Are you looking for Long or short styles?  I would say stay away from shiney fabrics and go with a chiffon or something that doesn’t hug the body too tightly.  That will create a more uniform look for them all. 

I am at work >ghasp< I will log on when I get home, I know I have tons of magazines, and I have a specific dress in mind, but I can’t think of who makes it:)  So I will definitely get back to you!

I wouldn’t do Chiffon. This is going to sound really bad, but stay away, it’s going to look like a tent on the girls who are a 20+ size. it is going to find the widest part of their body and just hang on them and make them look wider then they are. It will give them no curves. You don’t want a dress that is clingy and tight but you want a dress that has structure that will give them some curves.

Are you open to online dress shops like Dressilyme? I have been looking on there because BM dresses in Australia average $300 from what I’ve seen (wayyy out of my budget) and I have a large size variance between my girls as well. 

Dressilyme has heaps and heaps of dresses for about $100 (thats in AUD, so even less for you) and you could get different styles in the same colours if that works better for your girls.

Oh, and I wasn’t a fan of the twobirds dresses, I love the idea, but I looked at the different styles you can make and most of them do not seem bra-friendly. I know my girls who are bigger said the one thing they must have was a dress they could wear their own bras with.
