1. Chiffon A-line dress with sheer neckline and sleeves

This navy mother of the bride dress style is so chic and adaptable!

A-line dresses flatter all body types. You can really look and feel your best in this silhouette! Look for a built-in belt to cinch the waist to accentuate your hourglass shape.

Chiffon is airy and lightweight, making it a great fabric for warm summer weddings. The mesh, as well, makes the bodice nice and breathable. The sheer mesh bodice also gives you a sultry illusion sweetheart neckline, while providing coverage. It's the best of both worlds.

5. Jersey mermaid dress with silver embroidery

On a day like your daughter's wedding, it's normal to want to wear a little extra sparkle. Here's a navy mother of the bride dress that satisfies that desire.

Navy is the perfect backdrop for metallic embroidery. Not only does it make the colors pop, but it also allows you to see every detail of the design. In this case, the embroidered designs also accentuate your curves, elongate the body, and slim the waistline.

If you were looking for a dress that shows off your curves, this one is it! Mermaid dresses are designed to hug your body. The skirt flares below the knee, creating an hourglass shape. To emphasize this shape even further, look for a V-neckline.

To complete this look, find a stunning silver pair of heels. The slit in the skirt will give them the attention they deserve!
