How to Find a Beautiful Plus Size Party Dress

When you’re looking for a plus size party dress for a prom, wedding, cocktail party or business event, it can be time-consuming and annoying to find the perfect item. Often, the catalog models or mannequins are small and geared towards a smaller size, so the clothing ends up not looking as great on a plus size woman.

About fifty percent of the American population needs plus size clothing, yet it’s amazing how hard it could be to find a decent selection until recently. Slowly and surely, designers have caught on to the trend with Liz Claiborne, Jones New York, and even Givenchy starting to offer plus size dresses and other clothing for women.

When you need a dress, be sure to measure yourself properly. Please don’t suck in your breath and try to be a smaller size. You’ll be more comfortable in your true size and, if the size number really bothers you, no one has to know but you!

One of the tricks to finding the perfect plus size dress is to get your true size. Squeezing into a smaller size often isn’t flattering and doesn’t do justice to you or the dress. When you wear the proper size, a dress will hug your curves in all the right places and help you turn heads at the next wedding reception or party you attend. A second handy way to find the perfect dress is to order several dresses online, try them all on and then return those you don’t want. Before you do this, check the return policy of the store where you purchase the dress. Some make it easier than others to return. If you do this, the process offers convenient in-home shopping that can’t be beat in terms of saving you the hours you’d otherwise spend in the mall.

Be sure to take advantage of online shopping and find a dress style and size that will help you look and feel wonderful.
