Finding a mother of the bride dress that makes you feel elegant and glamorous can be a challenge as a curvy woman. While there are plenty of gown options online or in stores, you may still struggle to find something that you love and that makes you feel as beautiful as you dream of feeling. 

That’s why we put together this list of tips for how to find an elegant plus size mother of the bride dress!

1. Define Your Waist

The dress styles that look back on any shape or size are those that define your waist, such as A-line gowns, tea length, sheath, or cocktail dresses. Don’t be afraid to consider two-piece options as well! They’re easier to fit since you can buy a separate top and skirt, and they also give your waist more definition.

2. Choose the Right Material

Slimming dresses are often made of structured materials like satin or taffeta, which don’t cling to the body like other fabrics. The way these materials skim the body make for a slimming—and stunning—look!

3. Opt For a Solid Color

While black is known as the most slimming tone, you don’t have to limit your dress search to dark colors. Most solid colors, with the exception of loud, bright hues, create a slimming effect, and jewel tones especially look lovely on any figure.

 

4. Consider Tailoring

The right fit makes all the difference in the world. Even an off-the-rack dress can be tailored to fit your body, and it’s worth the expense to help you feel your best.

 

5. Go For Comfort

At the end of the day, if you don’t feel comfortable in your dress, you won’t look comfortable in photos or feel at ease throughout your daughter’s special day. When choosing your gown, don’t sacrifice style for comfort. Choose a dress that fits in all the right places, makes you feel fabulous, and is easy to dance in!
