What about adding a corset back to the dresses?  What do they look like?  Post a pic or link.

Also, what are the sizes of the other dresses – can any dress swapping take place?

Or you could add a back panel in any color and give her a wrap or jacket to hide it…

The store can’t take the dress out at all? One size isn’t that much of a difference. they should be able to let it out a little bit

@jo.lee: Take it to a tailor – one unrelated to the bridal store. See if they can let it out. If they can’t, a type of muted corset or other closure in the back is a good suggestion by bridget.sutter

Also, clearly your cousin shouldn’t starve for this, that’s a bad idea (as you stated), but rice ain’t gonna help.

@jo.lee: Take it to a alterations person and let them work on it.

Does your cousin have her receipt? That should say something about what size she ordered… right? That sucks they won’t do anything :(.

Maybe try looking on craigslist for a seamstress?

One word: Spanx.

2 of my 3 BMs don’t fit in their dresses currently because one gained weight, and the other swears she’ll lose weight by the wedding so she ordered the smaller size. *face palm* I’m going to buy the girls Spanx if they still don’t fit 2 weeks prior, and if that doesn’t work, we’ll look at alterations. Ugh.

I have no advice, but I just wanted to say that those dresses are PRETTY! Also, I totally thought it had straps and think it looks really cute like that too! lol.

Perhaps your cousin can take some of the length off the bottem and have it added to the back of the dress?  Also Spanx are a great idea in addition.

Is it possible to order extra fabric from the bridal salon to let out both your sister’s dress and your cousin’s dress?  That way all BMs will be in the same dress as originally planned.
