Q. My bridesmaids are all different shapes and sizes – how do I find a style that they're all comfortable in?

A. Lilia and Snezhana says: In this situation, you might want to consider bespoke dresses. If you're worried about budget, have a chat with your bridesmaids to see if they're happy to buy the material and you cover the costs of having the garment made. After all, it's important to have happy, confident bridesmaids rather than compromising on a dress that's not perfect.

You can still follow a colour scheme, but you can then opt for different designs to suit each bridesmaid. Carefully consider the fabric you choose as some people prefer classic, plain styles whereas some will like a colourful, bold pattern. Having gowns made-to-measure means you can step away from the traditional uniform look, and instead go for a contemporary mis-matched approach, making all your best girls feel special and comfortable.
