I recently got my dress and I ordered it in Alabaster, like in the picture. So now I’m looking for my bridesmaid dresses. I had one bridesmaid who is in between in sizes of all the bridesmaids, some are bigger and some are smaller. The dresses will be in BLACK. First I’ll post my dress then the 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man options.
this is beaded un the bust with some bling, and strapless
this is long, satin and strapless
chiffon, with 1 shoulder flower strap
satin haulter top
spaghetti strap chiffon with flower in the middle of chest

I think two and four are more formal like your dress and will provide the most flattering fit

I think the brown halter top is most flattering. I think it would look very elegant in black.

I would say #2 or #3 would look best.

I would avoid spaghetti straps on girls that size. They make us look bigger because the strap is so dingy in comparison. If you want a strap, it needs to be a lot wider, proportional to the girl. I’d also avoid the less-fitted dresses, like the last one with the umpire. That makes a girl look bigger too. You need structure, maybe rouching or boning.

I agree that the brown halter number 4 is most flattering. It doesn’t add volume like the other and is will look elegant and chic in the similar fabric to yours.
It is not too detailed which will let your dress shine!

I really like the first one 🙂 its my fav and would look great in black! I like the little bit of bling it has, it complaments your dress! the others look to plain to me.

Number 4 I believe would be universally flattering, whether the bridesmaid is a size 00 or a size 30. Number 3 *could* be more flattering if that strap was angled.
Please stay away from the spaghetti straps. They are only flattering if you are small to medium sized bust and have small shoulders. Broad shoulders = bigger straps.
