4 or 5 are both amazing on her! 5 is younger looking, 4 more glitzy. Not keen on the pastels for her.

I love #4. In my opinion, some of the other dresses are too plain or too old looking. 4 is elegant and let’s her stand out in a good way!

I vote for 5! I think 3 and 8 are the least flattering.

#1, #4, amd #5 are my favorite! (with #2 being least favorite).  She does look great in all of them though!

#4 is my favorite.  It’s looks really nice on her, but doesn’t look too “young” like I think some of the others do. (I think it’s the color I really like….)

Wow, your mom has the perfect figure for clothes! 

I like Dress 1, Dress 5, and Dress 4 the best, in that order.  

I feel like pastels don’t flatter her much.

1 and 5 are my favourites.  The rest are either matronly, too casual, or bridesmaidsy.

#1 for sure.  Some are way too matronly for her and some are a bit too bridal for my liking.  #1 is definitely my favorite by a landslide

#5 most definitely! #7 would be my runner up!

Wow indeed your mom has an awesome figure! #5 would be my first choise and #7 the second, but whatever you choose I think she will look lovely

I disagree with the popular opinion here. I think #3 is the most suitable in style and shape. It’s the most motherly and gentle, yet elegant and flattering.
This is not a prom, after all.

tbear:  I like # 1.  Very pretty!  Honestly, a lot of them are a bit “maid of honor” style but not # 1!
