I would probably go DIY… I’m the same way with clothes… I have to try them on ahead of time

I saw a wedding where the girls had matching tube top bathong suit coverup style dresses… I am thinking I’ll do that… so much more practical and something the big boob girls will be ok with

I am not sure about the tank tops for getting ready.  Is everyone getting their hair done that morning?  Because for the most part, everyone I have known, including the hair dressers say to wear button up shirts so that you can just unbutton them and not mess up your hair by pulling a shirt over your head once your hair is done. Below is a link to a plain white racer back tank top for 6.99.  It does have a little lace fabric on it, but not much.  It comes in other colors as well.


Best of luck!

I bought tanks from old navy then bought the iron on’s. I actually told the girls that I was making the tanks for getting ready pictures so that I could get them the size that they wanted. All of my girls had worn stuff from old navy before so they know how they’ll fit. I just felt safer doing it that way. I’d rather be safe than sorry with the sizing. I also bought them robes from weddingprepgals.com for getting ready as well, but they don’t know about those!

I agree with @lifeswonderful2day, button ups are better. Plus, if a Bridesmaid or Best Man is self conscious, those flimsey tank tops are the worst.

@MissMudge:  Definitely do the DIY route. I’m larger myself, and I found when I looked at sizing charts on The Knot and similar websites, they always run smaller than normal. Besides, with the DIY route, you can customize it to your own preferences a bit more.

Im making the tanks for my girls.. I already bought the iron on rhinestones at hobby lobbies and bought the shirts.. If unsure about size just ask them… I did.. Plus it’s so much cheaper to make them then buy… I know a lot of people say you shouldn’t get tanks and to get robes or button down shirts because you don’t want to ruin hair or makeup…in reality how hard is it to take a shirt off… I do it all the time after I’m finish my hair and makeup, trying to change out of what I have on to my actual clothes that I will be wearing and I don’t have problem…makeup is perfect and hair is still looking good.
