Plus-size bridesmaids dresses used to be few and far between, but as the body-positivity movement continues to diversify labels from mall brands to designer, more fashion-forward dress options abound for women size 14 and above. As a bridesmaid, you’re about to be part of a very important celebration—likely with a few more 'maids alongside you—which means a stunning bridesmaid dress for a wedding ceremony is crucial to appropriately stand out and look your very best.

Whether you’re looking for a long, midi, or above-the-knee silhouette, plus-size bridesmaid dresses are more stylish than ever. For a classic look, a lace or ruffled dress is sweet and feminine whether you go for one with sleeves or a silhouette that highlights your arms or neckline. An A-line dress with an off-the-shoulder or boatneck shape á la Meghan Markle is ultra-flattering for your upper body while a ruched or wrap silhouette is a gorgeous way to feature your waist and compliment your curves. Another way to emphasize your upper body is with or a halter neckline, strapless, cold-shoulder, or one-shoulder shape. If you’re in need of a dress that’s supportive up top without feeling constricting, a V-neckline is elegant whether you choose one with long, short, or flutter sleeves.

For a luxe look, velvet, satin, and lace dresses are gorgeous from puffy-sleeve midis to slim-fitting gowns. If the invitation calls for black tie, intricate beading or metallic dresses will feel fittingly glamorous. Don’t forget bridesmaids dresses don’t equate to solids only—a floral-print dress is a great way to break up solid colors while still keeping within the color palette whether you choose a vintage-inspired bloom or bolder, splashy pattern. For the minimalist plus-size bridesmaid, a sleek slip or timeless little black dress is winning. Plus, either option is incredibly versatile to wear again and again.
