Plus Size Special Occasion Dresses

Got a special occasion coming up? Don’t stress about the dress. From sophisticated black-tie stunners to glamorous prom-perfect numbers, discover plenty of plus size special occasion dresses designed with curvy women and teens in mind.

The Long & Short Of It
Take it to the dance floor with long, below-the-knee dresses from Trixxi and Xscape or short floral sheaths from Modamix and Love Squared. Get ready for enchanting evenings in A-line gowns from Patra. Or go sleek with Calvin Klein. Don’t want to go sleeveless? Try Alex Evenings for dresses featuring pretty cap sleeves and sets with matching jackets.

Strong Attention To Detail
Darling details have the power to transform a formal dress. Perfectly placed studs or sequins highlight Adrianna Papell and Alfani (only at Macy’s) gowns with just the right amount of shine. Love texture? Shake it up with tiered ruffle skirts from Betsy & Adam or lace-trimmed faux wrap frocks from NY Collection or ING Plus.
