My sister (when we picked the dress) was a size 8, my SIL was a size 24. They tried on tons of stuff but we found that an A-line cut with bust emphasis ended up looking great on both of them. We ended up going with this. It gave my sister a more fitted look, until she got pregnant, and it gave my SIL enough space to have a smooth silhouette. They both felt comfortable and looked great.

Here’s a pic of them, but as I mentioned my sister ended up being 7 months pregnant for the wedding.

@Ms_Midori:  The other option is to let them get different dresses. For my sisters wedding, we all got to choose different dresses, we ranged from size 0 to 32, but that had to be by the same designer and the same fabric so they could come from the same dye lot.

My bridesmaids are two very different sizes as well.  One is tall and very skinny, and the other is short and kind of round (and very top heavy!)  I let them pick their own dresses, as long as they were from the same designer (I obviously picked the colour!)  The shorter of the two girls is not comfortable wearing a strapless dress, since she is so top heavy, and the other wanted strapless.  So I let them go with that they wanted.  I have been in a lot of weddings where we picked our own dresses and everyone looked their best that way 🙂

I second the different options dress! We did that, and I think it worked out wonderfully! All of my bridesmaids and hubbys groomswoman were different shapes and sizes, we picked the color and they picked the style!
