Summer wedding season is here, which means we're all scrambling to find a new outfit to wear! Finding an outfit to wear to a wedding as a guest can be deceptively difficult, especially if you're curvy. Some weddings allow sleeveless garments and some don't. Cleavage is allowed, but not too much! What kind of weather should you anticipate? Do you need sleeves or not?
If you're curvy, picking a special occasion dress doesn't have to be stressful. Our dresses are designed to work up to an HH cup, so you don't have to worry about one part of your dress fitting and having the rest expensively tailored. Many of our pieces come with adjustable necklines and sleeve options, so your dress can work for whatever the weather throws at you that day. Our dresses are also wrinkle resistant, so you won't have to iron or steam your dress before the wedding if you're traveling.
While many of our dresses work well for special occasions, we're featuring 7 of our favorites today. These dresses are comfortable, flattering and will definitely help you stand out at your next summer wedding.
Our Ana Dress is the short sleeved version of our popular Erica dress, which makes it the perfect summer sundress for nearly every occasion. We love the wrap dress top that won't gap or move as you dance or eat! The floaty skirt gives this dress a classic look, while still feeling flirty and fun. This dress is available in a wide range of fabrics, so you can pick your favorite and wear this dress all year long!
Our Hanky Dress has a fun boho vibe but still fits in perfectly at fancy occasions. We love it in our peacock themed prints, which features sparkly details and saturated colors. The cutout sleeves cover your bra straps while showing some skin, while the asymmetrical hem helps this dress stand out from the crowd.
Beach weddings are really popular - and this dress is perfect for them! Our 70's inspired Karen Dress features bell sleeves and a shift dress style along with a convertible neckline. The off the shoulder style won't shift or move around as you do, while the easy to wear design ensures that you'll get tons of use out of this dress all summer long.
Our retro inspired Angie Dress has a lovely neckline and a giant full skirt! Short sleeves make this great for outdoor weddings. This dress looks great in a wide range of prints, but we think this classic rose print is a lovely choice for a summer wedding look.
Our Debbie Maxi combines a long flowing skirt with our wrap top for an elegant dress that can go from the beach to a fancy party. The 3/4 sleeves make this easy to wear throughout the year, while the sash helps cinch your waist. This dress can be customized to your height, so make sure to let us know how tall you are when you buy it!
This dress is based on the iconic style that Marilyn Monroe made famous, with some full-busted friendly design changes! The retro halter top will work up to an HH cup, while the full skirt has practical hidden pockets to store your phone and other necessities. This look is perfect for someone who loves vintage dresses but has trouble fitting into them!
Last, but certainly not least, is our Bolero Shrug! This shrug can be made in most of our fabrics, so you can either have it match your dress or contrast with it. It is available in lace and solid versions. If you're attending a wedding where the service requires shoulders and arms to be covered but the party doesn't, try our amazing little shrug!
