probably, however the stretch satin part bothers me is it that clingy type of fabric or stiff fabric?  i’m a 14/16 and i’d wear it πŸ˜€ if it was stiffer fabric…

Hmmm, I have a couple of fuller figured BM’s.  And from my experience trying to find a dress they feel comfortable in, I don’t know that this would work.  They wanted something that was more a-line and less tailored through the hips.  I’d wait to ask her when the time is right.

I would think no on this.  I don’t think that would be very flattering for a plus size due to the straight cut.

Wrap dresses look amazing on fuller figured women.

As a full figured short person I wouldn’t feel comfortable.  I would prefer an a-line.  They are more forgiving.  The top of the dress is great.

I would advise you to stay away from stretch satin for anyone with a lot of curves.  I just ordered a very similar style dress in stretch satin for my bridesmaids, and it only looked good on the girls who have more boy-shaped figures.  The stretch satin fabric sucks right to your body, and that skirt is going to be very snug on the thighs. 

For my fuller figured girls, I chose a dress that was empire-waist in a silk taffeta with a bubble skirt.  Both girls have amazing legs and the dress looks adorable on them. 

However, Nordstrom has a GREAT return policy, so if you want to try it out, I would suggest ordering it and then just taking it back if it doesn’t work. πŸ™‚

As a full-figured girl myself, I prefer dresses that are A-line, and tend to float away from the body without making me look like I’m wearing a mu-mu.

try David’s..you can tell them what you want them to wear (or let the girls pick diff styles in the same material) and they’ll put it all in the computer under each person’s name.

I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been around on WB very much recently..and obviously missed the fact that you have a date!!! Hurray^^!!! Super exciting.

And I agree about the fabric not being great for fuller figures.

Wait – Im sorry – Im confused, you picked out your wedding date and bridal party and starting the planning process … but arent engaged?

I would wait till things became official – especially since you will probably offend her by having the “oh will you be my Maid/Matron of Honor .. and here is your dress which you may or may not be confortable in” conversation.

I have a few bridesmaids that are a plus size, and when trying on the dress I thought they would love, some wouldnt even come out of the dressing room in.  Save your time and effort and just hold on to your colors and worry about your own dress until everything is official.

it depends on where the fullness is. Mine is in my tummy more than hips, but some women could rock this!

My sister is a size 20, and we did end up picking a “pencil style” dress, but it has an empire waist and is a heavier dupioni silk, so it has a lot of heft on it’s own. I would suggest from our dress shopping to air on the side of a fabric with a good amount of heft to it, so it doesn’t cling to the body (although the bridal store staff always stuck her in chiffon dresses – we didn’t find they were as flattering as the dupioni silk).
