2. Fabrics

Luxury fabrics such as satin and velvet are becoming increasingly popular nowadays. Satin dresses are Chicsew's best sellers. When it comes to "satin", people often think of "silk", both of which have a rich sense of high class. Satin is very comfortable to wear, which looks like a pyjama style. In summer, you should wear a smooth "satin" dress, it is cool and does not stick skin. The fabric of satin is very thick and tough, and it looks much grander and heavier than silk. Satin is also very easy to handle. Because of the particularity of the material, it is relatively dirty and does not easy to appear wrinkled. The satin fabric is very physical. Because this kind of fabric's vertical feeling is very good. The smooth, clean surface will expose small imperfections of the body.

Then how to measure your chest, waist and hips? First, wear the bra you will be wearing with the dress, and pull the tape across the fullest part of the bust. Second, bend to one side to find the crease, that's your natural waist. Pull tape across the narrowest part and keep the tape slightly loose to allow for breathing room. Third, stand straight and pull tape across the widest part of the hips and rear. Last, stand straight with bare feet together and measure from the center of the collarbone to the floor. Satin will have a lustrous surface and will shimmer and shine fantastically in the light and sunlight. If chiffon, which flutters in the wind, has a fairy feel, then satin, which is gorgeous and flamboyant. It's full of aristocratic flair. The velvet is plump, with a fine texture, soft to the touch, comfortable to wear and beautiful to look at. It is elastic, lint-free, non-pilling and three times more absorbent than cotton, and it is non-irritating to the skin. Velvet's delicate touch, flowing drape and elegant lustre are unmatched by other fabrics, making it a favourite choice among fashion designers for its luxurious fabrics. However, please be careful not to stack velvet garments, as this can easily damage the natural course of the pile, making it difficult to recover and prone to static electricity. And because the surface of velvet is made up of densely packed small fluff, it is inevitable that some fluff particles will remain on the garment during the production and processing of the fabric. Don’t worry, they will generally be washed out in the first few washes.

These fabrics add a touch of elegance and can be dressed up or down depending on the style of the wedding. Of course, as more and more people become environmentally conscious, bridesmaid dresses made from sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, hemp and bamboo are expected to become increasingly popular.

3. Unique necklines

Halter, strapless and one-shoulder designs with unique necklines are becoming increasingly popular for bridesmaid dresses.

The halter dress is very popular with some fashionable women because they feel that although the sweetheart dress will be more dignified to wear, sometimes it is inevitable that these dresses will lose the elegance and generosity they have been emphasizing, especially as they grow older and their figures change, they dare not try it easily, it is better to choose a halter dress that shows off their femininity and match it with some nice bags. The halter dress is cool and comfortable to wear and gives you a unique look.

Most importantly, the strapless dress also shows off your curves, making the outfit not old-fashioned but rather full of personality and focus, so it is a very good choice for most people. It can ensure the wearing of the fashion sense but also shape your temperature.
