Mother of the Bride/Groom Dresses

Have you been looking for a plus size mother of the bride dress or mother of the groom dress, only to be frustrated that you can’t find anything you can visualize for yourself? We understand. It’s really frustrating to look through picture after picture of a size 2 model looking perfect in whatever she puts on! We’d love to give you the tools to find a mother of the bride dress that’ll look good on you, even if it isn’t shown on a plus size model. Finding the right dress boils down to three things: cut, fabric, and coverage.

How to choose a plus size mother of the bride dress:

Once you filter the entire collection of mother of the bride dresses, you’ll be able to start looking for a style that will flatter you. When thinking about plus size mother of the bride dress options, you want to look for styles that define your waist, such as A-line, tea length, sheath, cocktail, and two-piece. Most dresses that fall into these style categories are available in plus sizes and a lot of them feature a cute matching jacket or bolero.

Which fabrics are best for a mother of the groom dress?

As comfortable as jersey knit or chiffon is, it isn’t the most flattering fabric on every size body. Finding a mother of the bride slimming dress is easy when you look for structured materials such as satin, taffeta, brocade or dupion silk. These fabrics tend to skim the body versus clinging to the body like chiffon and knit blends. With our filtering system you can add these as options, too! Now, what about dress coverage?
