Courtney requested a few picks for plus sized attire appropriate for a formal ball, so here we go:
Igigi Letta – was $175, now $159.99
Nothing makes a bold statement like a wash of red, and this elegant gown is bound to turn some heads. That plunge neckline can accommodate a v-shaped bib or fun pendant, and you can throw on a printed wrap to fend off the chill. Available in sizes 12 – 28. (Here’s a similar style in sizes 0 -12.)
Patra Plus V-neck Evening Gown – was $229, now $194.65
with code GIFT
Such a great twist on a basic black gown. I love the matte bodice and shiny skirt, with the bonus of tone-on-tone hem embroidery. This would be a great choice for someone who doesn’t dig flashy jewelry, since a simple pendant and earrings would look perfect. Available in sizes 14W – 22W. (Here’s the exact same dress in size 6 – 18 … sadly not on sale.)
JR Nites Sleeveless Beaded Chiffon Gown – was $189, now $128.34
with code GIFT
If you like a little sparkle in your evening gown, this one is ever so elegant. The bodice beading is fun but relatively subtle, and the waterfall of ruffles on the skirt make this a decidedly feminine frock. Comes with matching wrap. Available in sizes 14W – 24W. (Same dress in sizes 6 – 18.)
ABS Luxury Collection Fit & Flare Dress – was $368, now $220.80
A formal ball generally calls for floor-length, but in case you’ve got a slightly less traditional evening event on the horizon this classic fit and flare frock would be dynamite. There’s a little tulle lining under the skirt to give it some lift, and that neckline is just begging for a statement necklace. Available in sizes 14W – 22W. (Here’s a similar style in sizes 2 -14, including some petites.)
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for plus sized attire appropriate for a formal ball:
- eDressme – Just a handful of options, but all very glam.
- Nordstrom – Includes some lovely options with sleeves that will keep you warm in the chilly night air.
- Igigi – Gorgeous floor-length options and lots of embellished formal dresses that would be perfect for a cocktail reception.
