by Kennedy Blue August 08, 2018

After the bride has asked you to be her bridesmaid, while the excitement is still in there, it’s time to start working towards figuring out what kind of bridesmaid dress you will be wearing. Nervous? Don’t be! Finding a flattering bridesmaid dress can be one of the highlights of the whole wedding experience for both you and your bridal party. 

Are you worried about finding a modest bridesmaid dress that all the ‘maids will be comfortable in? You shouldn’t have to be! Finding a bridesmaid dress that is both flattering and easy to wear is doable.

Why a modest bridesmaid dress?

Having a modest bridesmaid dress does not have to come at the expense of looking or feeling out of place. In fact, quite the opposite. You can look elegant and appropriate while still feeling beautiful, fashionable, and confident. For the most part, bridesmaid dresses are already made to be pretty modest because they take so many body types into consideration; Kennedy Blue offers many A-line cut dresses to accommodate their customers.

If you are worried about looking different because you want a modest bridesmaid dress, don’t be! You might want one to disguise a baby bump or cover any tattoos. Perhaps as a younger bridesmaid, you just feel like you are not comfortable in a revealing dress. Maybe you would like to wear a modest bridesmaid dress out of respect for your religion. Whatever the reason, fear not! We’ve compiled a list of the best 10 styles to try on the next time you are looking for a flattering bridesmaid dress.

Measurement Guide - How to Measure for Your Size

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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.

Hip size
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.
