Mother of the bride - Plus Size

Plus size outfits that are elegant and flattering

             Perfect for any shape


The Ann Balon Plus Styles are especially designed and cut to flatter the fuller figure. Ann has paid particular attention to small details, from the width of the straps, the proportions of the sleeves, the cut of the neckline, the weight of the material, to the overall comfort of the fit. The Ann Balon unstructured look works in harmony with the body, respecting curves, hiding bumps and bringing graceful flowing movement.

Plus size dresses and outfits by Ann Balon are the ultimate combination of glamour and elegance, luxury and comfort with the versatility to wear both formally and informally. Choose with confidence from Ann Balon’s range of beautiful plus size dress and jacket combinations and elegant 3 piece outfits. Most plus styles are available in XL – 4XL, size 16–26 (style Fortuna also available up to 5XL and style Greta  up to 6XL) and in a tasteful choice of soft pastel colours or stronger vibrant tones for all seasons and occasions.



“Just occasionally you come across a collection with such an individual personality that you know it will be a top choice every season, especially for mother of the bride or groom or that ever important special occasion. Floating fabrics, exquisite Italian lace with delicate applique and subtle sparkle, and a dazzling colour range are the signature at Ann Balon. Sophisticated, stylish and wonderfully easy-to-wear, this glamorous label shows respect for curves, which makes it ideal for all shapes and sizes. Jackets are softly shaped and elegant skirts, dresses and pants are flattering and for the plus size there’s always clever elements designed to instill confidence.”
