In her defense (obviously she's still my friend since she'll be my MOH) she tried very hard to find something that would be flattering to everyone. I also don't have many body issues. She also accepted that I might retaliate and make her wear.. oh.. a bikini down the beach aisle. I am so glad that I don't have these issues with my BMs. I told them what style dress was going to get made and sent them off to find fabric that wouldn't clash with my 2nd dress. My flower girl, however, is having problems with her dress style (she gets to pick out her own color too.) She's only 6. She'll either adjust or.. well.. not be a flower girl.
Back to the original dilemna, the more BMs you have, the harder it will be to please everybody. If someone is going to be unhappy or not completely happy, I'd rather it be a BM than the bride. And if your bridesmaids know that you're a control/planner freak and that you'll feel better knowing everything is settled and done, then they should make more of an effort to indulge you and look for a dress now. Give them a deadline. It's amazing how things get done when there's a deadline.
