Plus Size Dresses

The dress is the signature garment women have been wearing for centuries and our range plus size dresses are made from gorgeous flowing fibres and cut to shape and flatter every woman's figure. When it comes to choosing the best fitting and most comfortable plus size clothing, Best&Less has a complete range for you to choose from including activewear for gym trips and getting hot and sweaty and jackets and knitwear for wearing over our range of plus size dresses, ideal for covering up less flattering assets and highlight the ones you want to be on show. Browse our selection of plus size lace and sexy lingerie designed for the fuller figure and for keeping warm through the winter months choose from our selection of plus size jumpers and sweaters.

When you don't feel like wearing pants or jeggings, skirts or shorts, it's the dress that is always the answer and our selection of plus size dresses have a style and design for every occasion. When it comes to choosing the best and more flattering design from our range of plus size dresses, it helps to look into the past when curvy figures were usually the ones being painted by all of the artistic greats.

The common factors you see across women in dresses from the past include some design and styling tricks that are still useful today. The first one is to accentuate the smallest part of your figure. In the past, women would do this with a corset and we do have a range of shapewear which can help you achieve a similar look, but if you're looking for some casual and weekend wear, the last thing you want to feel is restricted or uncomfortable. Instead, go for maxi dresses and midi dresses which fall from the bust. These are particularly useful for women with a pear body shape as under the bust is often the smallest area.

By choosing curve dresses which fall gently from a single seam, such as a maxi or midi style which falls from the bust, you can effortlessly gloss over the parts of your figure that you don't want to accentuate without feeling restricted or uncomfortable.

Our range of maxi dresses include a collection of plus size designs in a range of colours and patterns, textures and styles. Teamed with a cotton cover up, you can rock any neckline from tank straps to v neck. For apple body shaped women, always go for low scoop necks and v necklines which draw the eye down your body to the smallest parts of you like the tops of your legs and your ankles.

For midi dress design ideas, choose from our selection of drop waist garments which help to draw the eye down to your hips and even out your figure by generating a fuller look in the hip than you may necessarily have in reality. Midi dress lengths make perfect cocktail dresses for wearing both in the evening and to afternoon or lunch events.

If party dresses are on the agenda and you're looking for a summer frock you can go to for nearly every weekend event, then you can pass up the comfortable tank dress. Designed as an elongated t-shirt with sleeves generally just past the mid upper arm, these comfortable pieces fit around your form, allowing your natural curves to give it some much-needed shape and fullness. Choose dark colours like black and navy - which suits every skin tone - rather than white or opt for large print texture rather than smaller textural patterns. Our selection of plus size dresses includes summer weight party frocks for every form and figure.

When searching evening wear and formal plus size dresses, the wrap dress is the ultimate design which effortlessly suits every woman's body type. The wrap dress was designed by Diane von Furstenberg in 1974 and the simple silhouette it created then is in just as hot demand right now. This stunning design usually uses cotton or jersey printed fabric and wraps around the body to cinch in at the waist. It accentuates all of the right assets and covers troubling tummies perfectly. Consider our range of large size wrap dresses for every fancy occasion and enjoy the comfort of form fitting but flexible fabric gently hugging your body.

If you're in love with your figure and you want to show it off to the world then the bodycon dress is the must-have for you. Named for the body confidence you need to pull this dress, this form fitting and figure hugging piece is generally made from stretch fabric and clings to every part of your figure. Particularly suited for hourglass body shapes, the bodycon can be worn by anybody, really, who's feeling fit and fierce with their body and wants to share how they feel with the world.
