The Sara Jumpsuit

Sara is a timeless black jumpsuit that you can wear now and for many seasons to come. A chiffon cross-body ruffle adds dimension and movement, taking this figure flattering jumpsuit to the next level of sophistication. With the perfect pair of heels and dangling earrings, you'll be set in the perfect evening jumpsuit for date night at home now and wedding receptions, upscale dinners or a night of cocktails later.

THE UPTOWN JUMPSUIT

Looking this divine while enjoying complete comfort may be a fashion sin. Buttery soft stretch jersey gorgeously hugs curves. But it's the little bit of thickness in the fabric that truly shows off our figure, without showing off all of our problem bits as well! Complete with a tie belt for accentuating the small of your waist and a wide-leg pant that elongates your figure, the gold metallic Uptown is plus size jumpsuit perfection! Style uptown with a pair of light gold heeled sandals for a stunning tonal outfit ready for any - and every - future celebration.

THE SERENA JUMPSUIT

You can never have too many pieces in your closet that can go from day to night, casual to elegant, just by switching out your accessories. Serena fits into that category perfectly and we love this plus size jumpsuit for so many reasons: the inset waist seam that flatters your curves, the boat neckline that accentuates your collarbone, the wide-leg pant that elongates your figure, and the cobalt blue color. Simply put, you will stand out in this cute jumpsuit no matter where life takes you.


FIT & FLARE DRESS

The fit-and-flare dress gradually flares out from the waist to the hem of the skirt and is fitted in the bodice; a style which is especially becoming on women with curvy figures. Similar to A-line dresses, the fit-and-flare dress is designed to draw attention to the waistline, but has a fuller skirt that’s more forgiving in the hip area. This silhouette is one of the most flattering dresses for curves.

Form-Fitting Dress

Even though form-fitting silhouettes are narrow and fit snugly, they’re a great choice for women who wear plus size dresses. They nicely hug your curves and typically have a good amount of stretch, making them surprisingly comfy to wear.
