Choosing the right dress
Having predicted the day’s weather, you now have an idea of the type of dress you are after.

We also have an impressive range of plus size sleeveless dresses, for the warmer occasion.

Check out our full range of dresses for a look at further flattering mother of the bride dresses for plus size figures.
Choosing a great skirt
Although many plus size mother of the brides opt for long, flowing dresses, there is nothing to say that you cannot look great in a plus size skirt. Chesca cater to everyone’s needs, stocking plus size skirts which help you show off your curves whilst remaining formal. Our mink lace trim crepe skirt gives you confidence as you greet your guests, and looks even better when combined with a choice from our selection of plus size tops.
Long Sleeve Shrugs
If your daughter or son is having an outdoor wedding, you might choose to grab a complementary shrug to match. Our shrugs are designed for plus size women and offer beautiful patterns and colours. We use a variety of fabrics and colours, including our popular Royal Border Lace Crush Pleat Dress.
Whilst the shrugs aren’t a full-length sleeve, they help keep you warm. If you will be inside these shrugs are beautiful alongside a skirt and blouse combination.
If you are having a wedding reception, you may consider buying an evening dress alongside a blouse and skirt for the reception. Whilst some mother’s go this route, many prefer to pick a long flowing gown that includes floral patterns. This is going to look great during the service and be functional during the party. That way you can just change shoes and you’re ready to tackle the fun evening.
Jackets and coats
We designed our coats to work with our dresses and blouses, helping you to stay colour coordinated all day long. Our range of beautiful mother of the bride jackets and coats keep you stylish, as you stay warm. This is an essential for those with outside weddings or receptions.
Scarfs and shawls
The unpredictability of British seasons should not leave you uncomfortable during one of the most important days of your life. A shawl or a scarf can give you an option for a fashion accessory during the day, or give you much-needed warmth as the weather turns!
Our selection of scarfs and shawls has been designed to suit our other apparel. The light blue / pink printed scarf can suit dresses of either colour, or it could be worn to add colour to a plainer dress. For navy and darker plus size dresses, our navy / black chiffon and sequin scarfs add glamour to help you sparkle!
Our selection of shawls is equally elegant, including our popular soft peach chiffon shawl. Many mother’s choose this to add an extra dimension to their dress whilst keeping wrapped up.
