I sent you a private message.  My mother ended up with a beautiful and elegant mother of the bride dress after we went through the same dilema.  She’s looking to re-sell hers now.

Several designers also have their dresses in Plus Sizes…Cameron Blake dresses are really nice.

My Future Mother-In-Law got hers at Nordstrom’s…but she’s not a plus size. My mom is a pluz size and I kid you not, she found hers in perfect condition at a thrift store. If she doesn’t find what she’s looking for at AA, she might just take a look at some consignment stores.

I’d say to try David’s.  That’s where my mom got hers.  It’s a bridesmaids’ dress but doesn’t look like one IMO.  And they have tons of different MOB dresses too.

My mom is a size 20 By The Way.

I would try Nordstrom.com, Macy’s, or Saks.  My mom found a dress at Saks that looked amazing.  It was a bit on the expensive side, but she can wear it to any cocktail party, wedding, or special event in the future.

Oh I can totally relate.  My mom is a little big bigger, 1x/2x or 16/18 about.  And well, she didn’t want to show off arms or legs so it really limits her choices and it’s hard enough when shopping in the plus size department for “finery” as my mom and grandma call it.  She tried on the long dresses but it didn’t do anything for her figure… just made her look bigger I thought.  Then I saw a nice dress top by Alex Evenings at Macys (also carried at Nordstroms).  It was perfect and she already had some dressy pants!  There are so many mom’s that are in this category so I’d love to help out!
