    Why not let them pick the style they like in the required color?

     Size 00 and size 20 are not going to look their best in the same style dress.

    I think you should choose a colour and let the BM’s choose their style. I think it looks really good and everyone gets to choose something that flatters them.

    Dress B is amazing!!!!  I almost let my girls get that.  I had a size 12 and a size 24 try on, looked great on both.  But we voted for coordinating dresses at Davids, and one of my girls got dress C.  She is a size 4, and its great on her.  My size 12 tried it, and it looked awful.  Just FYI!

    I voted for A because I used to work for AA and that dress looked great on every body size. However girls with bigger busts may want to have the removable straps as an option so after ceremony/pictures they have them to throw on if they start to feel uncomfortable. (hook and eye on the inside of the dress)

    The first 3 dresses dont have a lot of structure (ex. boneing) which is what is needed to help hold the girls up for 8 hours. The last one may, and may also look good on multiple body types.

    hope this helps

    I like dress B. Dress A isn’t bad, but I don’t like the other two at all.

    Maybe try picking a company (like AA) and just going with that. That’s what my girls did. I gave them the Company/Color/Length, and they all picked the style that worked best.

    Would you consider 7132 in Gold…(this is my bmaid dress and the price is great!!) I love Alfred Angelos Satin colors, but just a forwarning their Chiffon colors are VERY different in person than what you see online. I suggest you check out samples in store or order some swatches from their website.

    The first two dresses were on my list and I ended up not liking them in person for two reasons, the chiffon color difference in person like mentioned above and it did not flatter my  size 24 Maid/Matron of Honor and the 2nd dress just felt too “promy” to me and it was SUPER big on the bottom, or at least the sample we tried.

    Best of Luck to you!

    I think B and C look like they would be most flattering on most body types (this is coming from a size 12 woman with a large chest).

    I really like B and C. I think that both of them would be flattering on all body types.

    I voted for Dress B.  My girls tried it on (they’re also a variety of sizes: 4 to 16 and 4’10 to 5’9), and each one of them looked stunning.  We finally decided that althought it was beautiful, it wasn’t the right look for my wedding.

    Dress D could also work very well, though.  That was one of our final four choices.  It looked fabulous on everyone.  That being said, they preferred a very similar Alfred Angelo one over it because the AA one had a sweetheart neckline (flattering on every bodytype) and a corset back.  I can find the link for you if you’d like.

    With that range of sizes and that many girls, I’d let them each choose the style they like best.  But if you want them all in the same dress, I’d go for #1 because chiffon is more universally flattering than shiny fabrics.

    I vote that they get to pick their own dress. They’ll probably be a lot happier if they can pick something that flatters their body type. Also some girls might not be comfortable in a strapless gown.
