How to Choose the Perfect Plus Size Evening Gowns

One day you’ll be invited to a black-tie event and feel like you have nothing to wear. As a plus-size woman, this always seems to be the case, doesn’t it? We feel like we don’t have many fashion options. I’m here to tell you that’s not true. We have a pretty good selection of plus-size evening gowns out there! You just know what you have and what suits you!
Shopping for evening wear is easier with the following tips.
  • The A Line
If you need to emphasize your waist, an A Line gown is your best choice. While the gown is fitted around the waist, it flares out waist downwards. This concentrates the attention on your waist, creating the illusion of your waist
  • The Princess Cut
The Princess cut dress is a dramatized version of the A-line. The dress is created using vertical panels that run from the neckline down to the waist or sometimes the hem line. These panels work well by elongating your silhouette and ultimately slimming it because the focus is shifted to the lines created by the seams.
  • The Empire Cut
The Empire Cut dress has a high waistline that sits just below the bust. This is great for ladies with both big and small busts. For a smaller bust, it attracts attention to the neckline and if you add further embellishments like beadwork or full sleeves, it will work wonders. For a larger bust, it helps to conceal and the square neckline will work perfectly.
  • The Mermaid Cut
The Mermaid Cut dress is very well fitted from the chest to the knee and then flares out, sort of like a mermaid’s tail. This is the perfect cut for you if you love to show off your curves. Carry off the mermaid cut with a confident posture and you’re all set.
  • The Sheath or the Column Cut
This silhouette pretty much flows from the neckline to the hemline in a straight column, hence the name. This is perfect for you if you’re shorter as the silhouette has an elongating effect.

  • If you don’t want to show your arms, use a wrap or a bolero jacket that goes with your dress.
  • Try it on and see how it looks on you. Don’t just buy something because it looks good on the rack.
  • Learn about fabrics because each fabric can create a different look and can also end up making a dress fit you differently.
  • If you don’t like what’s on the racks, hire a seamstress and get a dress tailored to perfection.

So there you go, hopefully these tips will make it easier for you to choose formal evening wear that’s right for you.
