Pear and Hourglass Shapes
Here are my picks for some of the prettiest Mother’s Day dresses just in time for the special occasion. Most of the dresses are available in retail stores for easy buying. But, even after Mother’s Day, you will look great in these versatile dresses at any time. Even though I am suggesting certain styles for an ideal fit, these dresses will look good on more than one shape. I love fit and flare dresses with a 50s flair. Here, I am wearing the custom eShakti Shawl Collar Surplice Cotton Check Dress. My measurements are provided to eShakti and they fit me perfectly. Fit n flare shapes are great for pear and hourglass shapes because they follow the natural indented curve of the waist.
This totally sassy dress will show off an apple shape perfectly. Show your lovely legs with the above-the-knee flirty ruffle hem. Plus it is polyester with a hint of spandex for extra comfort. Available from Dillards in sizes 1x, 2x, and 3x. Pair with great ankle-strapped sandals in black.
I love the Lane Bryant Twist Neck Maxi Dress. The self-tie belt helps to define the waist of women with banana shapes or whose bust, waist, and hip measurements are closely aligned. What is so awesome is that this dress comes in FIVE different colors including prints. The dress is made of 95% Rayon/5% Spandex so it gives as you move.
Okay, okay, so it is not a dress, but how could I resist this beautiful option? Want a little color? The Eloquii full printed jumpsuit has it and more. The back elastic and wide leg make it great for any shape.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Plus Size Paisley-Print Belted Midi Dress
The Michael Kors belted midi dress is the perfect combination of print and pretty. It comes with a fabulous belt to accentuate any waist and has a hi-lo design and sheer hem to bring interest to the eye. The flare bottom is complementary to all shapes and sizes. It is available at Macy’s.
This lively dress features a tiered hem and comes in a print and solid orange color. It can be worn with or without the belt for versatility. Because the material is 92% polyester and 8% spandex, there is a bit of stretch for extra comfort. Zelie for She is a black-owned and operated brand.

Happy Mother’s Day
No matter what dress you choose, have a great time on Mother’s Day. I never had biological children but my beautiful family always showers me with gifts for having a small hand in nurturing my nieces and nephews. Enjoy your day and look great doing it.
Until Next Time…
