From 3D butterfly appliques to hand-crafted floral corsages, designers this season are leveling up their style quotient with design elements that stand out. (Literally!) Instead of a boring flat fabric, try these plus size evening dresses with raised patterns. Appliques are a great idea for plus size women as any love handles or bumps you would like hidden are easily covered with these 3D designs. Feel free to eat and move around comfortably with 3D designs, without the pressure to suck in that tummy! 

 

2. Loud Prints

Designers have made sure that plus size women will not stay in the back room of the party anymore with bright and loud prints this season. From large floral prints to bright animal styles, try printed plus size wedding guest dresses this season rather than a run-of-the-mill single colour design. Choosing large prints is a wise choice for plus size women as they visually make the wearer look smaller. Smaller prints are not favoured by designers this season, rightly so, because smaller prints make the wearer look larger. Thus, embrace loud and large prints this formal season. 

 

3. Draping

Designers these season have employed the clever use of draping. Plus size women can now confidently wear tight bodycon dresses without worrying about their belly showing with clever draping of fabric at the difficult areas of the tummy and waist. A pictorial example of such ingenious draping design is shown below:

As you can see, draping helps hide the parts you want hidden in an elegant and beautiful manner. Try draped dresses the next time you attend a formal event!

 

4. Sheer and Sexy

Who said plus size women can't be sexy? With the right sheer fabric and under fabric, curvy women can wear comfortable yet sultry designs too. A top trend of 2024 is sheer mesh fabric. Stretchy yet sturdy, mesh fabric helps plus size women shown skin while making sure that the lumps they want hidden are securely smooth over. Chiffon is another top sheer fabric used in the plus size dresses of this season. Non-stretchy and see through, chiffon is a classic fabric choice for plus size women. It is flattering for plus size bodies since without stretch, body bulges are effectively hidden.

 

5. Pleats

Pleats are the epitome of feminine and classy style. Plus size women were offered boring and frumpy options that did not reflect their feminism. Fast forward to 2024, designers are not settling for designs from yesterday. Pleats are making a huge splash this plus size formal dress season. When employed strategically, pleats elongate the frame and slims the body down. A beautiful, flattering and elegant touch, pleats are the best friend for plus size bodies.

 

6. Show some Skin
