Thursday, December 4th, 2008 | plus size clothing for the holidays, plus size dress with 6 Comments

The holiday season is now in full swing, so I wanted to take a moment and have a closer look at the holiday plus size dresses made available to us this year by our favorite curve loving stores.

This top 10 list includes some stunning dresses made for the full figured woman to wear during the Christmas holiday season. Let me not babble too much, but leave you to enjoy the stylish dresses in our list below.

1. Magdalena Asymmetrical Jeweled Gown in Verdant Green by IGIGI
This gorgeous piece from IGIGI is in my opinion this year’s all round winner. It’s a unique and yet timeless piece which combines a stunning asymmetrical design with ageless, royal jewels. The dress feature an extremely sexy cut, as the asymmetrical design exposes one shoulder. The ruched bodice creates a slimmer waistline, whilst the exclusive hand beaded jeweled inset adds a touch of royal glamor. Perfect for a gala evening during New Year’s Eve. Available in sizes 12 to 32.

2. Starlet Halter Dress from Avenue
This beautiful red mesh halter dress is a very sexy and yet elegant choice. It comes with an adjustable tie halter, to ensure a perfect fit. The empire waist with pleated satin cumberbund is perfect for the plus sized figure, as it hugs the tummy. I am so sure wearing this dress would be so much fun! Why? I can just imagine myself wearing it at a party, dancing the night away, with the gorgeous flowing skirt following my every move. It has quite a vintage feel to it as well I think! Anyway, this is definitely one of my favorites. Colorful, and striking. Comes in sizes 14 to 24.

Black Chiffon Tiered Tube Dress

3. Black Chiffon Tiered Tube Dress from Torrid
Create an effortless elegant look with this chiffon dress, which features three ruffled tiers and a gathered satin elastic empire waist. The elastic bust adds comfort, whilst ensuring the chest is well supported. What a gorgeous piece, perfect for a holiday party. Match it up with some classic pearl accessories and black pumps to create a very elegant look. Otherwise you can play this dress up with pairing it up with striking colored pumps, and matching accessories. Think pink or red, or blue! Available in sizes 0 to 4 (10/12 to 26/28).

4. Cecille Asymmetrical Lace Dress in Black/Gold from IGIGI
Another one of my favorites this year. If you are a chic curvy fashionista, this one must be your choice. IGIGI always manage to create some exclusive designer dresses, and this lace dress is nothing short of impression. It features an elaborate floral lace, which is accentuated with metallic flakes of gold. This intricately designed dress with an elegant, asymmetrical neckline has definitely been created for the sophisticated woman radiating that extra edge of modern appeal. Available in sizes 12 to 32.

Women's Plus: Women's Plus Flutter-Sleeve Dresses - Monaco Plum

5. Women’s Plus Flutter-Sleeve Dresses in Monaco Plum from Old Navy
One of the season’s best party dresses is this sumptuously silky dress, featuring fabulously feminine flutter sleeves and a tie-sash that makes it a cinch for glamorous gatherings. The gorgeous Monaco Plum color is a refreshing change from the usual holiday colors we see. This dress is available in sizes 1X to 4X.

Flaunt Cocktail Dress

6. Flaunt Cocktail Dress from Kiyonna
This curve hugging dress makes a lasting impression from both front and back views! Make an exit that will leave them talking, with the bra-friendly plunging scoop open back designed to show off all of your best assets. Again this dress featured ruching, which is so beneficial for plus size women, as it is a detail which helps create more of a waistline. Available in sizes 0X to 5X (10/12 to 30/32).

7. Tile Accent Dress from Avenue
The shiny tile details are what make this chic knit dress, glamorous. It comed in comfy 3/4 length sleeves and a scoop neckline. The stylish tile accents are placed on the neckline, hem, and sleeves. Available in sizes 14 to 32, I think this is another true winner, a dress which can easily take you from the holiday party to a romantic night out any other time of the wear. So if you’re looking for convenience and re-usability, this is it.

Teal Twist Bust Banded Bottom Dress

8. Teal Twist Bust Banded Bottom Dress from Torrid
This gorgeous striking dress is a online exclusive! So you are sure to be unique, and stand out of the crowd when wearing this silky knit dress. It features a twist detail bust, gathered shoulder straps and a banded hem. The empire waist with back pleat detail is perfect for hiding those imperfect areas, and creating a flattering silhouette. I think this dress is perfect for the young plus size ladies, looking for that perfect dress to celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends. Available in sizes 0 to 4 (10/12 to 26/28).

Adorable New Dresses Just in at Torrid

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008 | plus size dress, plus size fashion with No Comments »

Okay, I’m going to risk sounding like a broken record here and say… I love when the seasons change! Autumn isn’t even here yet, and the new styles coming in at all the stores are making me ache for cooler weather - so I can wear some of autumn’s cutest new trends. Case in point? Torrid’s just-arrived Black and Purple Plaid Chiffon Secretary Dress with the flattering high-waisted skirt and oh-so-sexy silhouette.  Must… have… it…

Plus, Torrid in now accepting Paypal for payment! And while for some the major appeal is that you can feel your purchases are super secure, for others (like me!) it’s all in the secrecy. Because if you have a little Paypal money sitting around from selling all your old “Heart” tapes on eBay, you can spend as much of it as you like on super cute clothes, and no one who shares your bank account need be the wiser…

Just practice saying it with me: “What? This old thing?”

Think You Can’t Wear a Bubble Dress? Think Again!

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008 | plus size dress with 1 Comment

Bubble dresses. You know the ones. They look super cute on those girls with the approximate size and shape of a stick, and terrible on anybody with a pair of, you know… hips. You like to follow trends, but… why would you torture yourself by putting on a dress with a hemline that only puffs everything out and clings in all the wrong places?

I just visited IGIGI, and lo and behold… they actually make bubble dresses that flatter women with a curvier shape!  Just in at the website is a selection of very trendy (by still very flattering) bubble-hemmed dresses. My favorite? The jewel-toned green jade bubble dress. So pretty. So feminine. So in my shopping cart.

Finally! Just because I’m not Miss Twiggy doesn’t mean I can’t follow this trend.
