How to Buy a Plus Size Dress

It needs to complement your body figure

Some of the most trendy plus size sun dress styles that never go out of style and are at a high rise during the warmer months are: Kimono with three-quarter sleeves, tea dress, maxi dresses and the classy shirt dress.

However, your best dress styles are the ones that flatter your body shape, camouflage problem areas you're self-conscious - giving room for the body assets you're proud of! Knowing your body figure helps you select the right styles that complement it. For example, if you're curvier around your hips compared to your bust and shoulder-area, then you need to wear a dress that add fullness on top to distract the eye from your hips.

Focus on breathable fabrics

To ensure that your dresses are comfortable, look for 100% cotton, or the highest cotton blend possible. Cotton is a natural fabric (breathable) which makes a garment light and airy.

Synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon and rayon lower the quality and the lifetime of a garment - however, they have an array of strengths which downplay their weaknesses (low absorption ability, less breathable) that make them ideal and not least, super-affordable.

Have fun with colors and prints

Don't be afraid to buy a frock with bright colors or eye catching prints - they add a pop of interest and can give your skin a healthy glow, which is excellent for adding color to your skin tone. Just make sure to select your best colors, and prints and details that are scaled to your body scale.
