Perfect Party Dresses for Your Figure: Curvy or Plus Sizes

First, let me say I despise the term "plus size". It's actually laughable now, really. I've been hearing women who are a size 10 or 12 being referred to as "Plus size"-it's ridiculous and irritating. Excuse that short rant but I just had to get that out there. Here are some fabulous tips and styles for curvy figures!


- If you're curvy, don't hide under over sized or super flowy dresses! It does nothing for your figure! Chose something with a great shape!

- Dresses that are fitted at the waist and flair out are great for curvy girls!

- Show off your most loved feature! Love your chest? Choose a dress with a lower neckline! Love your legs? Show them off!

Some Great Styles:

Raspberry Satin Feather Hem Dress
This dress is so cute and fun! The pretty red color is perfect for the holiday season too and the black feather trim at the hem is pretty adorable too!

I've always had a hard time finding dresses. They either fit on the top, or on the bottom.. very rarely as a unit. >.<

These are all cute, thanks for the recommendations!
