For work, play, or holiday, look fabulous in a flattering plus size fall wrap dress. As I’ve said, wrap dresses are workhorses. They can be worn to work and both day and evening events, such as graduations, wedding/baby showers, or dinner parties. The wrap dress is an easy choice for a date night. And can be dressed up with accessories for a wedding.
Aside from looking classic and polished, they are also very flattering. Apples will especially like the tie just under the bust to create that faux waist that I talk about in my Styling Tips for Plus Size Apple Shapes post.
Because you can get so much use out of them, I recommend investing in a wrap dress that is high quality. You will absolutely get a return on your investment and then some. When possible, choose a “true” wrap rather than “faux” wrap dress. And lastly, look for dresses that are easy to care for. Meaning, avoid dry clean only fabrics.
“True” vs “Faux” Wrap Dresses
To clarify, a “true” wrap dress is one in which the tie, neckline, and fit, can be adjusted when the dress is tied closed. Where as a “faux” wrap dress looks similar in style but can’t be adjusted because the pieces are sewn together in such a way as to create the illusion of a wrap dress without the adjustability. Often you will see inexpensive or budget options in this “faux” wrap style. One of the reasons is that the “faux” wrap dresses cost less to make as they use less fabric and they take less time to sew. So, if you can afford a “true” wrap dress, they are totally worth it!
