After talking about the different types of fabrics that have to be decided when choosing a bridal gown or bridesmaid dress. The fabric of the bridesmaid dress bridesmaids choose will have a huge impact on the overall feel and atmosphere of the wedding.
Satin is the second most popular fabric choice for our bridesmaid dresses. It is smooth and soft to the touch, and usually quite lightweight. It tends to drape with the body, meaning it’s good for form-fitting styles, and it has a lot of movement (think twirling on the dance floor). Most satin has a subtle sheen, meaning it will catch the light slightly. Satin is best for formal or nighttime weddings. It should be avoided for events that will be held in high heat, as it shows sweat easily.

It’s a supportive fabric that works with every body type and is a good choice for ruched, draped, and ballgown styles.
