My sister is one of my bridesmaids and she is a size 22. She did not get to try on the dress at the shop but I picked a style that was very flattering for her body type. The dress has a lot of ruching on the top and then has a long A-line skirt. The rouching makes you look slimmer. It looks gorgeous on her. I ordered my dresses from Amsale.

I have one bridesmaid that is a 14 and one that is a 16 and the other is around a size 8.  We got our dresses at Nordstrom.com.  They have a great plus sized section.  Yeah if you order online you might have to return it but you can return it to the stores.   We also went with same fabric/color and different styles.  They will each wear a style that fits their body type but same color.

Have you tried Alfred Angelo stores.  Check their website, http://alfredangelo.com to see if a store is near you.  If one is within driving distance (I had to drive 2 hours, but it was worth it), I say go for it.  They also go up to size 28 and the store I went to had tons of plus size dresses to try on.

Be careful with ordering online.  A place like Nordstroms will be great with returns, but places like http://www.plussizebridal.com don’t do returns at all for bridesmaid dresses.  They will for bridal gowns, with a restocking fee, but NOT bridesmaid dresses.

Good luck!
