My bridesmaids dresses are through Dessy and each of the girls had to order a size larger than they usually wear.

If she’s a 28-30, she might not be able to order through Dessy. I believe they only go up to sz 26.

So, if she is a 28-30 street, she wouldn’t fit in the Dessy 26. Maybe they can special order it, but you might want to call/email Dessy beforehand. I had to email them with a question and found their customer service to be very helpful.

I believe they can order them in those sizes (the bridal store could tell you for sure) but they likely won’t be able to try them on in the correct size.  From my experience Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping, the stores often carry each dress in only one or two sizes and they just take measurements and order you the size you need.  I’d bet you’ll have to go this route as well (my girls are wearing dresses from the Dessy After Six line).

Also, a word of advice.  Try to find somewhere online to order the dresses from.  The dress my girls are wearing, we bought online for ~$130.  The cheapest a bridal store would order them for us was $185.  That’s a big cost savings for your girls!  Good luck shopping!

I am doing Dessy. I too have a bm that wears about a 28-30 in street clothes. She could not wear their dress. They give you an option of ordering additional fabric so you can add but I wasn’t fond of that idea so I just had someone to make her a dress (with her measurements) that matched.

For about $100 extra, Dessy will customize the dress to her specific measurements.

I agree about the online shopping. I ordered my Dessy dresses through Joielle (one of the sponsors on the ‘bee). They have been so incredibly helpful during the process & I’d recommend them!
