It’s hard to find bridesmaid dresses to fit all body types. It’s not realistic to squeeze women of all shapes and sizes into the same item of clothing. Lucky for you mixing and matching bridesmaid dresses is on trend. To help you find bridesmaid dresses to fit all body types, we’ve pulled together a few neutral bridesmaid dresses that look good on ladies with different bodies.

Bridesmaid Dresses for Pear Body Type

We recommend a bridesmaid dress with a structured silhouette for for hourglass figures (ala Dessy 2938 or After Six 6646), but if you are more comfortable with loose dresses, we recommend choosing a dress with a tight bodice like Dessy 2880.
Inverted Triangle Body Type
How to tell if you have an inverted triangle shaped body type? Your bust is the most prominent measurement. Like Pamela Anderson, if the top portion of your body is larger than the bottom part of your body you likely have an inverted triangle shaped body. An easy way to tell is if your shirt size is larger than your pants size.
What are the best bridesmaid dresses for an inverted triangle shaped body? We recommend choosing an a-line dress or dress with voluminous skirt if you have an inverted triangle figure. Show off your shoulders with a sleek sleeveless dress (Jenny Yoo Eloise) or a sweetheart neckline (similar style by Alfred Angelo here) are also something women with inverted triangle body types should choose. Lucky women with inverted body types can also wear voluminous skirts like Alfred Sung D699.
