Well, A-lines are pretty universally flattering. I think that full-figured women can pull off a mermaid, depending on their shape.

Pick dresses with lots of structure.

No super-clingy fabric because it emphasizes lumps and bumps.

It’s not for everybody, but have you given consideration to letting them pick their own style from a specified line and fabric type?

@SapphireSun: I’m going to second this – we did it for my girls (4,12 short,14,14 tall,18 short).  

I was also recently in someone else’s wedding with a dress that initially I hated – but in the end I felt so pretty and it was SO comfortable.  I’m a 14 in DB bridesmaid and the other girls were 8, 10, and 12. Style was 84066

Also, I don’t know what your color choice is, but the darker the better it will look on the group.  Part of why I hated this dress above is the color I tried on to fit at the store was powder blue, which made me look a LOT bigger than I am.

What about letting pick the dress in the color you want?
