Picking The Right Formal Plus Dress For You

Women's Formal Plus Size Dresses for comfort and style!

Hey, Ladies! If you have ever heard the statement, “When you look good, you feel good” then you know there is a lot of truth to that. I know when I have a great looking dress and heels on, my attitude is different, and I feel like I can conquer the world! Well, almost. But sometimes finding the right formal gown can leave some plus size women frustrated. Needing to attend a formal event like a prom or planning your wedding might be the time when finding the right dress is most crucial. Keeping a few of these guidelines in mind while shopping for a dress can, at the very least, take some of the guess work out of knowing what would be the right style, fit, and level of comfort so that you can feel confident as you make your entrance for your special occasion day or night.

First of all ladies, be truthful about your size. If you are a size 22, then get the dress in your size. You will bring more attention to your size if you look stuffed into a dress. Wearing the right undergarments can also smooth out imperfections.

One style of formal plus dresses that works for every body is the A-line fit. An A-line style is a fit that will hug your curves at all the right places because it is narrow at the top and flares out at the sides and bottom which will hide problem areas like rounder hips and backsides and will even out the body by making it look longer. It is the right dress for every body. Another great style for plus size women would be to find formal dresses with an empire waist which can hide your tummy.

The colors and prints on a formal plus dress can also determine how a dress can flatter you. Stay away from material with a shine. This can make you look heavier. Darker colors can have a slimming effect on your figure so choose jewel tones like burgundy wine, topaz, emerald, navy blue, chocolate browns, and classic black. Adding the right shoes and accessories to any formal gown will be the finishing touch to make your special occasion even more memorable and give you the confidence of knowing that you can “conquer the world.” Well, almost.
