I was oh so excited when I walked into a shop and found the most perfect teal bridesmaid dresses (not 80’s teal)! They were from the Jasmine collection of Belsoie and B2. The best thing about this company is that they allow you to change materials on all of their dresses…which works for me because I have 9 girls (yup, 9!) and wanted them to be able to pick their own dress as long as it was the same material. So here is my dilemma: the materials are either charmeuse (flowy, but clingy) or supreme satin (hides a lot, but super stiff).
Does anyone have opinions on either type of material or have experience with these dresses?

We had Jasmine B2 belsoie dresses in satin, and they looked great. They didn’t feel stiff to any of us. It rained and the dresses didn’t pick up too much muddy water, and they didn’t wrinkle. All around the perfect fabric I would say.

We picked Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, the realized that jersey they were made out of would photograph quite flat. So now we’re looking at silk shantung or satin. I feel your pain.
Charmeuse would be very shiny and wrinkle easily, whereas satin would be less overtly shiny and more glowy. Also, charmeuse shows every nook and cranny on someones body, so if you’re bridesmaids are in modle/fitness competition shape the the charmeuse would prob. be fine. Its a tough call since I prefer the look of charmuse, but the safty of the satin.
