I’ve been looking for good, decent dresses that one can wear to work and that are non-revealing but beautiful. Finally, I found them on Amazon (where else?). I was a little nervous about buying them without trying them on but I know both these designers (not personally, of course), and their clothes usually fit me well. I also appreciate them because they have clothes in my sizes. Too often, you can’t find anything good in a size larger than 6. And I’m a lot larger than six, of course. The dresses are expensive but these designers make the kind of clothes you can wear for a decade and they still look like new.
So here they are:
The dress on the left is by Jones New York and it is available in size 14. Oh, what a miracle! It costs $134.
In real life, it looks a lot better than in the photo. The fabric is very unique in a way that makes you want to touch it immediately.
And it looks a lot better on a more full-figured woman than on this model. (No disrespect to the model, of course.)
I’d post photos of me in the dress but a have a rat’s nest on my head right now, so that will have to wait.
The dress on the right is by Evan Picone. It costs $99 right now. I also got it on size 14. This style looks perfect on a larger woman.
I always thought that olive was not my color but it turns out it is.
I’m not very tall, just 5’6, so both dresses come below my knee. Which is exactly what I wanted for teaching.
Many women say they are not into dresses but a dress is perfect for a lazy person or for somebody who doesn’t have a lot of time in the morning to select an outfit. With a dress, you don’t have to choose different garments for the top and the bottom and think about whether they will match. You just put it on and forget about it. Also, I find that it is much easier for a larger woman to find a well-fitting dress than well-fitting pants. I dread shopping for pants because it always puts me into a vile mood. And I haven’t owned a pair of jeans in over a decade because for a woman with a noticeable behind jeans are a torture device.
A dress also allows you to show off your shoes in a way that pants don’t. Dresses look great with flats, which is the kind of footwear I prefer.
I think I’m going to start a pro-dress campaign now.
