I have been in more weddings then I care to count. About half of them seem to have the bridesmaid dress from Davids Bridal.
For my friend Jessica's wedding I was pregnant so I she had the added challenge of dressing her girls in matching dresses that a pregnant girl could also pull off.
The Spaghetti Strap long chiffon dress with empire waist worked perfectly. She chose black which was flattering on everyone. One of the benefits of buying a dress at Davids is that everyone can try on the dress at the store. This was not the case with the bridesmaid dress that I had my girls wear. They only carried the dress in a size 10. I was able to go into Davids bridal, grab a size 16 off the rack and try it on. No guess work and no embarrassing measurements (especially with and expanding belly).
The dress was a little on the expensive side for something that I was only going to wear once and I was disappointed in the construction. I wore it one day and one of the seams ripped.
What I did like about the dress was that it was very figure flattering. I liked the fact that it was loose enough to fit over my pregnant belly. The beading on the empire waist was stylish and added a little bling to a basic black dress.
I still have this dress in my closet. I could actually wear it again if I were to get it shortened.
