Designer Dress Report

Designer dresses are becoming easier to find in  larger sizes as big department stores begin stocking fashion in sizes larger than twelve.   High-end designers are still hard to find in plus, but more and more major designers are offering mid-level ready-to-wear, diffusion, and capsule collections in plus-sizes. Sources include small boutiques, department stores, capsule collections for major retailers, and home shopping networks.

Sizes over a 24W are still extremely rare and limited mainly to a few independent, plus-specialist designers.

Generally, more plus-size designer dresses are available on-line than in most in store locations.

Styles run the gamut from contemporary, casual looks suitable for weekend and vacation wear to cocktail dresses and special occasion formalwear for gala events, holiday parties, and weddings.  A growing number of work appropriate styles are offered in designer collections at larger sizes as women's roles in professional spaces expand.

Plus-size designer dresses are suitable for work and special occasions.  When you appreciate quality fabrics and great fit, as much as lasting style, designer plus-size dresses
are what you are looking forward.  More and more high profile designers are willing to design for plus-sizes, but there are also wonderful smaller boutique plus-size dress designers
that you will want to  try.  Designer plus-size dresses are often classic to contemporary in style with clean modern lines, but a growing number of collections are branching out into
more styles to suit a wider range of  tastes.  A majority plus-size designer dresses are only available up to a 24W/3X but there are a few exceptions that design for larger sizes.
