I already have my bridesmaid dresses and ordered them 3 months ago. I think you are cutting it a little close with timing but I think the dress is cute and for $45 you can’t go wrong. My girls paid $145.

I think if you’re ‘picky’ about the colour, you should tell them ‘this is the designer, this is the fabric – pick a style’ at the very least.  My girls weren’t able to try their dresses either and they cost quite a bit more than yours, we’re just hoping for the best.  They should be here any day.

Will everyone look good in strapless?  I would HATE to be stuck in a strapless dress. And I am a size 6.   Do you have any plus-sized bridesmaids?  That would definitely not be a flattering look for a plus sized girl…..

I’d make sure they are all ok with strapless, it’s not flattering or comfortable for everyone, and also get a waist-to hem measurement and make sure it’s long enough. That skirt looks like it would be too short on me.

David’s Bridal color Capri is a pretty sky blue, with more options.

saraking:  I think you have done an amazing job finding a dress in your color and at your price point. There are not many Bees who have found such a reasonably priced bridesmaid dress.

There will be concerns about stapless dresses for some figures. This dress is so resonably priced that I would order an extra dress so the fabric could be used to make straps or even cap sleeves for those who wanted them.

I agree with the pp’s to check the length.

I think it’s beautiful and my moh is a plus size and she choose a strapless dress it looks great on her.  Also my sister’s/ bridesmaids are both a size two and it looked great on them also.  That is a great price I say go for it.
