Plus Size Summer Fashion
Despite the fact I'm looking out my window at raining pouring down Summer is hopefully just around the corner. When the temperature starts to rise you want flattering clothes to keep you cool. The maxi dress is a perfect staple for your summer wardrobe and ultra flattering for plus size figures. Continually in fashion since the 1970s the maxi dress can be dressed up or down so is perfect for day as well as evening wear and remember if you are self conscious about your upper arms like a lot of us ( me included ) a lacy shrug can hide a multitude of sins.
I've chosen designs from one of my favourite online plus size fashion boutique Curvety because they produce great clothes up to a UK size 34/36 which is a US 32/34 and also ship internationally.
Animal Print Plus Size Maxi Dress
Comfortable cling free jersey maxi dress with a bang on trend bold animal print, contrasting bodice and curve defining Empire waistband. The surplice bodice is designed to accommodate medium to larger busts and has 2 inch wide bra friendly straps. Just add strappy wedge heels and gold accessories to complete the look.
Zebra Print Plus Size Maxi Dress
Wow! Cling free, wrinkle free fully lined jersey maxi dress in stunning vertically positioned zebra print to flatter fuller figures. The bra friendly bodice is fully adjustable allowing you to alter the V shape neckline according to your preference and even has the added assurance of elastane to ensure you avoid the dreaded gape problem. This bold animal print maxi will ensure heads turn when ever you wear it.
Jersey Truffle Maxi Dress
I just love this dress! This truffle jersey maxi dress with 3/4 length sleeves isn't just a summer dress it's an any time you fancy dress and if you buy it I can see it becoming one of your wardrobe basics to build on. Smart enough for office or day wear yet classic enough to take you through to the evening this is a classic garment with real class. Comes with a self colour belt / scarf but would look fantastic with an empire waist belt to emphasis your curves.
Black Plus Size Maxi Dress
Simple yet understated this classic black maxi dress emphasises the bust with it's sweetheart neckline without exposing cleavage. Mid length sleeves mask the upper arm area and the ruched waistline with delicate gathering drape perfectly to produces a curve skimming silhouette any woman would be proud of.
Strapless Plus Size Maxi Dress
This glamorous strapless Maxi dress is available in Fuschia or Jade and is currently half price so a real bargain too. A taffeta bodice with detachable straps and a crystal pleated full length lined A-line skirt in an abstract floral print make this an elegant choice what ever the occasion.
Valencia Maxi dress
This maxi dress will ensure you create a dramatic entrance every time you wear it. A bright vibrant blue surplice bodice with contrasting patterned chiffon skirt this dress is ultra feminine and a summer must have. Currently only available to pre order the second week of July make sure you don't miss out on this crowd pleaser.
