    Here is the situation. 1 MOH 2 BM. One BM lives in Afghanstan. After much internet search (because may be eaiser for her to buy) we found the convertable dress at American Apperal. As luck would have it we have two stores in Ottawa and so we go down there with concern because it is made of Jersey cotton and may be too casual. But, we think it is great and it photographs well. 15 ways to wear it (so it will work with most bodies) and comes in 26 colours. Perfect, done they love it and at $45 how can you go wrong...until...
    BM that didn't get to see it (except on line) says that it does not have enough fabric around the bust area. She is a large chested gal. Her bras would never fit under it, and there is no way she can wear a strapless. "what else you got?"
    Problems I see are: how do you corodinate three ladies when one lives abroad? The other two are in love with this dress and we can't have the 3rd wearing something different. I would ship her the dress to try but when mail takes 30 days to get to her and they only have a 30 day return/exchange policy not sure if it worth it. The store doesn't ship to Afghanastan.

    So I need help with sugesttions. Sugestions how you cordinate the three ladies. Even if we tell her the colour how is going to find something in the same shade? Help with a lady who is large chested? Any tricks?

      What are your colors?

      Maybe you could totally skip the whole "matchy" BM bit and have them all pick out dresses that they like. That seems like a fair solution since there is no way the one BM will ever be able to try a dress on.

      Personally, I wouldn't fight the system- it's too much of a headache. I would just tell them to get a dress in a certain shade. Even if the dress colors don't match 100%, I still think it would look good because the colors would at least all compliment one another.

          I agree with Rachel and am also suggesting to skip the matching BM's.

          My MOH begged me to make sure her dress has straps and that she could wear a bra with. It's tough being large chested and even worse if you aren't feeling comfortable in what you are wearing.

            I think you're right and you know what that is what I originally said to the ladies but they wanted matching ones. Maybe I will let them know the colour (when I pick one) and go from there. Here is the link to the dress if anyone wants it.

              I just looked at the dress, very nice by the way I may order one. What way did you want the girls to wear it? There a number of bras that woud go with this dress, there are also the nubra. NuBra

                While I think it's a very pretty dress, I can understand why a larger chested girl would not feel comfortable in it- bra or not. I doesn't look like there is a lot of material covering the girls.

                Plus I don't know anything about your BMs shape, but I can tell this wouldn't be a dress flattering to all figures.

                  The dress is very pretty but on a side note.....did anyone look at part 1 and part 2 when you clicked on the link? I felt like I was watching a porn as the girl showed the different ways to wear it...you even see part of her nipple!!!!

                    Would she be able to wear a bandeau style shirt underneath to add more coverage if she wears it halter style?? I have a larger chest in comparison to my body, but would be comfortable if I could just add that bit of extra coverage...

                      OMG- you totally see part of her nipple. Ok I have never heard of this company but those photos look like something a 15 year old put together. It looks like she took them in her freakin bedroom. The very first pic in part one made me think I was starting to watch some child porn. Disgusting!

                      Part 2- you can see her nipples through the white shirt. Ok, this is wayyyyy wrong. I'm writing that stupid company.
