I am going to be a bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding in the US in August and need help picking a bridesmaid dress. She has picked the colours, but I need to know what sort of style will suit my body.
I am about a size 14, pretty standard body shape, but I am a bit top heavy, having around a 38D to 38DD chest. I have a defined waist and a curvy shape.
I really like the long dresses with a band directly below the chest, but because I am a bit heavier up top, the space for my chest is never big enough!
Any help would be so appreciated I can’t begin to tell you!
I’m really impressed with the two birds bridesmaid dress which can be worn multi-way – 15 ways to be precise! With 10 colour choices, you’ll see the perfect style that can be fitted to your body and adjusted as you need it. Have a look on the site www.twobirdsbridesmaid.com - their multi-way dress is jersey and stretchy and one dress fits all.
But if you are looking off the peg you need a low v-neck and a soft jersey stretchy fabric over your bust. An empire line is a great solution but conventional cuts will not have enough fabric in them, hence your difficulty in getting the fit – so is the painless option to find a dressmaker who will fit you just where you need it?
If budget is a problem two birds could be the solution!
Let me know how you get on!
