@Petunia123: Have you looked at J. Crew’s options? Or Watters?

Both have several “styles” that come in the same fabric so your girls could pick the dress that suits their figure best in the color, length, & fabric combo you choose.

dessy is great!  http://www.dessy.com  they have a few different designer collections, and soo many color options.  you can also easily order color/fabric swatches from their website.  since you say your girls all have different shapes, maybe chose a color/fabric/legnth and let them chose their own dress.  we went with dessy and ordered off an online vendor, and saved about 40% off what the bridal shop wanted for the same dresses.  good luck!

I picked Dessy dresses for my girls also. i chose the length, fabric and color and let them choose their own styles/ They are individual in their personalities and body types, so why not let that shine through?

I have the same issue with my Bridal party and I decided to select a fabric and designer for the dresses and let the girls all pick styles that are comfortable in. We went shopping last weekend and what could have been a very stressful day ended up being a great time and most of the girls found something that they were really happy with in the first 30 minutes! I can’t imgine how unhappy/uncomfortable some of my girls would have ended up if I would have insisted on the same dress for everyone.

I’m having fun searching Nordstrom’s dress selection, here’s what I found:

Donna Ricco Stretch Satin Sheath DressSuzi Chin Maggy Boutique Ruched Matte Jersey Dress

Adrianna Papell Shantung DressPatra Beaded Silk Chiffon Dress

Oddly enough these all have straps. If it helps, I also had one busty Bridesmaid or Best Man who really wanted a dress that would allow for a real bra but in the end she wore strapless and looked fine with a strapless bra (there was significantly more clevage than the others but not offensive).
