All Dress April 2018 – Week Three

All Dress April

All Dress April

This month is moving along so fast, I can’t believe it is almost over. Week three of All Dress April is already completed, and we have just a week and a half left.

If you missed previous weeks, don’t forget to check out week one and week two before you leave.

This week is unfortunately a little light on the outfits, as you may already know I missed a couple of days due to life circumstances. And I am unfortunately out of any backup photos.

Day 15

Plus size cold shoulder maxi dress from Torrid on day 15 of All Dress April

This is the Cold Shoulder Jersey Maxi Dress from Torrid. I am wearing it in gray, which I got last year. They no longer have this color, but I have linked to it in the black color they have this year. I also saw it in olive green earlier this, and was a little sad that I missed out. I keep hoping that Torrid will bring that one back.

My jewelry is from Earth Bound Trading Company, and the shoes are from Skechers.

Day 16

 

I missed this day due to illness

Day 17

vintage style lace dress from Kiyonna for day 17 of All Dress April

For day 17 I had on this Luna Lace Dress from Kiyonna. I don’t know why, maybe its the simple elegance of this dress, but I always feel the need to put my hair in some sort of updo when I wear it.

I have it paired with some basic black pumps that I have had forever. An I also had on a pair of Betsey Johnson Cat Ear Sunglasses.

Day 18

Off the shoulder plus size maxi dress from ASOS Curve

Day 18 had me wearing a dress from ASOS Curve, and I think this is my favorite out of the newer dresses that I have purchased. This is the ASOS DESIGN Curve Bardot midi dress in floral print. They call it a midi, but to me it is a little long to consider a midi, I think of it as a maxi. I ordered this dress at the beginning of April, and at that time they had this dress in every size. However, as I am writing this, they seem to only have a couple of sizes left.

I have it paired with some green peep toe wedge heels that I got on Zulily several years ago.

Day 19

Plus size wiggle dress from Unique Vintage for day 18 of All Dress April

The dress I wore on day 19 seems to be the overwhelming social media favorite. This is the Unique Vintage 1960s Style Yellow Floral Long Sleeve Mod Wiggle Dress.  I picked this up on one of Unique Vintage’s $25 sales, and the plus sizes are now sold out. But it does look like they have it in some misses sizes. But if you just like this style, then Unique Vintage has lots of patters in their Mod Wiggle Dress.

I have it paired with a pair of rounded toe heels from Steve Madden. I have actually had these heels almost 20 years. I keep hoping they will come back because they are amazingly comfortable.

Day 20Lace Mod Dress from Simply Be for day 20 of All Dress April

On day 20 I wore this Simply Be Lace Dress With Tipping. If you are following along on any of my social media, then you know this was not my favorite dress on me. I love the dress itself, but think it would look better on a different body type. I want to be clear though, this isn’t me saying there is anything wrong with the dress or my body. Don’t be surprised if there ends up being a blog post on this topic soon.

I have it paired with a pair of Soft Style by Hush Puppies Women’s Gianna Dress Pump. You can’t really see them well, but they are a vintage looking pair of Oxford heels.

Day 21

On day 21 I missed again. I was off gallivanting around a college campus with my niece all day on her first college tour. Too much fast paced walking and climbing stairs for me to comfortably wear a dress. I had plans on wearing one when I got home, but the day went on for a longer than expected and I went to bed immediately.

 

That wraps up week three. Tell me in the comments what your favorite dress from this week was.

7 Places To Buy Plus Size Wedding Dresses under $500

Plus Size Wedding Dresses Under $500

Plus Size Wedding Dresses Under $500

As many of you may know, before I started my blog I was writing for a plus size bridal magazine called Pretty Pear Bride. And if you are a plus size bride, I highly recommend you take the time to check it out, it can be a valuable resource.

Since we are about to be amid what we all know as wedding season, I thought now might be a good time to reconnect with my past and cover the topic of affordable wedding dresses. Wedding dresses can get pricey, but not all of us want or can put a lot of money towards a dress we will only wear once. I know what a struggle it can be to find your dream dress on a tight budget.

That is why I wanted to show you all some places you can find wedding dresses under $500 as well as share some of my favorites from each place. And don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those things where I list seven different places where you can find one dress barely under $500. There will actually be more than one place you can actually find a dress under $100.

1. Kiyonna
Plus size Amour Lace Wedding Gown from Kiyonna

Plus size Spotlight Cinch Dress by Kiyonna

You aren’t going to find the traditional princess wedding dress at Kiyonna, but you will find a selection of dresses in a variety of more relaxed styles. The offerings are perfect for anything from a vintage style wedding to a super chill beach wedding. Kiyonna Dresses are available in sizes 0X to 5X. And their prices range from $98 to $288.

 

2. SWAK (a.k.a. Sealed With A Kiss Designs)
Plus Size Kara Lace Dress by Sealed With A Kiss Designs

Plus size Eternity Maxi Convertible Dress from SWAK

SWAK doesn’t exactly have a wedding dress section. But if you are looking for a white dress with beachy, boho vibes, then you just might find your dress here. They have a handful of their designs available in white all under $100. Their dresses come in sizes 1X to 6X or 14 to 36.

 

3. David’s Bridal

If you are looking for a more traditional bridal gowns, then David’s Bridal is a good place to start looking. Plus it is one of the few places you can actually go try the gowns on in person and they actually have samples in plus sizes. They do have dresses that go over $500, so keep that in mind when looking. But original prices start at $249, and they often have sales that mark dresses down to $99. I have even seen dresses over a $1000 marked down under the $500 mark on some of their sales. Their plus size range comes in sizes 14W to 30W.

 

4. Amazon

High Neck Princess Lace Tulle Wedding Dress available in plus sizes on Amazon

Surprise, surprise, Amazon made the list. They by far have the largest variety of style and brands available under $500. Of course like anything else, when it comes to plus sizes on Amazon you may worry that they won’t be true to size. I have seen quite a few videos of people trying on Amazon wedding dresses, and for the most part they surprisingly are okay for their prices, even the ones under $100. My advice would be, if you are going to buy from Amazon 1. make sure you check the sellers size chart, not the amazon one. Also if the seller doesn’t have a size chart, then don’t order from them. And 2. Order early, so if something needs to be returned or altered you have plenty of time. As for prices, there seem to be wedding dresses starting at $12 and the keep going well above the $500 mark. Sizes are all over the place depending on the brand, but most like the ones I have pictured go up to about a size 28W. Keep in mind that these, like most bridal run one to two sizes small. This may not be the case with some of the other more dedicated to plus size brands.

 

5. Sydney’s Closet

If you aren’t familiar with Sydney’s Closet then I am simultaneously both surprised and not surprised. I am surprised because they have been around for a long time offering plus size women beautiful and affordable formal wear. I am not surprised because they don’t get talked about a lot that I see, and they are kind of in a very niche market. They offer all sorts of formal wear, and they always have a selection of plus size wedding dresses. At the moment all of the dresses they have, with the exception of one, is under $500. Dresses are available in sizes 14 to 4, but I believe their bridal line stops at size 34 (don’t quote me on that.).

 

6. Society +
Short Society+ Premium Blush Tutu for plus sizes

Premium Tutu - Long Champagne in plus sizes by Society Plus

You may not know this, but Society Plus has a selection of premium tutus for weddings that are pre-order only. I know this isn’t exactly a wedding dress, but I thought these would be a good option for some. It could work, not only for those who just like the look, but also anyone who has a hard time getting the right fit in a dress. Prices range from $90 to $120 and they are available in 14/16 to 30/32.

 

7. ASOS Curve
ASOS CURVE BRIDAL Tulle Maxi Prom Dress

ASOS CURVE BRIDAL Tulle Maxi Prom Dress

ASOS EDITION CURVE BRIDAL Lace Long Sleeve Crop Top Maxi Dress

ASOS EDITION CURVE BRIDAL Lace Long Sleeve Crop Top Maxi Dress

 

 

Not a large collection available at ASOS, but definitely some designs I haven’t seen anywhere else for plus sizes. Perhaps if you are a bride that is looking for something more unique, ASOS may be the place to check. Their collection of dresses are all under $300. Sizes vary a bit depending on the dress, but most are available in 12 to 26.

 

This isn’t really part of the list because they aren’t under $500, but I wanted to give an honorable mention to the Yuliya Raquel website. Not only does she have some pre-made wedding dress designs, but she also has these two popular designs from her days at IGIGI that you can now customize. And those customized dresses will only run $700 each. The vintage lace dress was my own wedding dress, and I resold mine after the wedding. To this day, 5 years later, I am still getting women emailing me asking if I still have it, because its their dream dress. So if it was your dream dress as well, know you can still get it.

Make sure to let everyone know in the comments if you are a plus size bride, and tell us where you got your dress at.

10 Plus Size Brands You Might Be Surprised To Find On Amazon

plus size on Amazon

plus size on Amazon

If you ever search the plus size clothing section at Amazon you know it can be a real crap shoot sometimes. A large percentage of the brands are companies no one has ever heard of before or they are in China and using Asian sizing. Can we give a moment of serious side eye to those Asian size charts please? And speaking of size charts, a lot of brands don’t even bother to give us one even though they are no where close to the general size chart posted by Amazon themselves.

It’s seriously enough to give a girl shopping anxiety. But sometimes Amazon seems like the easiest way to shop rather than navigating twenty different websites trying to find that perfect dress or sweater. But long gone are the days of Amazon only being those unheard of brands in plus size clothing. I wanted to share with you ten plus size brands you might be surprised to find on Amazon.

I wanted to make this as helpful and easy as possible. So if you click on the brand name it should take you to the complete listings available from that brand, and I have made all the pictures clickable to take you to those product pages. I tried to pick out a couple of key pieces from each of the companies that I really like, some of which I already own.

1. Torrid

Available in sizes 00 to 6, just like they are in the store and their website. If you are not familiar with Torrid I would be really surprised. They have been around for over twenty years now and have been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years. I doubt you will get many of the sale prices on Amazon, but since most of their sales rely on you buying multiple items, if you are only going for one item buying on Amazon may be a good choice for you. It also seems like a good portion of the items have free Prime Shipping.

Sarcastic Never Scoop Tee $28.90

Cropped Denim Anorak Jacket $58.50

2. Hell Bunny

Their plus sizes are available in sizes 2XL to 4XL just as they are anywhere else that carries them. A word of warning though, these are not typically sized. A 4XL is meant to fit a size 18. I personally can only wear Hell Bunny if it’s a stretchy fabric and a style with open hips. But this is a great option for those ladies in sizes 14 to 18. If you are unfamiliar with Hell Bunny, they encompasses a wide variety of styles from 40s, 50s, retro and rockabilly to gothic, rock and punk styles. The reason to shop this brand on Amazon comes down to they have items that seem to be no longer available anywhere else, as well as some items are selling cheaper on Amazon.

Hell Bunny Plus Size Zombie Pin Up Dress

Hell Bunny Plus Size Black Gothic Zombie Pin Up 50’s Ice Scream Dress $59.99

Hell Bunny plus size Lady Moria Tea Dress

Hell Bunny Plus Size 40’s Vintage Style Office Lady Moira Tea Dress $79.00

3. Igigi

Available in sizes 14 to 28. Igigi fits true to size and was one of the first designer level brands made exclusively for plus size women. They have been mostly known for their dresses, but also carry a range of work wear separates. They have lost some traction in the fashion world since the founder and original designer of the brand, Yuliya Raquel, left a few years ago. However some of the original designs are still there and its well worth looking at. Why shop Amazon for this brand? Well it seems to be the only place you can buy it at the moment, at least as I write this. The Igigi website is down and says they are undergoing a major make-over getting ready for a relaunch. Hmmm…. And trust me, the prices listed below are not the average Igigi prices, get them while you can. Plus free shipping for Prime members.

Igigi Fredrica Lace Dress in Wine

IGIGI Women’s Plus Size Frederica Lace Dress in Wine $68.49

Igigi Plus Size Jacket in Camel

IGIGI Women’s Plus Size Notch Collar Jacket in Camel $88.99

 

4. City Chic

Available in sizes XS to XX Large. Those are plus sizes though and are equivalent to sizes 14 to 24. If you have been following me for any time at all you know that City Chic ranks high as one of my favorite plus size brands both for style and customer service. They are an Australian brand that has only recently started opening stores in the US. The only real advantage I see in buying them on Amazon is convenience. Maybe you are already shopping Amazon and you don’t want to take the time to switch sites.

City Chi plus size fit and flare dress

High Quality Plus Size Mono Sheer Panel Fit & Flare Dress $84.15

City Chic Off Shoulder Plus Size Dress

High Quality Plus Size Shadow Stripe Dress $89.00

5. BB Dakota

Their plus size selection is available in sizes 1X to 3X. Sizes run slightly smaller than typical plus size, but not enough to consider them junior plus. While this company does have their own website you can not buy directly from them on their website. You can find them places like ModCloth. So why shop this brand on Amazon? Well if one of those coveted items on ModCloth passed you by, you may just find it here and at a better price. Plus free prime shipping on all their items, no minimum purchase.

BB Dakota Plus Size Midi Dress

BB Dakota Women’s Plus-Size Dorit Rose Revival Printed Crepon Midi Dress $33.13 – $39.84

BB Dakota Plus Size striped ponte midi dress

BB Dakota Women’s Plus Size Jamal Striped Ponte Midi Dress $72.59 – $98.00

6. Avenue

Available in sizes 14/16 to 30/32. This brand runs true to size to slightly large depending on the item. From what I can tell you can get just about all the same things both on Amazon and the company’s website. Amazon does seem to be reflecting Avenue’s sale prices. And while they are not eligible for free prime shipping all items are marked free shipping for eligible orders. So this again may be one to chalk up to convenience.

Avenue Plus Size Chiffon Skirt

Avenue Women’s Scalloped Chiffon Skirt $28.88

Avenue Ruched Plus Size Sweater

Avenue Women’s Windowpane Ruched Pullover $24.00

7. Kiyonna

Available in sizes 0X to 5X. This brand runs true to size in most items, but some run a bit small. Kiyonna, like Igigi, is one of the first designer level clothing brands made exclusively for plus size women. Prices seem reflective of what is available on the Kiyonna website. So why buy on Amazon? No minimum purchase to get free prime shipping. On Kiyonna’s website you must spend $150.00 to get free shipping.

Kiyonna lus Size Daydream Top

Kiyonna Women’s Plus Size Destination Daydream Top $64.00

Kiyonna Charlize Maxi Dress

8. Modamix

Available in sizes 0X to 3X or 14 to 24 depending on how the item is labeled. This brands seems to run true to size from my experience. Modamix relatively young company sold at places like Macy’s, Nordstrom, and  Lord & Taylor as well as couple of subscription service companies. They specialize in both classic pieces with youthful prints and unique stylish pieces. So why buy this brand on Amazon? In addition to free Prime shipping, the price point seems a little better through Amazon. Also Amazon seems to be the only truly accessible to everyone way to get this brand. Every other way requires either membership to a subscription service or living in or near a large enough city to have one of those stores.

9. SWAK or Sealed With A Kiss Designs

Available in sizes 1X to 6X. Most items fit true to size, though their size chart can be a bit confusing at times. Sometimes when they say bust measurement they mean under bust. So if a measurement seems really small or really large to you, that may be why. Most if not all of SWAK’s items are super stretchy and comfortable. While they do try to keep things trendy, there is definitely a  more casual feel to a lot of their items. Why purchase on Amazon? Once again there is that added incentive of free prime shipping and just a matter of convenience.

10. Yours Clothing

Available in sizes 14 to 34 on Amazon, 16 to 36 on the companies website. They are a UK retailer, so I am sure the size change is to allow for the difference in sizing. Yours Clothing carries not only their own line but many other brands as well, including some of the brands we have already talked about. They have a wide selection from basics to fashion forward pieces. Why buy them on Amazon? It looks like you get quicker delivery time through Amazon as well as having the added buyer protection Amazon gives. Unfortunately when you deal with international shipping you never know what can go wrong.
