Try Target!  They always have nice PJs in sizes xs-xxxL.

Try asos.com…. They have a “plus size” section and a “not plus size” section, so you have to hunt and peck, but I found robes that were exactly the same in both sections. They look cute and the prices are reasonable. Old Navy also does a good job of carrying the same pj’s in plus size and not, but maybe aren’t really “bridal” getting ready type of pjs… 🙂

Not pjs, but I got robes off of Etsy that had the exact same style in one size fits most and plus size, maybe they have something similar for pjs?

Personally I would recommend skipping the pjs or robes all together. Some ladies may not be comfortable taking photos in clothing like that. If you have your heart set on having matching getting ready outfits, I would get their opinions and find out what kind of clothing they’d like to wear. For me, it just seems like a waste of money.

LMWild:  This is tough, because most stores don’t have the exact same items in both size ranges. Old Navy has a few (really, only like a half dozen) PJ sets in both straight and plus sizes. Target has some PJ sets available in both range by Gilligan O’Malley (here’s an example: http://www.target.com/p/women-s-sleep-set-french-lilac-gilligan-o-malley/-/A-16869134#prodSlot=medium_1_3&term=french+lilac  and http://www.target.com/p/women-s-plus-size-sleep-set-french-lilac-gilligan-o-malley/-/A-16858781#prodSlot=medium_1_4&term=french+lilac). However, the sleep sets in the straight range that are in sizes XS-XXL are not going to work for your size 24 Bridesmaid or Best Man. I am a size 18/20 and the XXL doesn’t fit me correctly. 


Good luck!

If you have a size 24 Bridesmaid or Best Man, I would be hesitant because she may not feel comfortable wearing short pajamas in photos. I’m a size 14 and I hate my legs so I would definitely not be down for doing that. Why not just let them get ready in whatever they please? My girls did and it didn’t ruin our “getting ready” photos.

Do not make your girls wear shorts, period.  I would drop out of my best friend’s wedding if she insisted I wear shorts in front of another human being, let alone in photos.

I’m a plus sized bride and wanted to the matching things for my group.  I’ve got ladies from size 4 to 18/20 – and ranging in age from 4 to 65.  I had robes made by https://www.etsy.com/shop/SingingSlowly and they are perfect.  I let my ladies choose the fabric they liked best, and asked if they wanted long or short robes – and some other customizations as well.  The robes are all beautiful.

Ditto to what the PP said about not feeling comfortable. I’m a size 12-14 and I would not feel comfortable in short either. If you have to have matching something- go for the monogrammed button down shirts- those come in a wide array of sizes or do a robe.

Another ditto to PP’s posts about letting the BMs wear what’s comfortable. I’m a 10/12 and had to wear a little robe and felt super duper uncomfortable and hated pics being taken. It didn’t help that all the other BMs were a 00/0.

I agree with PPs. Personally, I think one prescribed outfit for the event should be enough.
