Evening Dresses for Full Figures

If you have a full figure, I don’t need to tell you how challenging it is to find clothes that are truly flattering. It seems as if fashion designers are intent on designing their clothes for skinny women!

The good news: when it comes to evening gowns, many styles are actually very flattering for full figures. Here at Sung Boutique, most of our dresses are sized for women sizes 4-18, or XS – 2XL, so whether you’re smaller or larger, we have something fabulous for you.

If you’re full figured, you should probably avoid too much fabric and go with simple, clean lines. In most cases, you should also avoid a tight dress. A-line dresses will look especially good on you – one of our favorite A-line evening dresses is this Gold Satin Evening Dress – one of our best sellers. It draws the eyes to your upper body and the way the skirt drapes around your body is very slimming and forgiving.

If you prefer a shorter length dress, the same rules apply – so while this gorgeous Turquoise Pleated Party Dress will look great on smaller sizes, you might want to go with a more flowy style, such as this Red Satin Top Cocktail Dress.

It’s important to remember that full figured women need not wear tents! While tight fitting clothes are probably not the best choice for you, you should still wear well-fitting clothes that make the most of your curves instead of trying to hide them.
