If you are trying to find something for that range of sizes, you might go with something that slightly flares out in a small bit of aline.  I can tell you that I could never wear that dress, it would make my rear look twice as big as it really is and that is already big.

@HueysLuda:  I love the color, and the dresses are pretty.  However, I think all of the detail on the chest area is likely to not be flattering on bridesmaids who may have a large bust.

I think that if your size 18 girls have any kind of a chest then the ruffles will not be doing anything for them. (just saying as a size 16/18 with more than a handful I have worn styles like that before and let me tell you my “girls” didn’t need that much attention).

@HueysLuda:  You would really have to get her to try it on, but if it is as straight a cut dress as it looks it’s going to be a hard to fit gown.

Nice idea, but I feel like that material won’t be very “forgiving” in the stomach/leg area. And it doesn’t really look a-line…looks more “sheath” in that picture. Is she wearing a belt in the picture or does it come like that?

I’m a size 12/14 and that would not be flattering on me.  The belt would call attention to my problem area: my waistline.

What size is the person that you showed? I don’t think it will be very flattering on a size 18.

@HueysLuda:  honestly, as a size 16/18 I cringe at that dress. It is very pretty but on my frame it would be scarey. LOL
