My mother is buying a bridesmaid dress. We looked at MOB dresses but they all seemed to old. My mom doesn’t look her age at all (she has great genetics that I hope I inherited lol) so I wanted to get her a dress that looks mature without looking old. All the formal/prom dresses were too young though. So I gave her this Bill Levkoff BM dress to try on and we loved it! It fit perfectly, like it was made for her. The back has a low “V” so it gives the dress a little sexiness without looking to risque for a mom lol. I ordered the applique that is photoshopped onto the waistband in this picture and I’m having it sewn on by my seamstress.



Definitely make it fun! I set up an appointment at a bridal salon for my mom to try on dresses. I even sat on the couch and made her get up on the pedastool and model every dress in the mirror. I think she really enjoyed it and it made her feel special!

ETA: my mom’s dress will be in the Navy color shown. This is my bridesmaid’s dress. They will be in red.

It took my mom forever to find a dress. She wanted to go short, not long. We found that most dresses were either too young ie strapless and lower cut or very grandmaish. She finally found a Jasmine dress she really liked in a silver color. She won’t let me post the picture of her in it. But we are both very happy with it. My FMIL is having the same trouble and still hasn’t found anything. I think maybe the bridesmaid dress is a good option
