@thenextmrsi:  As the full-figured stepmother of a bride preparing for a fall wedding, I am able to suggest several lines of MOB dresses that come in full-figured sizes.  You could then check the manufacturers’ websites for specific retailers in your area.

My dress is from VM by Mori Lee.  Your mom may like some of these styles. You can find them at http://www.morilee.com.  Another vendor is Jade by Jasmine (http://www.jasminebridal.com). One additional vendor that has some beautiful MOB dresses for fuller-figured women is Jordan (http://www.jordanfashions.com).

I hope you and your mother are able to find a dress for her that you both love!

I’ve heard really wonderful things about Bravo Botique in Concord- I believe that the owner will actually customize dresses for you.  I’ve never personally been so this is all just on word of mouth!

I’m not sure about their plus-size selections, but Nordstrom (we went to the one at Natick Mall) has a TON of great MOB dress options. When we went shopping for my mom’s dress, she ended up buying three!

My mother went to Charbonneau’s in Worcester… she had no luck because she’s a size 4, and all of their sample dresses were much, much too large.  The sales people told her MOB dresses aren’t ordered in smaller sizes there because they don’t fit many mothers.  I would definitely call and confirm before driving out there, but it could be worth a shot if none of the closer places work!

Try Madelines Daughter in Portsmouth  NH, or  Christinas in Andover. Also Occasions in Wayland. Good luck!
