There’s a MOB dress thread on here somewhere. I think one of the themes that emerged from that is that Nordstrom is a great place to look.

My mom looked everywhere, before finding hers on clearance at Belk. We looked at several department stores togther, and I remember seeing lots of great dresses in the petites section.

Most of the dresses you find for moms at bridal salons are too low-cut for most women in their 70s. Much better luck at dept. stores.

Good luck!

@ProfessorGirl:  My mom found her dress at Nordstrom, too! She is very petite, 5’1” or so, but she ended up getting a dress that hit just below the knee so she did not need alterations. I would start at major department stores, they had a great range of dresses with varying levels of maturity/age appropriateness, and Nordstrom does in-house alterations.

I found my MOB dress at a local bridal salon. I was able to pick a dress I liked, in the length I liked (most had 3 length options), and in the exact color I wanted.  That opened up so many more options for me. I chose a designer who had more youtful type dresses since I am only in my 40s, but more traditional type MOB dresses are easy to find.
