Y Neck Charmeuse Dress with Bubble Hem Style 84177
I am very large chested and was really nervous about finding a short bridesmaid dress that I felt comfortable in. Although I did not love the bubble hem, the dress is very flattering. It gives a lot of coverage on top so I did not have to worry about adjusting the dress all day.

My bride allowed us bridesmaids to pick out our own dresses so long as they were all short and they were all going to be the same color. This was the first dress I tried on and I loved it. I only tried on 2 other dresses before I said there's no way I'll find any other that I liked more than this one. It's super comfortable and I love the pockets. Plus I know I'll be able to wear it again and not say, oh this was a dress I wore as a bridesmaid in a wedding.

My MOH and four BMs are all wearing this dress in plum for my fall wedding, and they are going to look stunning!
I had the challenge of finding a style that would flatter all my girls, sizes 4 - 22, all of whom are pretty indecisive. The only strong opinions they had walking in to the store were 1) no strapless, and 2) that they all wear the same style dress; to narrow it down a bit further, I requested a knee-length style. This was the third dress our consultant brought out...I was skeptical, as it didn't look especially cute on the website nor in person on the hanger, but it was SO flattering on each of my girls! The cut of the dress either emphasized or created an hourglass-shape for each of their bodies. They agreed that the charmeuse was soft and comfy, but I think what they all loved most was the pockets. Furthermore, this dress has high wear-again potential.
A couple of suggestions...first, as others have stated, this dress is on the short side. My girls were all between 5'1" and 5'5", so the length was perfect for all of them - even with heels. Secondly, I would recommend this style in darker shades that will counteract how shiny the material is. In a too-bright color - or with the wrong accessories - this dress has the potential to look like something a 21-year-old would wear clubbing, but in an elegant color paired with delicate jewelry, it's a fun, sexy choice.

We went into DB with a different dress in mind for my sister, one of the one shoulder dresses. She is quite busty so we knew a strapless would not work well.
I thought this dress would look terrible on her, it looks awful on the hanger, she has broad shoulders so I thought it would just make her look wider. But I was wrong. She put it on and she had a defined waste, made her look longer and covered everything that should be covered. I will admit, it is slightly short, but the bubble hem keeps it close to the body.
She loved the pockets!
