I am getting married in November and will be having 4 bridesmaids, including my maid of honor, who have various bodytypes.
Our wedding colors are purples, ivory, silver and black. The dresses would be dark purple.
These are the final five choices. Which would you prefer?
1. Mori Lee 883:
2. Priscilla of Boston PB411:
3. Eden Bridal 1787:
4. Watter 916:
5. Divinci 9324:

I voted Watters. I also like the Mori Lee a lot, but I figured that the Watters would be more flattering to all body types. I think the Priscilla of Boston is very pretty, too, but it screams “bridesmaid” to me–not necessarily a bad thing, of course. Something about the back of the Eden Bridal looks like it’d be unflattering in real life–like it’d squish up back fat, even on the skinny ladies!
Anyway, if it were me, I’d want to wear the Watters, and I honestly think I’d wear it again post-wedding.

I picked the watters for the same reason as stillme, i think it would be easier to work with for various body types.

I love the P of B one. Gorgeous and I think it’s the most flattering on!

I think no. 5, the Divinci, is out because the bottom isn’t very flowy and it won’t look good on all body types. After that, it’s still a tough choice.

Watters! As pretty as all those styles are, most are very “flat” I love the Watters, I feel like I could re-wear that one! lol

I love the last two the best – they look like they can be worn again and look comfortable and flattering.

Watters and Mori Lee are my two favorites.

I would also vote for the last 2. they are the most likely to fit all the girls.

I’m not having any bridesmaids, I’m getting married in a registry office, so I am glad to not have to keep all my girlfriends happy (size/age/style/etc). I understand one shoulder dresses are very this year though. Even better if the dress can be worn again for something else. Bridesmaids dresses have changed so much since I was one (when I was 6 lol)

Thanks ladies, this is really helping. 🙂

I vote Watters. And I really like the Mori Lee. The last one would be a tough one to pull off if some of your girls are busty and uncomfortable with that. Personally, I’d probably feel like I was spilling out a bit.

I agree with you on the last dress. I just don’t think it’s flowy enough, and it does show off the cleavage a little. There are two one shoulder dresses up there, but I really like the cut of the waist better on the Morilee.

Since you said you have a variety of body types, I would go for the Watters, I think it would be the most universally flattering.
