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.
