    As long as no one has put any money down I would keep looking…  4 out of 5 isn’t a very good ratio.

    I can see why you’re conflicted. I wouldn’t choose one that your Bridesmaid or Best Man with body issues hates, as that will just look bad. One REALLY unhappy Bridesmaid or Best Man will stand out versus all of your BMs being fairly happy, albeit not SUPER happy, about their dress.

    That being said, keep looking if none of them really like it! I would look yourself first, that way if you end up thinking this one will be fine there are no issues. 🙂

    Also – is it the empire waist that she liked? Or something different? Find out what she liked about that dress and go from there!

    @mcj040916:  have you considered doing the mismatched thing, find a designer that makes a bunch of dresses with a similar color and cut and just have each girl choose the one that she likes/ works for her body the best?

    By The Way, just wanted to share. My girls all happily agreed on a certain AA dress really quickly. It’s chiffon (so flowy) and empire waisted, but it’s got straps and some other support/detail. They range from a size 0 to a size 18, so I was pretty shocked. I was prepared to go the mismatched dress route, but they all liked the same one! PM me if you want the style number and I’ll go look it up. I can’t remember it off the top of my head.

    The mismatched dresses might be good for you in this case.  Give them a colour and let them pick something that flatters each one individally.  You could put some guidelines to cleavage/length etc and ask for final say just so that you are happy with their choices

    IMO you can ask for their opinions but if you know what you envisioned don’t give them a choice.  I didn’t…

    Do you still have time to go shopping with them ? I personnally like the dress, but if your girls dont than maybe it would be nice to go shopping again 🙂

    I think the dress is nice! Honestly it’s rare that bridesmaids are going to “love” a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress–it’s just not the style unfortunately!

    I just think flowy-ness would be forgiving on waist areas and they would all love them
