Prom Dresses for Plus-Size Body Types

Plus-sized girls actually have a lot of options when it comes to dressing their body type. “It’s all about what your favorite body part is and showcasing it. If you want to hide your stomach, stick with empire waist gown that has a good amount of flow. If you want to hide your arms, go with the embellished sleeves. The options are endless,” says Wolford

Rygorsky personally loves “the look of larger-sized abstract watercolor prints on plus-size gowns, and maybe a style that is form-fitting across the bust and then gently flows out from there.” And while it’s normal to be concerned about wearing a dress that’s too tight, don’t go too big either. Cox says that many plus-size women make the mistake of wearing too much fabric, and covering up too much. “Instead, pick a dress that has stretch, and hugs your curves. It should move with you,” she says.
