I love the shape of this dress. No matter what your size try to find a dress with an element of 'fitted' somewhere. This fitted waist draws your attention in and the fuller skirt away from the hips. Don't dress baggy all over.
This lace dress by Adrianna Papell is a perfect excuse to get "dressed" up! sleeves and flared skirt with ribbon belt are so flattering for most body shapes. Lace Fit & Flare Dress (Plus Size) available at
