Hi i only have one bridesmaid its my sil although she isnt plus size we had issues with her only thinking of herself and wanting to wear a bridal gown!!! I think it was jealousy  s.m.h Fiance talked some sense into her since he wanted her in the wedding because i was going to kick her out of it anyway lol


It wouldnt let me copy the picture and not sure if you are set on short dresses but i thought this would be cute and it has flowing caps on the shoulders ..

Well maybe you could consider this, maybe her dress since she is the Maid/Matron of Honor be longer in length, or maybe she could have a bolero with her dress. But you really need to ask her what she thinks and maybe she just might consider the short length. I have seen on some bridal television shows that a plus size women looks really good in a short dress. Because for some reason it brings out that sezy side in a women to show some leg, and also it may help her in becoming more comfortable with her body.

I’m a plus size, and I think I’d be comfortable in either of the dresses you have here. They’re really pretty!

All your dresses look like they are a great style for a plus sized gal.  The waist in the last 2 create the illusion of an hourglass figure.  The last one she would be able to wear a good supportive bra with.

I think chiffon would be a problem if it was a lighter color. The main thing I’d be concerned with would be ithaving straps. Id tell your sister what you like, and show her but give her more control over what she prefers strap and length wise.

It depends on how your friend is shaped and where she carries her weight. I am plus sized, but most plus-sized clothing is not designed in such a way as to be flattering on my hourglass figure. I usually have a ridiculously hard time finding a dress that is flattering to me. I always find myself wishing that clothing designers would just make regular sized/designed clothing in larger sizes, since many plus-sized offerings are created for women who are taller than I am or who carry their weight more in their middle than their top and bottom.

Although I would not make her any promises or give her veto power over the dress decision, I would ask your sister what types of things she would like you to at least consider when making your selection for the bridesmaids dresses (for example, no gathered waistline, no empire waistline, nothing too low cut, etc.) In fact, you could do this with any of your bridesmaids whom you feel may have special concerns. That way, you’ll at least know what any of their concerns are up front so that you can at least attempt to consider them in your selection.

I’m plus size and I’d wear both the second and the third. I’d have to try to the first one on to see if it looked alright on me, but its cute.

I’m plus-sized and I think all your options are fine!  My only concern would be with how low-cut the last two are…but that’s because I’m kind of modest in the way I dress.  

A for the whole straps vs. strapless thing, it depends on how she’s built.  Not all fat girls have massive boobs, so some of us do just fine in strapless lol.
