Hey lovely ladies, choosing the right dress for a special occasion is a delightful journey, especially when you're blessed with curves. As one of the leading choices for plus size dresses in Australia, we understand the nuances of dressing up for diverse occasions. With this in mind, we've crafted a guide to help you navigate through the world of dresses, ensuring you shine inside and out. Whether you're attending a wedding or a baby shower, there's a style and silhouette tailored for you. Let's delve deep into the heart of dressing right for every special event:
Weddings: Radiate Sophistication and Comfort
Ah, weddings! These are celebrations of love and commitment, where every guest becomes part of the couple's story. But what does one wear? Women often wonder about the perfect balance between not outshining the bride yet making a mark. The key is to opt for dresses that accentuate the curves, preferably with A-line cuts or empire waistlines that skim gracefully over the hips. Soft, flowing fabrics are your best friend, offering comfort for those long ceremonies and receptions.
In terms of tone, think classic, elegant shades. Pastels, muted metallics, or rich jewel tones can be fantastic choices. The Aphrodite Dress from our collection is a harmonious blend of comfort and Grecian style elegance that speaks volumes without trying too hard.

Engagement Parties: Playful Elegance and Versatility
Engagement parties offer more room for experimenting than weddings. They're less formal, more personal. Consider dresses that can be accessorised in different ways. Perhaps a neckline that can be highlighted with a statement necklace or a design that pairs well with both heels and (or) flats. Given the more relaxed nature of engagements, dresses that cinch at the waist and flare out slightly can be incredibly flattering for fuller figures.
The energy at these events is jubilant, almost electric. Therefore, choose colours that are vibrant but not overly loud. Our Cora Maxi Dress, with its subtle elbow bishop sleeves, can be the playful yet elegant pick you're looking for.
New Year's Eve: Shimmer, Shine, and Celebrate
New Year's Eve is the universe's way of saying it's party time! Sequins, glitter, metallics - it's the night to shine. For our curvy divas, think dresses that have a bit of structure, perhaps with ruching around the midsection or a lovely one-shoulder dress design. The aim is to highlight your best features while still being comfortable enough to dance the night away.
As midnight approaches and the world embraces a fresh start, bold colours like royal blues, deep reds or even classic blacks can make a statement. Dive into our One Shoulder Long Maxi Dress for that blend of elegance and festive joy.
Baby Showers: Soft Hues and Comfortable Silhouettes
When it's a celebration of life and motherhood, think soft, pastel shades and breathable fabrics. Maxi dresses, wrap dresses, or even empire waist designs are comfortable and chic choices for expectant moms or attendees. The key is to feel relaxed and radiant.
A gentle touch of floral, perhaps a hint of lace or delicate embroidery, can add to the charm of the day. For a sunny outdoor shower or a cozy indoor one, our Summer Maxi Dresses Collection offers options that echo the tender, joyful vibes of baby showers.

Anniversary Parties: Romantic Flair and Timeless Beauty
Anniversaries are celebrations of love stories. It's the time to revisit old memories while making new ones. Depending on the theme and venue, opt for dresses that mirror romance. Think flowing fabrics, perhaps a hint of shimmer, or even soft ruffles.
Plus-sized ladies can opt for mermaid silhouettes or dresses that offer a little flare, ensuring ease of movement. For colour palettes, romantic shades like blush pink, champagne, or even a deep wine can work wonders. Our Low Back Ruffle Maxi Dress might just be the touch of whimsy and elegance you're looking for.
