one cavaet – stores that carry a range of sizes, not JUST sizes catering to full figured women.
Turns out my Maid/Matron of Honor is a size 18, but often wears a 20 in dresses.
My other two maids are both size 8. I (and they) would VERY much prefer to keep their dresses under $100, but that rules out almost every bridal line – so I need to find cute, formal dresses that come in both 20 and 8!

You may want to look at Nordstrom’s wedding shop, Macy’s or Talbots. All those stores often have dresses that cover a whole range of sizes. You could also go with the pick a range of tones and let the bridesmaids pick out their own dresses, so you are not held to one store. It all depends on how matchy you want things to be.
Also, you could allow the Maid/Matron of Honor (since she has a harder size to fit), pick a completely different dress in the same color as your other girls.
Hope some of that helps!
