Romantic & Vintage Plus-Size Clothing Report

Women who dress with a romantic sensibility often use softer styles and fabrics from earlier eras. Not quite BoHo, softer than Modern Classics, and less direct in its referencing to pure vintage, this style borrows from all to create feminine ensembles.  Skirts and dresses are common choices, along with soft color palettes in pastels, coral, orchid purple, pink, cream, and vintage white. Classic black can accent looks creating a foil for other colors.

Silhouettes are frequently free flowing with longer hem lengths, tunic length tops, and classic cut jeans in dark washes, patterns, or embellished.  Soft fabrics such as chiffon and lace are popular, with richer brocades, velvets, leathers and suedes mixing in during cooler weather.  Patterns and textures are generally feminine without crossing the line into cutesy.   Porcelain tile and vase patterns in blue along with floral lace are the prints to look for in 2014. Lingerie and sleepwear has a distinctly vintage sensibility in satins, lace, and chiffon.

Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Romantic Style Fashion

For upscale options, look for labels such as Michael Simon and Caroline Rose at Neiman Marcus which also has one of the best collections of flowing palazzo pant styles and the more romantic Johnny Was designer looks.  Saks Fifth Avenue is an excellent resource for the vintage inspired Single and Beyond Vintage labels, in addition to florals often used by Fuzzi.  Tadashi Shoji formalwear is some of the most romantic designer special occasion attire available and frequently carried here to size 24W.  Look for the silk art-to-wear Citron label at Nordstrom, which also stocks an excellent selection romantic dresses for all occasions.

A catalog with softer, feminine options Soft Surroundings is a particularly good spot for both long, flowing skirts and romantic, vintage inspired sleepwear .  Meanwhile, Pyramid Collection is one of the best spots for vintage nostalgia tops, dusters, and skirts with lots of lace options in sizes to 28W.  At television shopping network QVC look for Isaac Mizrahi, LOGO by Lori Goldstein, and Nicole Richie  for softer styles.  This is also an excellent spot for vintage inspired accessories including rings and necklaces in larger sizes.  Midnight Velvet has embellished jeans, feminine tops, and vintage inspired dresses in sizes to 3X.

Super size women will want to check out the options at both SWAK and eShakti.  Both the separates and dresses at Igigi can also have a softer, more feminine flavor is fabrics such as chiffon.  Kiyonna is best know for their lace dresses, but also can sometimes have floral prints appealing to soft dressers.

Trendy, value shoppers are sure to find some pretty floral, lace, and chiffon options at Deb Shops.  British retailer Asos can also be a good resource for more trend driven romantics.   ModCloth offers limited runs of indie designer fashion, much of which has a mid-20th century retro flavor, but other more romantic inspired periods are also referenced in sizes to 4X. 

Those looking for the Art Deco vibe will want to check out the beaded flapper dress styles at Unique Vintage which also carries one of the best accessory collections for vintage romantics.  Maya Boutique on eBay offers one of the best collections of romantic layering toppers and kimonos in cut velvets, while Wear Dreams Are Made is a must-stop for the nostalgic romanticism of Titanic-era chiffon dresses.

Some of the most romantic lingerie including pretty lace and sexy satins available in plus-size can be found in the Cacique collection at Lane Bryant.  Corsets and baby dolls with a sexy yet romantic vibe is also reliably available at Hips & Curves.
