Have you tried David’s Bridal?  I just checked the website quickly and they have a few dresses on sale for around $80.

This one is one sale for $60 and is available in a few different shades of blue

I agree that David’s Bridal or Alfred Angelo are probably your best bet in that price range. 

I’d also let them pick their own dresses so their comfortable.

 

PS – I just noticed your wedding is still fairly far off.  I’d advise against having them buy their dresses as this point – maybe wait until January or so.

Also agree with Ali.  It seems really early to be buying your dresses.  My BMs picked theirs out this January and I’m getting married in June.

I think you’re going to have a hard time finding something at a department store that will fit all of your body types, particularly since you are dealing with a possible maternity situation.  I would possibly consider not having matching dresses and instead have them all buy blue dresses, or picking a designer and a color/fabric and fitting each girl to the style that looks best on her body type.  Let’s face it- you’re going to drive yourself nuts trying to find a dress that looks good on both a curvy adult and a tiny 9 year old.

Also, I’m not sure what any of the plus sized or pregnant bees think about chiffon, but I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who is both plus sized and very recently post pregnant and while she seems to think that those drapey chiffony dresses look good on her and “hide” her tummy, she actually looked MUCH better in the dresses that were made of a more structured material, such as silk shantung or silk taffeta.  We ordered her dress “maternity sized” so that the waist was moved up.  Lula Kate is really awesome to work with- albeit much more expensive than you are looking for- but maybe your girls could save up?  They might think it’s worth it if they love the dress.  Just a thought.
