So if you’re shopping with, and for mum, some few tips to bear in mind:
1. STYLE AND COMFORT
Taste will differ – your mum needs something that looks good as well as fits her style. If she’s the quiet sort, getting her into a traditional qipao (cheongsam) may yield better results than a dress that’s glamorously showy but suits your theme. Her style should reflect her comfort level; same as you.
If she’s a little on the broad or heavy side, fabric is key to looking good. Fabrics with weight (crepe, duchess satin, and georgette) work better than light ones. Heavy fabrics hold a cut better because they fall correctly rather than cling unflatteringly.
Some designers may choose to use light fabrics but weigh them down with heavy beading, sequin, lining or layering two fabrics (such as lace and satin), which can also work. Bear in mind too that fabrics with a bit of shine will look more formal, and be more suitable for a wedding dinner.
3. DESIGN AND CUT
A design is only limited by how adventurous mums are in their personal styles. A full dress worn with a shrug or a cropped bolero (or jacket) will work for some women.
Generally, separates (a top and skirt, or even a pantsuit) tend to work better for most mums because they’re more flattering and easier to wear. Moreover, these can be mixed and matched with other basic pieces even after the wedding.
