Sandra Darren Women's Plus-Size Elbow Sleeve Floral Sheath Dress, Coral Multi, 24W

Sandra Darren Women’s Plus-Size Elbow Sleeve Floral Sheath Dress

I find this faded floral printed laser cut scuba sheath dress to nightgown-esq. While I’m not a fan of the style, I know it’s perfect for plus size lades out there with an apple shape. It skims the larger upper body and shows of the thin legs.

As an hourglass plus size lady, this is one I’ll skip.

Dilanni Women's Strap Sleeveless Floral Printed Summer Beach Bohemian Sundress (2XL, 07Black)

Dilanni Women’s Strap Sleeveless Floral Printed Summer Beach Bohemian Sundress

Is it true that you can’t have too many maxi dresses during the summer?  I say that’s true if the silhouette is right. This is more of a midi-maxi dress which hits mid-shin and since there’s not too much fabric in the skirt, it’s a perfect slim look for summer.

Julian Taylor Women's Plus-Size Sleeveless Floral Shantung Dress, Sorbet/Taupe, 18W

Julian Taylor Women’s Plus-Size Sleeveless Floral Shantung Dress

Yes, this floral dress in sorbet and taupe could come off as too much of a drapery look, but it’s actually very vintage floral so I think it works. The pale orange with the green and taupe are very late 50’s in coloring and the style screams that era as well.

A higher scoop neck will be a problem for ladies with large breasts, but adding a long necklace will put some balance back into your look.

Julian Taylor Women's Plus-Size Sleeveless Floral Print Fit and Flare Dress, Red/Blue, 24W

Julian Taylor Women’s Plus-Size Sleeveless Floral Print Fit and Flare Dress

Fit and flair is my favorite style for easy spring and summer dressing  and this dress shows it off beautifully. And while plus size women are usually told to stay away from horizontal stripes which add width, something we don’t need, this dress is an exception. That’s because this dress incorporates flowers into the stripes so they come off as loose and fun. The floral print is most dense at the waist which makes the waist look small and then they are scattered up towards the collar and down to the hem.

An adorable dress with bright colors balances by navy and cream.

IGIGI Women's Plus Size Tiffany Dress in Floral 30/32

IGIGI Women’s Plus Size Tiffany Dress in Floral

I’m not a fan of most of IGIGI dresses, but I’ll give it to them that at least they use plus size models. It makes it so much easier to see how a dress might actually look on my.

This Tiffany Dress is an exception because of the a-line silhouette, but I still give it a downgrade because of the empire waist. So few plus size ladies can wear an umpire waist without looking pregnant. Big breasts need breathing room so if this waistline had been AT the waist, it would have been perfect.

Adrianna Papell Women's Plus-Size Rose Print Classic Pleat Fit and Flare Dress, Ivory Multi, 16W

Adrianna Papell Women’s Plus-Size Rose Print Classic Pleat Fit and Flare Dress

A sweet floral print in  a tea length dress (though I consider tea length to be a few inches below the knee). It’s a modified fit and flare dress in that it has a waist sewn in and then pleats added to the skirt to reign in some of the fullness. The rose print is on an ivory background and accented by piping at the modest round scoop neckline. It will be a problem for large breasted women  – add a scarf or long necklace to bridge the gap between the neckline and your breasts.

It is perfect for a plus size woman with small breasts and full hips – the skirt will camouflage the hip size making you look more balanced.

Gabby Skye Women's Plus-Size V Neck Floral Fit and Flare Dress, Black/Multi, 24W

Gabby Skye Women’s Plus-Size V Neck Floral Fit and Flare Dress

How can you go wrong with this style? Wide at the shoulders, nipped in at the waist, horizontal pleats to lengthen, and a dark floral print to hide ever bump, bulge, and roll. The only worry I would have is if the width of the skirt is visually wider than the length of the skirt it can look a little dumpy.

Adrianna Papell Women's Plus-Size Placed Rose Print Dress, Blue/Multi, 20W

Adrianna Papell Women’s Plus-Size Placed Rose Print Dress

The way the rose print is added to the dress is so flattering for any plus size lady without a lot of waist definition or a plus size woman with a small waist and large breasts and hips. The print works to balance out the silhouette. Wherever the solid dark navy is will visually recess and the pink will visually come forward.

Adrianna Papell Women's Plus-Size Crossover Bands Printed Dress, White/Navy, 18

Adrianna Papell Women’s Plus-Size Crossover Bands Printed Dress

A sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves make this just about the perfect plus size floral dress. The vertical pattern adds length, nothing is horizontal so it doesn’t cut her in half visually, and the pattern sends your eyes all over which means you’re not seeing the bumps, bulges, and rolls. Of course this woman has none of those….if only we could see plus size dresses on REAL plus size models.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Printed Cotton Boat Neck Sateen Fit and Flare Dress, Ultramarine Combo, 14

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Printed Cotton Boat Neck Sateen Fit and Flare Dress

I love the color and pattern of this ultramarine floral dress by Anne Klein. Unfortunately, this boat neck is best on smaller breasted ladies. Otherwise it’s a stunner with it’s cap sleeves and fit and flare styling.

The print is a place floral instead of a cheaper all-over floral fabric. The difference in the quality is shown in the way it highlights the figure with the roses being smaller and closer together at the waist and flowing out towards the collar and hem growing bigger and looser and showing more of the lovely blue background.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Floral Knit Cap Sleeve Swing Dress, Black/Cream, 14

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Floral Knit Cap Sleeve Swing Dress

This floral knit dress with cap sleeves could be a bit of a disaster. The cream lace over the black background can actually make you look thicker and heavier than you are.

The belt helps, but this dress is best left to the barely plus size ladies with a rather boyish figure or on the dining room table.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size 3/4 Sleeve Printed Cowl Neck Dress, Iris Combo, 16W

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size 3/4 Sleeve Printed Cowl Neck Dress, Iris 

The floral print on this Anne Klein plus size dress is placed so that it adds movement and style wrapping you in curves. The dark background and vivid purple iris, teal, and pink print help highlight your assets and downplay the parts you’d like to keep hidden.

The 3/4 sleeves help hide larger upper arms and the v-neck is flattering without being revealing.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Cap Sleeve V Neck Printed Fit and Flare Dress, Camellia/Black, 16

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Cap Sleeve V Neck Printed Fit and Flare Dress

The print on this dress takes it to the casual side. Perfect for a concert in the park, lunch date, or a movie date. Timeless camellia and black print with fit and flare styling and cap sleeves. A modest v-neck flatters most.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Mini Floral Print Dress, Black/Camellia Multi, 0X

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Mini Floral Print Dress

Most stylists will tell you that plus size women should stay way from tiny prints, but I think this one is an exception. The style of the dress balance out the frame and the overall mini floral camellia and black print comes off as a geometric pattern that seems balanced though granted, this is NOT a plus size woman so it’s hard to judge.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Printed Cap Sleeve Swing Dress, Dahlia/Multi, 22W

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Printed Cap Sleeve Swing Dress

OK, so it’s not a floral, but this Aztec-inspired print with its  cap sleeves and flattering color which they call dahlia, is just to cute not to add. The allover print while horizontal works to add interest instead of adding width.

The modest scoop neck flatters most plus sizes and the natural waist is a nice change from all of the empire waists that seem to be everywhere. A simple and flattering dress.

Anne Klein Women's Plus-Size Printed V-Neck Seamed Dress, Lapis/Ivory, 16 Wide

Anne Klein Women’s Plus-Size Printed V-Neck Seamed Dress

Hello lapis! I love this vivid purple and ivory print. The lightweight cap sleeves add visual width to the shoulders to balance out the hips.

The modest v-neck flatters most and the white belt at the natural waistline helps to define the waist.
