June 21, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

For many bridesmaids, finding a dress that feels both beautiful and comfortable can be a challenge. Especially for a modest bridesmaid, the selection can sometimes feel limited. But fear not! With a focus on darling details, you can find a dress that's both flattering and full of personality.

Here are some inspiring ideas to get your search for the perfect modest bridesmaid dress started:

  • Sleeves with personality: Ditch the strapless look and embrace sleeves! From delicate lace sleeves to romantic puff sleeves, there are many options that add a touch of femininity and coverage. Consider a dress with fluttery sleeves or sleeves adorned with lace for an extra touch of whimsy.

  • High necklines with a twist: A high neckline can add sophistication and elegance to a bridesmaid dress. But that doesn't mean it has to be boring! Look for dresses with interesting necklines, like a high neck with a keyhole detail or a boat neckline with delicate ruching.

  • Fabric that flatters: The fabric of your dress can play a big role in creating a modest silhouette. Chiffon is a popular choice for its soft, flowing drape. It can also be layered to create a more opaque look.

  • Embellishments that delight: Delicate details like lace appliques, a beaded waistband, or a row of buttons down the back can add a touch of charm to your dress. Think about details that complement the overall theme of the wedding.

  • Classic silhouettes with a modern twist: A-line and fit-and-flare silhouettes are classic choices for bridesmaid dresses, and they can also be easily adapted for a modest look. Look for dresses with higher necklines, longer sleeves, or a midi or maxi length hem for a touch of modern modesty.
