If you don't want all of your bridesmaids to wear the exact same dress, you'll find a lot of really great options at retail stores like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Macy's. Now, before you start envisioning yards of beige pleated jersey and matching beaded jackets, take a look at this:
This JS Boutique Beaded Mesh beauty (available in Eggplant, shown, Chocolate and Black) comes in sizes 14-24. Any bridesmaid would be lucky to dance the reception away in this dress. And she might even wear it again!
Here's one more that I love love love - it's a Robbie Bee sleeveless dress in raspberry, with a subtle animal print belted waist. The straps are wide enough to carry a full bra, which is nice for Bombshells with larger busts.
