Petite and Plus Size: Looking for the Perfect Occasion Dress?

Are you looking for the perfect summer occasion dress?

It’s safe to say summer has started and if your anything like me, when you need a dress in a hurry it’s impossible!

Whether is a Wedding, a christening or an event,  you’ll always be in need for THAT perfect summer dress.

Being Petite and Plus Size is difficult to go shopping and find something straight away and for the right budget.

Being Plus Size especially, we always seem to be paying more (AKA Fat TAX!) for brands. I’ve picked a couple of dresses that will compliment your figure and that wont break the bank!

Tesco Floral Dress £25.00

Yes that’s right TESCO! Florence and Fred had some amazing finds and are great prices too.

This dress goes up to a size 22, goes to show that without that PLUS SIZE label you can still find clothes to wear. This dress is the perfect length for petite and plus size showing the right amount of leg to show off your pins yet pulls you in at the waist creating that prom like flare!

I felt like a million dollars in this dress and it really doesn’t look like it’d be from Tesco. The details are everything!

New Look Lace Skater Dress £44.99

There are only so many words to describe the beauty of this dress. Its lightweight yet beautifully details and so comfortable on. The sizing is true to form and easy to wear all day without feeling uncomfortable. The lace detailing on the neckline is very flattering and again like the above dress its fit and flare at the waistline to hide the belly and give shape or compliment your shape. For me it hid my large hips yet showed off my waits and I felt super confident in it!

This dress goes up to a size 18 but like I said its true to size and the material is very giving. New Look also have a Curve range with plenty more to choose from so if your size is bigger I’m confident you will find something.
