so i have been trying to find some great Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses for my 2 bridesmaids and i think my top contenders are:
purple lacy dress this also comes in a peach color here
and the other is this crepe wrap dress
i dont have any specific colors picked out we are going with a bright semi-casual “spring” theme. both of my girls are plus size and are… well endowed so being able to wear a nonstrapless bra is a big thing. i think i am leaning more towards the lacy dresses but what do you all think? which one do you think would be more re-wearable? i want them to get the most bang for the buck so to speak. i dont want it to be one of those things you spend a ton of money on to only wear it one time!

Can’t see them (stupid web filter at work). Add pics if you can and a poll!

I like both. I prefer the lacy one, but they’re both good.

I think the lacey dress is definitely re-wearable (and pretty).

I love the first dress in purple or peach. I think the purple may be a better color for different skin types?

The unattainable dream!…lol.
Personally, I think the first one is more “rewearable”, but, honestly, if all my BMs bought the same dress, I don’t know if they would really wear it again. We run in the same circles, so I think they would avoid it.
Why don’t you ask your BMs how they feel? You could poll them. Or, give guidelines & ask for suggestions. That would be more likely to ensure that it is “rewearable” to them (since it’s really an issue of personal preferences).

Purple lacy dress, I will never wear the wrap dress….

I definitely gave up on the “wear it again” idea, but a lot of that was because the compromise involved floor length dresses. I was also vetoed on black *sigh.*
It’s not 100% something that I would wear, but I know tonnes and tonnes of people who would look amazing in that. It would make a great summer dress. Personally I’d pick the purple, but that’s mostly because I’m the palest person you’ll ever meet and can’t wear peach to save my life. That said, if your BMs skin tones are darker than mine, the peach might be awesome.
I prefer the lacy dresses, but the pictures don’t have them in plus sizes and I always find it hard to extract from “model” to “real human.”
My 2 cents, take it or leave it!

Unfortunately the purple and peach lace dresses are both out of stock. I think the style will work great for them though.
The wrap dress from Torrid would be ok except for the hem- not a fan of handkerchief hems.

I really love that lace dress! (and the price is fantastic!). I wonder though, if the wrap dress may be more flattering?
Maybe send pics to your girls and ask which they prefer!

Ask them for their input then. I personally wouldn’t wear either again.
Post # 13
it tells me your purple lace choice is out of stock.

I like the lace dresses! both colors (but it said they were both out of stock 🙁 so that would be no good)

I like the lace dress a lot better for a wedding. I actually have this dress in dark blue and I love it!!

than you gals for the comments.
@lionskitty: i cant seem to get the pics to attach without getting an error.
both of my gals are pale like me but could pull off any color (i wish i had that ability. it drives me nuts they can wear seriously ANY color and it looks good on them)
@julies1949: they go in and out of stock pretty reguarly so im not really too worried about it.
@les105: one of my BM’s is actually my roomate while the other lives in AK so its not a big deal if they wear the same dress. they are also REALLY hard to draw opinions from! i swear its like pulling teeth. i have asked both of them and this is what we have it narrowed down to these two from about 10 or so and they both cant choose which one they like better so i get to make the tiebreaker
