I ordered all of mine from Nordstrom’s online, granted they could have gone into a store and tried the dresses on but they were out of stock everywhere!!  I ended up buying dresses in multiple sizes and ordering 2 sizes for some of the girls, that way they were able to try them on and get the right size and send the other ones back, it was a huge expenses for me up front – ordered 8 dresses at $300 each for 5 girls…but I just borrowed from my savings.  It was worth it to me to make sure they all had a dress that fit, now I’m just waiting for my refunds to come in and for the girls to pay me back, lol!!

@esk716:  Best of luck!  Are most of your girls similar sizes?  The dress I ended up going with were perfect on all body types, but I was worried they wouldn’t work for everyone…my girls range from size 2P to 10 and barely 5 feet to almost 6 feet tall.  You can’t always tell from photos online since they’re always on tall skinny models! Hope it works out for you 🙂
