Plus Size Occasion Wear: A Guide to Looking Your Best

Dressing up for special events is more than just stepping into a beautiful outfit—it’s about feeling as fabulous as you look. This guide is dedicated to the curvy ladies who love style, comfort, and a dash of sophistication. With our collections at P.S. Frocks, including the stunning Alexa, Cora, and Kaftan-Style Maxi Dresses, finding your perfect plus size dresses in Australia has never been easier.

The Importance of Fit

Feeling Comfortable is Key to Confidence: To truly shine in your plus size occasion wear, it starts with how you feel in what you're wearing. Comfort leads to confidence. It’s essential to choose dresses that flatter without restricting, allowing you to move freely and enjoy the occasion without discomfort.

Play to Your Strengths: Every woman has unique features that make her beautiful. Opt for dresses that highlight your best attributes—whether it’s your neckline, waist, or curves. For instance, avoid clingy fabrics or cuts that are tight in the wrong places, which might make you self-conscious. Instead, embrace styles that enhance your shape comfortably.

Avoid Uncomfortable Features: Steer clear of designs that don't make you feel your best, like overly low-cut tops or overly tight waistlines. Our Cora Maxi dresses and Aphrodite Dresses are perfect examples of how a well-fitted dress can enhance natural curves with elegance and ease.

Choosing the Right Colours and Prints

Embrace Sophisticated Shades: While bright colours are fun, sophisticated shades like deep emerald green, steel, navy, and mulberry reflect a timeless elegance that suits any special occasion. These colours not only flatter but also remain memorable for their classic appeal.

Prints for Personality: If you prefer prints, choose ones that complement rather than overwhelm. The Alexa Maxi dress in black floral is a prime example of how a print can be both striking and suitable for those looking for plus size dresses that offer a hint of romance and flair.

Accessorising for Timeless Elegance

Statement Jewellery: Choose accessories that align with the timeless look of your dress. A statement piece can be the focal point of your outfit or a subtle complement to your overall look.

Shoes and Bags: Opt for classic styles in shoes and handbags that match the sophistication of your outfit. Comfort should never be compromised, especially when you expect to be on your feet for long periods.

Dressing for Every Occasion

Weddings, Cocktail Parties, and Formal Events: Whether it’s the flowing elegance of our Kaftan-style maxis or the tailored charm of our Cora dresses, each style is designed to make you look and feel fantastic. For example, the Kaftan-style Maxi dress in emerald is perfect for those who prefer a dress that's both eye-catching and effortlessly chic.
