Today's dresses are so modern and versatile that they can be worn for more than just one social function. My sister recently fell into this category as she needed a dress for her daughter's wedding, as well as a cruise she was planning for. So naturally - two dresses for the price of one! But there is a hitch, she needs a plus size. Well, we started browsing the Macy's website for some inspiration. Easy to find, the beautiful plus size dresses have come a long way. The lovely selection was so glamorous and stylish, in a range of sizes, prices, fabrics and amazing colors that we were in a world of our own.
Let me share some of the exciting styles from SL Fashions, London Times, Alex Evenings, Jessica Howard and R&M Richards for starters. Jacket dresses, tiered, long sleeved, pleated, cap sleeves, portrait collar and beaded in short and long lengths in feminine fabrics were abundant. The fashionable designs were all reasonably priced, and they even had suggested accessories available to complement any outfit from hadbags to shoes. We saw several on the site that appealed to us. One was a floor length jacket dress in black that was sleek and slimming from Alex Evenings and should I say stunning. The other was a short a-line dress with a portrait collar, from Jessica Howard in a striking sapphire shade that was very attracrive. Well, the next step is to venture out to the store and try on these different silhouettes.
The useful dresses are more than functional since they enhance a woman's appearance for a very special event. Comfortable and flattering, the plus size dresses, for mother of the bride or any social affair, offers elegance and freedom of movement in a graceful and charming way.
Deciding on just one dress wasn't easy, since many of them were just as glamorous off the hanagr on. At the end of the day, she purchased a beautiful mother of the bride dress, in a flattering style and color, that fit her perfectly. All's well that ends well!
