All White Plus-Size Dresses Report

A summer favorite in crisp cotton, white dresses can be casual or dressy. An option for events such as graduation parties, Easter Sunday, and outdoor music festivals, white dresses have become increasingly popular with women of all sizes.  Plus-size women are no longer hiding exclusively in dark colors when the sun shines and the temperatures rise.    Both summer months and the winter resort and cruise season can provide prime opportunities to choose clean, crisp white dresses.   Meanwhile, winter white, cream, and ecru shades can also be chosen for holiday events and parties.

All White Parties were initially part of the LGBT party circuit in major cities and resort destinations across the U.S.A. and internationally  They became a part of the mainstream when P. Diddy instituted an annual White Party in the Hamptons for July 4. Within the plus community an All White Cruise has become a much anticipated part of the annual Full-Figured Fashion Week calendar.

The question is always what to wear to an All White party? Finding a swank, unique white party dress in plus-sizes can be challenging in a world that believes anyone larger than a size 8 should wear evening black.

Whites vary from snow white to soft creams and off-whites.  Purists often choose to wear snow white but softer whites come in and out of vogue. 

Some White Party dresses can also make nice alternatives for informal weddings.  Second time and older brides may also choose taffeta, brocade, or satin white, cream, or champagne evening suits.

Internet Shopping for Plus-Size White Dresses

Snow white dresses are more readily available seasonally in the summer and resort, cruise, winter getaway times of year.  The best strategy for shopping is to look in spots with the deepest and most extensive plus-size dress inventories.   These include Macy's and Nordstrom in the department store sphere in size 2 to 24W, and eShakti in the on-line exclusive space in size 0 to 36W.  Neiman Marcus often has the deepest collection of resort wear, including more BoHo styles from Johnny Was in size 0 to 24W.

Cataloguers such as Ashro Monroe & Main and Midnight Velvet offer their entire collection in size small to 3X at moderate prices.  Dress and suit options are plentiful all year with both casual, resort styles and special occasion wear consistently available all year.

Those who like trendier looks will want to stop by at Eloquii and Ashley Stewart for size 14 to 26W, a more European aesthetic is available at Asos and Izabel London for size 14 to 28W.
