Bridesmaid Dress of the Week: Watters Turin

It doesn't get much more beautiful than this Watters bridesmaid dress in crinkle chiffon! The Turin dress is so ethereal & delicate - such a lovely dress for brides looking for a soft, romantic look.

The floor length skirt with it's shirring detail & slim sheath draping makes for a flattering fit on all sizes.

The strapless neckline features shirred detail & a modified sweetheart. The waist is accented with a grosgrain ribbon. This neckline is perfect for maids looking for a little extra detail on the bodice & the belted waist makes for a nice slim waistline!

With almost 30 crinkle chiffon colors to choose from & a plethora of ribbon options this dress will work for all color schemes. We love the dress as pictured in lavender with the black ribbon. So exquisite!

Flattering Bridesmaid Dresses for Every Figure

When selecting dresses for your bridesmaids it is important to select styles that will flatter their figures. Below are some styles to look for to make sure your bridesmaids will feel confident and gorgeous on the wedding day!

Apple Figure - Broad shoulders with narrow hips and thighs

Full length or cocktail length dresses with one shoulder and square neckline details look best on women with apple figures. Fitted waist and empire waist silhouettes can hide tummies and look especially fabulous on ladies with this shape as well.

Boyish Figure - Straight shape flows from shoulders to thighs

To compliment a woman of this body shape, try a gown with a feature at the waist to give the illusion of an hourglass figure & add more shape. Adding a wide strap to the neckline will instantly flatter this figure to the fullest.

Pear Shape - Hip measurement is fuller than bust measurement

Pear shapes look stunning in dresses with attention grabbing necklines. And they'll appreciate the minimizing affects of a fitted waist & fuller skirt. Find a gown with surplice bodice detailing and you've hit the bulls-eye! Feel free to experiment with dresses that are cocktail or full length.

Hourglass Figure - Similar bust and hip measurements with a smaller waist circumference 

Hourglass figures look best in various necklines including strapless dresses, scoop neck and v-neck. Belted/fitted waistlines will fit this body type beautifully! A body hugging dress will also flatter curves in all the right places.

All Body Types 

When selecting a gown for a bridal party of varying shapes and sizes, the fabric of the gown is just as important to consider as the silhouette. Chiffon can be a very versatile fabric for body shapes and can be most forgiving for problem areas.  Column shape or a-line dresses will flatter just about every figure.  A v-neckline draws attention to the waist and can look flattering on many body-types. Our Miss Ruby stylists are experts in this area so don't let all these details overwhelm you. It's our job to help you select the best dress for your bridesmaids of varying shapes and sizes!
