So you're getting married and have to choose a bridesmaid dress for all those special girls you asked to be your bridesmaid. But. They don't all have the same body type! Big boobs, small boobs, short, tall, tan, pale... Is this a tougher decision than picking out your own wedding dress? Below we've rounded up some tips to help you narrow down your bridesmaid dress selection.

1. Everybody looks good when the waist is accentuated

No matter the body type, a dress with a defined waist is flattering.
