Has anyone had their bridesmaids order convertible dresses either on etsy or another online site?
Was it easy to convert the tops?
Were there any issues with the dresses?
Any advice would be helpful.

Im looking at ordering them for my BMade dresses…

I saw a couple reviews on TK and they weren’t good ones.

I have 2 (1 from being a bridesmaid, and 1 I purchased on my own), and my bridesmaids chose to get them as well (They are from all over the place, so it was easier to do this than have them try dresses in their respective countries/cities).
We tried on dresses at Henkaa (http://www.henkaa.com/), they have a large variety of colours (however, not the colour we needed), and are very reasonably priced.
I purchased one dress from VonVonni (http://www.vonvonni.com/index.php/transformer.html) but the material is a little rough and a little too thin for my liking (I have it in Coral, and need to wear a slip with it). I ordered this blindly via a groupon coupon.
The other one I own and where my BM’s ordered their dresses for our wedding is Twobirds Bridesmaid (http://twobirdsbridesmaid.ca/). They are on the pricy side, but their dresses are super soft and comfortable and look dressy. I have Jasmine, and the girls ordered Kelly Green, and I just found out that they also do custom colours.
I know that Dessy also has convertable dresses, but you have to find a salon that carries them and has colour swatches on hand or just order blindly.
My mom’s concern was the ability to wear a bra or what to do for busty girls. Henkaa and Twobirdsbridesmaid also sell Bandeaus that one wears under the dress to provide more coverage and allowing one to wear a strapless bra. If you didn’t want one of these bandeaus, Henkaa also sells backless bras (I have one from La Vie en Rose, but haven’t worn it yet).
Hope this helps.

Another vote for convertable dresses here!
My BMs loved them. We got them from The Radical Thread on Etsy. The nice thing about buying them off Etsy is most sellers make them custom to your measurements, so your BMs don’t need to worry about getting them fitted.
We got tube tops to match, but my BMs ended up not wearing them. They did, however, totally abuse my MoH’s stash of backless stick-on bras and double-sided “fashion tape”. But they all looked great and loved them and I totally recommend them!
