Can I ask what size she wears? She might want to check out J. Crew, although I don’t think they go past a 14. I’m very petite, so I usually have to order their petite sizing, but I love it. I’ve also found they run a little large, and have very flattering fits. For example, most places I wear a 4, but I can easily wear a J. Crew 2. Otherwise, I’d suggest Nordstrom, which has better extended sizing.

My FSMIL is short and full figured, she raves about Jones New York Petite Plus. I think it’s carried at a lot of department stores. Hope that helps!

My mom is petite, full figured and very stylish (very professional looking) She Raves over Kay Unger clothes.  The fit and the features of them are phenomenal.

She ended up buying a skirt/jacket silk suit (she wanted separates to mix later on) and they fit perfectly, but she does a lot of those styles.

I can so relate!!!  I am in the wedding and I am 5′ 3″ and wear a 16w or 18 now.

I went to Carson Pirie Scott and found R&M has nice dresses.  I was insistent on a jacket to cover the large arms, I just personally think it looks terrible not covered.
