kkkatieB12:  that sounds so very frustrating!  

Have you tried Dillard’s?  

Good luck, Bee!

kkkatieB12:  How tall is she? Is there a chance some almost-floor-length dresses on models would be floor-length on her?

kkkatieB12:  No advice on a specific dress, but does she meet those restrictions every single day? If so, that sounds very difficult!! And if not, maybe that would put things into perspective a bit?

Perhaps if you had a dress with sheer lace that fit all of the other criteria you could have a liner put in behind the lace?

Where does she ordinarily find her dresses for formal functions? Other weddings and such?

Are you willing to budge on the color issue? I’ve never felt the MOB absolutely needs to match or coordinate with the bridesmaids and wedding colors. I think the wedding color topic, and trying to make absolutely everything match, can become an obsession sometimes.

And personally, all other things being equal, I think your desire for your mom not to look like a grandma needs to take a backseat to your mom’s comfort level. I do think it’s very sweet of you to pay for her dress, though.

I wonder if there is an LDS store you could find one on. Mormons are very conservative in their dress to be able to accommodate their undergarments and adhere to their values of modesty. If there are any Mormon bees perhaps you guys could weigh in. I am not Mormon but my best friend growing up was. Just a thought perhaps.
