Has anyone used convertible bridesmaid dresses? Basically one dress that you can twist and tie into several different looks. I like the idea because in theory every bridesmaid could find a style that she felt comfortable in and she could also use later. I’m just wondering if anyone has actually tried this. I’m afraid it will feel like you are wearing a towel that is not very secure.

I really wish there was some real pictures of this dress. I am also wondering how it looks on.

@sironel: They looked lovely.
I wanted to get my BMs this dress but VS didn’t have the color that I wanted and Dessy was too expensive.
I am thinking about buying myself one as for the rehearsal.

I have seen these at a few weddings, and I really like the different ways that the BMs can alter it for their own preference and comfort level.
I found this pic on Style me Pretty (go to Wedding Inspiration and under Photo Gallery, click on Bridesmaids Dresses). These are TwoBirds Bridesmaid dresses (kinda pricey).
Victoria Secrets makes them too, with either an A-line skirt or a ruched pencil skirt. In a wedding, all the BMs had the A-line version (styled differently) and the Maid/Matron of Honor had the pencil skirt version. I think it’s a great idea and something the BMs can wear again potentially.

They practiced a couple times before, but then just decided the day of.

Did those of you who wore them feel comfortable and secure in them? Also I don’t understand how its one size fits all, how would my size 0P bridesmaid and my 16 tall bridesmaid will fit in the same dress?

@Snowy414: Ours were definitely NOT one size fits all — VS has xs, s, m, l, xl and they bought accordingly. Yes they felt secure in them. and comfortable, but there was also some double sided tape involved for the bustier girls. One girl had hers hemmed, but you can adjust the length with the way you wrap as well.

I love the concept of convertible dresses!
Twobirds, Dessy, a couple Etsy sellers, VS and American Apparel all have them.
I had decided on the VS Convertible Ruched version. The fabric was VERY see through and kinda hoochy. Had we had enough time we would have ordered one of the regular VS Convertible to test. But no time so we ended up going with something else.
I do love it though!
One of the Bees bridesmaid wore convertible dresses as well. can’t remember which one though.
The convertible dress has become quite popular in the last year or so.
Try searching also for Infinity Dress.
Oh btw in terms of styles most of the sites list suggested ways of wearing it with tutorials.

This is who I’m going to be getting my girls’ through:
She’s going to start offering long lengths in December, and these are most reasonably priced I could find. If you look at her page she has lots of pictures of real bridesmaids wearing the dresses, and you can also look at her feedback (her reviews) to get an idea of what people think!

My girls are going to order theirs from http://www.henkaa.com/convertible-dresses/
I ordered color swatches first and they just came in yesterday… so excited! They are super excited because they are getting a color they will wear again and they look super flattering.. I hope! I was looking at the dessy one but this one was a bit cheaper and look as good. I’ll post pics once we get them in.

My girls wore the chocolate brown flirty convertible dresses from Victoria’s Secret. As you can see from the jumping picture, they felt comfortable enough that they’d stay in place! And they fit all different body types. As PP’s have said, VS comes in xs, s, m, l and xl, so my girls just ordered accordingly.

My BM’s have the VS Flirty Multiway dress for their dress too and I’m glad for this thread. 🙂 I had them try it on this weekend and it was definitely interesting seeing how the dress actually looked as they tried different styles in person versus just looking at the website and such. 🙂 Thx for sharing!
