    32 Satin Bridesmaid Dresses You Might *Actually* Wear Again

    The best "thank you" a bride can give is a bridesmaid dress their friends can wear over and over again.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A plain and simple (and stunning) satin cowl neck dress with a fit that everyone will love and look fantastic in. It comes in over 20 colors, too! So, you'll have no issues finding that *very* specific tone of pink, green, or purple you're looking for.

    Get it from David's Bridal for $149.95 (originally $169.95; available in sizes 0–30 and in 26 colors).

    2. one-shoulder cocktail dress featuring the most gorgeous tulip hem. This is *definitely* a bridesmaid dress that can be worn for fancy dinner/date night, too, which I'm sure the entire bridal party will appreciate!

    Promising review: "Beautiful, flowy dress; I ordered for my future mother in law for my island wedding, and when I say she received so many compliments on the dress!!! For the price, you cannot go wrong; nice soft material, NOT see through, and perfect for any occasion!!! Highly recommended purchasing!!!" —DeShun

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 24 colors)

    3. An off-the-shoulder number with an extra high slit, a train, *and* a corset-tie back to add some oomph to a typical bridesmaid dress. After the wedding, I can definitely picture this beaut being worn to a gala or fancy soirée. 

    BTW, reviewers suggest sizing up!

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful, beautiful dress!!!! I got the burgundy, and the color is beautiful; the fit is amazing. It is a heavy dress, meaning not made with some cheap satin fabric. It doesn't feel like a cheap dress, it has lining as well, and it is very well-made. The design and the cut of this dress is nice for any body type. It has the corset tie on the back, and that makes it look amazing on anyone. I can't say enough good things about this dress. I didn't expect it to be so well-made with such a good thick fabric and such an amazing fit. ... I would want to buy this dress in every color they offer it. That’s how beautiful and amazing this dress is!!!" —m.k. usa

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in sizes 2–26 and in 36 colors)

    4. A twist-front halter dress made of flowy satin material and a halter neckline (the perfect combo for special events IMO). It's elegant and a definite wear-it-again type of gown!

    5. A Show Me Your Mumu dress with nearly every reviewer calling it their new favorite! It's got an easily adjustable tie-strap, a comfy and stretchable smocked back, and comes in lots (and I mean *lots*) of gorgeous tones... what's not to love?

    Promising review: "My favorite dress. I’ve never had a dress fit me THIS well! I absolutely love it. Bought it as a reception/dancing/leaving dress for my wedding, and I loved it so much I’m going to be buying it in other colors to wear as a guest to other weddings!" —Olivia M.

    Get it from Show Me Your Mumu for $188 (available in sizes XXS—3X and in 29 colors/patterns).

    6. A strapless satin dress because it's sweet, simple, and just plain classy. There's no way this dress will overshadow the bride's gorgeous gown, but every bridesmaid will still feel like a 10.

    Get it from Meshki for $105 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in five colors).

    7. A satin wrap dress that's so beautiful, I plan on getting one for myself just because. But as a bridesmaid dress, it'll add comfort to the big day for sure...especially after being in heels for hours!

    Whimsy + Row

    8. A cool mini satin skater dress with pockets (!!), stretchy material, and a gorgeously designed neckline to pull it all together. If long gowns aren't what you picture for your bridal party, this is the perfect choice!

    Reviewers say there's padding in the bust area, so no bra needed with dress. There's also tulle underneath the skirt to keep the poofy volume. Love! 😍

    Promising review: "I can't put into words what this dress is...I felt like a princess, seriously. You can even twirl in it. The material is soooooo silky, yet stretchy, and the color...omg...died and went to hot pink heaven. Buy it...wear it grocery shopping...with hot pink won't regret a dime..." —TeddyB

    Get it from Torrid for $90.67 (originally $139.50; available in sizes 10–30 and in pink and black). 

    9. Lulus' top-rated satin ruffle maxi featuring sleeves that hang off the shoulder in the most elegant way. It's a wrap design, too, which means easy and customizable adjusting so that it fits each bridesmaid just right!

    Promising reviews: "The perfect bridesmaid dress. This dress is so incredibly comfortable! I love that you can make it as loose or tight as you like (I definitely loosened it after the wedding feast). The color and fit are exactly what you see in the photos. The top fabric is silky and gorgeous; there are two layers. It is long, but I didn't need any altering when I put heels on." —Allison L.

    "ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I got this for a formal event, and I felt amazing in it! I got so many compliments, and it reminded me (and several others) of Hermione's Yule Ball dress! Highly recommend it." —Tabitha P.

    Get it from Lulus for $69 (available in sizes XS–XL and in five colors).

    10. A gorge one-shoulder gown no bridesmaid will ever give you the *cold shoulder* for making them wear. I mean, with that long flowy skirt and side slit, how could they not love it?

    Promising reviews: "This dress is so beautiful. It's flowy, comfortable, and fit nicely. I got lots of compliments at a wedding I attended." —RD

    Get it from Amazon for $31.44 (originally $48.99; available in sizes S–XXL and in 28 colors/patterns — including spring florals!). 

    11. An all-over ruffle gown complete with a deep V neckline, adjustable straps, and a radiant green color that somehow works perfectly in the middle of the day and in the middle of the night. All the bridesmaids will be obsessed!

    12. A midi-length satin dress with a cowl neck because it's definitely something your bridesmaid will want to wear again. It's simple yet stunning, and will look great on everyone!

    FYI there are TONS of pregnant reviewers that are obsessed with the amount of stretch this dress has. 

    Promising reviews: "Very comfortable and easy to maneuver in. I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in my sister’s wedding and it looks fire on me! Buy the dress." —Kaya Balom

    "BUY THIS DRESS!!!... The material was thick and great quality! It is very well made and true to color... I wore this dress to [an event] and turned heads ALL NIGHT!!! Everyone complimented me on this dress from the fit, the color, and the style. People could not believe i got this dress from Amazon! TMI: I wore a thong shaper under and you could not see the panty lines at all! Thats how thick and well made this dress is. I walked quite a bit and the dress did not move around too much. Im also a heavy sweater and not once did any sweat appear on the dress in my usual sweaty areas. Buy this dress and in multiple colors!!!" —B.Rob

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 35 colors and styles).

    13. A luxe corset gown that's trendy yet timeless, and we all need this in our closets ASAP. Just picture this for a garden wedding in the spring... Perfect, right!?

    Get it from Anthropologie for $415 (available in sizes 0–18 and four colors).

    14. A versatile tie-strap satin gown some reviewers decided to wear as a halter-neck, too! And with all the color options available, you can mix things up with a pastel color-way, a dark and glamorous theme, and more.

    Promising review: "After ordering, the seller reached out to ask my event date to make sure the dress shipped in time. I received it a few days early, and after  steaming out the wrinkles (there’s so much fabric!), this dress was just stunning. The entire night, my friends and colleagues remarked how gorgeous it was, and I felt like a Hollywood starlet who had just stepped off the red carpet! The sizing was great, and the way the bodice laces up the back means that it easily accommodates a modest bust or a more voluptuous figure." —Jessi Bruton

    Get it from Amazon for $58.99+ (available in sizes 0–22 and in 31 colors).

    15. A backless dress with a high slit that'll have your bridesmaids literally strutting down the aisle like its New York Fashion Week! The satin material and long flowy hem make it perfect for a spring or summer wedding.
