It would help if you posted a picture or link.

As with all dresses, the answer to your question depends on the dress in particular.  Some will come undone easily, smoe will be secure.  Some are too clingy, some are not.  Some can be worn with normal bras, some not.  It depends on the particular design, the quality, the fabric, etc.

In general I think that wrap dresses are a fairly versitile choice and, if good quality, should work well.  But also keep in mind that if you have a large number of BMs you will not please everyone.  Heck, even if you let them choose their own dresses you will probably not please everyone (since some BMs prefer to just be told what to wear or to be matching).  So do your best, then make peace with the fact that not everyone will be happy.  Hopefully all will be gracous enough to not mention it 😀

I went with Infinity dresses for my bridesmaids, they were sucha bargain and I like how they can wear them in their unique style but the color/fabric is all the same. I also went with floor length dresses so they dont have to worry about buying identical shoes. My bridesmaid have different body types but nothing too dramatic. I have a pic of me in the dress…I love it and want one for the honeymoon haha!

 

I got it from Vanel Designs on etsy but she is LA based so she and I actually met in person when I gave her the checks and she brought the dresses to me. I highly recommend her work.

Panda13:  Aww thanks! I wonder if one of the girls will let me take their dress to Cancun for the honeymoon haha! It was really easy to wrap around even by myself although I did do redo it to make it tighter so it would be more flattering. It staying up wasnt a problem because there is soo much fabric to wrap around – but i almost always wear strapless dresses so it’s just normal for me! If it was harder there is always fashion tape.

As for being clingy you can see how nice and flowly the skirt portion of the dress is – which is what makes me love it!

ps iIwas not wearing anything underneath it in that picture but you could easily wear a strapless bra with it wrapped that way.

The bridesmaids loved the price to! Came out to only $71 and some change for each of my 5 bridesmaids! The seller offered buy 4 get 1 free…but i do not reccomend the matching ties as they look too blah.

Jersey is a tough fabric to pull off. If any of your girls isn’t slim, it might not look great. Shows every lump And bump!
