Hello Beautiful Bees,
I ended up buying my bridesmaids all convertible dresses from Wrap Magic Skirt. I am now a little concerned that they may not have been exactly what I was looking for.
Has anyone else used them and had success in wearing them? If so, do you have any tips or tricks for me?
I have seen people use tube tops, brooches, sashes and what not. What are your tips for success to help make your bridesmaids look and feel fabulous in these dresses?
Thank you in advance for reading my post and for any tips or comments you may have!

I have a convertible dress that I bought on Ruelala a few years ago; if you search on youtube I recall there was some video on them. I’d suggest for your gals to try on various ways of wearing the dress and let each girl pick her favorite style.
The styles that I didn’t like were the ones that required multiple “wraps” around my waist since it made it much thicker and less “curvy.”

@missporkchops: Thank you for the tip! Most appreciated. I will send some links to the girls.

I suggest to buy the tube tops to match. Especially if any of your bridesmaids are larger sized or fuller busted.
I have a convertable dress (henkaa) and there’s no way I’m comfortable in it without the tube top – it’s just too revealing on nearly every style. And the dresses have no support. At least if you have the tube top you can wear a strapless bra with the dress. Without the tube top, for most of the wrap styles you cannot wear any kind of bra under (well, maybe those sticky ones).

I was in a wedding where we all wore them. My tips:
– PRACTICE. They aren’t intuitive at all.
– Compile how-to videos to send out
– Bring safety pins and double-sided tape
They look really cute, and I thought it was a great choice — I’ve actually worn mine several times since then. They just take a bit to figure out and put on, and they often need some reinforcements (hence the safety pins and tape).

@FutureMsRPM: I’m using Henkaa convertable dresses for my bridesmaids in a Fuschia colour. If you go on there website (http://www.henkaa.com) they have a number of stlyes and how to videos on how to tie them which could be heplful with your dresses also as most convertable dresses are the same design. My wedding theme is fuschia and bling so I got all of them crystal brooches all in different styles to add to each of there dresses to dress it up a bit and to tie my theme together

Thank you ladies for your suggestions! Much appreciated. I will definitely be getting tube tops for 2 of my girls as they are larger chested and I think they will appreciate the extra coverage but I will leave that up to them 🙂
I have sent the girls some links to videos and a couple of visual tutorials as suggested and have asked that they find a look they are comforable with one month before the wedding. We are then all going to get together and fancy them up with some brooches and sashes.

I know this is an old thread, but I’m hoping some of you still follow the Bee! I’m using maxi transformer/convertible dresses for my bridesmaids in a taupe color, and I’m wondering what shoes you ladies paired with these dresses. Thanks!
