If you have followed me awhile you know my love for fashion (particularly dresses) runs deep.
The fact that I haven’t been to a party in years does not matter – I’m still constantly building my wish lists and filling my closet.
The average woman’s dress size in the US is a size 14W – yet many top designers still won’t fashion to fit anything above a size 10 or 12. Some are so bold as to stop at a size 8.
If you’ve seen the Devil Wears Prada, you likely remember the repeated barbs given to Andy (Anne Hathaway) about her weight – “size 6 is the new 14.”
That may be how some people in the fashion industry still view it, but times are changing and customer demand is forcing that change.
The curvy figure is starting to be embraced by some of the larger low-end retailers – have you seen Target’s size 16 models in their new ads? (High five, Target!)
And if you’re broke like me, you learn to make “low-end” look amazing – but keep in mind YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
Some of these dresses are in the range of $20 and they are going to be made from cheap material.
The higher priced dresses I find are often either custom made or are simply higher quality.
Anyway, I went hunting for this season’s relatively cheap plus size party dresses (because that’s what’s being asked for) for all sizes and I have found some delightful options that I’m excited to share.
