i bought bridesmaids dresses from http://www.lightinthebox.com

I have all different size bridesmaids 2-24 and they can make any dress in any color in any size.

i ended up with these in black 🙂 they were only 89.00

My sis is a 24 and it looks awesome on her – i wish i had some pics

I’m interested in some pics too! That’s what I have been racking my brain about all week. I have bridesmaids ranging from a size 4 to 18/20. Their dresses are almost as hard to choose as mine was!

 I don’t have pics but I suggest anything with straps. Theres nothing worse for a plus sized/big chested girl then to have to wear a skimpy strapless top. Also something that doesn’t zip from top to bottom in the back. All woman but especially plus size carry their weight in different places. What might fit around the chest on one part of the dress might be too small in the stomach area. Also anything like the pic already posted with the lose hanging front. That will flatter any body type. (Plus its ALOT more comfortable to dance and sit in!) Hope I could help a little!!!!

I got mine at David’s Bridal because all of the girls could try them on and not feel left out. They had samples in almost every size.

Now you mentioned big chests, don’t do a standard halter then. When I wear halter dresses I have jiggly cleavage all the way to my neck! The one above is like a strapless shape (squared off at the top) with a halter strap that type would work, but your standard halter will be crazy with big boobs! LOL

Here’s what they wore. It was really flattering on all of them size 12-24 plus a pregnant Maid/Matron of Honor.

I think you should try David’s Bridal to see what works well for your girls as far as style, cut, and material.  Material can be a big factor with plus size girls.  It will be fun, all the girls can try on dresses, and you may find some contendors.  Once you know what styles will and won’t work on your girls you can look at what dresses “your” store carries and see if there are any there that you like and will work for what you are looking for.

Well ladies I hunted on FB for peoples posted pics so you can see them live, however the pics aren’t good, but you can get the idea.

This is my Maid/Matron of Honor and sister. Pregnant and wearing a size 18

and in the background is the other my SIL and Bridesmaid or Best Man wearing a 22 I know she’s fuzzy, but whatev LOL. She has more of a tummy and large chest. It was so flattering on her. The prettiest I have ever seen her look.

I always thought this style was universally flattering:
