I have DDs...I doubt this dress would work for me in any way.  :-\

I have the Victoria's Secret version of this and I have come to realize two things:

1. It weighs like 10 pounds.
2. My chesticles are too big to wear without a bra. But it's also impossible to twist the dress in such a way to render the bra invisible.

I am sad. And out $80.  :'(

I've tried one of these on, and I really couldn't stand it. I'm pretty busty, and you can't really wear it with a bra. I tried it without, and no matter what configuration I tried, I always felt like it was about to slip and show everything. Also, I couldn't do any of the complicated styles by myself. I would have needed a friend.

I guess if you aren't too blessed in the front, and have some help, it might be okay.

Uhhh - how is the second "covered up" one at all 'covered up'???? You can see so much side-breast, I'm surprised she didn't pop out!

Ahaha! I got a particular kick out the way the announcer kept saying 'your girls': "Your girls will appreciate more coverage.." as the boobage is bouncing away ;D

I have one that I bought at Target.  I figured I was willing to gamble the $20.  I haven't worn it yet, because it's a bit complicated.  I think that if I had some help wrapping it, and a few carefully placed safety pins, that I could do fun things with it.  I agree that it's harder to use if you're well endowed.

Try searching for "convertible dress," there's bound to be someone selling them there.

If you look at "Dessy" who make them there are several UK sellers (Go here, Scroll down and you'll see "Retailers Near you" which has a UK option.).

There's also this lady who shows how to wear a similar dress if you have a bust, and ways to hide a bra.

I bought one (tube skirt version instead of circle skirt) off Overstock.com for less than $10 (USA) - the THIN red jersey fabric CLINGS..............tubby tummy and DD girls are highlighted by RED jersey, let me tell you.

I'm thinking a matching tank top to wear under it (something that would cover bra straps) might be what is needed when you are making your own............possibly a sports bra in matching fabric................?

I saw on the original website that they have this band thing that "offers coverage and support". Would that work for anyone?

(it's the third down on the original page)

Oh, man, I have about ten of those dresses; I am obsessed with them.  I bought the majority off of etsy (from this seller), but I also picked up two of the Dessy ones on sale somewhere; I just wore one of the Dessy versions to my birthday party this year, and everyone thought it was the coolest thing.  

What to watch out for is how thick the fabric is, because when they're too thin, they get...uh.  "Indecent," I guess, is the word I am going for.  Another possible word would be "nippy,"  if you get my meaning.  Although, you can wear a strapless bra, depending on how you tie the dress (and I usually pin the dress to the bra so it stays hidden).  For a lot of the styles, though, those little sticky doo-dads work better.  

And thus ends my presentation on convertible dresses.  Thank you.

Does anyone remember Multiples or Units or any of those from the 80s? I bought one of their tube-belt type things at Daytons in the late 80s... and...um...  I wore it as a skirt.

I loved Units, and was very sad when they closed.  The regular Units pants looked too much like leggings on my sturdy peasant legs, but I found an off-brand with a looser fit.  I believe there were gauchos and palazzo pants too.  I had tops, jackets, skirts, the little tube belts/cowl collars (never wore one as a skirt though).  They were very forgiving if your weight wandered up or down.  In fact, I still have a few Units tops and jackets in the current wardrobe.
