July 05, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

Being a bridesmaid is an honor, but finding the right dress can sometimes feel like a challenge. You want a dress that complements the bride's vision for the wedding, but you also want to feel confident and beautiful. If you're looking for a dress that's both modest and sparkly, you're in luck! Here are some tips to help you find the perfect dress:

Consider the Fabric

There are many different fabrics that can create a sparkly effect, and some are more modest than others. Here are a few options to consider:

  • Sequins: Sequins are a classic choice for a sparkly dress. However, they can also be revealing. Look for dresses with sequins that are sewn onto a lining fabric, or choose dresses with matte sequins for a more subtle shimmer.

  • Beading: Beading can add a touch of sparkle and elegance to a dress. Beaded bodices or sleeves can be a great way to add some shimmer without being too revealing.

  • Metallic fabrics: Metallic fabrics can create a subtle or dramatic sparkle, depending on the fabric. Look for dresses in muted metallic tones like rose gold or champagne for a more modest look.

Think About the Silhouette

The silhouette of the dress can also play a role in how modest it is. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Neckline: A higher neckline, such as a bateau neckline or a high neck, will be more modest than a plunging neckline.

  • Length: A floor-length dress will be more modest than a shorter dress. However, you can also find knee-length or midi-length dresses that are modest and stylish.
