@margaret.leslie:  You can take her to David’s Bridal. They have great princess and A-cut dresses that flatter all sizes. I am a plus size woman. I wear at DB size 26. I have always been the large bridesmaid but that does not mean she not go shopping. Not to be snarky, but she needs to get a dress or be replaced. Those things take time to come in.

My BM’s wore “Marine” at DB which is a dark rich blue.

Something like this will be flattering because the side roushing is slendering.



This one has isn’t strapless and have back coverage



My heaviest Bridesmaid or Best Man wore a size 22 and my bridal party wore this and loved it



good luck!

I too suggest DB….My sister is plus sized and she is having issues as well….it drives me nuts, because what does she want ME to do?  I can’t change her size…I have no issues with her size (except for the heart and diabetes and cancer that is hereditary in my family and weight issues don’t help with those)…..


So i CALLED david’s bridal to confirm that they will have something for her…they said YES….and that it will be a pleasant experience (crossing fingers)….i even went to another bridal store and asked their opinion and they said david’s bridal would be best for a plus sized Bridesmaid or Best Man who is having “issues” with dress shopping….

I would also suggest if she is uncomfortable to do a dress shop in front of others go alone with her..BUT i would suggest the other girls go first and then she’ll have to go after….

all my bridesmaids are wearing their own chosen style, and taht’s to accommodate all their different sizes and styles!

I hope it works out…i feel your pain….

My Maid/Matron of Honor & BM’s also went to David’s to try on gowns, but we went with a Bill Levkoff gown (#419).  They were two pieces and come in a variety of colors (including navy).  My Maid/Matron of Honor (pictured below) is plus-sized and I thought she looked FABULOUS!!! Good luck!

My sister is a larger size as well, and we went with bill levkoff style 577. It’s an a line, chiffon so hopefully will be a bit more forgiving. There is structure inside the dress so hopefully it will be ok.

I was always a pluz size bridesmaid and found dresses that came in under the bust and flared out suited me much better, i have picked a dress for my size 26 bmaid for my wedding in october, will try to upload it, colour is off putting but actual colour will be purple. i think its gorgeous.

I sould say dress is from true bridal, and the dress size they ordered her was a 30 or 32 i cant remember!! I based my dress picking around her as i felt size was overlooked when i was a bridesmaid and iwanted her to feel comfy, cos i love her!!
