Best women's dress shop north shore of Boston?

Jump to last reply

I am looking for a dress for my son's wedding. I have been to bridal shops and didn't see anything that interests me. I want a long dress but not the typical MOB and MOG manufacturers they show in these shops. I don't want glitter, high waisted, beading, tight and clingy, uncomfortable, matronly, stiff and heavy. I am looking for something flattering to my stomach and core which is thicker than I wish. The wedding is in June.

I know about Nordstrom's, Lord and Taylor's and the department store route. i am not too happy about ordering on line lots of dresses and then returning them, even if its to my local store.

I remember back in the day my mother used to have a few dress shops she would go to that had unique and beautiful dresses for special occasions. Do any of these kinds of specialty stores exist north of Boston? Recently I browsed in Newburyport, and I am wondering about Andover, Marblehead or wherever I can find a specialty store with a nice selection and more than a couple of sizes. Hand painted silks is a possibility, something unique . Any suggestions you have, I will certainly consider. I was hoping to do a little shopping this weekend. Thanks.
