Lovely dresses for bridesmaids are important part of visual wedding choreography and they definitely add to memorable experience. We want them looking great and being comfortable at the same time. So we selected few of the most popular models in 2015 made of chiffon, all inexpensive and available under 100 dollars.
Why Is Chiffon So Popular?
This sheer and elegant fabric was for centuries a popular choice of nobility. It's lightweight, easy to wear and shows a wearer in better light because it can add volume and nicely floats over one's body, giving somehow 'out of this world' effect. No wonder it's so often used at weddings, for brides, bridesmaids and other members of a wedding party. It's very comfortable to wear and not too delicate, what makes it very suitable for wearing at other special occasions like proms, homecomings and similar gatherings, especially at warmer weather or in closed spaces.
Chiffon is actually not a material, but type of weave, what means there are several types of chiffon, roughly divided into natural and synthetic fibers, on the market. The most precious is silk chiffon, but in recent years polyester overpassed it because it's much easier to maintain (in some cases it's even machine washable) and of course much more affordable. We decided to present different chiffon bridesmaids' dresses, of different colors and cuts, suitable for different levels of formality, all available on-line, ready to be ordered with a simple click.
Long Chiffon Outfits
Could we possibly start better than with a long elegant dress in champagne color, where chiffon fascinates in all its attractiveness? It's actually available in 23 (!) different colors, but before you order, you should carefully measure yourself, because according to numerous reviewers it comes pretty long (perfect for very high heels) and with full built in bra, made for a bit bustier women.
If you are looking for simple, yet dramatic appearance of your bridesmaids, this attire is a pretty safe bet. It is classy and elegant, appropriate even for the most ultra formal occasions, but still flowy and relaxed, so it can work great in much more informal situations. Of course you can adapt the final appearance by accessories. V neck almost calls for a necklace, you have all the freedom with hair updos, sashes, ... Well, you got the idea!
Customers are very satisfied with this dress and the vendor is praised for its helpfulness by dozens of clients, so if we add it was available with a nice discount last time we checked, we are pretty sure we found a very strong favorite.
Floor length hemline, asymmetrical neckline, and column silhouette with ruching on the torso and a zipper on the back (with an option of lace-up) are basic characteristics of this spectacular evening dress. It best suits rectangle, inverted triangle and hourglass shaped bodies, but we have to be sure wearers will feel comfortable showing their right shoulders and also be careful with jewelry which should not be too showy. Instead of a necklace it's probably better to choose a nice pair of earrings.
We all know how delicate can be a breast support with such off the shoulder dresses, but in this case a built in bra should provide a solution. This gown is available in sizes from 0 to 30 and with additional payment in customized size as well. Standard tailoring time is up to 15 days, but you can get it much faster, if you contact the retailer, who will be happy to meet your special needs, if possible. By the way, if this lovely pale blue color doesn't suit your color scheme, the dress comes in dozens of other colors too!
We are still at long bridesmaid dresses. We have chosen a black (although a bit grayish) variant (don't worry, it's also available in 18 other colors) suitable for different formal or semi formal occasions. It really doesn't matter what is your wedding theme, bridesmaids in this dress will accentuate the bride in any case. Sweetheart neckline always makes each lady a bit more feminine and this is definitely welcome at wedding receptions.
This gorgeous gown is made of soft chiffon, has a built-in-bra, pleaded bodice and comes with a matching shawl. According to numerous reviews the buyers are very well pleased with the quality of the material and the service, but several (especially bustier women) had problems with size, what is definitely the main concern at every dress. Before you order, make sure you have all the right measures written down and send them to retailer who will alter the dress as you wish, so it will fit you perfectly.
A-line shaped dresses are back for some time now and if you are looking for elegant, yet a bit more casual style of your bridesmaids, a pale pink chiffon dress above offers a great solution. Be romantic and relaxed in a lightweight fabric which is easy to wear and flattering on all body shapes. A halter neckline is known as the most universal for all sizes and works particularly well on broader shoulders. With a built-in-bra, it also adds some curves to the right places.
On the other hand, if arms are not the strongest part of one or more of your bridesmaids, a fitted jacket will help. This fully lined gown designed by Emeralda is floor length what means it should touch floor, so please be sure to try it on in your wedding shoes when you have it hemmed. Ruche on the bodice and ruffles on the left strap add dimension and make the dress even more interesting.
Short Chiffon Dresses For Your Lovely Bridesmaids
Cap sleeved dresses are in very high demand right now and if you want a casual but still eye catching dress, the plum (or one of other 14 different available colors) dress with cute floral embellishments on the side presented above may be the one. Cap sleeves cover only the shoulders and look gorgeous on most body types with the exception of the ladies with really strong arms, which are not covered in this case, so they can look too bulky.
David's Bridal is US clothier with a huge reputation and well known costumer service, so no need to worry about the quality, just be careful at measuring. Reviews report about lots of received compliments and recommend wearing it with spandex and strapless bra. Remember - it's a pretty short dress, so if you are not feeling comfortable showing your knees, next choice might be a better one.
Here we have another A lined chiffon dress, this time in probably the most universal length of all - tea length, suitable for all special and casual occasions. It's a strapless design which will leave bare shoulders and is perfect for warmer weather, beach weddings and similar parties where a skin needs some air to breath. Straight neckline will attract attention to upper part of the body, what will work great for thinner bridesmaids with smaller or medium breasts, but it can be also exceptionally successful for bustier ladies, if they have the right support. Strapless bras which visually prolongate the neck can achieve especially attractive solutions in this case.
This seemingly simple dress is embellished with ruching and a ribbon sash with a flower. Sash is made of white satin and visually cuts the body creating illusion of an hourglass. If you love pale blueish tones, we have a whole article dedicated to turquoise dresses for bridesmaids too, and if you want a different, perhaps warmer color, you can choose from dozes of popular colors as well. Available with free shipping (check the terms)!
In The Mood For Hi Lo?
With high low style we join best of the both worlds - playful and relaxed above the knees at front and still pretty formal ankle length at behind. Of course you can't wear such attire at ultra formal ceremonies, but in most of other situations can it works great. High low bridesmaid dresses became very popular in recent years, what coincides with more colorful, relaxed and personalized approach to weddings. It's no problem to imagine a whole pack of guests in similar asymmetrical designs and beach, garden, or bohemian inspired weddings are only few of suitable situations.
While we mentioned boho style, we should immediately add how important are shoes and accessories at hi lo gowns. A nice, well cared for pair of legs won't hurt either. At this particular US made piece it's also important to note that it may run small, so be careful at measuring. You can choose from 13 different colors, all dresses are in stock and ready for shipping, so you can get one for you ASAP.
We hope you enjoyed our on-line selection of chiffon gowns for weddings and similar events. All can be worn at different occasions, you can for instance pick one as attire for sister of the bride or the groom too, just be careful at maintenance, because chiffon can loose form if it is not treated right. All presented outfits are sensational without a painful price tag, so you just need to decide which suits you best and - enjoy!
