Let's face it - we all have parts of our bodies we're not so happy with.
Even supermodels like Cara Delevigne and Miranda Kerr.
The trick is to accentuate the good and camouflage the not so good. So if you're blessed with gorgeous long legs then show them off. Wish you had a bit more up top? Then choose a neckline that flatters what you do have and doesn't make you look flat-chested.
When it comes to choosing dresses for your bridesmaids this advice is particularly important as those wedding photographs are going to be around for a good few years to come.
I've written before on how crucial it is to make sure your bridesmaids are happy with what they're wearing - you don't want to force your best girlfriends into frocks that they feel don't do anything for them.
So what would suit your girls? Well, it all depends on their figures.
Flattery will get you everywhere
Let's think about necklines.
If one of your girls has a small bust then you should both look at halter neck bridesmaid dresses - which take attention away from the bustline.

Dessy has a variety of halter neck bridesmaid styles, in both cocktail and evening length and then there's the Twist Wrap dress which could be tied halter style.
Mind you, girls with a full bust and broad shoulders should avoid halter necks as they'll look larger. Instead they should investigate scoop necklines which accentuate a larger bosom in all the right ways.
