Plus Size Clothing in Formal Styles

Having a wardrobe with lots of variety is important for every woman.  But it can be tough for plus size women to find styles they like to match some settings.  For example, many women have trouble finding plus size clothing in formal styles.

In recent years, however, more options have become available for women who want to look dressy and formal while still feeling comfortable in their outfit and accentuating their body’s strengths.  Here are some suggestions for formal and mature plus size clothing for women.


Plus size dresses look great and are perfect for lots of different formal events.  Whether you are attending an anniversary party, a wedding, a banquet, a Christmas party, or a New Year’s dance, a dress is a great option.  Many designers have created styles for different body shapes so that women of any shape can get a great fit with their dress.

Remember that when it comes to plus size dresses, a simple and clean look is best.  A dress with too loud a print or too many embellishments can draw excess attention to problem areas.  Dresses are easy to accessorize since they look great with a sweater, cardigan, or jacket.


A lot of women like the professional and formal style of a plus size suit.  You can get both pant and skirt suits, depending on which style you prefer.  Suits are most commonly used as office plus size clothing and for formal events like church services.  They look great with some simple jewelry and perhaps a matching hat.


A favorite amongst women of size is putting together a formal outfit using plus size separates.  Open front dress jackets look fantastic with a nice pair of pants and some dressy accessories.  These outfits are great for parties where you want to look stylish while mingling, dining, and dancing.

The ideal fashions are mature plus size clothing for women that are light, fit comfortably, and look fantastic.  If you have had trouble finding nice outfits in local stores, why not start shopping online?  Many online stores cater specifically to plus size women.


Stephen, Your Designer

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
