    Hi ladies,

    I'm from Canada and there is no Victoria Secret located here and I was looking online at purchasing my BM dresses through them. I just want to purchase something like...

    Victoria's Secret - The Beach Dress

    or along those lines. My BMs picked them because they are so beachy. They want a dress they could wear over again if they wanted.

    My question to all of you who have ever purchased from VS is what is the fit like. Is it very clingy and unforgiving? My BMs are tiny so that shouldn't be a problem, but I'd still like to be able to tell them if the dress will stick to their body like glue. Any info on these or any beachy dresses for VS would be greatly appreciated.

      I'll let you know when i get home - my order arrived today and got the beach dress in Orange! Their dresses generally fit well. if it looks tight on the model it's a fitted dress - the beach dress is 18' from the waist so it's not very long but not too short either.

        Hi! I actually purchased this style for myself in brown last year... Love the dress for the beach. Warning though. The material is SUPER casual and if I were your BMs, go for the longer length to keep it more formal. Personally, I would go for a more flowy material, since this one is on the thicker stiffer side (and isn't as flowy in person as the photo). But it can DEFINITELY be used again and again at the beach coverup or as a sun dress. If anything, you can buy one, and see if u like it (it's so inexpensive, and you can return for free).

        Since I am a big fan of modal/jersey dresses for the beach, may I recommend you looking at an etsy seller, Isadora Clothing (Isadora by isadoraclothing on Etsy).

        I ordered from her twice in the past, and I think your BM's would LOOOOOVE these dresses. It's much pricier than the VS dress, BUT you get at least 7 styles AND each BM can wear it in a style that flatters her (TOTALLY worth the $). These are convertible dresses, and I was actually going to order one more for this summer in orange or turquoise. She also lines them for a little extra.

        Hope that helps!

          I have this dress and it does puff out in the stomach a little bit b/c of the way they gathered the empire waist.

            Thanks for the replies. I would prefer a longer size. The size options are 18' from the waist & 23' from the waist. Is the 23' down to the knees?? If so, I think I would prefer that.

            I gave them the convertable dress option as well, and it seems my girls are still wanting to go in the VS dress direction...unfortunatley I would like it to be alittle more formal but they are travelling all the way to Mexico for me & I want them to wear what makes them comfortable. I just hope there boobs aren't popping out the whole night. lol...i'd rather my FI be looking at me and not their business...lol

              I have this dress, i love it but i only wear it over my bathing suit now becuase once you wash it it shrinks and becomes very short im only 5'2 so most short dresses are long on me but no bending over in this dress it barely covers my butt cheeks

                lol. that's what i forgot to post too. My dress is pretty low cut. and i'm a C cup size, so your bm's girls may hang out a bit, unless they tie the halter straps st the top pretty tight. go with the 23 inch length, cuz the 18" one will be too short. I got the 18" one, and I'm only 5'0" and it's pretty short on me. i'm sure there are other similar dresses out there (check out the brand Tart on google, or Sky Clothing at www.unicamelrose which are higher end jersey/modal dresses with sexy embellishments). If your BMs love their dresses, that's all that matters, and you are the bride, so i'm sure your groom will only see you on your special day. good luck!

                  I was on line yesterday looking at VS dresses and fell in love. I haven't run it past any of my BM yet but there are a few that are def. in the running.
                  I'm from Ontario so if any Canadian's out there have ordered & received dresses can you help me out with cost for shipping? or return policy? did you have any problems ordering to Canada?
                  Happy planning!
                  Cheers

                    Yes, I was looking at this site recently too, but I want to be a bit more formal and it looks very short.

                      Here is what i gathered about shipping to Canada from the website:

                      Standard Delivery

                      Order usually arrives within 10-14 business days (for in-stock items only).
