauty of a strong body shine.  Contouring, silky satin fabrics are ultra-chic and will show off  toned muscles! Athletic figures also look lovely in the ever appealing A-line shaped dress. 
Pear: Like the namesake fruit, ladies that are wider on the bottom and smaller on top might love a gown that accentuates their top half. Anything that cinches at the waist will do the trick! Flowing bottoms are most flattering and comfortable.
Busty: For a lady with a large bustline, look for coverage. Try a high-halter neck for modesty or an A-line style dress that features a ruched waist detail.  Avoid any plunging necklines or strapless gowns.
Remember that bridesmaids are front and center—from gliding down the aisle to heating up the dance floor! They will be in your photos forever! Help them find a gorgeous gown that they feel fabulous in.
