Does a little black dress really have to be black? I say a plus size girl can really benefit from a print so I say these black print dresses will work anywhere a LBD will! Prints have a great way of camouflaging bumps and lumps as well as underarm sweat – that happens to many women, not just us big girls!

Avenue – Avenue Plus Size Tonal Chevron Hatchi Sheath Dress

Avenue - Avenue Plus Size Tonal Chevron Hatchi Sheath Dress

A tone-on-tone pattern is always flattering! And horizontal chevrons are much more wearable than stripes and on point for the must-have pattern of the season (though I keep hoping chevrons have had their time in the limelight and are ready to go).

A sweater dress for a plus size woman? Only the most confident will wear this body-hugging style (or those who wear Spanx). Me? I’m a Spanx-free girl – I like to breath.

Catherines – Plus Size LACE SWEETHEART DRESS Catherines Women’s Dark Gray

Catherines - Plus Size LACE SWEETHEART DRESS Catherines Women's Size 2X, Dark Gray

This one is technically dark gray, but I included it for those nights you need a little lace. This color is less formal and softer and more feminine than its black counterpart.

Catherines – Plus Size Sunburst Crystal Dress Catherines Women’s, Black

Catherines - Plus Size Sunburst Crystal Dress Catherines Women's, Black

This is one of my favorite plus size little black dresses. The allover crystal pattern on the front gives the eye all kinds of places to land. It’s a simple dress made amazing by the touch of a few crystals.

Catherines – Plus Size Diamond Pane Shift Dress Catherines Women’s, Black

Catherines - Plus Size Diamond Pane Shift Dress Catherines Women's, Black

This dress may appear a little boxy on this model, but it’s the perfect dress for the plus sized woman with an hourglass shape and large breasts. Dresses without horizontal seams are best suited for these ladies, of which I am one. Horizontal seaming rarely falls in the right place for women with DDD breasts.

Catherines – Plus Size Mi Amour Dress Catherines Women’s Black

Catherines – Plus Size Slim Line Shift Dress Catherines Women’s, Black

Catherines - Plus Size Slim Line Shift Dress Catherines Women's, Black

Why can’t they put sleeves on this dress??? I LOVE it, but how many plus size girls feel comfortable in sleevless dresses? Heck, I didn’t even wear them when I was skinny! The option is to cover it up with a sweater which would spoil the perfect and slimming vertical lines!
