The hall is rented, the wedding dress has been bought, and the catering and flower arrangements are all underway. As exciting as it is to know that your son or daughter will soon be married, you may be stressed out because you still don’t have anything to wear.
Finding the perfect Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom dress can be challenging, especially when you are plus size. If you don’t get style and fit just right, you risk looking matronly. Here are some pretty Spring & Summer Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom dresses, designed to flatter plus-size figures, and make you look modern and fabulous.
A Sweetheart Neckline is Always Flattering
A great way to flatter your figure when your middle is your trouble spot is to put the attention up near the face, which is exactly what this stunning plus size Mother of the Bride does.
The gorgeous sweetheart neckline on this dress creates a powerful focal point that draws the eye up and towards the face. Sweetheart neckline also gives off a sweet, romantic vibe, that is perfect for a wedding. Rose gold jewelry and accessories is a nice way to complement the pretty blush shade of the dress.
Wrap Style Enhances A Full Bustline
A Mother of the Bride or Groom dress doesn’t necessarily have to be full length. And depending on the formality of the wedding, it might not be appropriate to wear a long dress. If you’re looking for something in a cocktail length, this is a great choice.
This chic sky blue dress with the pretty wrap top is very flattering for gals with a full bust because wraps top lifts and separates the breasts. You don’t get that matronly uni-boob look with a wrap top.
I know a lot of women prefer longer sleeves to keep their arms covered which is another thing that this dress has going for it. And can we talk about the mesh skirt with floral tapestry and sequins? Wow! It’s a chic and sophisticated look. Make sure you pair it with silver bag and accessories to really bring out the silver in the skirt.
A Shift Dress is a Solution for a Thick Waist
If you are thick through the middle, the answer isn’t a big baggy dress. A shift dress is. Shift dresses shoot straight down and are neither boxy or tight, so they make you look long and lean.
This metallic shift is a great option for a Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom any time of the year. Gold and silver are considered neutrals and always look elegant and sophisticated.
Floaty Sleeves Camouflage Heavy Arms
This lacy mother of the bride gown in pink blush is a godsend for gals who feel self-conscious about their arms. The delicate capelet does the trick to camouflage any jiggly bits, and it makes the dress look rather elegant too.
Another great feature of this dress is the slimming A-line cut. See how this dress skims the body then gently flares out, bringing balance to the hip and thigh area? It’s floaty and feminine!
Black is Always Elegant and Slimming
It used to be that no-one – guests, bridesmaids or Mother of the Bride or Groom – wore black to a wedding but that rule is now passé. These days black is totally appropriate, especially if it is a formal evening wedding, and thank goodness for that because we all know black is very slimming. So if you want to wear black, even in summer, go for it!
The thing I like about this black plus size mother of the bride (or groom) gown is the modern V-neckline which also helps elongate and slim. The rosette pattern on the skirt is a perfect touch for a summer wedding, and the short sleeves keep you cool when the air conditioning doesn’t.
