42 Plus Size New Year’s Eve Gowns

A collection of forty-two plus size New Year’s Eve gowns for formal parties.

It’s been a long time since I last created a “round-up” of gowns, but I’ve heard some of you are heading to some NYE parties this year!

Many of these would also be great for weddings!

By the way, if you’re looking for cocktail dresses, go here.

Inclusive Sizing and Pricing

These gowns are gorgeous and I tried to include something for everyone and everyone’s budget. 

These gowns range in sizes from 12 – 28, but the majority come in sizes 14 – 24. 

As always, make sure you use my Plus Size Shopping Guide to look for places to shop for gowns and/or plus sizes above size 24. 

And the gowns range from $45-$598, with the majority around $250 or less.  Plus, many are on sale!

My Disclaimer

If you’re new here, you might be wondering why all of these plus size gowns have sleeves. 

Personally, I prefer to have my upper arms covered. 

I have some “in progress” body image issues and feel most confident with a sleeve. 

However, finding fancy dresses with a sleeve is actually quite challenging. 

Although I think it is getting better or maybe I’ve just gotten better at finding them. 

Either way, I try to do all of the searching for those of us who want some coverage and have grown tired of wearing shrugs, wraps, and boleros.

However, all of that said, I by no means think that anyone of any shape or size should ever feel obligated or more accepted if their arms are covered. 

Oh hell no!  That is not my message. 

If you want to wear a sleeveless or strapless dress, please do!  If you want to show up to the party half-naked, or hell, totally naked, I support that! 

Whatever makes you feel awesome.  You do you. 

But, if like me, you struggle and want to rock out with your arms not-out, here are my top picks for the season so far:

  1. Alexa, Thank you for finding such fun/beautiful/stylish clothing for plus sized women. I love the seasonal selections that you do. I would love to see your recommendations for funeral attire. I haven’t been to one in some time & forsee needing to attend some as my family gets older. I have no clue what’s appropriate any longer. And I figure it could be used for other events. I’d love to see both dresses/skirts & pants/separates. Thanks so much for your consideration & keep up the great work! XOXO

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the suggestion.
      That is a post that’s been on my “to do” list for literally 2 years. I’m [just a bit of] a procrastinator. Lol.
      But, it’s not one of the “fun” ones, you know.
      Personally, I think everyone should always have an appropriate outfit that actually fits in their closet.
      Unfortunately, most of us end up scrambling for an outfit when we’re grieving. And often end up wearing something we don’t feel comfortable in… it really is good to be prepared. So thank you for the reminder!

      1. Thanks for the reply! I totally agree w/ your assessment of scrambling & not feeling comfortable – that is EXACTLY what happened last time to me. Can’t wait to see what you come up with if you decide to do it! Many thanks!
