My bridesmaids come in all shapes and sizes and I need some store advice! I’ve looked at David’s Bridal. Are there any other stores that carry plus sizes in bridesmaids dresses? I’m hoping to find another brick-and-mortar store to be able to have my ladies try on dresses, hopefully carrying up to 28. I know Nordstrom has a little bit of plus sized inventory, but most only seems to go up to 18 or 20.

what style are you looking for? that might make it easier! But i think (bridesmaid brands aside), if you need, say, a size 2 and a size 24, it may be difficult to get the same dress. You could have a seamstress make them. Wrap dresses look good on EVERYBODY though.

Did David’s Bridal have the size you were looking for? And have you called all the bridal shops in your area to ask if they can get that size?

I’m in a wedding where the bride is thinking about getting alfred angelo bridesmaid dresses. Some of their dresses go up to at least size 30, but I don’t know what sizes they typically have to try on.

Bridesmaid dresses go up to size 28 but that is not street size 28 since formal dress sizing is different. The best thing you can do is call ahead to bridal salons in your area and see what they have available. You can have a seamstress custom make a dress but they won’t be able to try on styles beforehand to see what is flattering and what isn’t.

I’m looking for the ladies to have around the same length (I wouldn’t want one to be in a floor length and the other to be in a super short) and the same color dresses (or maybe have a choice of blue or brown). I want them to all feel beautiful and more importantly, comfortable! My preference is for tea length dresses, but really it’ll be up to them. I was just hoping someone had heard of another plus size store other than David’s Bridal. Thanks for the suggestions ladies! I may try to sweet talk my mom into thinking about making them… 🙂

Alfred Angelo is also a good choice for plus-sized BMs. I think they can order up to a size 32 I think.

Jenny Yoo does plus sizes. You can see their collection at Bella Bridesmaid, but I don’t know if they have plus sizes in stock. Aria goes up to 26 and will mail you sample dresses to try on in the correct size.
