@hilarycole:  I must look batcrud crazy because I honestly post my BM dresses everywhere! I feel like they were such a steal and they turned out great! If you like this style:

Then message this designer (she has other styles):  http://www.etsy.com/shop/LovelyMelodyClothing

Tell her your needs and ask for custom dresses (I would also ask to make the skirt longer) 

You send her the measurments, color, and dress style you want and then she will quote you based on your needs. My most expensive dress was for a pregnant BM and was 70 (including shipping!) and other dresses were around 50. Good luck 🙂

@Cynderbug:  Glad someone else know her! She is such an incredible person to work with and her designs just speak for themselves! I am in love with this collar dress she posted 🙂

If the Etsy seller doesn’t work out, David’s Bridal has multiple options for plus size BM’s. But a lot of people do not like David’s Bridal so I am not sure how you feel about them. I really didn’t want to go through them myself. However, I had to do an exchange so my BM dresses ended up coming from them. My biggest girl was a size 22-24, depending on the dress. We ended up finding one that was actually a size 18 (jersey material so it stretches) and it fits her almost perfectly.

I agree with looking at davids. They have a ton of styles that flatter Full figured women, all my girls are bigger and we got their dresses there. This is our dress, just so happens to be in grey that we tried on.

My bridesmaids went to Alfred Angelo, and they have a good selection of flattering bridesmaid dresses.  We went with an organza dress with roushing, which flattered all body types. My MOH is around a size 18/20 and they had some samples for her to try on.

@hilarycole:  they had plus size in my designer – I think it was extra though (30 I think). My dresses are over 200 though to begin with.
