I need some advice, please. I want to buy my bridesmaid dresses, but I also want them to be cheap. Ann Taylor is having an extra 40% off dresses today, and I’m 85% ready to place an order. The only thing holding me back is that they’re final sale. Does anyone have any encouragement, or words of warning for me? I’m going to let the girls pick between the 3 different styles below that are available in that color
They seem so simple that I can’t imagine them being a disaster, and I’m telling the girls to order a little big if they’re unsure, because I know it’s easier to get things taken in than let out. Do you think this will work for me?

@Rockcandy: Well, it sounds like you’re being pretty smart about it actually, since you are going to order a tad bit bigger. On the other hand, if your bmaids are typically true to size when they go shopping it may not be necessary to order bigger. Are you ordering for them, or are they ordering the dresses themselves? Please let me know how it works out for you because I’ve contemplated doing the same thing.

@JoolyBee: I’m ordering for them, but with their input on sizing. I let them read the reviews and make the decision about whether to size up or not. I think Ann Taylor actually runs true to size/slightly big, so most of them seem to be going with their normal size.
I’ll definitely let you know how it works out. My fingers are crossed!

@Rockcandy: I’ve heard that they run true to size! Funny that I ran across this, I ordered the first and second dress in the “radicchio”color today for my 2 BM’s! My fingers are crossed that they work out!! The 49% off was too hard to pass up 🙂

My mom used to work for Ann Taylor and yes, they do run true to size. I say take advantage of the sale! Order a size up just to be safe, and go get the deal!!
