kelsbee:  Count me in with the haters. Not just this dress, but all one shoulder dresses. I always picture the designers getting together at the fashion awards and having a chuckle  “Can you believe people are actually buying these things? Whose turn is it to make something ridiculous for next year?”

Impossible for big chested women to wear- as strapless bra doesn’t cut it, and even smaller chested women have to spring for a strapless bra because there’s only one strap.

But as Bees are wont to say “If you  and your BM’s like it, that’s all that counts.”

This was the dress my Maid/Matron of Honor wore – it was one-shouldered.

My daughter’s bridesmaid’s just wore one-shoulder, long gowns, from Dessy #2861. It’s also available in shorter lengths. Their website is great as you can view the different styles and lengths in all the available colors. I thought they looked elegant. All the gals wore strapless bras with them.  A few of the not well endowed gals tried strapless gowns, but couldn’t keep them up; the bustiest of the group spilled out of the strapless styles. I don’t know how to cover the faces, of the bridesmaids, so I can’t send an actual photo.

I stood in a wedding a few years ago and we wore Alfred Sung dresses in different styles. One of the girls really wanted a one shoulder so that’s what she got. It looked great on her and she never complained about fit or anything. Honestly I’d ask your girls what they think. You want them to be comfortable.

kelsbee:  julies1949:  I let my Bridesmaids pick their own dresses. Two of them picked one shoulder. The other three picked strapless. The only say I had was length, color and fabric.

We have a one shoulder Mori Lee in the shop I work at and I love it, one of the few one shoulder dresses we have that looks nice on a range of body types. (ML prices are also great compared to Bill Levkoff which we also carry)

My girls picked out a one shoulder dress. They felt more comfortable in it as opposed to a strapless dress. I would much rather wear a one shoulder dress than a strapless because I hate having to worry about my boobs being all out there. I hate halter dresses and some of the tank top style dresses look too matronly.

It might not be the best option for someone short torsoed or big chested- but most styles don’t look great on every person in the universe, but you know your bridesmaids.  I had a deep v neck bridesmaid dress, which wouldn’t look good on a big chested bridesmaids, but all my bridesmaids were A or B cup and it looked GREAT on them.  

One shoulder looks great on a lot of people (I would like to wear one!) and I think it is way more comfortable than strapless.  

My dresses were by Bill Levkoff and I loved them and so did my Bridesmaid or Best Man.  They have beautiful colors, great chiffon, and tons of dresses.  I’ve only been married 3 months and one of my BMs has already worn their dress again!  They are pretty good quality and reasonably priced.

all of my Bridesmaid or Best Man are either “average” or “above average” on the boobie scale. And the dresses they picked look fine on them. They actually wanted 1 shoulder to help with the dress being supported. Ovbs these are just them trying it on.
