When you put on a dress, we see the colour of your exposed skin and hair, as well as the contours of your body, so choosing bridesmaid dresses for different body types and skin colours can successfully hide your flaws and make your strengths shine.
Different skin tones
In general, we divide skin colours into warm, cool, neutral and olive skin tone. What is your skin colour?
Look closely at the colour of your veins. If it is green or olive then you may have a warm skin tone. People with warm skin are suited to wearing warm colours, which will make them look gentle and approachable. Recommended colours: Gold, Champagne, ivory, Rose gold, Burnt orange.
Girls with cool skin tones have blue or purple veins. Girls with cool skin look good in soft or cool-coloured dresses. Recommended colours: Silver, Ivory, Mint-green, Lavender, Blushing-pink, Coral.
Your veins are colourless, which indicates that you are a girl with a neutral skin tone. Neutral-skinned girls have many colours to choose from. Warm colours will make them look warm and elegant, while colours like emerald green and royal blue will make them look demure and glamorous. Recommended colours: Burgundy, Terracotta, Emerald green, Royal-blue, Daffodil yellow.
Olive skin is not common, if you have this skin colour then we suggest you choose a dark dress, this will make you look beautiful and clean, there is no need to choose a colour that is too light. Recommended colours: Brown, Burnt-orange, Moss, Dark-navy, Burgundy, and Cabernet.
Different body types
Body shape also varies from person to person. Apple, pear, hourglass, strawberry, straight, and rectangular - which body type are you?
Apple-shaped, which is what we usually call an O-shaped body. This type of person has most of the flesh concentrated in the waist and hips. We recommend choosing a high-waisted bridesmaid dress to make you appear slimmer. Keep the top as simple as possible and avoid complicated embellishments. Neckline suggestions: strapless, one-shoulder, off-shoulder, spaghetti straps dress. Recommended styles: A-line, two-piece design, V-neck, mermaid.
Pear-shaped, or A-shaped, people in this category have wider hips and can wear A-line dresses for a coordinating effect. Neckline suggestions: V-neck, one-shoulder, off-shoulder. Recommended styles: A-line, side slit, two-piece design.
Hourglass (X) women have a slim waist, this type of figure looks good in everything, show off your curves! Neckline suggestions: strapless, off-shoulder, one-shoulder. Recommended styles: side slit, V-neck, mermaid, backless.
Strawberry shapes, also known as inverted shapes, have a strong lower body and opt for side slit dresses to accentuate the legs and shift the visual focus. Neckline suggestions: V-neck, strapless, one-shoulder. Recommended styles: side slit, mermaid.
Straight body type is also called H/I type, a body of the same thickness up and down, and this type of person does not have a prominent waist curve. Neckline suggestions: V-neck, one-shoulder, off-shoulder, halter. Recommended styles: A-line, side-slit, mermaid.
A rectangular figure(big frame), is unlike an H-shaped figure, which tends to be tall and athletic, while an H-shaped person is neither wide nor thin at the shoulders, waist or hips. Neckline suggestions: halter, one-shoulder, jewel, V-neck. Recommended styles: A-line, side slit.
