I’ll bet she’ll be a beautiful mother regardless of what she’s wearing Smile

 

My mom never does her hair, doesn’t wear makeup, and she’s shaped very much like an apple Wink  She has a great deal of health problems, so I don’t give a damn what she wears as long as she comes.

@ANGELaaimt:  +1. Weddings are emotional days for moms too – my mom cried a lot, and was on her feet all day running around – so the most important thing is that your mom is comfortable. I’m sure she’ll be happy and glowing no matter what she picks out to wear!

Check out these longs skirts and pants.  She could wear something like these with a top and a longish jacket or even a really pretty soft cardigan like cashmere.  That would both keep her warm and slenderize her hips.  Who knows maybe she’ll even let you but a bit of mascara and lipstick on her for the big day.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe take a look at Tadashi Shoji. I feel like he makes a lot of dresses that fit your criteria and that are also extremely flattering and comfortable.

She has health issues and she wants to be warm and comfortable – and she will be beautiful no matter what. A nice pair of earrings, a necklace, a corsage, even nice hair clips can give her a little more ‘oomph.’ But more than anything, her comfort is important and it doesn’t matter if other people are dressed more nicely than she is.

My mom’s wearing stretch dress pants, a sparkly tank top and a small overcoat – so nothing ornate. She’s comfortable and she’s happy.

@beedazzling:  She could probably have a skirt made for a very reasonable price.  That way she could get an elastic waist and fabric with some stretch, which would be very comfortable for her.  ๐Ÿ™‚

My mother had a dress, but did her own hair and makeup. She had been working all day setting things up and geting my nieces ready. She ended up at the venue in a sweater and jeans. She didn’t have time to change before the ceremony. She was still beautiful because she was my mother.

She changed afterwards for the reception, but it wouldn’t have mattered even if she hadn’t. I only wanted her to feel comfortable and happy.

If I tried to make my mother wear make-up, she probably wouldn’t come to the wedding.  So, I don’t care…because she is my mom, and her being there is FAR more important than some lipstick or whatever.  Who cares?  And please don’t base beauty on makeup and dressy clothing.  Are you going to teach your future children that beauty is based on material things and outward appearances?

I’m sure she will look beautiful no matter what ๐Ÿ™‚ Try asking her if she’d like to get her hair curled or something on the wedding day, maybe at the same salon you’re at? Sometimes it helps to be a mother daughter thing:)
