But what does it reeeeaaaaally look like?

So you may know that you can design your own formal dresses on the Coco Myles web site. You can also customize a selection of red carpet looks to satisfy your style needs. But what happens if you can’t for the life of you choose between scoop necks and empire waists?


The Coco Myles Dress Blog is here to help. In the archives, you’ll find pictures of actual people wearing the actual dresses they designed. You know, as opposed to gaunt models wearing dresses someone else picked out. You can get an idea of what a certain option will look like on an individual of your stature or body type without having to make blood sacrifices to the wedding gods.

    I really like how that bridal party came together.

    Although I think some of the ladies would have benefited from a little advice on what is actually flattering to them, rather than what they might believe is flattering.

    That’s advice almost all of us could benefit from now and again, Kai Jones 🙂

    Oh goodie, I’ll be looking for the women with their waists around their ankles, like me.

    Hee! Blake, you and I will be doing precisely opposite searches. My waist is in my armpits.

    And this reminds me, now that I’ve slept on it, of my sister’s wedding. We rented the attendants’ gowns from a shop that had various bodice, sleeve, and skirt options and sizes up to 28, in the usual bridal fabrics (i.e., satin or georgette) and colors, including lace options. My sister picked a color and the rest of us picked the details…and we didn’t have to *buy* (I think the combination I picked cost $60 to rent, and it was 1989 or 1990).
