    I like both options, but the Noir definitely looks too low at the back to wear a bra.  Solely based on this, I would absolutely go for the Jenny Yoo.  If I couldn’t wear a bra with a bridesmaid dress I would be so uncomfortable for the entire wedding, and would be counting down the minutes until I could go home and get out of that dress.  It would not be a wedding that I would remember favourably!

    The Lazaro is definitely more elegant- I love it! Even the train! But your busty bridesmaid probably won’t be happy with that back. I just experienced major drama with my older sister because she is very busty and couldn’t fit her tatas into any of the sample dresses. I thought that by letting them choose their own style it would be the easiest way to make everyone (mostly) happy! Unfortunately there were still issues but I can only imagine the drama that would have gone down if I had picked the same dress for all BMs!

    The first one is more formal in my opinion. Chiffon looks more casual to me. I’m doing a black tie wedding as well, all of the girls are picking out their own full length black gowns. Just an idea- but its working out really well for me!

    crackktheskyy:  I think the first would work with sewn-in cups if it’s as fitted and structured as it looks.  I’m not one that can skip the bra on any day but with my wedding dress I had cups sewn in and the dress was fitted enough on top to make that work.  But you did mention that the dress is more flowey than it looks in the photo so if the bust is also flowey and not structured then that might not be a solution.

    I’ve always loved the Jenny Yoo Aiden but it has a more casual feel to me.  Ooo but I’m thinking, if you covered the waist-band with a sparkley belt or even a black satin ribbon that would dress it up to bring it to more of a black tie level.  I think that would be gorgeous, as is the first dress, so either way you go will look great.  You have awesome taste!

    crackktheskyy:  maybe use part of the train fabric on the 1st one to put across the back so the bustier girls could wear a regular bra? You could sew a panel on the back or just a thin strap that would cover the bra.

    I, too, love the formal attire idea. I love anything classy, glamorous and elegant. I agree that a wrong color, fabric or fit could “cheapen” the overall look that you’re going for. However…

    I LOVE the Jenny Yoo mixed dresses and the charcoal color still looks very very much elegant IMO. I have a feeling your BMs will look happier, feel more comfortable and won’t be tugging or adjusting at the tops of their gowns all day/evening/night.
