The Thule Passage 3 bike model, part # TH911XT would be an excellent choice for you. The rack has a 35 lb per bike weight capacity, and features padded cradles and anti-sway cradles to keep the bikes from swaying back and forth and hitting each other or the rear of the vehicle.

To carry ladies bikes, or bikes with a sharply angled top tube, a frame adapter bar like part # 64005 is recommended. The adapter bar spans the distance between the seat post and the handlebar gooseneck, providing a level attachment point for the bike to attach to the rack. Carrying the bikes at an angle can reduce ground clearance.

I've linked you to the installation instructions for the rack, as well as to a product demonstration video.
