Dresses for the mother of the bride can be stunning – you just have to know where to find them. Bomb headquarters, under the direction of Katya Wildman, has been designing outfits and dresses for occasions such as weddings for over two decades. With her knowledge and range of high-quality fabrics, combined with silhouettes that understand and flatter the female figure, her clothes are in great demand, also by celebrity chefs and television personalities, Nigella Lawson.
BLOVED has five best-selling dresses from Bombshell HQ that are perfect for a stylish mother of the bride. Most bombshell dresses are offered in UK sizes 8-22 and are available for worldwide shipping subject to applicable terms and conditions.
1950s elegance inspired for Dior
The timeless elegance of the Bombshell “Grace” dress (available in Pacific Blue, Emerald Green and Heron Blue) is undeniable. The cut is a classic princess line, with supporting sculpture around the chest for a natural curve. The stand-up collar and the continuous button placket are created for maximum effect and the concealed button placket at the front with the Beat tie flatters the stomach area.
With additional structure from the detachable mesh petticoat, this dress is perfect for twisting the night away after the speeches and dessert. If you like the collar and like the idea of having something different from the average dress, then this outfit is sure to shine.
For Grace Kelly Chic
The Gold Bombshell ‘Edge of the Shoulder’ midi dress exudes effortless elegance and grace. The gold that runs through the cream-colored brocade fabric is heavenly. It’s the perfect off-the-shoulder style with a clever and flattering design. It offers a wide neckline while remaining comfortable underneath and the sleeve length looks chic on any figure. The skirt sits just below the knee, a great length for curvy figures.
FOR LUXURIOUS DETAILING
If you are top-heavy, the Sarong Bombshell Dress with Invitation Collar (available in sapphire blue and navy with white trim) is for you. This sarong-inspired occasion outfit is designed using soft stretch fabric to flatter!
We love the hidden panels, the clever soft draping and the artificial sarong panel for the stomach area. The ¾ sleeves extend the arms and the neckline makes everyone feel confident and beautiful. A simple zip at the back and below the knee length makes this dress a wedding favorite.
FOR HOURGLASS OOMPH
A red carpet favorite, Nigella Lawson has bought over ten of Bombshell’s Confident dresses (available in red, Kensington Garden Aqua, and limited edition animal print). Flattering, elegant and timeless, this dress presents the most fabulous mother of the bride!
The magic of this dress is its versatility and beautiful hourglass shape. It sits just below the knee, has a sleeve and an adjustable neckline at the cross. The bodice is expertly designed to flatten the abdominal area. A version with cap sleeves is also available in certain designs and is perfect for summer weddings. This is the dress for any occasion and will make any mother of the bride feel like she has a million dollars without compromising on comfort.
FOR THE WONDERFUL WOW FACTOR
There is something absolutely elegant about the limited edition Chrysanthemums Dark Green Tea Dress by Bombshell. The print is bold and yet subtle. It’s hard to take your eyes off the rich dark green adorned with pink and pale yellow flowers reminiscent of Lake Como, Italy, where it comes from.
Prints are an unorthodox choice for festive wear, but this unique dress is a great choice if you want to stand out from the crowd. This versatile style goes well with most body shapes. The subtle length extends below the knee, the sleeves flatter perfectly and the cute buttons on the front ensure a bit of age-appropriate fit!
