    [Quote]It's a nice idea, but if you go with that, how about choosing different styles for all the girls - same color/dress manufacturer. If you single her out and she doesn't become pregnant, how terrible for her to have the reminder...and how even more awful for her to have to explain to innocent inquirers.[/Quote]

    Wouldn't people just think it was because she's MOH? Or, at least, couldn't she say that?

    I am with Missy, though - it would help to see the dress.

    [Quote]That's a very beautiful dress. Is that the color you are going with?

    In my opinion, I don't know if that style would look good on someone who "could be" 6 months pregnant at the time. Might be uncomfortable, too.[/Quote]

    I agree.

    [Quote]Oh, she's the MOH - sorry I missed that. Yes, of course, that could be the reason for the different style dress.[/Quote]

    Not the MOH.

    lol, I think we all made up that she's the MOH. IMO, different dresses on BMs look nice--it highlights their individuality and they'll feel much more confident and in the merry-making mood when they're in dresses that complement their body types.

    You could do same designer, but different styles of dresses. If the color and fabric are the same, it'd look very nice. What're your colors?

    Sorry, didn't see your post before I posted...stupid BDC...since you don't want to change the dresses for everyone, if your friend is happy with that dress, then ordering a size bigger and altering it sounds like the way to go.

    The dress is GORGEOUS. However, I cannot see it working on anyone who's pregnant and showing at all. :(

    Oct. I looked at the link you posted and in my opinion, that dress will only look flattering on a very thin bridesmaid.

    If you think she will be preggo, I would strongly advise letting the girls each choose different dresses since she is not the moh. I know you may like that style, but, the girls are the ones buying the dress and wearing the dress. It is a hefty price to pay for a dress they will only wear once. I would want them to be comfortable in it.

    I am definitely not changing the dress for everyone. We've decided to wait until May 1 and it's her choice whether she either gets a different style, waits to order from a different dye lot, or orders a couple sizes bigger.

    I don't know how to post pictures on here, but it's Watters style 3733. http://watters.com/dress_popup.php?showid=889&id=0

    Missy, I was thinking the opposite--I'm small (5' and about 100 lbs) and there's no way I could rock that dress; definitely don't have the chest for it! I think it'd look good on a curvy girl, though.

    Well, it's her call. She can either go with that dress or go with a different style. The other style is a two piece so probably more comfortable and easier to get altered for someone who is pregnant.

    I started searching for a bridesmaid dress months ago. I even looked everywhere for this style dress for the best price. I am not choosing different styles for different bridesmaids. I ordered the dresses and put a deposit down for all the girls to offset the cost of the dress. Everyone responded and said the love it. She responded with her concerns which I totally understand. All I can do now is wait and see what happens.

    My bridesmaid dress color is chocolate brown.

    That might be a better choice for her. Just imagine not being pregnant, but putting on some weight and having to wear that dress. It seems to show everything.

    Oct, that is a tough situation! I know there have already been tons of posts, but I agree with those posters who have recommended for the BM to get the same dress in couple sizes larger... it looks like one that could be taken in to fit her perfectly, baby bump or not. If she likes the dress to begin with, then that might be the best option.

    (p.s. it's gorgeous! Are all of your BMs tall?)

    That's my worst nightmare. I don't want to have to suck it in on my wedding day. I just want it to stay in!! Ha, ha.

    I haven't tried them, but I read that Jennifer Aniston requested the company make sheath dresses for her out of their material because she finds it so incredibly comfortable.

    Yeah, Spanx rock. I'm a size 2/4, and they make me nice and smooth under anything, jeans to gowns. I don't need to look smaller, but they are smoothing and shaping, and after I eat I don't have to suck in to look the same as pre-dessert.

    I had to wear an ivory, heavy satin bridesmaid dress once. I was fine, but I was certainly sucking it in all day that day.

    I think it's a beautiful gown and that style of ruching does wonders in creating an hourglass shape on almost any body type. I'd love to wear it!
    But I'm not sure it would look right on someone who was pregnant and showing.

    October,
    This dress is beautiful! As someone who design and sew some of my own dresses - I honestly do not think you have to worry. Order your BF's dress a couple of sizes larger - and have it taken in to fit her - pregnant or not - when the time comes. The rouching can be taken in or out to fit her baby tummy - if she has one. In fact I think it is and ideal dress to deal with. And the dark color will hide lots. Good choice. Best of luck to you both.

    It doesn't trust me. I've put on 20+lbs and it hides all my problem areas because of the ruching. And, God created Spanx for a reason. Last year I had to wear a BM dress that was fitted and satin and that dress showed everything.[/Quote]

    I dont really think your pregnant bm will be wearing spanx

    why are you so opposed to letting them each where a dress in the same color that fits their body shapes? Why dont you want them to be comfortable? Youre not wearing it, they are. Imagine being pregnant in an incomfortable dress for that amount of time.
