I have seen really nice long dresses on clearance at Dillards in all seasons. I think the key is being patient.

Have you tried Catherines?

My mom and a friend (sizes 22 and 26) had really good luck as the dress barn.  A large selection and affordable prices in here size.  You may also try Lane Bryant or Avenue as they sometimes have nice plus size dresses (try online first).

Have you tried someplace simple like JCPenny or Sears? I know they have affordable plus size eveningwear.

a friend of mine got her wedding dress from bestbridaprices.com for about $150 it wasn’t full length and I believe it was organza and about the same size you’re looking for. Maybe try that site?

I am going to suggest David’s Bridal although some have had pretty bad experiences there. I think you can order some things online though so maybe you can avoide a potentially bad customer service experience.

Here’s what my mom wore.  She got it at Macy’s.  My mom is 5’7″, so just a bit shorter than yours, and they seem to be about the same size.


ETA: Mom had to have this hemmed just a bit for it to fit her.

My mom (size 22)  just received her dress which she ordered from J C Penny’s..(I found it on their website). Go under plus size dresses and you’ll find it. (Mauve) It was $120 I believe…good luck!

There are definitely more options online at stores like Nordstrom.  You could always order online and take it back to the store if it doesn’t work.  I’m really liking Adrianna Pappel dresses as MOB dresses.  You might take a look at those.

I ordered my MOB plus size gown from http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz  they have a real bridal store with another name Rowan Bridal or something.  I got my wonderful gown for $129.00  They have lots of wonderful styles for us plus-sized women.  (I am petite, so I needed mine shortened).  I felt beautiful.  I loved it and it was well made.  It was just what I was hoping for.  So check them out!  By The Way they also have other gowns-Wedding, Bridesmaid or Best Man etc.
