Dress for Mom

I was wondering if any of you had recommendations for places to go shopping for my mom's "Mother of the Bride" dress. My mom wants to look pretty and sophisticated, but is worried because she is a buxom lady that she will be strapped with something in a dark ugly color, or something really frumpy.  Any suggestions?

    We found my mom's dress at Macy's and his mom's dress at JC Penny (pic in bio).  We got pretty good deals to.  If  you're looking for something a little fancier or more traditional, you could try David's Bridal or Modern Bride, which both have MOB dresses.  I think DLS's mom found a bridemaid's dress on sale at Modern Bride that she's wearing.
    Good luck!

    We got my mom's dress at 125 Bridal in Plaistow. They were great to work with and have a great selection of MOB dresses. They recently expanded their store, too, so they have even more to choose from now! Good luck!

    My Mom is a hot ticket so she did not want a traditional MOB dress, she went to Gigi at Madeleine's Daughter for her dress! It looked amazing on her, I absolutely loved it! My grandmother went to MD for her dress too!

    My mom has the same body issue but found some great dresses at David's Bridal in Nashua.  She was afraid she would be stuck in an "old lady" looking mother of the bride dress!  Marry & Tux also had a few she really liked.
