My mom got hers as a bridesmaids dress from David’s Bridal…obviously there’s lots of full length choices in the Bridesmaid or Best Man section, but here’s a nice MOB dress as well:

What is your Mom’s body type?  Any “problem areas” she’d like to hide?  Also, what length would she want — would she be open to a shorter length, or does it have to be floor length?

@PrincessDiva: In person, that dress is more gold than champagne.  My mom tried it on.  It just wasn’t a great fit for her.

Zippylef nailed it with the Jade line!!  I thought my mother’s search for a dress was going to be the worst part of all!  My poor mother, though she means well, is soooo picky 🙂  I actually used to work at a bridal store and this was such a blessing!  I took her to the store that I used to work at and she tried on probably three dresses… but as soon as she put on this Jade gown… we all knew it was the one!!!  I’m not lying – I did a happy dance!  This is a one piece gown that has sheer sleeves with enough embroidery that would cover a modest mom, but it is still very flattering on all body types – no matter the age! they have a lot of different colors!

I hope this helps!!

All of these are from Nordstroms.  It was a bit tricky because most of the MOB dresses have boleros and you said your Mom didn’t want to wear a 2 piece dress:

Would you consider a dark bronze or an espresso dress?
