    Hi everyone,

    I really like the twist and wrap dresses but just can't afford the expensive bridal shop ones. I have come across one from a British high street shop 'The home of the British stores' and I just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with them? They don't stock the dresses in store so I would need to order them online. I think they're gorgeous and can be worn in so many ways but the pictures on the website look a little bit too 'fleshy' to me. I don't think I want my bridesmaids with totally bare backs! but I'm sure there's a way to wrap the dresses a little bit more modestly. Does anyone have any ideas? :)

    Thanks!

    I agree with you on the total bar back thing but think the bottom one with the x across the back looks lovely. I don't have much experience with these dresses I'm afraid. Have you asked your bm's opinions?

    Yeah I think it looks gorgeous too. They love the dresses but they love them tied like that and I'm not sure I would want them like that. I just wish it showed you more options online! Also two of my bridesmaids are 15 and still have pretty young figures so I'm not sure how it would look! Decisions decisions...

    There's a couple of other ways but the back is all very similar. The X is really nice, I'm just not sure about the younger girls and I can't get them to try it on before buying :/ I think I might just order one and see how it is before buying the lot :)

    You could try getting one and trying it out, or get one for the adults and find something slightly different but still similar for the younger girls?

    I have just ordered one of these of the american site et3y from a seller called the dainty yard. I ordered a short one and it was 35 pound with postage.. and the quality is fantastic.. it also came with a tube style top to go underneath the dress so there back is not on show and they can wear a bra..

    The seller is from Singapore but came within 2 weeks

    There's lots of ways of having them. I nearly had these but went for chiffon one shoulders instead xx

    Gemma, can I ask you how the sizing was on the tube top on the dresses you received?
    I ordered one, which is one of the floral print ones which are sized smaller that the others, but fit OK, but the accompanying tube top was tiny , wondering of the ones with the others are bigger. Have contacted da1ntyard but waiting for a reply.
