Picking bridesmaids dresses can be a dangerous game. You want trendy dresses your bridal party will love without having to break the bank. But at the same time, the dresses can't overshadow your own dress for the big day. You also need to take into account the different heights, shapes, busts, and butts of your wedding squad. No two bodies are created equal, so you need to find the perfect dress that flatters everyone. Check out the best bridesmaid dresses for any body shape and height.
