Beautiful dress, I just hate that it only comes in one size fits all!

    The girls and I are going to the store that has them in stock next month to check them out and try on.  I'll let you know feedback once we have gone there.  Thanks for this post.  It's a great idea!

      I ordered the henkaa dresses for my two bridesmaids. Both of my sisters are very different in shapes, but I find that the dresses look great on them.

        I've been debating between the Henkaa or Victoria secret dresses for my bridesmaids. Victoria secret is cheaper so if they are good I would rather get them. But for anyone who ordered them did you get the regular length or short. In the pictures the short looks really short but the regular length looks like it goes to the calf whereas I would like it go be more knee length.

          We are doing the Victoria's secret version as well. My girls love them. I will try to post pics after the wedding :)

            Another option is American Apparel.  The length is pretty good but they aren't the "shiny" jersey material so they may be a little too casual for some.  This is the other one we are debating on and only $40!!!!!

              I ordered a version from an an Etsy seller, Erin Nicole Boutique. She makes the dresses herself, and fits them to size. I'm getting the dresses around June 18 and can show you what they look like around then. I've seen wedding photos where brides use these dresses, and they photograph beautifully. Maybe they don't look so great in person for some versions, but they photograph well I think which is important too. My dressmaker would do it in matte jersey or shiny, which was really just the reverse side. I chose shiny because they look better on camera.

                    I am very curious to what it does look like if you can post when you get a chance..?
