Which one of the VS Convertible dress are you going with?
I had intentions of going with the ruched version. We ordered one to test it out and found out that the dress is VERY see through and a little hoochy. So 3 months before the wedding we switched and the girls ended up picking a dress at a salon. The salon was able to rush it for us and we got it in with time for alterations.

Have you ordered one yet to have them see the dress in person? Do they have it already? If they are seriously uncomfortable with it they can always resell it on eBay. My Maid/Matron of Honor sold the VS Ruched on eBay afterwards.

Your best luck at this point is to go dept store hunting! πŸ™‚

Is there anything you could do to the current VS dress so that everyone feels more comfortable wearing it and then you can avoid finding another dress?  I have one of these dresses with the more flowing skirt and it’s only form-fitting in the top.  If that were the one your BMs purchased, a cardigan would be a good cover up.  I love the weddings where the BMs wear cute embellished cardigans, but I don’t know if that would fit your style.  Then, your bridesmaids would also have less trouble styling the dress because they could wear any bra or tank top underneath. 

Nordstrom may have some great options too.  The spring lines are probably already out in stores and usually there are cute dresses.

Here’s the return policy – they should at least be able to get merchandise credit if they haven’t worn the dresses:

Refunds will be credited in the same form as they were paid if an item is returned within 90 days of purchase. If an item is returned more than 90 days after purchase, a return will be administered in the form of a merchandise credit redeemable with your next purchase.

I also know you can’t return catalog items in stores.  Good luck!

I’m kind of in the same situation however, we haven’t even bought dresses yet!  We are going to pick out and order them tomorrow and I’m getting married 4/15!  Aggghh!!  Why did I wait so long!  Worse case scenario- I will have them pick out a black dress just above their knees and they can wear that!

Pick out a department store dress. Most have great deals online right now and will come in right away. Pick a flattering a line style, non clingy material with an easy return policy. If the girls can’t get their money back for the VS dresses then you need to cover the cost of the new ones. It’s not fair for them to purchase 2 dresses. What color/style are you looking for? Maybe we can help you look.
