Retro & Modern Vintage Plus-Size Dress Report

Style influences are coming from many different vintage eras, both through modern high fashion designer collections using the past as points of reference and through movies and television shows set in the past.

Authentic plus-size vintage dresses are almost impossible to find, although many silhouettes are very flattering to the fuller figure. Fortunately, the current interest and re-interpretation of retro fashion for a modern vintage flavor is making many of those dress styles available in larger sizes at a wide variety of price points. 

Some eras are more suited to cocktail dresses and evening wear, while others are perfect matches for day dress styles. Certain style eras are also particularly popular with very specific style tribes and sub-sets, while others are entering mainstream fashion.  Interpretations are often available for both the young, trendy fatshionista, and her more mature counterparts as the vintage style influence enters the mainstream.  Some of the more glamorous and romantic vintage styles are making the biggest impact in wedding and formalwear.

Plus-size vintage and retro inspired dresses are all the rage right now.  From art deco influences of  the Jazz Age to the full skirts of the Fifties.  From sassy peplums taking their
cue from the Forties and the Eighties to Mod Sixties sheath and shift dresses.  The Seventies enter the mix with disco era detailing and maxi dress panache.
