My mom is 5’3″ and about a size 12/14/16 depending on the manufacturer. I know she won’t like a dress from an actual mother of the bride dress store, so I was going to look at places like JCrew and Banana. Do you find that the clothing there fits you well? She has mentioned to me before she doesn’t think it will, but I know she has never tried anything on.

I am 5’4 and usually wear a size 8-10. But I do know JCrew stuff is kind of big sometimes. She sounds like if she is a 12, she would be a size 10 there and so on.

I wore J.Crew for a wedding last year (I am a size 12 and 5’3″) and it worked pretty well. I was able to find styles in my size no problem and they carry a pretty fair number of different silhouettes. Banana is a little bit tougher for me. I find that I size out of their stuff fairly quickly and given the cost, not so much worth it.
Ann Taylor carries wedding stuff. Have you tried there?
