    Okay so my future MIL is having a hard time, she does not wear dresses! Nope not her thing... so she is now looking for a beachy looking pant suit.... she wants a top with flowy sleeves to hide her arms (she has a arm phobe) I have been searchin and cannot find anything really beachy that fits that ............ i was hoping maybe someone had the same situation and could lend a hand.

    Point me in a direction to find something nice.............

      Does it have to be a suit? How about some light trousers, say linen? then a flowery top that has got to be easier to find

        Is she regular sized or plus sized?

        My mom wore pants and light jacket and shell.

        JC Penny on line has lots of options. Now will be the time to start looking since the summer clothes are coming out.

        There is a thread for mother's attire somewhere on here, if you do a search.

          My MIL did the same thing. She wore a linen tunic top and linen pants and she was comfortable, cool and looked beautiful. We got a lot of the wedding parties clothes from island importer... here is a link and they have tunics and pants here.

            My mom has arm phobe too, and she shops a lot at coldwater creek and j. jill. Also department stores probably have tons of stuff but this time of year might be out of season. When is she needing to find something by?

                  Hello! My FIL will wear dresses, however she too has big arms and such and found something online. I would do as search on Shopzilla.com for the folowing designers, +
                  Adrianna Papell, Maggie London and also try JcPenney online. JCP is not my speed per se, but my future in-laws are on the large side and find nice things all the time. Wish you well!

                    What about a pair of pants like these?

                    I have a pair I found at Macy's. The site I posted from is for sizes 12+. You should be able to find them online easily though.
