Dress Length 101

Long, short or somewhere in-between? Find the perfect length of bridesmaid dress with this definitive guide.


Short & Sweet

For a low-key city wedding or relaxed destination wedding, shorter bridesmaid dresses like our Savannah Soft Midi Dress are just the thing. Pretty and feminine, the casual length works brilliantly for more laidback weddings and they can be worn for other events.

The Mid-Point

Between maxi and mini lies the midi (sometimes referred to as “tea length”). While there’s no definitive length for midi dresses, they usually fall to the calf for a feminine, and flattering, silhouette.

Maximum Style

Planning an elegant and sophisticated wedding? Consider maxi bridesmaid dresses. Our Odetta Lace Maxi Dress, with its lace bodice and floor-length skirt, is ideal for a traditional church wedding.
