Satin-Top Bridesmaid Dresses: A Modern Take on Traditional Styles!

by Danielle Salazar December 10, 2015

Let’s face it — for those who like satin bridesmaid dresses, your options are really quite limited. You either have the long, overly-glam styles that are just way too outdated and look like a throwback to 2002 OR you have the short, fun-loving styles that would be better suited for a girls night out than a wedding. Luckily, we just released four new styles that are unique, fun, and super stylish! Honestly, I’ve been tempted to buy one just for the hell of it — that’s how cute they are!

Our newest styles feature chic, satin tops with flowing chiffon skirts, creating that ulta-romantic look that’s perfect for your big day! Not to mention, they run between $150-$180 and are available in 32 different colors, meaning you’re bound find a color you’ll adore. Check them out below!

New Satin & Chiffon Bridesmaid Dresses

Part of what we love so much about these satin-top dresses is how unique they are! Sure you see tons of all-satin styles or all-chiffon styles hanging on boutique racks, but how often do you see the combination together in one dress!? These styles are unique, and don’t have that super bridesmaid-y feel to them, which I guarantee your ‘maids will thank you for!

The best part? You can incorporate other Kennedy Blue styles (chiffon or even lace!) with these to create a fun mix and match look that your ‘maids will love and totally appreciate. All you have to do is decide on a color (or more than one) and have your girls choose the dress that looks best on them.

A Chic, Spaghetti Strap Style

Measurement Guide

Taking Your Measurements

For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor. 

**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.




Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

Waist size:  While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.

Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Choosing your correct size

Compare  these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
