2 of my bridesmaids are top-heavy so strapless and spaghetti straps won’t cut it. Does anything like this exist or would we have to design something ourselves and have it custom-made by a local seamstress?
Also, they feel more comfortable in long dresses.

I know strapless is really popular right now, but I’m sure most lines carry some dresses with straps and keep in mind that a dress may be pictured in tea length but may come in floor length as well. My bridesmaids dresses were from B2 and they had straps. I went with tea length but it also comes in floor length. I’ll attach a picture so you can see. I’m not sure if you like this dress or if it’d work for your bridesmaids, but if not just keep looking, I’m sure there’s something out there! Good luck!

Yes. J-crew has some super cute ones. I have all of my girls in the same color/fabric but they each have a different style. They come in a ton of colors also. These are mine. They look beautiful on and are of great high quality fabric. Check them out http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/WeddingParties/Wedding_Bridesmaid/dresses.jsp’ defer=’defer I tried to post pics but the jcrew site wouldn’t let me save pics for some reason.

I think both Aria and Simple Silhouettes make some really cute options. Good luck!

my sister was very picky when it came to her dress! god blessed her in the large chest department so she also needs straps for support, and she isn’t comfortable showing leg. we ended up getting their dresses from anthropology and jc penny (obviously we didn’t go for matching.)

i have seen lots of great dresses that have straps. What is your budget? What colors are you looking for? Have you checked out Thread & Coren Moore? They have some really cute dresses that have really nice necklines that might work for your girls.

Yes, our gals all picked the cut they liked, and two were not strapless. These were all Alfred Sung (and all under $140).

Thread has some cute ones, so does JCrew. What’s your price range?

A girl on my local knot board got adorable dresses from Priscilla of Boston (I think?). Here is a photo from her photographers’ sneak peak blog post:

Thanks for the links. Will check those out. Preferably don’t want to spend more than $200-250 if possible.

Dessy!! Some of my girls actually like strapless (while the rest decidedly do not) so I got two dresses that were similar (both matte satin with lace overlays), one that was strapless (spaghetti straps optional), and one that has cap sleeves (so there is a lot of support). They have a lot of different kinds of styles you can do that with, and even more that are just dresses that have straps. And many of the tea and cocktail length dresses can be ordered full length. http://www.dessy.com

Thread has some adorable ones! I’m letting my ladies pick whichever one they want from the thread party line. The only parameters I have are it has to be a black one and knee length. I also might say same fabric choice, but I’m not sure.
Here are lots and lots of supercute dress options.
Hope this helps!

Check out the Impressions line. We just ordered ours from that line and with nice wide straps so the girls can wear a regular bra. We had the same issue as well because they are both top heavy as well.
