The Ultimate Bridesmaids Dress – The Wrap/ Twist Dress
They’re comfortable and easy wearing. Your Bridesmaids can all order the exact same dress (bringing in uniformity and flow), and yet wear them differently (bringing in beauty and elegant variety – and allowing each bridesmaid to be comfortable and confident in a style that best suits her body.) This is a dress that you can wrap in many styles. It is a great affordable option for bridesmaid’s dresses. We use lycra-type fabrics as it flows well, stretch and fit most body types. It is a very forgiving dress and doesn’t show unwanted bumps. Available in Small, Medium and Large. Lead time for ordering of these Bridesmaid Dresses is approx. 4-6 weeks. Any alterations that may be required on arrival will be an additional cost to the seamstress.
They are very cost effective and best of all – the ladies will wear them afterwards again, and again, and again….

Tips for the Bride and her Bridesmaids
Consider the preferences of your bridesmaids as much as your own. While you probably have fairly fixed ideas in mind about the ideal dress for your bridesmaids, and while it is your prerogative to choose the dresses, it’s a good idea to ask your bridesmaids individually how they feel about your choice and to find out if there are elements that they’d like to contribute. Being positive about their involvement can turn your wedding direction from great to spectacular if you’re willing to listen!
Seek to complement the bridal outfit. The bridesmaids’ dresses work best if they support and reflect the bridal outfit without deflecting from it. Keep the bridesmaids’ dresses simpler in design but clearly in line with the bridal gown by having some elements similar, such as embellishments, buttons, bows, lace, etc. It is also a good idea to have contemporary bridesmaids’ dresses if the bridal gown is contemporary or vintage bridesmaids’ dresses if the bridal gown is vintage.
Be considerate of your bridesmaids’ individual concerns. Some of the things your bridesmaids may be uncomfortable about include plunging necklines, bare shoulders, being too hot or cold, wearing a colour that doesn’t suit them, too much length or not enough, transparency, and tightness of fabric. Since these things concern comfort, be willing to be flexible. Some things to consider include:
- The height and weight of each bridesmaid. Some styles will carry off better on some physiques than others.
- The costs involved and who is bearing these. Some brides choose to pay for the dresses while others expect the bridesmaids to carry the costs. In the latter case, the bride has less say over the end result.
- Any need for hue or shade variations to match complexions.
Be thoughtful about future usefulness of the bridesmaids’ dresses. It is a good idea to allow variations in style between the bridesmaids’ dresses that reflect their physique and their wish to be able to wear the dress again for other formal occasions. Slight style variations are not such a big issue if continuity is maintained with colour and some linking embellishments. This also takes care of concerns about modesty; if one bridesmaid wants a plunging neckline and another wants a collar up to the top of her neck, such a variation can be accommodated if you’re style flexible.
