- Wedding: October 2010
So I am not sure if there are many brides out there who have been worried about their mom finding a dress they felt comfortable in. My mom is 60 though she didn’t want a dress that made her feel too much like a grandmother. She wanted modest but flattering as you see she has that wonderful post menopause belly (but still on her thin frame). Well we went to a place and though she only wears a size 12 or so it was for plus size. It was a boutique and let me say they really knew how to dress women of all sizes and could always order anything in any size (even my size 6 he said). Well here are the results. Our wedding will be in the evening but not stuff formal so she wasn’t excited about a satin gown. I think it is fun and I was doubtful seeing pics of this and hanging on the rack but it looked great on. It hid the belly VERY well. Also it is seperates so it is comfortable and she can use the pieces again under a nice jacket.
My mom is older and has different style than me but I thought this dress was very well fitting to her and the event. And she felt pretty which is hard to do these days as she ages and her body changes.
I just thought I would pass this out to you girls who might be worried about their mom finding somethign they are comfortable in. Oh and one more thing… when dressing her body I was really surprised that the things us youngins do to camoflague that part of our body is just about the opposite of what they want to do. I was really surprised working with her to find the dress.
Here is a link to the dress she got.
Oh and if you guys found other dresses that look good on that age women please post because my FMIL is still out there looking and has the same older body type.
Lets all help our moms out!
