    Plus size bridesmaid nightmare

    Im starting to stress.  My wedding isn't until next May. I have been actively losing weight this year to make sure I canook my best in my wedding dress. I have dropped a couple of dress sizes already. My bridesmaids on the other hand are quite large girls. I have no issue with this. However im struggling to find bridesmaids dresses that suit them and don't cost the earth. Neither of them wear dresses and so the dresses won't be worn again so I don't want to spend too much. The biggest worry is them putting on more weight. One of the girls has put on a stone and a half in the last 4 month and the other has been consistently putting weight on for the last 4 or 5 years. They are already around a size 20 or 22 which means I can't really go to high street shops. Online worries me as it can take a month or two for dresses to arrive and they might have put more weight on by the time they arrive and then again before the wedding. Ordering cheap dresses worried me as will they be a terrible fit or quality. 

     

    I don't know what at all to do for the best. The dresses will either need sleeves to flatter the girls arms or I'll need separate boleros. This in itself causes stress as they would need to match the dresses. 

     

    Does anyone have any words of wisdom. I want my bridesmaids to look beautiful in dresses that flatter them.

    Do they have to wear bridesmaid dresses? Could they wear a nice classy, smart trouser suit instead or culottes? Or a nice playsuit or jumpsuit?

    That's a really interesting idea. I'm going to look into that. A fraction of the price as well. Thank you xxx

    Hi, I have a plus size bridesmaid (Size 26) and 3 size 12 bridesmaids so looking for dresses were a nightmare but I got them off simply be and could get all 4 dresses the same so no one had to have different dresses - You can order next day delivery so don't have to order until a few months before and they go up to a size 30 so if they put anymore weight on you don't need to have 'that conversation' with them. I buy most of my clothes from there so trust it 110%. They have fab sales from time to time and if you time it right you can get them for a third of the price.

    Good Luck x
