The convertible bridesmaid dress has become so popular because of its versatility. Apart from being popular at weddings, it's also a timeless fashion item that can help you achieve a flattering figure. It lends itself well to both day and night functions.
Convertible dresses may seem like some bit of work, but there are several styles you can use to achieve a great look. Here are some ideas!
1. One Shoulder Twist
The one-shoulder twist style creates an asymmetrical look of the convertible dress. The design works best with all body types, but knowing how to pull it off is essential.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated but modest look, this is the one for you.
2. Grecian Twist Cross Back
This is a style suited for both small chested and bustier ladies. It features twisted straps that cross over at the back to provide maximum support. Bustier ladies prefer the style as the cross back design provides for easy adjustment of the cup.
The style looks different on each body type depending on how the twisting is done. The draping fabric creates some gathers on the chest, which are more evident on smaller chested bodies.
3. Knotted Tank
The knotted tank style is best achieved in brightly-colored dresses. One recommendation is coral. It’s also best for fuller chested ladies as the concentration of the two knots helps keep the bust in position.
4. Front Neck Twist
This style is best for ladies who don’t want to show off their décolletage. It fully covers the bust but leaves the shoulders uncovered.
Look out for bulging skin under the arms. Smaller chested ladies would feel more comfortable in this style. It works best with a bandeau bra.
5. Cap Sleeve Tank
If you want a style that’ll cover up your girls during the ceremony, the cap sleeve tank is the one to go for. It’s ideal for ceremonies held in a place of worship.
Adjust the width at the waist to suit your preference. However, note that the style doesn’t give as much support as the others highlighted above.
Your wedding day is a great opportunity for you and your brides to rock in beautiful outfits. You can experiment with different dress styles by going for the convertible bridesmaids’ dresses. These allow you the versatility to experiment with a variety of designs.
Among them are the cap sleeve tank, front neck twist, knotted tank, and one-shoulder twist. Have a professional help you with tying the straps to achieve the best look. You want to be confident that your girls are the envy of the crowd on your big day.
