An A-line dress with an Empire waist will also suit most figures.

3. Make a statement - go for a complete mix and match with fabric and style, but have the same overall color scheme. Think about a navy and white theme for example. If you have 4 bridesmaids have one in navy and white stripes, one in dots, one in a navy dress with a white sash and another in a dress with a white top and a navy skirt.

4. If your wedding is more about the fun of the event that the formalities, then why not reflect this with beach bridesmaids dresses that captures spirit of summer. Choose a printed fabric or opt for a sundress style. Also keep in mind that shorter dresses tend to be less formal as well.
