If you search there are several threads about these kinds of dresses. They can work really well for skinny minnie girls but tend not to work great with heavier girls or girls that are more modest.

My bridesmaids and I ultimately decided on dresses from The Radical Thread Co. (http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheRadicalThreadCo?ref=seller_info). They’re a little pricier (by about $20)  than some of the other options out there, but the fabric/color was closer to what I was looking for and they are custom made to fit each girl, so my 5’0″ super-petite BFF doesn’t have to worry about getting her dress shortened like she always does. I haven’t received them yet (we just put in our order not so long ago) but the woman who runs the shop has been really great to work with so far! I think I read some other, older threads here to help me choose a seller because there are so many. One piece of advice I can give you for sure: Order the swatches!

As for how they fit, my same super-petite bridesmaid bought a dress from Coralie Beatrix on Etsy for another wedding she was in–and had to get the dress shortened–and loved it. She did give the other girls a word of caution, though–strapless styles have trouble staying up and so they all decided to get matching tube tops to go under their dresses for my wedding so they can wear bras underneath. None of our wedding party has a chest bigger than a 36B, though, so I can’t tell you how really busty girls fare.

I also recommend the shops with customized dresses and ordering swatches! BL Couture was a dream to work with. the dresses came well within the stated timeframe of 4 weeks (took around 2 weeks for 7 dresses), Bernadette gives volume discounts and reduced shipping when you ship to one address AND the dresses came with complementary tube tops!

 

She also has matching vests for the groomsmen if you need them!
