How to prepare mother of the brides dresses for wedding | ByCouturier

There are many choices available when shopping for plus size mother of the bride dresses. The styles and selections available in plus sizes are better than ever. Here are some guidelines for the plus size mother of the bride to look great and comfortable on their daughter's wedding.


  1. Have an idea about fabrics, their textures, and quality. Every good clothing website will state the type of fabric used on the description summary of the dress. Mother of the bride dresses are usually made of synthetic fabrics nowadays, due to lower costs and their ability to be wrinkle-free.


  1. Every woman must have an idea of which colors looks good on them. Discuss with your daughter on the colors of the wedding and make sure the color you choose for the dress coordinate with the rest of your bridal party and wedding theme. The color for bridesmaid dresses is an important factor to keep in mind when searching for the perfect mother of the bride dress. Make their dresses cohesive with each other, and so they will look good together in those memorable photographs.


  1. Know your figure type. If you are hip heavy, the a-line wedding dressesare definitely for you. If you are busty, stay away from clingy fabrics and low bodices because this style will accentuate your fullness. Jackets, whether long or the shorter bolero styles, always manage to hide a flaws like heavier arms.


  1. Give ample time--at least 4 months--before the wedding to find a plus size mother's dress. Do not make the common mistake of trying to lose those few extra pounds before the wedding and holding off buying your dress until then. You will be surprised that there are not too many physical shops out there that carry the style you want in a plus size. You may have to browse online stores for mother of the bride dress in plus size. They carry the latest styles and if they do not have your size in stock, they can surely special order one for you. Remember that every manufacturer size their dresses differently, especially special occasion dresses. So, it is helpful if you know what your body measurements are before you shop and then purchase online.
