Choosing the Best Plus Size Bridesmaid Dresses
Get your bridesmaids' input. Be sure to include your bridesmaids in the process of choosing dresses. You likely have an idea of what you want, but they can help narrow down the options. It will also allow you to come to a consensus on what they personally like. For example, plus size women may want to avoid tight fitting gowns.
Research bridesmaid dress designers. It's important that you do your research before heading to the shops! Some designers don’t offer plus size bridesmaid dresses. By ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to try on dresses, you'll avoid making anyone feel left out.
Mix & match. Mix and match bridesmaid dresses aren’t popular just because they look good. By allowing your bridesmaids to choose a dress of their own preference, they can showcase their personality. Plus they know best what will flatter their body type. No one will be forced to squeeze into a gown that they hate!
Opt for V-Necklines. Necklines are more versatile, but v-necklines usually win. The feminine cut flatters any size bust. This is a perk for many plus size bridesmaids, who may have larger chests.
Choose Lightweight Fabrics. It can be tricky to choose the right bridesmaid dress fabric! Comfort comes first, but you have to consider how fabric will lay against the body. For plus size bridesmaids, try to avoid clingy or tight fitting materials. Instead, we recommend a simple lace or lightweight chiffon that will drape over her curves.
