Plus-Size Evening Gowns & Dresses @ Elegant Plus
[Editor's Picks Below]

Formal Evening Gowns

Plus-size women need evening dresses and gowns for a variety of occasions throughout their entire lives. Consequently styles can range from youthful and trendy to red carpet sophisticated to mature.  Occasions can range from prom to weddings to black tie social events.  Some gowns are also appropriate for stage performances.

Depending on the event, selections can be chosen from retailers that carry a variety of clothing types (usually lower priced options) or formalwear specialists which can range from one hundred to hundreds of dollars.

It isn't unusual for plus-size women at all ages to prefer extra arm coverage, although younger women are the most likely to be comfortable in more revealing styles.

Formalwear often sizes smaller than regular plus sizes, so be careful to check size charts and don't feel badly if you need to go up one to three sizes.  Shapewear under formal gowns is almost a must to achieve the proper structures and silhouettes.
