I love the idea of these, but my dress will be taffeta with a rhinestone kind of sash thing going on…is it okay for my bridesmaids to be so much less formal? If not, what kind of fabric should their dresses be?
Oh, you wanted to see a picture of my dress? Okay!

Maybe the stretch satin? I really love those dresses! I want to make one for a friemd’s wedding!

Stretch satin for the convertible dresses? I haven’t seen that option yet. I ordered one that is a type of jersey, I think…just to see if I liked it.

i think your bridesmaids should be in a bit more formal fabric than just the jersey fabric of the convertibles. do they make them in other fabrics? a dressier one??

I think Jersey would be too informal. I have also seen those dresses look bad on some ladied who were more “full figured”. It would be wise to have them all try them on first. There is not a lot of support in them and they can highlight flaws…

@sweetpeony: I second this. The dresses are not the most flattering on everyone, and they offer no support for large chested ladies. Maybe you could find some they could try on to make sure they would look good?

I second the stretch satin convertible dress. I honestly didn’t know that they didn’t all come in satin.

You really have to be careful when choosing who you buy your dresses from. I was a bridesmaid last month and we got ours from Henkaa, the quality is great and they have a subtle sheen that makes them look really classy! Henkaa also offers a C/D size for women size 14 and up, so they can be flattering on everybody! They’re made with lots of fabric so they don’t cling.

I ordered one from a company to check it out. I am a size small in the dress, but according to the measurements so are most of my bridesmaids. My one friend is always surprising me by wearing much larger sizes than I do! But I will check it out and see if we like the way it drapes. Otherwise I guess we’ll get chiffon…which is not so bad, cause I like it. =)

@PinkGoddess: Oooh, I’ve always wondered about their quality. I second the idea that they should be shiny instead of jersey :).

My convertibles were some kind of awesome stretch jersey-ish material but it was a little shimmery and more formal than jersey if that makes any sense. I thought they looked awesome on all 4 of my maids and they all really loved being able to customize.
