    Do they need to be the same dress at all?  Can’t you send your girls out shopping on their own with certain parameters?

    I don’t know if it will help but we got the bmaid dresses at Town & Country Bridal since they have such a huge selection.  You might also go to like Macy’s or something since it doesn’t sound like you’re tied to a real “bridesmaidy” sort of look.

    It sounds like you may be limited to a bridal store with that variety of sizes.  What if you pick one or two colors and let the girls choose their style so they are comfortable? I am not usually an advocate for david’s bridal but they do have some cute gowns for under $100 in a lot of styles.

    Or if you really want to go for it pick a style and have each girl wear a different color. How cute is this!

    I loved these dresses on ETSY but they are more than you are looking to spend.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/73292185/vintage-inspired-tea-dresses-for-your

    I say have a seamstress make your dresses.  Maybe the wrapdress.  Maybe another style.  A talented seamstress will be able to make adjustments for BMs being plus sized and/or well endowed.

    There is a blog  today from one of the bees mentioning her concern with buying her maids dresses at a shop that offers the dresses in all sizes, including plus size, as she herself is a plus size bride.

    She mentioned David’s Bridal, Alfred Sung, and Alfred Angelo as having a full range of sizes.

    I don’t know about the prices but Alfred Angelo’s Dream in Color line has dresses in all styles and many bright colors.

    Why do they all need to wear the same dress? They could each wear a similar dress in a different color – that would look great!

    Don’t do the wrap dress if you have well-endowed ladies. For those of us with boobs, it SUCKS to not be able to wear something with support.

    DB does get new colors in ocassionally. Have you been to the store? The colors can look different in the store vs. online, and might change your mind.

    I’m a huge fan of “wear your own style” dresses. What if you had all of the girls in black/grey dresses and did colored sashes, heels, and accessories? DB has several sash options that would work great for this!
