Finding the right holiday party dress to flatter your figure is easy when you know what to look for. Here are some plus size holiday party dresses for curvy women designed to shape and slim.
Shift Dresses are Plus Size Gal’s Friend
Of all the types of dresses out there for plus size gals, a shift dress is an easy and flattering style to wear. A shift dress is similar to a sheath dress but there is a little more width at the waist which is perfect if you are thicker through the middle.
This gorgeous embroidered lace shift is a standout for Christmas and holiday parties. The bell sleeves are very feminine (like pretty Christmas bells) and the lace is so appropriate this time of year. I love this dress which also comes in regular as well as plus size.
Look for Dresses with Draping and Stretch
When you are on the lookout for plus size holiday party dresses be sure to check out the ones that move with your body. Dress with draping and stretch are more comfortable an look more fluid on rounder bodies.
This stunning blue velvet Christmas party dress is just what I am referring to. The faux wrap style does a few wonderful things. First, it helps create a more defined waist, the soft ruching in front camouflages the tummy, and the built-in stretch allows this dress to hug all your curves giving you a more hourglass shape. Wear it with some glam shiny accessories and you will look elegant and party ready!
Solid Colors Elongate the Body
If you want to look longer and lean a solid color, especially a medium to dark solid color will do the trick. The reason is one color creates a long continuous line that pulls the eye up and down as opposed to a busy print that breaks up the body into different smaller parts.
This glamorous purple sparkly dress is an excellent choice if you want to stand out this X-mas and it is a nice change from red or black, while still being very festive. This would also make a great dress for New Year’s Eve – wouldn’t it? Imagine watching the ball drop at midnight in this stunning number!
Strategically Placed Lines are Slimming
It’s interesting how lines can create optical illusions and such is the case with this dazzling navy and silver sequinned shift dress. Lines of sparkle that come together at certain points to create arrows pull the eye up and into the middle of the body making you look thinner and taller. Not only that, the geometric pattern is so modern and youthful.
It’ refreshing to see something new and exciting like this. It’s the sparkly version of that little black dress that would look so good at many special functions throughout the year.
