 Have you/your bm looked into good quality concealer makeup for the birthmark? There are a lot of really good products out there that do an amazing job at covering up severe discolouration and scars. Prehaps she could speak to her doctor? They should be able to send her in the right direction

Personally though, I don’t think it would be a big deal about the bms wearing longer dresses than the bride – especially if there’s good reason for the bm’s to be wearing full length gowns. Some people might not think it looks right, but believe me, your photos will look so much better with happy, confident bridesmaids than awkward insecure ones!

What about tea length dresses for the BMs? Tea length will go below the knee and fit with your style. Especially if you have a mid calf dress with lots of vintage volume like puictured, I don’t think it would look odd for BMs to have a dress that falls between the knee and ankle. I can’t imagine floor length going with your dress too well but below the kneee would be fine. Maybe you could let them get a long dress and hem it to a point that makes them happy as long as they are on the same page.

depending on the style of bridesmaid dress, you could get shorter dresses and have them wear stockings/pantyhose, dark enough to hide the birthmark, and more formal than leggings or tights 🙂
