The Best Bridesmaid Dresses for Your Body Type

One of the most asked questions we are asked by bridesmaids in our Jenny Yoo showrooms is "What dress would you suggest for my body type?" Women come in all shapes and sizes, and we design dresses that will not only flatter your body shape, but highlight your best features. Whether you're the main event or supporting from the sidelines, you deserve to feel and look beautiful in a bridal party gown that comfortable and stunning. Hourglass, apple, rectangular, triangle, and inverted triangle, although you may not perfectly fall into one of these categories, find the one that relates most closely. Read on for our best recommendations for bridesmaid dresses based on your body type.

Body Type: Hourglass

Show off your curvy figure by wearing something fitted that cinches your waist. Some of our favorite bridesmaid dresses to show off your curves below.
