Those look so neat.  I am going to look into them because I want my BMs to be wearing the same color but whatever style they feel most comfortable in.

I wore something similar as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I think it was a differnt brand and there was not a long option. It was perfect for the destination wedding I wore it in. There were 4 of us and we all found a different way to tie it although I was pretty boring and wore it as a strapless dress, there are many creative ways to tie them. I have since worn mine as a skirt and a beach cover up and even recommended it to another bride. In hindsight, a very good choice for an outdoor wedding although not formal IMO.

@slicey19:  Oh, it wasn’t formal?  Was it because of the material?

Oh! I just saw these online, but I think it was a different brand. I pretty much fell in love with them since I’m thinking about having my aunt, and two teenage cousins in my bridal party, and it would be perfect for them to each have their own different style.

Plus to me, the whole wearing it again factor on these is awesome.

I think that’s what I want to do, but haven’t been able to find a price that I’m willing to ask them to pay. I love these dresses…saw them while Facebook stalking a friend’s wedding and fell in love. Any suggestions?

I originally was going to have my girls get the Two Birds dresses (the most famous infinity dress in the Bridesmaid or Best Man circuit). but they start at $250ish. 

the other day I came across an etsy dealer, katesy, who makes these at a far more reasonable price – starting at $99-150. so I’ve been talking to her and hopefully the quality, etc is comparable bc I LOVED the TB dresses. 

i know victoria’s secret also has an infinity dress but their colors are limited. if you’re doing a pretty basic color tho (black, etc) it’s a good option. i own an infinity dress from Tart that I wear ALL the time, but again they didn’t have the color I was looking for for my girls. 

hopefully the etsy dress works out! i’ll keep you posted.

@missmarchmommy:

My bridesmaids and I looked at these dresses.  We couldn’t find samples to try on, so we went to American Apparel and tried on their version.  These are not dresses for people who have a chest size bigger than an A cup!  Most of the styles need to be worn braless or with sticky cups.  All of my bridesmaid are D cups or higher and this dress was a mess! Also, my sister felt like it did nothing to hide the parts of her body that she wasn’t happy with.  If you (if you plan to buy this dress for yourself) and your bridesmaids are not slim with a small chest then there are a very limited number of ways to wear it.  This dress is limited to the body type of girl in the pictures….sadly 🙁

If you are still looking for cheaper version there are a couple places to try.  1) American Apparel 2)Etsy (search: convertible dress) or 3)make it yourself

Hope that helps!

My girls wore these, and while they looked cute and they got tons of compliments @Nicoso: is right, they are not that great for larger chests, however they are workable, so while it was harder with large chests, and took longer to put them together they still worked and looked cute. Also I should say I actually got ours from Avon and they were only $20 each (score!) but was  planning on using them regardelss and it just worked out that I found a random cheap one.I will post a photo, you can get an idea of the chest situation…

I’m considering getting one of these for myself! I found another brand the other day that makes the same dresses, Henkaa http://www.henkaa.com/

They look nice and there are women of all sizes wearing them in their gallery. They even have a tube top to go with your dress if you want a bit more modesty.

I used convertible dresses!

They’re from etsy seller Coralie Beatrix and she was AMAZING to work with. These dresses were around 100 dollars
