Question about Victoria Secret Dresses??

Recommended Posts

I'm in Canada too and I've ordered from VS a lot with no problems. Their things always get here really quickly and I'd say the sizing information they give you on the site is pretty accurate. I've never ordered one of those dresses but I've ordered other clothes and bathing suits and always really liked whatever I got. Good luck!

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.

Ok - so i got the dress, size medium in 18' length. i am 5'4", size 8, C cup

Personally, i think it's a little too casual for a BM dress but maybe with the right accessories. it's just above the knee on me and not too form fitted, but it is a bit plunging and it's tshirt material.

Good luck!

I don't think the dress is very formal at all. I think their sizing is pretty accurate; however, I have a shirt from victorias secret that is almost identical to the dress top. My chest pops way out in that dress and i honestly wore it once for that reason. The girls were not just out a little, and i am a C cup. I would get the longer length if you can and if any of the girls have a large chest i would maybe reconsider this dress. It's totally your decision and your bridesmaids, but like you said you dont want their chests to be out the whole day. Good luck with whatever you decide!

I've decided to go for this one instead...

Victoria's Secret - Daytime jersey A-line Convertible Dress in solids

Its still beachy and they can wear it over again, and seems to be the perfect length. Plus it can be worn 7 different ways...Bonus :)

Thanks for your help everyone!!!

We ordered that exact dress for our bridesmaids in Blackberry and they all love the dress and I have a couple of girls who aren't super thin. The dress is very flatering and they can wear it any way they want. Some of the style options are really nice and will look very pretty on the beach.

Before I ordered them I found a dress in the same colour on ebay for $70 that I bought as a test dress so the girls could check it out and then decide if it was for them. Well they all have their dresses now and can't stop trying them on to figure out which way they want to wear them!

Victoria's Secret - Flirty Convertible Dress
Vallarta-

The first one you said (VS A line) is exactly what I was thinking for my BM's.
Did you find that it was still a good purchase/deal with the shipping/duty costs?
You answered my questions before I even got a chance to ask them regarding the style and look. All 4 of my BM's have diff body types (very thin, to tall and curvy! ) and I was hoping that a convertible dress would work as they could make it look best on their body!
Thanks for the post!
I'm definitly going to show this to them and see what they think

Thanks Heather!! Your comment just reinforces the idea to buy those ones!! I hope my BMs will be as excited about them as yours are :)

I'm going to get them these shoes to wear as well...They are so cute i'm going to get a pair for myself to!!

We actually shipped them to a friend in the states who them sent them to me. I saved money this way because I was able to take advantage of some of some of the promo's they have which are only good in the states.

I'm not sure about the A-line, but the flirty dress is very flowy and although the material is Jersey/cotton it doesn't cling it just flows away from the body.
If you can, I would do the test dress thing on ebay - if you're bridesmaids are in the same city as you.

Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
