The second long dress you posted would be perfect for many sizes and shapes. It has an empire waist so the tummy and waist are hidden and those areas do not need to be fitted. It also has straps for the bustier girls. The straps are not wide enough to conceal a bra if any of the girls are really busty but if any of your dresses need to be hemmed, a seamstress could make wider straps with the leftover fabric.

That type of dress could easily be ordered without trying it on as the bust and underbust are the only critical measurements.

I wouldn’t waste too much money worrying about the perfect color for all the BM’s skin tones. There will always be those who look better or worse in certain colors, but a little makeup can solve that.

Once you narrow down your color scheme,pick the color that you like, send the girls the information and they can order their dresses.

I too like the sencond Pic It will work for most of the girls. And Yes narrow down the color so the girls can just go and try them on. No extras since their coming form all over. Like the mens suits, cake, decor ideas. If your going to add some sort of pink color then yes to that for the girls. If not then the minty pastel color would be pretty.
