Marine Bridesmaid Dress Styling Tips
The majority of brides choose their bridesmaids who are either close friends or family members. You do not choose your bridesmaid based on their shapes and sizes. Your input on the style that will suit them best will be very appreciated.
For bridesmaid that is plus size, there are styles of marine bridesmaid dresses that will flatter her figure. A bridesmaid dress that creates a waist at the smallest part of her body, which is often right below the bust line, is one option. If the dress does not have a shape built into it, the bridesmaid may consider accessories such as a scarf or belt to help create the desired silhouette.
A bridesmaid who is blessed with a natural waist should emphasize this asset. However, if she does not have a defined waist, she can create a faux waist by cinching in the smaller part of her silhouette by either accessorizing or through the cut of the dress.
Additionally, the skirt of the marine bridesmaid dress should flow out from the natural waist or created waist to project a pleasing silhouette. When the skirt flows outwards and parts, it will hide a large midsection and hips.
If one of her best features is her neck and bust line, she should choose a marine bridesmaid dress style with an open neckline. Some of the flattering necklines for plus size bridesmaids are the V-neck, sweetheart neckline and scoop neckline. The idea is to show off the best parts of her body to bring less attention to the less than perfect parts.
There are also some dress styles that will help bridesmaids, and all women for that matter, to give the appearance of a flat stomach. A marine bridesmaid dress with a mesh panel in the waist will smooth out any midsection bulge.
Another option is to choose a pale shade of blue for a color blocked style that will conceal the extra pounds on the midsection area. The pale shade sides at the waist of a marine bridesmaid dress will make her oblique’s look toned and the hips slimmer.
Give that classic sheath silhouette a modern twist with cap sleeves, slight peplum skirt and skinny belt to create a subtle yet captivating hourglass figure. Another style that is a classic when it comes to giving a slim and svelte look is the V-neck wrap. A marine bridesmaid dress with three quarter length sleeves will keep the arms from jiggling and give that body slimming effect without the feeling of snugness.
A boat neckline for a marine bridesmaid dress will ensure that the bridesmaid’s face and her collarbones will be the first thing that people will notice. Bridesmaids may also complement their bodies by wearing marine bridesmaid dresses with a ruched waist which acts like an illusionist’s corset to make their stomach look more slender.
