Well, crinkle chiffon, we’ve had a good run. From at-home try-ons to countless beautiful Kennedy Blue weddings, you’ve brought joy to so many couples and bridesmaids. However, it’s time to say goodbye.
Due to feedback and requests for more extensive color options, Kennedy Blue will discontinue crinkle chiffon styles while transitioning several customer favorites to duplicate styles in our customer-preferred flat chiffon fabric. This means that you’ll still be able to order many of your favorite dress styles, but will have more color options to choose from due to the material change - score!
Well, not much! Crinkle chiffon is slightly textured in an ultra-fine accordion-like pattern. It is not entirely noticeable unless you look at the fabric very closely. Flat chiffon, on the other hand, is smoother in texture and is available in a wider variety of colors. Chiffon is a flowy fabric in nature and is super comfortable and flattering on all bridesmaids.
Read on to see which crinkle chiffon styles will be duplicated and made with flat chiffon during our transition and which styles will only be available to purchase while supplies last.
Although there are several colors that are going to be completely removed from our line due to our discontinuation of crinkle chiffon, there are several colors that were offered in crinkle chiffon that are currently offered in flat chiffon.
These colors will unfortunately no longer be offered in chiffon at Kennedy Blue; however, there are colors that are similar to these discontinued colors that we're sure you will love!
If you love Coral, we do offer this color in lace, or you can order a flat chiffon style in Cantaloupe - another adorable peachy color!

While Cactus will not be available in flat chiffon, we think you’ll dig Sea Glass and Sage!
As I mentioned earlier, there are several colors that were offered with our crinkle chiffon dresses that are offered with our flat chiffon dresses. We currently offer Eggplant, Mint, White, Claret, Sage, and Slate Blue in flat chiffon!
Lilac: Try Violet in flat chiffon!
Peacock: Try Marine flat chiffon!
Royal: While we don’t offer any similar tones to Royal in flat chiffon, you might be interested in our customer favorite, Slate Blue.
Get these styles while supplies last!

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.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
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.
Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
