I think so. I had to wear a similar dress, but full length and one strap, recently for a wedding. It didnt look great on anyone, but it didnt look horrible either.

It is rsiky if you have a ny 12’s that are top heavy. Srapless can be hard for girls with chests, they end up pulling and tugging at it all night to keep it up. The skirt would work for just about everyone though, if you found something that had straps. I had the same issue and ended up going with mix and match dresses in the same fabric from davids bridal and they are super cute!

The only thing I would worry about is if any of your BM’s are busty.  I know that I am a 36C and wear a size 12, the biggest thing I would have to worry about are the girls popping out!  Other than that, I think it’s really pretty, the color is great, the ruching on the bust/waist would be flattering, and the A-line on the skirt would flatter most everyone!

You should have someone try on it before choosing it.

A dress like that could make you look pregnant if it has too much fabric bunched in the front.  But at least the top has enough boob room for girls with all size chests.  That’s the problem I’m having, I have a bridesmaid with huge boobs and I have to find a style that her boobs will fit into.

I’d say yes – even if your girls are blessed in the chest, that’s what they make fashion tape for! My girls had larger chests, and we used that tape like nobody’s business – and it stayed all night!

Honestly I have never seen a wedding where everyone looked great in one single style dress.  I think the best goal is to make sure no one looks horrible.  Everyone has their own “trouble spots” stomach, butt, books, arms, calves etc.

Check out the Victoria’s Secret Convertible Flirty Dress in Blue or Aquarium! Here are my girls wearing it in Chocolate:

They loved them, can wear them again, and could tie them in whatever fashion they felt comfortable in! And my girls ranged from size 2 to 18!

If the dress has optional spaghetti straps (most do), you should be fine with that style. Cute dress, btw!

Hmm…If any of your girls are top heavy, it might not look so great.  I would definitely be spilling out of that dress and adjusting it all night to get it to stay up and cover the girls.
