I’ve been having a little think about it and It is rare for Mrs to be written in a non-abbreviated form, and the unabbreviated word lacks a standard spelling. In literature it may appear as missus or missis in dialogue. A variant in the works of Thomas Hardy and others is “Mis’ess”, reflecting its etymology. Misses has been used but is ambiguous, as this is a commonly used plural for Miss .

Don’t forget, the plural of Mrs is from the French: Mesdames. This may be used as-is in written correspondence, or it may be abbreviated Mmes.

It came from “mistress” originally but lacks a standard spelling. I did not just wikipedia this.

I’m always a little surprised that the pronunciation “missis” was considered vulgar at least into 18c.

Well it wasn’t until 1920 that Mrs. came to mean “one’s wife”
