I could be wrong, but I think David’s Bridal has mother of the bride dresses? I’ve heard they usually have a good selection of plus sized dresses, so they might have some good options for your mom?

And I also know another local girl who’s mom found a great plus sized dress at JCPenny.

Or possibly she could look online? Stores like Nordstrom have really good return policies, so maybe she could order a couple options (with no annoying sales people), and just send back what she doesn’t like or doesn’t fit?

Good luck! I know my mom couldn’t find anything she liked in the right colors, and had to end up sewing her own dress and jacket.

Yes!! I am petite/full-figured, and I got a Fantastic MOB gown last year from http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz  I was glad to know they also have a store “Rowan’s Bridal” in PA/NJ area I think it is.  Because I am only 4’10”  It was not petite sized, but I had the gown altered when I got it.  They had it in stock (last year) and I had to order it just 2 months before the wedding, and I felt gorgeous in it and got lots of compliments on it.  And the price was excellent!!!  Feel free to contact me if you like!  Make sure she orders by her measurements because I had to order a huge size to get my regular size-so don’t let her get discouraged by it. The quality was awesome. My dressmaker commented on it-she didn’t know how little I paid 😉

My mom isnt shorter, shes 5’8″, but we found great options at Nordstrom at the Westfield center is SF.  Most bridal salons carry some options as well (at least, they do in Sonoma County). I also hear that JCPenny has good options.   Good Luck!!
