Bridesmaids Dresses by Body Type

When it comes to bridesmaids (and women in general), no two are exactly alike - that's why picking one dress that every girl looks good in can sometimes be a challenge. Many brides have chosen to pick a unifying color (rather than dress) and let their bridesmaids pick a dress that flatters their unique body type. Whether you are a bride considering this option, or a bridesmaid looking for the perfect dress, check out which dresses look the best on each body type. The best part? Miss Ruby Boutique carries all the dresses pictured below!

Body Type: Busty
Just as the name implies, busty girls have a lot going on up top. We all know no girl wants to be worried about having a wardrobe malfunction at the wedding, so we always recommend dresses with thick straps and a neckline that enhances your two best features. But remember, before you get your dress, invest in some quality undergarments - they are a must for busty girls!

Body Type: Pear Shaped
If your bottom is the biggest part of your body, then you are a "pear-shaped" girl. For these ladies, the trick is finding a dress that accentuates a small waist but also flatters her figure. We recommend a dress with a cinched waist and a fuller skirt. Luckily this 1950's silhouette is back in style and finding a dress that accentuates your features is a breeze!

Body Type: Hourglass
Girls with this classic silhouette have the unique advantage of having the most versatile figure to dress. To accentuate an Hourglass figure, the trick is playing up your curves to your advantage. A dress with a v-neckline and a cinched waist will hit you in all the right places and make you look gorgeous!

Body Type: Slender
Slender girls have a straight up-and-down body type without too many curves. For this body type, a few more fashion risks can be taken, so we definitely recommend wearing something trendy and modern. Dresses with a peplum won't add any volume in the hips. Also, classic sheath dresses look the best on this body type.
