Never mind that my mom is refusing to get hair and makeup done. I can’t be with her to go dress shopping! My mom avoids “fancy” events because she has an odd shaped figure and clothes shopping is not fun for her.
I am looking for something for her online that she can either order, or use as a guide to help pick a dress.
Her body shape is Apple for sure. She is 5’4″ probably 160lbs and 38D(orDD) in bust. Her legs are in good shape, but her shape reminds me of the apple from the Fruit of the Loom commercials (sad but true).
I’m looking for dresses in these colors: champagne, navy, royal purple, plum, chocolate, emerald green. (Think peacock feather colors).
Any help is appreciated because a battle is about to ensue over this.

Check Nordstrom Online. My mom was really picky and found about five dresses there that she loved, and they were really affordable. Good luck!!!

@MrsJoon: This reminded me of my mom. She asked me yesterday if I would be mad if she didn’t pay to get her hair done and then told me not to spend the money on buying her a corsage. She is walking me down the aisle so I told her I would pay for her hair and corsage because I want her to look nice in pictures. Then she decided she is going to wear a floor length black 3/4 sleeve dress (looks like she’s going to a funeral) because she said it’s slimming and thinks black is the only color that looks good for formal dresses. Or she said she’s wearing pants. So I found this dress at Nordstrom that she said she will consider. I think it look like it will hide a lot of the “flaws” that my mom wants to cover up. Or I suggested the pants suit below because I think it looks fancy at least (still not my favorite though).
So long story short, I would recommend looking at Nordstrom.

Thanks for the suggestions. My awesome FH went over to have dinner at my folks’ house (I have school 4 nights a week so it’s nice that he can do that). He told her that she needs to go with the plan and it’s not about her. A guy willing to put her in her place is definitely worth marrying

I feel you. I can just see my mom waiting until the last minute or buying 5 dresses and waiting until the day of to decide. She also said she won’t wear floor length…even though she is MOB…I can’t imagine why she would want to look so casual in cocktail length at her daughter’s wedding. whatevs.
