1920’s Plus Size Flapper Dress at Macys.com

1920’s style dresses are coming into vogue this season. Beaded flapper dresses with layers of fringe, strands of glistening beads, and feather trim are all walking the runways. Tiered dresses are another 1920s inspired design that are coming out in a variety of colors and materials from stretch cotton for simple day dresses to sheer chiffon for summer garden parties.

Details like pleated skirts and handkerchief hem skirts and dresses (pictured left) are other elements of 1920’s fashion making its way into your modern wardrobe.

While most 1920’s dresses were sleeveless a large number 1920’s inspired dresses are coming with cute long sleeve jackets. The addition of a jacket adds to the overall vintage style and comfort  of these dresses. Find your 1920’s Plus Sizes dress here. Learn more about the history of plus size fashion in the 1920’s.

1930’s Style Floral Dress at OneStopPlus.com

1930’s style bias cut dresses have not had a major revival since the early 1990’s. However floral dresses are in (especially in the UK) and many of these patterned dresses embrace elements of 1930’s fashion. For example the handkerchief hem, mid shin length, Georgette material, and flutter sleeves are all details that can add 1930’s style to a modern floral dress.

While I don’t have enough plus size 1930’s dresses to call for a separate shop page I have made sure to highlight dresses available in plus sizes on the 1930’s plus dresses page. Look for dresses with “plus size” in the title.

 

1940’s Plus Size Dress

1940’s Style Dress from IGIGI.com

Plus size fashion dresses int he 1940sThe nice thing about the 1940’s was that dresses didn’t need a lot of special cuts and trims to make them special. The 1940’s decade was home to the “less is more” mentality and that means simple A-line dresses were the rule. Most summer dresses are A-line cut with wrap or shirtwaist tops, mid arm length sleeves, and nipped in waist bands. These are classic and timeless.  The ones with the most 40’s appeal are those of solid colors of green, blue and grey or fun vertical stripes and small all over summer prints of flowers. The shirtwaist dress which closes down the front with a long row of buttons was most popular in the 1940s and stayed so through today. The shirtdress has changed very little over time making them an instant 40’s look.

Now for you 1940’s pin ups and bombshells there are many amazing plus sizes dresses for you. It’s no surprise that these snug fitting, hour glass loving, dresses are made for plus size gals. Va va va voom! Go knock ‘em dead showing off your curves in one of these 40’s style dresses at your next event. See the selection on the 1940’s Plus Size Dresses page.

Now even more designers are jumping on the 1950’s bandwagon and giving you more style, more colors, more retro designs to choose from. See all the new additions on the 1950’s plus size dresses page.

 

I expect to add even more plus sizes dresses soon.  So bookmark these new pages and check back often for the latest vintage style plus sizes dresses.
