Question Tailtyping female bettas..

Does anyone have a good method for telling the difference between a veiltail female, and a plakat female? The two littlest girls in my sorority are definitely veiltails, but I'm wondering if the 3 bigger girls might be plakats.. They all seem to have shorter finnage with very well defined rays..I really can't be sure.. is there something i should look for? Thanks :)

Added pics, the first two are of one of the girls I'm wondering about, and the last pic is of the two I'm sure (at least I think I am) are veiltails..
