She might have to purchase online, which would be fine if everyone knows what type of dress they look best in.  My bridesmaids ranged in size from 8-24 and originally I planned on getting the dresses from http://www.ariadress.com but when they tried them on, the size 24 BM’s couldn’t quite make it work because they ran about a size or two too small.  But their dresses are beautiful.  Also try http://www.shopnordstrom.com.  I don’t really know where you can go for off the rack dresses in plus sizes besides David’s and Alfred Angelo.  Sorry!

http://www.lanebryant.com has its own section devoted to black dresses. There are a few cute ones, but none of them full length. If you get too simple of a dress and full length on a plus size woman, it’ll just look like a black sack. Does it have to be full length?

Also http://www.sydneysclosest.com carries plus size bridesmaids gowns. Even if she needs to take it to be altered a bit, a local steamstress should be able to do it in no time. Good Luck!

I second Nordstrom.com. My main criteria was a navy full length dress in a range of sizes (I have bridesmaids size 0 to 18) that was inexpensive ($98). I found a dress online that is simple, classic and strapless navy in sizes 2-18. Best thing ever: the Nordstrom by my house does free alterations! This varies from store to store, but I found their online customer servie to be fantastic.

You might also check macys.com.  They carry Maggy London and Evan Picone that range to 16.  Also, a plus of the department stores is the loose return policies.  They can buy them now and still have 3 months to change their mind (or see if they go on sale).
