The best bridesmaid dresses were not actually intended to be bridesmaid dresses at all. Opt for a favorite designer whose pieces are rewearable and flattering on multiple body types.
Known for silky numbers in bright colors, Geren Ford's designs have a wide range, making them suitable for everything from barefoot on the beach to night at the museum. Most importantly, your maids will feel as good as they look.
Long and short sheaths and skirts from designer Kelly Bergin are yours for the taking. Brights and neutrals mix and match beautifully and are flattering for every hair, skin, size, and shape.
Pastels, ruffles, and lace come together beautifully in Caroline Hedaya's feminine frocks. Thick silk is forgiving of bumps and lumps, while lengths vary from knee to mini, keeping everyone in her comfort zone.
Designer Jenny Galluzzo's line of silky, vintage-inspired caftans is laid back but still ethereal and elegant. The flowy style with a belt for cinching is universally wearable.
If bold statements are your thing, Tucker is the name of your game. Gaby Basora's dresses come in colorful prints created by the designer herself. The variety of styles (rockabilly, floor-length, mini) means there's something for everyone.
