    The one-shoulder style can be very difficult to pull off, even if you’re small-framed. I like the color, but I think the style would be unflattering.

    I LOVE the color and the overall style but I really don’t like the style of the one shoulder. Not the one shoulder look, just this particular one. To me, it’s too thick and I dont like how it comes across the chest. I have broad shoulders and I can’t wear too thick of straps or it just doesn’t look good. Sorry 🙁 Is there a similar dress in the collection?

    Very pretty, but tough position for you. How would you feel if your Maid/Matron of Honor wore the same fabric, different style?

    I like the dress, but it’s not for everyone and if your Maid/Matron of Honor really does not like it, you shouldn’t force her to wear it.

    Cute dress; however, I would not wear it. It would look horrible on my body type.

    I don’t think it would look good on me.  Plus it kind of reminds me of a toga.

    @DTF1983: Yeah, it would be a hard dress to pull off if you are busty. I do like purple as a theme. What color is your dress?

    I dont love it. I can see this being a very body-type specific dress. May not work for everyone.

    I think it all comes down to what they prefer. I am letting all of my girls pick out their dress as long as its my pink. It’s a great idea and plus they’ll absolutely wear it again.

    I think it depends on what it looks like on everyone.

    Does the same designer make another style that you like from the same fabric?  Maybe pick 2-3 styles that you like and let your girls choose from those.  Or maybe just let your Maid/Matron of Honor wear a different dress from the other girls (not unheard of).
