14 Party Perfect Plus Size Christmas Dresses With Sleeves
It’s that time of the year again, which I have to say I truly love! The holidays are coming up and without a doubt you’ve already started thinking of Christmas gift ideas for family and friends, but also about what to wear to any holiday parties that might be happening in the coming weeks.
The major dilemma I face when deciding what to wear to a Christmas party is this: What can I wear that is stylish and sexy, but still can keep me warm?! Let’s face it, it’s cold outside and not everyone loves to suffer the cold in the name of fashion!
So what is the compromise? Well, actually there is no compromise because as I’m about to show you today, you can get your hands on a variety of different stylish and flattering plus size party dresses… with sleeves! So you can keep (relatively) warm, and yet still be fashionable at any Christmas party you’re attending this year.
To help you out in deciding what to wear I’ve selected 14 party perfect plus size Christmas dresses, all with sleeves! Some come in 3/4 length sleeves, and others have long sleeves. There’s a variety of lengths, colors and prints to choose from! So go on an get inspired by my selection below… and let me know which dress if your favorite.
1. Loren Dress by IGIGI
A gorgeous dress from Yuliya Raquel by IGIGI, which comes in a lovely shade of red making it a perfect Christmas party dress! This dress features a V-neck line and can be be worn both on or off the shoulder; so depending on the occasion you can decide the degree if sexiness you want to give this dress. I suggest keeping accessories to a minimum here if you choose to wear the detachable hand-beaded belt which comes with this dress. If however you prefer not to wear the belt, then feel free to spice up the dress with some bold accessories and matching clutch bag. This dress is selling fast, so if you like it, don’t linger!
2. Cosmo Cocktail Dress by Kiyonna
Kiyonna are very well known for their gorgeous lace dresses, and this season they have added a new twist, the Cosmo Cocktail dress. This new design features a high and wide neckline, sheer sleeves and a sweetheart neckline lining. It is available in two shades, Black Noir which is black lace and black lining, or Golden Evening which is gold toned lace and black lining. Simply stunning!
3. Solid Batwing Dress by Avenue
Another excellent option for a plus size Christmas party dress! This chic dress from Avenue features wide, bat-wing style long sleeves and it is knee-length. Again completing your outfit will be easy with this striking dress – add some black high heels shoes, a bold necklace and matching bag.
4. Hayworth Dress by IGIGI
This 40s inspired dress is another gorgeous piece IGIGI have added to their collection this season. I love this one, and cannot decide whether I prefer the Amethyst or Black version… tough decision indeed! The Hayworth dress features a hand-beaded sequin embellishment at the side and a V-neck line. Super sexy.
5. Andorra Dress by Eliza Parker
The perfect dress for the full figured woman who loves color and print. The Andorra Dress features a knee length print skirt, handy (and hidden!) side pockets, and a one color top. Gorgeous dress which can be teamed up with a pair of blue or nude heels for a party perfect look.
6. Gretta Lace Dress by IGIGI
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I first saw it on the IGIGI website! The black sheer lace makes sure this dress is a very feminine, and yet it is also bold thanks to the shimmering metallic gold lining. It can be worn both on or off the shoulder… or you can actually just drop one shoulder slightly to give your look an edge. Add some heels, a simple clutch back, some gold earrings and your Christmas party outfit is set! (This one is also selling pretty fast, so don’t think about it too much if you have your eye on this dress.)
7. Vivienne Cinch Dress by Kiyonna
This classic Kiyonna piece is a Christmas party perfect choice! It’s a knee length dress which comes with 3/4 length sleeves, an ultra flattering faux wrap style with fun ruffle detail. It is available in four different colors: cobalt blue, black, magenta and red. Of course I recommend the red color for a Holiday party; pair it up with dainty earrings, black heels and also a black clutch bag and you are set to party!
8. Black Lace Top Midi Dress by Yours Clothing
If you like lace, but aren’t ready to wear an all over lace dress, then you will love the Black Lace Top Midi Dress. The top part of this dress features lace and sequins, whereas the bottom part then is a black ankle length skirt. It comes in a V-neckline and comfortable 3/4 length sleeves.
9. Garbo Gown by IGIGI
If the Christmas party you are invited is more of a formal, black tie event, then the stunning Garbo Dress from IGIGI is surely a dress you need to look at. It features beaded embellishment on the side and the plunging neckline and high slit in the floor length skirt, give this dress a nice dose of sex appeal! Team this gown up with chic accessories, a black clutch back and of course some heels, and you will have a look that will turn heads.
10. Printed Kimono Dress by Avenue
This kimono style dress is simply gorgeous! Perfect for those curvy ladies who love to wear prints, and something extra striking. As the name implies, this dress of course features kimono style sleeves, and the print fabric includes fun sequin detail. This has to be one of my favorites – it makes an all round perfect party dress!
11. Animal Print Dress by Yours Clothing
Are you more on the wild side? Then jump in on the hot animal print trend with this sizzling number from Yours Clothing. This dress is long-sleeved and for a great party look should be worn with black leggings or opaque tights, high-heeled shoes and some simple gold toned accessories.

I love this article and the selection. You’re so right, sleeves matter. there’s only so many times you can wear a shrug. Ulla Popken, ullapopken.com, has some great dresses for holidays too, some with more coverage for the woman who’s looking for that!
