@tiffytraxler88:  I think its a very flattering dress and would work with all body types! Great pick!

I think that dress is adorable!

I went to Banana Republic and bought my girls’ dresses from the clearance rack (for $17 each!). I only had 2 girls, but the dresses were available in sizes 2-16 and there were more than 10 available. If you want something like that, try shopping between Christmas and New Years, and then after New Years to get the good clearance deals.

Your dresses are super cute!!! I like….show your girls and have them try them on for the final yay or nay.

I hear you! I thought my dress was hard, but I hemmed and hawed about the girls’ dresses. I just had a tough time saying, here, buy this dress, wear it, and like it!

That said, I think the dress you chose is cute, fun and different!

Great choice! The “flowy” style is flattering on many body types! I had the same type of issue, because I wanted all of my bridesmaids to feel beautiful and comfortable – I ended up going to Davids Bridal and finding a color and material that I loved, and let them choose the style of dress!

I see that most of the ladies above me agree that it would be flattering, but I one thing to point out. And I guess it’s not so much that it wouldn’t look good, i’m just worried that all your BMs will not feel comfortable. Is the length at all negotiable? Like maybe to right below the knee? As a slightly bigger girl, I am not a fan of my knees, or calves for that matter. I am extremely self conscious of my knees and would be devastated to find out I had to wear something above the knee. If none of your BMs have problems with their knees or calves, the dress will work great. Does that make sense?

Are all of your bridesmaids small busted? That back is cute but it would never work on someone like me (size 10, fully D cup size) because it looks like you can’t even wear a strapless bra with it, and low-back calliloneliness bras don’t offer enough support.  That would be my concer if I were a bridesmaid. The front is great…but the back wont suit any girl that needs to wear a supportive bra.

completely understood, maybe your sister could just order hers with a little extra length- they do that, right? Then she could have it hemmed at a length you both agree on and all is good! Good luck!

Its better than strapless for bigger or more self conscious girls, though if I was bm I’d ve concerned about the back and under the waist band (I’m a size 6). As long as they feel comfortable in them, that’s the main thing. They are lovely btw 🙂
