Bridesmaids Dresses: Our Style Guide for a Fuller Figure

Wedding season is here! Choosing bridesmaids' dresses for fuller figures can be stressful. Bridesmaids play a special role in a wedding. They stand by your side and help you to get ready for the big day. The dresses you choose for them should not only look beautiful, but also provide a comfortable fit. You also want wedding dresses that accentuate their natural curves.

We compiled a list of ideas and tips to help you choose the perfect dresses for your bridesmaids with lovely fuller figures. 

Complement the Wedding Theme

The bridal party is the centre of attention so they should complement the overall theme of the wedding venue. If you're having an outdoor summer wedding, consider flowy or lighter fabrics and brighter colours. For example, Bombshell London’s Sweetheart Chiffon dress is an excellent choice for a summer wedding. It’s made from lightweight chiffon fabric that's both flattering and comfortable for warmer weather. It also comes in vibrant colours that will add a pop of colour to your wedding party. 

If it’s an indoor wedding or a formal wedding, you can opt for longer evening dresses and fabrics such as silk dupion or lace which provide a more sophisticated look. Dresses made from these materials are luxurious and highlight natural curves, making them ideal for fuller figures.

Comfortable Dresses

Comfort is important for fuller figures. Fabrics that are too restrictive can look unflattering and make your bridesmaids feel miserable. Choose a dress that highlights their natural curves, without being too tight. 

For example, dresses with cap sleeves are a great choice for fuller figures as they offer a flattering neckline that will make your bridesmaids feel confident and beautiful throughout the wedding. We suggest our Navy Roses Confident Bombshell Cap Sleeve Dress, which is a perfect example of a comfortable, yet stylish choice for a wedding dress. It is made from a breathable fabric that will flatter any body type. 

Consider the Bridesmaid's Taste

You want your bridesmaids to be as delighted as you are with their dress choices. Consider their taste when choosing dresses. If someone prefers a classic and timeless look, suggest a dress with a simple, yet elegant design such as the Lace Confident Dress in Navy

If a bridesmaid prefers something a little more bold or colourful, try choosing designs with florals or brighter prints, such as our limited edition Angel Sleeve Wrap Dress in Palm Print. The dress features a wrap-style design that provides a flattering, fitted silhouette to accentuate the waistline. 

Grace Tie Dresses

We love Grace Tie Dresses on fuller figures. These gorgeous dresses have a tie waist that helps to create an hourglass shape. Our Grace Tie Dresses are also made to be flowy and sophisticated. Grace Tie Dresses come with a variety of patterns to suit your wedding and bride’s taste, such as the striking Grace Tie Liberty™ Green Peacock Manor Silk and summery Grace Tie Front Liberty™ Mrs. Gardener Jade dress.

The Confidence Dress

Bombshell London's Confident Dresses are designed to enhance a fuller figure for a confident and comfortable fit. Our dresses are designed with a focus on high-quality fabrics that pay close attention to the details of each dress to ensure that each piece fits and flatters the body.

Confident Dresses are also available in a range of colours and prints, which helps you to match a bridesmaid’s style, while still complementing the overall wedding theme. You can choose between unique patterns such as the Confident Dress made with Liberty Felix & Isabelle Tana Lawn™ or more elegant designs such as our Navy Lace Confident Dress.
