Being a curvier woman, I often have difficulty finding the right dress for my body type. But with retailers being more open to plus sizes, it's getting a little easier. I've also found inspiration from other fashion bloggers who have been setting the trend on what looks right for our silhouettes. Girl With Curves has been a constant source of ideas and I highly recommend checking out her blog. She is fabulous and knows what she's talking about. Nicolette Mason is another must read! She actually writes and has her own column in Marie Claire magazine. Must say she's someone I really look up to and can only dream of achieving what she has. Bow down.
But back to finding a dress for my body type, like I said previously there has been a growing trend in finding the right resource for a curvier body. I have a few favorite retailers that accomodate to my needs, and these are just some of the dresses I would wear.
1. Fair Thee Swell Dress | 2. Floating on Heirloom Dress | 3. Two if by Tea Dress | 4. Midi Dress with Pleat Skirt | 5. Skater Dress with Lace Collar | 6. Maxi Dress | 7. Tea Dress | 8. Scallop Hem Dress | 9. Tulisa Sequin Dress
I think I might need to go shopping! Each one of these retailers have fairly reasonable prices and make such flattering decisions for curvier women. I especially am fond of SimplyBe because they are an online retailer that aims specifically for plus size fashion. I only recently found out about them, but I am very happy I did! Do any of you have any favorite plus-size retailers? Let me know!
