@mshoagie:  My mom had a hard time finding a dress too.  What was w/ all the strapless tight stuff on models younger than me?!  

Siri has some real MOB’s on their webpage.  Their stuff is on the spendy side, but they are made locally, made well, and nearly all of their stuff is silk.  The shantungs and dupionis have a nice stiffness that is friendly to squish.  They have lots of portrait collared jacket and long-sleeve styles that also made my mom more comfortable.

Edit…forgot the link:

We are SO THERE with you. I showed my mom some of the MOB dresses on websites and she just shook her head… how is she supposed to have any idea what they will look like on an actual middle-aged body?

Here’s one website for a place in Toronto that uses “real” women in their site, so she can at least get a feel for shapes and silhouettes. I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the place where my mom got hers, I remember they had a great website. I’ll put my thinking cap on for you…

@bakerella: She looks great!!!  Can I borrow this pic for inspiration for my Mom?  She will want her arms covered, and I am trying to talk her into knee length.

I totally agree! I think it’s ridiculous the models they use. I mean really, unless they popped you out at 13 and you’re getting married at 16, they will never be that young. Here’s my mom:

Okay. I found the site and it’s been revamped is now full of 30 year old MOBs, LOL! Sorry 🙁 That first one I posted is way better!

@MrsBrightSkies: Absolutely! My mom has fantastic legs so we wanted to show them off 🙂 The top was gorgeous, it had lots of little beads on it. You can sort of tell in the photo. My mom is 5′ nothing, so on a taller woman this may end up being a touch bit shorter, LOL!

@MrsBrightSkies: Here’s my Mother-In-Law too. Same sort of style, but a bit more flair with the collar. 

Btw, I’m loving all these photos of happy moms!!! They all look gorgeous!
