I LOVE them. VS makes them and you can also get them on etsy. I think they are the perfect Bridesmaid or Best Man dress

My bridesmaids are wearing the convertible dress from Victoria’s Secret. They love them! The only thing I would say is get double sided lingerie tape JUST in case! You don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions!

I have a conversity/infinity/chameleon dress (dress of as-many-names-as-styles, haha) from Isadora Clothing, on etsy. I love it! They have a lot more color, cut and fabric options than most retailers of these dresses, and seem to have frequent sales. 🙂

They even have a wedding gown option!

Check out “Two Birds”

These dresses are beautiful. You can get them custom order or regular. The only downfall is they are a little pricy, but gorgeous none the less! They will even send you a color swatch before you order (they’ll send a few actually!) and there are many colors to choose from.

I’ve seen a bride use the Butter by Nadia dress. It looked gorgeous on every bridesmaid and it actually seems like a dress you COULD wear again.

I absolutely second the double stick tape, though it doesn’t help as much if you are dancing and sweating!  I wore a convertible dress at my bachelorette party, I was testing it out to see if we wanted to use it for the BMs and I had a total wardrobe malfunction and put on quite the show when the fabric slipped out of place!   I have since found other ways to wear it with no issues but um, yeah, I would avoid the one-shoulder look if you are going to be dancing and moving around a lot and stick to a look that provides more coverage and use some tape! 

I wouldn’t NOT use them, because again, I’ve found other ways to wear is that are more secure, but definitely test it out and move around like crazy unless you want your boobs to make a special appearance!

I have heard of dresses like these, but never seen them…WOWZERS!  I will be ordering one just to see how easy the different styles are, and then quite possibly get it in other colours.  I will absolutely use these for my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!!

My BMs wore convertible dresses. They were identical to the two birds bridesmaid ones but about half the price, from Kookai. My sister’s baby was born 5 weeks before the wedding so we needed something that could accommodate any sort of body shape. She was able to fit a full maternity bra underneath – it can be done!

These are pics of my friend’s wedding, they used the henkaa dress and loved it. I own one too and a cool trick i learned if you still want to use a strapless bra (instead of the stickies because yes, I like to dance a LOT and sweat!) is to tuck the back part of the dress over the bra and the secure it by wrapping the strap around it again. I noticed they posted videos for different styles so hopefully that helps!

This one is really cute! I have heard that they can be hard to tie, though. Good thing this brand has videos.

I love this dress…I don’t think it would work for my wedding party but I am seriously considering getting it in black.  It would be like a bunch of LBD’s in one! So cool!

I can’t stand these dresses, they are definiatly not for every body type.  I tried one on at a hostess party and it was god awful, but it look great on my tall super skinny friend (I am not fat just short and square).  They would be best on younger skinny girls.  And sorry, but in alot of the pics I have seen either the nipples are showing, breast are sagging or half the breast is hanging out from the post I have read it may be that they were not shown some of the tricks that you have all mentioned.
