Top 5 Elegant, Modest and Flattering Mother of the Bride Dresses by Tania Olsen Designs

In our years at Fashionably Yours serving customers of all ages, shapes, sizes and styles, we can compile a compacted list of the top 3 qualities mothers look for when dress shopping for their son or daughter's wedding: 

  • Coverage: Modest styles with sleeves that come below the knee. 
  • Elegance: Something regal, beautiful and sophisticated. 
  • Flattering fit: Conceals any undesirable areas while still giving shape. 

Tania Olsen Designs offer sophisticated and unique designs that fit these criteria. With petite to plus sizes 4-30, a gorgeous selection of colours and the most sumptuous fabrics, there's something for every mother for any occasion! We've rated 5 dresses against these 3 criteria to present the most coveted Tania Olsen gowns for mothers of the groom and bride.


1\ Napier TO868 Cocktail Dress by Tania Olsen

The Napier dress is fashioned from a lustrous silk-feel satin that covers the back, drapes gorgeously across the shoulders to form loose sleeves, and meets across the front with a softly gathered wrap. The skirt dips down to the ankles at the back and wraps up to below the knee to show off a little leg. The relaxed fit, soft folds and breezy fabric make this the perfect gown for Spring and Summer weddings.

2\ Chicago PO921 Evening Gown by Tania Olsen 

Chicago may lose some points on coverage for the alluring off-the-shoulder style exposing the upper back, shoulders and decolletage, but it more than makes up for it with elegance. Also, the sleeves are strategically placed to show off the best of your shoulders while concealing the rest of your upper arm. Don't let the figure-hugging mermaid silhouette intimidate you! The relaxed fit of the crossed bodice and sturdy stretch fabric of the Chicago flatters your curves, while the gorgeous bow detail on the back will form the focal point of your look.

3\ Nelson TO876 Evening Gown by Tania Olsen

The Nelson dress gives you a loose and relaxed shape that gives off a timeless and effortless elegance while also allowing for comfort and ease of movement. The true magic of this gown is that it still brings you in at the waist with soft gathers in the skirt and wrapped bodice front. Despite the elegant long sleeves and full length skirt, it does lose coverage points for its plunging V neckline, but to us there's nothing wrong with showing off a little cleavage!

4\ Nancy TO870 Evening Gown by Tania Olsen 

The perfect dress for Autumn and Winter weddings! The soft stretchy jersey covers your arms to the wrist, crossing down across the bodice, meeting the waist in super flattering gathers. The overskirt skirt flows down to the ankles at the back and opens at the front to reveal a fitted lining that sits just above the knee. We absolutely love the layers and strategic ruching on this dress provides the ultimate curve control. The tastefully revealing low V back shows off your shoulder blades.

5\ Novara TO871 Evening Gown by Tania Olsen

Simply stunning! This gown features a relaxed fit bodice that drapes naturally over your torso, with an elegant keyhole back for an alluring flash of skin. The gathers of the skirt are concentrated at the centre front and back, slimming the waist and flowing over any lumps and bumps.  The sensible neckline and full length skirt provide a decent amount of coverage even with the sleeveless design.
