      I had the same issue with my bridesmaids being totally different shapes & sizes so I just told them the color & had each one pick the dress they liked the best. My sister actually loves the second one you chose above!

          I love it too! It was really cute on her, but my mom & godmother were with us & they said it showed too much cleavage so she's not sure if she's still gonna get it... lol

            I think the third one is flattering for many shapes and sizes. Don't let it stress you out. Just pick want you want and be done with it. You can never make everyone happy, so why even try?

                The second one is the one I originally picked for them (In cornflower Blue) but then I lked it so much I wanted to get it for myself LOL so I think we are going with the Victoria Secret 7 in oone convertable dress....You can't go wrong with that..They can all wear the same dress, but wear it whatever way they feel comfy :)

                Good Luck!!

                  Welcome to the club of accomodating brides that want to be nice with their bridesmaids

                  I had picked up the same dresses originally (in a different color though) ! I thought that if they could pick from different dresses, from the same designer (so that the dresses could have the same fabric and color), it would be easier...

                  ... well, it turns out, it's not the case....

                  It takes them longer to pick a dress, than it took me to chose mine ! Because they could not agree on the first ones, we have exchanged dozens of emails on dresses (and with one BM being in Peru, one in France and the last one in Houston it's not easy). Still nothing.

                  So I decided to give them a shortlist of 5 designers, with 4-5 selections from each designer. And I asked them to give me their favourites, by order. I'm gonna make 3 combos, and they will have to pick a combo. If they don't pick a combo within one week I'm gonna chose for them... it drives me crazy !!!

                    My BMs drove me nuts too in the summer... then it took so long that I finally picked one for them and made them go together to try it on. I was so lucky that they both loved it. I think at a certain point you either have to just put your foot down or back down and give them the reigns (but choose the colour), KWIM?

                    This is the one we went with. They are both quite happy with it. One BM is very small and petite, the other one struggles with her weight and really is worried about things that cling to her tummy. Both are fairly large-chested.

                    It's Mori Lee Affairs and we chose a beautiful raspberry colour, similar to what you've posted above. The sash is the same colour as the dress.

                    Here's the picture (of another BDW girl's wedding) of the same dress that made me suggest it to my BMs

                      Believe me, it's hard even when you have just one person. I finally said here's the color, go choose something you like in a tea-length and let me know.
