How plus size are they?

I got my girls robes at Macy’s (online). I am a tall thicker girl (wear a 12/14 and am 5’9) and bought the L/XL for me and for 2 of my girls. They’re very roomy and I wish I would had gotten me a S/M instead. I think they’re more for an XL/XXL.

northshorebride :  You could purchase and monogram them separately. You could source them separately, also. The bride in the last wedding I was in sourced my hoodie from a different vendor (the hoodies are just different styles – hardly noticable) than the rest of the ladies because I’m 2x. 

And I agree, check Etsy. 🙂

ETA: Also if you are set with robes, you could simply ask the ‘maids if they are interested in wearing a short robe. Present it as your concern for their comfort on The Day (which it is) and I don’t think it hsould be a problem.  She’ll be upfront about “No I don’t want to wear that” or “Yes let’s!”.

I think it’s a cute idea, and mostly for pics. But not so practical. Will your girls be comfortable in the robes? If so, I say go for it!

Here is a site that offers up to 2X http://www.weddingprepgals.com 

My sister did satin robes for her wedding, with our titles on the back. Cute, but the girls hardly wore them, and we mostly just wore them over our PJ shorts and tank tops. 

I am thinking something more comfy that will actually be worn again… maybe this (I have 1 plus size bridesmaid)

We rounded up the 10 best gifts we know you’ll bridesmaids will love. Read on for the ultimate ways to say thank you to your bridesmaids.: These are also cute and seem to be a little more covering than the satin robes:

I’m asking my crew to just wear some jammies! We are getting married in December.
