I have a Macbook Pro w/ Retina display (A1502), running Win 7 on bootcamp.
I also have 2 LG 25UM64 monitors. The optimal resolution for these monitors is 2560x1080. However, so far as I can tell I can only hit this resolution if I'm connected through HDMI, for which the MBPro only has one port. The thunderbolt ports won't go past 1920x1080, and I tried an HDMI to USB adapter without any luck.

I'm wondering if there's a way to get this second monitor to go to full resolution. Hoping someone knows how. Thanks!

There are USB adapters for MAC that will support that resolution. If those monitors support displayport, then try this one: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-DisplayPort-External-Adapter-USB32DPPRO/dp/B008CXFM64

Thanks! I've actually got this one presently, so I see what you're talking about with the max res. Thanks for the heads-up!
