Plus Size Mother of the Bride

Does anyone know of a good place to find a large selection (in stock and on the rack) of plus size mother of the bride dresses?

Re: Plus Size Mother of the Bride

  • They are not off the rack but there is a store in Manalapan called The Curvy Bride that had a nice selection.

    Also, Nordstrom has a decent sized plus sized department with a lot of gowns.
  • East West Bridals has a decent selection of plus size mothers gowns, but I'm not sure if many can be purchased off the rack.

    I second Nordstroms.  They have a great selection online and a fantastic return policy.

  • David's has plus size, too. The one in Paramus has a pretty big department for mothers & bridesmaids. I mention bridesmaids because my mom actually wore a bridesmaid dress as mother of the bride at my sister's wedding.
  • Very few stores offer MOB dresses off the rack.   Some Nordstroms will have them.   My mom is wearing a Tadashi Soji dress from Nordstrom which we ordered on line.  

  • My MIL is plus sized and found a dress off the rack at DB in Paramus.

    My mom's dress was also from Nordstrom.

  • La Belle Boutique in Jersey City, NJ - my mother got her dress there and we also got our bridesmaid dresses there - they are excellent to work with!

    My mom was a nightmare diva about this. Seconding the Curvy Bride, they are very nice and helpful there, though not off the rack.

    It's near Castle Couture though, which also had a few good off the rack options, though I hated the busy prom-y atmosphere.

    My wedding is in 5 weeks. My mom just got her dress yesterday from east west bridal. She had limited options but they can get her a dress in a week.

    I believe most stores usually consider plus size to be 14 and up.
