Like the casual section of your wardrobe can't look complete without those basic denims, the formal section stays incomplete without the classy gowns. Gowns form a major part of women's closet. Having a few basic styles of gowns in your closet is much essential so that you do not need to run for arranging an outfit at the end moment while attending any formal occasion. With gowns available in various styles and sizes, even the fuller figures can find suitable pieces for themselves and dress up in a stylish way for formal as well as casual occasions. Here's more about the plus-size gown patterns which you can check out in the women's plus-size section.
Patterns to Choose From
Browse through the collection of gowns in larger sizes and you will be surprised to see the amazing styles and designs available in these. Well, choosing the right pieces amongst these is an important part of the entire shopping exercises. A wrong style of gown can simply ruin your looks and, at times make you look much more bulkier.
You can start your search with the most attractive looking empire waist gowns. Go for the A-line pattern or a straight fit style. If you are getting the gown stitched to get the classy tailored fit, then consider adding a slight mermaid styled cut to the piece and get set to flaunt your ultimate looking gown pattern. Empire waists are much popular in plus-sizes and are often paired with strapless neckline. A strapless pattern with layered or pleated empire waist design can further spice up the outfit. A gown made of plain and soft fabrics that fall well on your body with patterned empire waist is all that you need to wear a glamorous look. This makes one of the beautiful plus-size bridal gown patterns with ivory or white fabrics.
Another pattern that you can opt for is a short gown with empire waistline. Many fuller figured ladies can carry the halter neckline very well. If you are one of those, then this is one of the prettiest patterns to opt for and don a smart look for an evening party. A slightly embellished empire waistline, followed by a 2-3 inch of patterned or satin waistband and a straight fit style extending just a few inches below your knees is what you can opt for. Instead of fitted bodice, you can opt for the pleated waistline with soft flow. This definitely makes one of the stunning plus-size evening gowns when made using jet black fabric.
Another style of gown which looks pretty in plus-size section is the one with broad 'V' neckline and sleeveless pattern. The regular waistline having a belt tied at one side with no pleats, further finished with tight fit or A-line style in short pattern is sure to make a formal, yet fancy gown for evening wear. Same pattern in A-line style with length extended till feet also suits the fuller figures. While adding sleeves, avoid bell sleeves and those with slits. Sheer sleeves and those with tight fit make nice sleeved patterns.
Remember that when you choose one, pick those in colors like black, chocolate brown, crimson, wine, olive green, bright peacock green, or magenta pink. Colors like taupe, lavender, ice blue, ivory and white are good picks in soft shades. While you browse through the lovely patterns it is essential to avoid those having horizontal prints, very tiny prints or even those bold and flashy large prints. Apart from this, textured fabrics are best to be kept away along with the stiff organza and other such fabrics. Satins, linen, silk with sheath and sheers make interesting gown designs. Avoid ruffles and to many layers as these can lead give a bulky effect. With the aforementioned tips on hot picks and 'must avoid' styles, I am sure that you will be able to pick the perfect gowns and wear a gorgeous look.
