The Karen Willis Holmes bridal brand is widely acclaimed by trend conscious brides and her designs were so well received when she launched her couture range that she was inspired to create her Bespoke collection.

Limelight brides often tell us they are worried about shopping for bridesmaids’ dresses because everyone in the party is a different size and shape. They want all their friends to feel equally amazing but are daunted by the task of finding dresses that suit everyone. Our response? Not only is bridesmaids shopping easier than you think, it is great fun, as long as everyone remembers … the key to dress shopping is shape not size. Girls who wear very different dress sizes can share the same body shape and look and feel equally stunning so long as the dress flatters their shape.

ENCOURAGE YOUR BRIDESMAIDS TO CELEBRATE THEIR SHAPE

It’s a well known phenomenon in the bridal world, that every client regardless of her age and size will focus entirely on what she dislikes about her body.  She will say my bust and hips are too big when she has a tiny waist and an amazing hourglass shape or, my shoulders are too broad when she has slender hips and legs to die for! The secret is for your maids to embrace their individual body shapes and experiment with styles to draw attention to their best bits by balancing proportions…

SHOPPING FOR BODY SHAPE

Upper body is narrower than the lower half?

Look for dresses that accentuate your shoulders – ruffles or drop sleeves – and draw attention to your waist with an A line skirt …

Lower body is narrower than upper body ?

Wear fuller skirts, avoid spaghetti straps and experiment with high waisted styles…

Narrow hips, long legs, fuller waistline?

Elongate the torso with V necklines wear shorter skirts to show off those legs…

And the dress to suit all body shapes?

To create curves and to celebrate curves…

Shop with your bridesmaids in a bridal boutique with a full selection of dresses by the same designer – Sorella Vita stockists carry every style in the entire collection – this way you can be sure of finding dresses of different styles to flatter individual body shapes in matching or complimentary wedding colours and textures, so all your maids feel and look gorgeous. Shop with confidence and enjoy!
