Have you looked at Butter by Nadia:
I just went to a wedding where the bridesmaids all wore these dresses (they did the short jersey ones, but the also have long ones in jersey & silk), the bridesmaids were all shapes and sizes and every one looked great in their dress.

I second twobirdsbridesmaid… My BMs wore those (or something identical but half the price, yay!) They were perfect for all figures, including my sister who’d had a baby 5 weeks before the wedding.
Also try searching infinity dress on etsy for some variations:
Or even google infinity dress instructions – they’re really easy to DIY! Here’s a good set of instructions to show how easy it is:

http://www.henkaa.com/ has more colors than Victoria’s Secret, and is similarly priced, much less than Two Birds!

I’d be careful with some of these dresses–A-line styles are generally your most flattering cut. On a woman who’s a 22, she may not appreciate the body-hugging slimmer skirt styles. Also, you cannot wear a bra with most of those convertible styles. I wanted one SO bad, but i’m a 36DD/E and um, my boobs would look AWFUL and nasty in a dress like that, just sagging around, haha. So keep in mind the kind of styles they can wear with the dress; otherwise it may just be ultra-frustrating.

Check out Elise Bergman! She’s a Chicago-based designer and she makes great wrap dresses that can be worn a few different ways. She has an online shop, although it’s down right now, the rest of her website including galleries of the bridesmaid collections and Fall collection are still up. She works out of a cute boutique called Roslyn in Wicker Park. Not sure if you saw my engagement photos, but she designed the skirt that I wore.
This is a picture from her website of one of the wrap/convertible options.

Have you seen the dresses by The Jersey Maid on Etsy?
They have bandeaus for more coverage too…
They are $98 and orders of 4 or more qualify for a wholesale discount.

Target is now in the convertible dress business. They all seem to be A-line. They have both long and tea length styles. Here’s a link to their bridesmaid dresses page. You can see all the colors there.

My girls are wearing convertible dresses from etsy, too! I used http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoralieBeatrix. I own one of her dresses and it is amazing! The fabric is really nice and machine washable without being cheap looking.
These are the dresses we’re using:

I want to order the wrap dress from Jersey Maid but I’m worried because she does not allow returns or exchanges. Have you been happy with the materia, quality and hem? Thanks
