Taylor Dresses Polka Dot Fit & Flare Dress (Plus)
Ordered several plus size dresses. Most looked like a big sack on a lumpy person, but this dress is amazing!!!! Every seam in the design gives definition in a very good way to a plus size figure. My apple figure actually looks hourglass. Wish they had this in more colors/prints. I'd buy every one!
So Cute and Flirty!
This look was so "out of the box" for me, but I tried it on anyway. It was adorable (even on me)! The shoulders had to be taken up, but otherwise the fit was perfect, and flattered my busty/big tummy figure. I was a bit uncomfortable with the short length, but for a summer event, it works. I am having it lengthened (I'm 5'3") for my own issues even though the sales and alterations associates urged me to keep it at the knee. I'll be wearing it with a short black jacket, but if it gets hot, I wouldn't mind the sleeveless look.
PS. I actually loved the exposed zipper. Made it look young and hip.
Perfect for spring wedding
I would never had thought this dress would be ok for me if I only saw a picture. Luckily I was in the store and was able to try it on. It's so cute. I'm only 5'4' so this dress is a little longer on me than the model. On my apple shaped body, this dress is so flattering. It shows the decolletage without a bunch of clevage. It's got a nice structured waisteline that lays nice and keeps everything from sticking out. The full skirt camoflages that lower tummy area and the hits me just at the knee. I love the pockets too. Although I plan to wear a shug, I could wear this without too as the arm holes fit nice, not so big that my bra shows. This dress is youthful compared to most plus sized dresses. Definatly something different and exactily what I was looking for.
Great for an apple shape?
This dress might be the cutest dress I've ever seen online. I LOVE IT. It's well made, the fabric is gorgeous, and the skirt flares just right. PRECIOUS.
Downsides: The top is huge. HUGE. As in, I have a very large bust and it was enormous, yet fit perfectly around my waist. I'm pear shaped with a large bust and am intimately acquainted with my tailor, but this was even beyond her master work.
Second downside? A GIANT gold tone, exposed zipper down the dress. Honestly, this would have been enough to make me return it. It doesn't make the dress look modern or fun, it just degrades an otherwise lovely dress. Even a giant exposed silver zipper would have been more tolerable. The zipper just makes it look cheap. The extra $2 in labor cost for an inset zipper would have made a huge difference.
