Dessy and David’s bridalboth offer a full range of sizes.

As for style,you can have the girls try on dresses at a regular store that also carries plus sizes so they can choose the most flattering style for them. You don’t have to dress them all in the same style.

Go to a place like Nordstroms that has excellent service and will work with your whole wedding party at the sametime.

David’s will have all of those sizes. Ditto that you don’t need them in the same style. Maybe something similar, but a dress on a 4 won’t look the same as on a 22, so if it’s a little different, it won’t make a big difference.

Not for everyone but this is exactly why I asked my bridesmaids to wear a BLACK dress of their choosing (they are paying for it) all it had to be was knee length or longer, not too busty or busy (no sequins)

I personally don’t get the dressing them all in the same things.. they aren’t twins and chances are you picked them for a bunch of reasons, so let them be them and comfortable in what they are wearing just as you should be in what you are.. Nothing is worse IMO then wearing a dress you feel dreadful in and knowing the pics will be shown to tons of ppl forever.. I’ve been in those and as happy as you try and be your insecurity shows if possible just have them pick the dress in whatever colour you assign

Davids bridal has a great selection of dresses and you could pick the exact colour.

I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man (my SIL) that couldn’t try on any dresses and it broke my heart when we went to a salon and they said they didn’t have anything for her.  That being said, she dealt with it just fine, especially since even some of my fit friends couldn’t fit into the tiny sample sizes!  We are going with 3 different colors so the girls will all be in the same dress, but I think as long as you get good feedback from your girls and they all think it will suit them then it’s fine to order without them trying on.  We all ended up liking a dress and only one girl tried it on, even though some of the others could have.  Most people know their own figure well enough to know if something is going to flatter them or not.  I think it would be great if I could just let them all pick their own, but we have a specific look we are going for with the colors and letting them pick would actually stress out some of the girls more than me picking!  If you are going with something that is very fitted or has a lot of intricate sewing details, you may want to make sure everyone can try it on.
