I had my heart set on having my bridesmaids in convertible dresses so that they can tailor the dress to their own personal style and body type. However, I was reading some of the older forums and a couple of the former brides said that convertible dresses are a bad idea for women with a D cup or larger bust. I honestly thought it would be okay but I guess I could be wrong. Out of my 7 bridesmaids, 4 of them have size D or larger cup size, I would hate for them to be uncomfortable. Have any of you come across this as a problem with your bridesmaids? Thanks in advance for your help. This is an example of the type of dress that I am referring to:

For me being a large breasted lady lol I would be ok in this type of dress if I could wear a bra. You wouldn't get me in it otherwise. I buy my swim suits with built in bras too. Is that possible?

@calgarybride2015 it doesn't seem like it can have a bra built into it. I think wearing a bra with it is possible depending on the way its tied.

    I was considering the convertible dress too until my maid of honor, who is a DD, pointed this out to me. She showed me pictures and it looked awful, even on smaller busted women because some women need a bra. I'm one of those women lol.
    Instead I'm doing one designer, one fabric (chiffon), one color, same length different styles. My favorites are wtoo and Occasions by Haley Paige (formerly Jim Hjelm). Lots of different colors to choose from. I honestly also was not a fan of the Jersey fabric of the convertible dresses.
    This is Wtoo, just to give you an idea. My girls love being able to choose their own dresses.

    @Laur114 Yeah, one of my girls is a DD too and I would hate for her to be uncomfortable and I don't want her or anyone else to look bad. I will definitely check out your recommendations because I want them to choose what they want style wise but with the same fabric. Thank you!

    Hi ladies, one of my bridesmaids is a plus side and is a large cup size (she has to go to specific stores for her bras) I don't know how large but definitely way bigger than a DD. We found that the infinity dress was the best fit out of all the dresses they tried on. She did keep on her bra as the ones we looked at came with a matching bandeau to wear underneath so it wouldn't show her bra strap. There are lots of stores on etsy with the top to go underneath. The dress was so flattering on her, she felt the most comfortable in it compared to all the other dresses. I'd say to give it a go as long as you can get a top so she can wear her bra.

    @SunshineDreamKay that's so good to hear! I set up an appointment for her to try it on to see how she feels and looks in it! Hopefully it will work as well as it did for your bridesmaid!

      HI, I am invited to my friend’s wedding in May and I ordered very very beautiful pitchy-rose color’s convertible dress for this special occasion. I am DD as well. Just so you do understand – the top front of the dress is made of only two individual bra cups and mesh with rhinestones. It really depends on your bust how it will look. Someone prefers more modest style, but I am fine with my figure. One thing – I get my size bigger than I normally wear, just because I remember history when I try my own wedding dress from another online shop sometime ago and it came smaller in size. After a little tailoring those cups supported me great. The dress itself is very well made. I got very nice colorful rhinestones and some seed beads on mesh on the top. The bottom material is lightweight and flowy. In general I am impressed with quality materials that this dress is made off, especially considering that it came from China. I had some bad experience before with ordering from China and this dress came perfect. Ii is not cheaply made as the one I ordered before from similar company. So I am happy and recommend adasbridal site to everyone, but be careful ordering online.

        It depends upon designer basically. Various Wedding planner Raipur or in other cities too, they know how to design those dresses like using dark color and some fabrics it will not look bold.

          Ok it is not a big problem, few of my clients have faced such problem and my designer suggested them to put net or embroided cloth over that and few buttons to make them not look bold.
