I would try J.Crew’s LBD section (Or Banana Republic/Ann Taylor)… but if you need plus sizes, I would recommend Nordstrom or Dressbarn. I’m assuming you want a super special non-bridesmaid type dress, right?

Another option: the girls all pick their own. That’s what mine are doing! I just have to “ok” their LBD of choice.

My girls love the idea of all going to Nordstrom together and picking out cocktail dresses!

I definitely vote for J.Crew. I’m obsessed with all of their dresses!

@amanda.lynn – J. Crew doesn’t have plus sizes. 🙁 They were my first choice until I realized that. I don’t want to single any maids out!

what is your price range for the dresses? I think if you have girls of all different sizes then you will have to go with a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress if you want them all the wear the same dress.

My bridesmaids wore long black dresses, and I let them pick their own dress as lonng as they were strapless and long. Everyone could pick a style according to their preference and budget, and the bridal party as a whole looked very well put together at the end. I don’t think anyone noticed they were all wearing different dresses.

But I realize I am not answering your questions. David’s Bridal? Chinese dressmakers on E-Bay?

I vote for JCrew.  That’s what my gals did and they were all able to get their dresses on Final Sale!

Talk to bridal stores in your area – a lot of them can tell you which designers will pre-alter the dresses (formal floor length to tea length or cocktail) before they are shipped to the store. I had no idea that designers would do this, but the dress shop I am working with said they will and can on specific dresses. My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are black too! My grandmother’s first reaction was ‘HOW MORBID!’ Well, I guess she’s lucky she doesn’t have to wear one then because they are elegant, slimming and down right classic (not something I will look at in 20 years in photos and say OMG what was I thinking).

Good Luck!
