The general concensus that I’ve heard is that they look great on skinny minnies but not on any girls that are more curvy. They also won’t work well if you have modest bridesmaids. I thought about them too, but decided against them because I have girls that need to wear a bra.

I think they’re adorable, but JenGirl is right — even if they can be changed a thousand ways, they just don’t look as good on curvy girls. I tried one on when we were picking for my dad’s wedding — I’m 5’8 and a size 6/8 and it looked bad on my curves. I’ve seen it on some others, though, and it looked great on my beautiful, thin friend. So I would say it depends on what your girls’ body types are like.

I wear a 10/12 and have a pretty classic hourglass figure, more or less. My bff is like a 6/8 and….well endowed. My other bff is teeny tiny. I bought them convertible dresses from Coralie Beatrix on Etsy. First, I tried them on. I thought it looked good on me! My teeny bff also tried it on and looked great it in. I think my second friend will also look good. You don’t have to wear them strapless, so I don’t see why you can’t wear a bra w/them. I’m really happy with them & think my friends might actually wear them again.

I have hips and don’t have huge boobs, and I have a convertible dress I love, but I find I don’t like wearing any of the styles where you can’t wear a bra regardless because the material is usually too thin and your nipples can poke out ala Anne Hathaway at the Oscars, lol…I don’t know how thick the matching tube tops are, but it’s something to consider…I only wear mine completely strapless w/ a strapless bra or w/ a tank top and bra under, otherwise I feel like the world is staring at my nips…

Material is so flowy that it shows every curve, buldge and undergarments, I wouldn’t feel comfortable in it and neither would my BM’s.

I got convertible dresses from Madestudio on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/madestudio

I was able to customise the dresses, so they were all made to measure – in four different shades of green – and they all look fantastic.

One of my bridesmaids is pregnant, one is 5ft with broad shoulders and no waist, one is 5’5” and is as skinny as anything and the other is super tall and very curvy.

They all rock the dresses because they can wear them how they like.

Madestudio includes the sewn in ‘boob tube’ bit, so they’re more covered – but it can be rolled down for a different look.

Fully fully recommend them – and really want to get one for myself for my holiday!
