See how real girls wear their Paper Grown bridesmaid dresses on

When I began the wedding planning process, one of the things that was very important in terms of picking my bridesmaids’ dresses was making sure that each of my friends felt comfortable in what she was wearing. Everyone’s body and style are different in everyday life. So, in my opinion, there’s no reason not to let your bridesmaids choose what feels most comfortable for them. When my dear friend and Paper Crown co-founder Maura and I set out to design our Paper Crown Bridesmaids line, we kept this idea in mind. That’s why we created different necklines, colors, styles, lengths—you name it—for our collection. And we’re still adding new styles every season!

Our bridesmaids line truly has a dress for everyone’s style and a whole range of body types. And today, I’m excited to show you how six bloggers have styled our bridesmaids dresses to flatter their figures. Think of it as a little guide on how to help your ‘maids choose the dress they love most. And remember, you can mix and match any of these styles together to create a stunning wedding party where everyone feels gorgeous in their own skin.

Without further ado, here’s how six gorgeous, real-life women styled our Paper Crown Bridesmaids dresses…

Jaclyn of My View In Heels wearing Paper Crown

Jaclyn of My View In Heels stands at 5’11” and wears our Tori Dress in “Pewter” beautifully. She can still wear heels with the dress, which is a major bonus for a bridesmaid who wants to wear fancy footwear on your big day. This style is flattering for your taller friends because it accentuates the waist and creates a long, lean silhouette. Shop for the Tori Dress by clicking here.

For The Bridesmaid Who’s Expecting…

Paper Crown dresses for every body, including bridesmaids who are expecting

If one of your bridesmaids happen to be expecting when you plan your wedding, it’s important to help her find a dress that will allow her to feel comfortable and look her most beautiful on the day of your nuptials. The Natalie Dress from our bridesmaids line is the perfect style for accentuating a baby bump and creating a long silhouette. It comes with a self-tie sash to help your ‘maid get the perfect fit, but it can be worn without as well. Maria of Classified Chic looks breathtaking while modeling this style in “Cream,” one of our favorite colors of the entire collection.

Your friends who are smaller on top and curvier on the bottom will appreciate the way our Lauren dress fits: It’s ideal for pear-shaped ladies, with its flattering waistline and long, sleek skirt. It elongates any body type and feels fun to wear, too! Take it from Lauren of Bohemian by the Bay, who shows how this dress, modeled here in “Silver Peony,” can look flattering and romantic all at once. Shop our Lauren Dress by clicking here.

Emily of ShellChic’d stands at just 5’4”, making her the perfect petite model for our Breanna Dress. This style, modeled here in “Tote Basket”, has an empire waist, which allows for hemming without compromising the design of the dress. That means that your ‘maids of small stature can customize this dress to fit their bodies perfectly. All of our styles can be hemmed at the bottom as well, so your petite friends can wear the shoes they want without having to worry about the length of their dresses.

Our Jillian Dress will make your bridesmaids with beautiful curves feel instantly glamorous when it comes time to get ready on the big day. The Greek-goddess-inspired silhouette has delicate ruching, which allows the dress to flow gracefully with any movement. And the waistline is flattering on any body type.

    I love all of these dresses, they are so pretty! Thank you for the breakdown about which styles of the line work best for different body types. Being able to choose the style of your bridesmaid dress is definitely something that is appreciated. I have been in quite a few weddings and it helps to feel comfortable in the dress you are being photographed in and wearing all day long. <3

    Xoxo M.

  • I love these! Too cute!

  • Finding bridesmaid dresses can be so hard! I think it’s important to try to pick something that the bridesmaids can actually were again without looking like a bridesmaid, that way they aren’t spending a bunch of money on a dress they wear once. Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful neautral dresses! These are some great choices!

  • Lavender is my favorite color for bridesmaid dresses. It looks so nice around eucalyptus-colored greenery.

  • Loving all of these beautiful dresses, but the first one is definitely my favorite of all time <3 It's so pretty! 🙂

    XO, Elizabeth

  • Love the first two dresses and the colors, so amazing:)

  • I love the color palette! Especially the first one!

    xo, Britney

  • In such great company! Thanks so much for including me PC + Team LC, couldn’t love this dress more!

    Well that’s just a poorly thought ad. None of these dreesses actually suits the body type you say it does. They are all made for very tall and lean women. Everyone knows that am hourglass shaped girl should never hide her wait, and the pearshaped girls usually avoid wearing a dress so tight around the hips.
