I think it could work depending on how much support the bigger size girls “girls” need.

I would think so.  In order to be more universally flattering you might want to consider an a-line skirt.

It could but being a former size 16 I would worry about the one shoulder causing a back fat issue.

That dress looks like it hits slightly lower than mid-thigh, and as a plus sized woman, I wouldn’t be comfortable in that. But your bridesmaids may have better legs than me. Haha. It’s a great dress, though.


ETA: Ignore me. I obviously can’t read. Haha. You said you’ll get the hem at the knee, so yes, I think it’s a good dress for those sizes.

I found that 1-shoulder dresses weren’t as flattering on my larger-busted BMs.  The way the top laid on them looked unflattering.

I think it kind of depends on their body type. I am an 18 and anything where the waist hits high or even at the “natural” waist it looks bad on me. But it just depends. Is there anyway everyone can go try on similar styles to see if it would work? They are super cute I wish you luck

Speaking as a busty girl, I think it would be fine! Just have the girls fitted with their strapless bras on to make sure they’re not sticking out.
