Take her to David's. They have a large variety of styles in a lot of sizes....so she will be able to try dresses on without someone holding it against her and telling her to order it in her size.

I don't have pictures of me digitally in some bridesmaid dresses, but I can show you the styles that look good (I'm plus sized).

I also suggest David's Bridal because they'll have dresses for her to try on.

Basically, stick to an A-Line. If she can't do strapless, most of the dresses can have straps added.

Good luck - BTW all the links below are clickable!

All my bms were plus sized, and so am I, I was super worried about picking dresses for them, but finally decided on a style they all felt great in.

Anything with rouching (sp?) on the belly, would be good, or A-line. These were Tea length dresses and I think all my girls looked amazing.

Thanks! That is defantly one of my fav pics from my day.

OP the dresses are by After Six if you are interested. I would suggest taking your MOH (sister I belive it was) to David's and have her try on all kinds of diffrent styles, see what she feels confident in. I would suggest stay away from clingy or shiney materials. Once she finds a style she likes, you can start searching other designers (unless she likes the one at David's and wants that one) that cary that style, that maybe she would like better.Some bridal boutiques may cary larger sizes in samples of BM dresses, but don't count on it. Once she decides on a dress, see if you can find a store near you that has a sample of that one, make sure it looks like it did online (I decided to do this to check the color, the dress I had origanly picked the store that I went to that said they carried them refused to have samples because of how cheaply made they are, and how cheap they looked). Also if she is larger in the bust, she shouldn't be afraid of strapless, when the dresses are altered to fit right they don't slip, and she should look for a longline strapless bra (than again I belive any large and large chested girl should have at least 1 good long line bra!!) I hope this all helps!
