Two of my PSP’s sent me emails asking about plus size formal dresses. Naomi is looking for prom dresses and Rose is on the hunt for plus size wedding guest dresses (so am I!). I grabbed a few of my blogger boo’s of different shapes, sizes and styles and we created a plus size formal look book for you with plus size prom and plus size formal ideas… hope this helps!
Ladies, your emails got me thinking about how hard it is to find trendy plus size formal dresses, especially if you’re on a budget. So we asked the folks at SimplyBe.com and ModCloth.com if they would donate some plus size prom dresses to Project G.L.A.M. a charity that provides prom dresses to girls in need. Both companies agreed AND offered up some gift cards so that five of you can go shopping for your upcoming dances/weddings! We have One $200 gift card and Four $100 gift cards to give away, details on how to win below…
Classic Formal: For our first looks, we all chose classic dresses that fit our personalities. I wore vintage inspired pieces to both of my proms. The delicate sleeves and sheer capelet are a perfect combination for any of my girls who are nervous about showing your arms. You can drape it like a shawl over your arms and then let it hang from the detachable snaps while you’re on the dance floor! This dress also has a full skirt with tulle underneath so its poofy and fun to twirl in (I have a black tie wedding next week and I’m definitely wearing this dress again for that).
Fun Formal: My favorite thing about buying out of the box pieces like a plus size tutu or sequin skirt is that you can pair it with dressy or casual tops and it will always look good. Chastity and I wore super budget friendly tops with our tutus. Allison and Alissa did the same thing with a sequined skirt and a simple black top: add heels and lots of jewelry and we’re good to go!
Our fun day in the park was styled by Meaghan from LittleLimeDress.com
Now for the giveaways! Alissa, Allison, Chastity and I will be choosing winners throughout the week, so don’t forget to use #PlusProm14 so we can find you!
