Don’t guess about whether or not they’ll look good – go try some on!  At least with J Crew if you don’t like them after you receive them you can return them (unless they are final sale).   I think Jim Hjelm makes some very pretty Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but sadly I think they have a hefty price tag as well, so be sure to bear that in mind.

Good luck!

I just wore one yesterday for a wedding that I was in. I am 5’4 and 125 pounds, I usually wear a size 4. The Jim Hjelm was a size 8 and only needed minor alterations.

I know I’ve mentioned this before on another post, but I was just so happy with them and their prices. You can probably get the same exact dresses direct from the designer for $75-$100 cheaper using netbride.com

Yeah IMO they are expensive. And I’m not sure many of them are practical for more than a wedding. A friend of mine had one (gorgeous) but it was $300 she said. Eek.

I love jim Hjelm and Alvina Valenta-i’ve worn both, and yes they were expensive, but I felt amazing in the dresses and to me that is worth the money. I’m weird like that though.

I am using JH for my dresses and I think they are worth the price – mine are around $200.  I looked at a lot of other brands, and found the quality lacking, IMO.

My girls had Jim Hjelm dresses!  They all LOVED their dress.    All of miy ladies were built differently, still looked good.  I have to say though, I think that was more the style of the dress than the designer – which is what I think is standard.  Here is ours – they were 220.  I found this to be a good price based on quality and fit as compared to other brands we looked at.   I normally wear a size 4 or 6, and I ordered one (loved it that much!) and took an 8 with minor alterations.
