Expert Advice: What to Look for in Plus-Size Bridesmaid Dresses

To help make finding a plus-size bridesmaid dress easier, we tapped CEO and founder of Birdy Grey, Grace Lee, who offered her expert advice on everything you need to know when finding your perfect fit. "When shopping for a bridesmaid dress, you want to spotlight your favorite assets—whether you're a size 2 or a size 14," says Lee. "But curvy women might have a unique set of challenges, like making sure straps are supportive enough for their bust or finding a curve-hugging style that's actually comfortable to wear all night."

Below are some of Lee's tips and tricks to help you find the dress that highlights your lovely silhouette, shows off your favorite features, and makes you feel beautiful.

Focus on Silhouette: "When shopping for plus-size bridesmaid dresses online, look for styles that show off your shape," Lee recommends. "They highlight the waist and gently flow around the rest of the body for a dreamy effect. Our Hannah Dress is a great option because the silhouette complements curves and it has beautiful flutter sleeves for arm coverage that still allow tons of movement."

Consider Different Fabrics: "Choose fabric that's not too clingy so you can feel comfortable all day—and night! Our chiffon drapes beautifully along the body, giving a pretty shape but still offering space to breathe. If you're looking for something more form-fitting to show off those sexy curves, opt for something that isn't going to feel too constricting, like crepe or velvet."

Don't Forget the Neckline: "Try dresses that will elongate your torso and neck. V-necks, sweetheart necklines, and scoop necklines will all lengthen your upper body and accentuate your lovely bust. The Devin Dress and the Jane Dress are two options that have a cold-shoulder for those that prefer a little arm coverage, but the Grace Convertible Dress and the Amy Dress are great options too!"

Look for Reinforcements: "Look for dresses with thicker straps," says Lee. "If you need some extra support for your bust, a dress with bigger straps (or sleeves) will hide any bra straps so you can sit, stand, and dance the night away without worry."

Wear What Makes You Feel Confident: "Wear what makes you feel most beautiful; look back on pictures where you felt your best, or go through your closet and find the dresses that you love the most. What do they have in common? Do they accentuate your bust, or cinch in at the waist? Do they hug your curves or flow out around you? All of this information can help you choose your bridesmaid dress."

Find Inspiration and Support: "Look at pictures and reviews to double check your choice," Lee tells us. "When you're shopping online, it's tough to know what the dress will look like IRL. We're lucky to have an active Birdy Grey community online, and I recommend using that to your advantage. Scroll through our Instagram and TikTok to see what different styles and colors look like on different bodies. And if you don't see what you're looking for, send us a note—we're here to help!"
