If you buy something new, keep in mind that you it’s probably going to be a Sheva brachos dress/outfit for you too.
But, it doesn’t have to be fancy. Simple and classic is elegant too.

The store Beauti-full in Monsey goes up to size 54

You might find something here and have a dressmaker fix the front so it's appropriate. Mazal Tov!

There are 2 stores in Lakewood I can think of that have large size, dressy clothing.

If you have a nice black skirt and a black shell in very good condition, you might want to try some of these tops.

Those tops aren't for the mother of the chasson. They're not elegant enough.

You may have to wear a shell or get a lining for this-- https://www.dillards.com/p/xsc.....50218

You can use the jacket from this one and wear it on top of a regular top and skirt of the same color-- https://www.zappos.com/p/alex-.....lor/9

Mazel Tov! I'm just one size smaller than you, and I just wore a simple but elegant black dress to my son's tnoyim. I have found that buying up a size and having a seamstress do some minor alterations so that the fit is right for me helps a lot. Also, make sure your shaitel is fresh, your makeup is perfect and your shoes are elegant. It goes a long way when the dress isn't very fancy.

Where do you live? Based on that we may be able to help you more.

I think your best bet would be to take a simple black dress that looks good on you and then go to the trimming store with a maven and you can really dress it up like that. It may end up costing a nice amount, but you'll have a dress that you will feel comfortable in and it will look really good. Bhatzlocha! Smile and Mazel Tov!!

I own this one, and its quite flattering.

Also try kiyonna. You'll need to fill in the neckline, but they have nice dresses.
