Sometimes sleeves like that can be un-flattering for girls without thin arms. Are the girls heavier or just busty? (Ugh, I swear I’m not trying to sound mean in that sentence! I just know that sometimes sleeves like that do weird things to arms).

I like this — the ruching on the stomach is generally slimming.  I also like that they’d be able to wear this elsewhere pretty easily.  I think that the trend is moving towards less traditional Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and more to wearable ones outside of a wedding.

It’s very cute, but I am also a little skeptical about the sleeves/top portion…looks like it might be a little unbalanced?  Can they try these on somewhere?  The model looks nice in it but appears pretty flat chested – would a bustier girl kind of “spill over’ the ruching part?

I’m busty, buuuut, I see that it has a line across the dress where the seam goes. If a busty girl wears that seam where it SHOULD be (aka under the bust), I don’t see enough fabric to cover them up as much as the model. There will still be some cleavage, I imagine. And the puff sleeves MAY be too tight on them, too. I wear a larger top cuz i’m busty, too, and i find that arm holes sometimes are too tight for me, and I don’t have big arms.

I definitely think it’s a “try it on and see” kind of dress! It’s cute though, I definitely like it!

What about a wrap dress or convertible dress they could all wear in its own style?

You could give them fancy hair pins to jazz up their outfits….I think with “casual” (ie cotton jersey) materials, you could really fancify them up with jewelry and adorable shoes. So what if they aren’t wearing silk or satin?

I do like it, but I agree that it might not be dressy enough. I think, as well, that it’s a try-it-on-and-see type deal.

I love the dress, btu I share the concerns of the other bees, especially with the seams lying where they are supposed to. I hate those shirts that have the seam under the bust that’s supposed to give an empire waist effect but instead hits me mid-boob! have them try it on and see how it looks!  Super cute, though!

I like it too! And don’t worry about it not being formal enough, you can dress it up with jewlery & shoes 🙂

adorable! i’d be thrilled to have a dress with sleeves. not everyone  — especially the busty — wants to go sleeveless, and so many are sleeveless these days. go for it!

I think you should try to work on the original dresses-especially since you have time…  if you take them to have them altered and go sleeveless I think it will really hop it up a notch as far as making them dressier… you can have them wear their hair up which will also add to the formality…
