    I think I halter or thin straps would be best.. I don’t think it would stay up if it was left strapless… she is 10 and I am assuming not very developed.

    Also I think the back is too low for a 10year old…
    Does she have to wear the same dress?

    My opinion is that it looks really mature for a 10 year old.. maybe do a different style in the same colour?

    I think a halter neck is a good idea. I was actualy a bridesmaid at around that age, and i remember being really dissapointed when my dress was completely different from the ‘big girls’s dresses’! Definitely try and make the dress the same colour, and with a halterneck, she can still have basically the same back. If your keeping the bow at the back, definitely give her one too! hope that gives you an incite. 🙂

    Pretty dress but not appropriate for a 10 yr old at all. Her dress doesn’t have to match theirs but it should be age-appropriate. I would at the very least add cap sleeves. It’s unfortunate that the mother doesn’t care enough to protect her daughter’s modesty or well-being and is potentially setting her up (in other occasions as well) to fall prey to pedophiles, so someone has to step in and take over that role because she’s unwilling to. Unless the 10 yr old is 5’7, 110lbsm which hardly any are, then you (or her mother, whom it sounds like isn’t willing to pay for alterations to make the dress appropriate) will spend more on getting the dress altered properly to fit this small child than you will for the dress itself at the dress shop.

    Edited to add: Here’s a few online stores with jr bridesmaid dresses that are much more age-appropriate and available in similar colors:

    I agree with Ember…I don’t think the dress is age-appropriate for a 10 year old. As much as she wants to “look like the big girls” the truth is….she’s not a big girl. I think that an age-appropriate dress in the same color would work.

    I think either halter or thin straps would be great!

    I agree that the dress is NOT age appropriate for a 10 year old.  Even with cap sleeves, it’s still just too iffy.  I know David’s sells junior bm dress, find one in the same color that you like an go with it.

    Oh and FI’s daughter is going to be 10 at our wedding and she is going to be my jr bm and there is NO way on earth that we’d allow her to wear that dress.  Even though you say the mom isn’t conserative, she may be concerned once she sees that dress.

    I would do halter with a 1 inch strap that goes from one shoulder, around her neck, and to the other shoulder.

    I would definitely NOT do thin strap. I don’t think strapless or thin straps is age appropriate. But I also wouldn’t go as far as having cap sleeves.

    I do like the idea of having it A-line instead of trunpet.

    I was a junior bridsmaid at that age and my dress was custom made to look EXACTLY like the grown up girls. (It had thick straps, a-line, and 2 cut-outs on the back with a bow (it was 14 years ago… so a little out dated now but you get the idea.)

    Chartreuse:  Hi, do you by any chance still have the Oasis dress and would you be interested in selling?  I have looked everywhere and can’t find a satin one for my 9 year old daughter!
