36 Plus Size Wedding Guest Dresses {with Sleeves}

Tired of that shrug life?  I hear you.  I’m so sick of wearing shrugs, cardigans, jackets, and wraps to cover up.  Although I am working on loving my upper arms just as they are, I’m still not comfortable showing them off.  I’m a sleeve-lover in a sleeveless world!  But I know I’m not alone!  So as spring wedding season approaches us, I took some time, well a lot of time, actually, to find some cute dresses with sleeves!

This is a collection of thirty six plus size dresses with sleeves.  These are, in my opinion, the best of what is currently out there for us sleeve-lovers.  There are dresses for day weddings and evening weddings, in a variety of sizes, and a variety of prices.

If you would like to see more formal dresses, long dresses, and gowns with sleeves, please let me know in the comments and I will create a post if there is interest.

And be sure to check out my latest collection of plus size wedding guest dresses!

  1. Thank you for sharing my love of sleeves on dresses – at least elbow length or preferably 3/4 length. I am really over the sleeveless look, and especially over the strapless look on wedding gowns. I’m old fashioned and prefer to have my shoulders and arms covered, especially in a church wedding. On the hottest of hot days, you will not find me wearing even a tank top, unless it’s covered by another shirt.

    These wedding guest dresses are all very nice, classy and appropriate. Thank you, Alexa.

  2. Alexa! I found your blog through Pinterest a while back and just had to finally speak up. Love your style and really really LOVE this post! Thanks!!!

  3. Do you have any ideas for a spring wedding guest dress but maxi length? I’d prefer some sleeve but don’t want to look like a sac either :/. Thanks, love your blog and Pinterest!!

  4. I adore your blog and am an avid follower. I recently bought a dress with sleeves from eShakti. They do tons of styles and will customize any dress to add sleeves, change the neckline or length. Bonus, they all have pockets, who doesn’t love a pocket!!

    1. Hi Linda,
      Thank you! I love eShakti too! I should include them in posts more. In the past I have had complaints because the models aren’t “plus size” (in the photos). But they are so great, I should feature them more anyway!

  5. I thought I was the only person in the world who was sick and tired of shrugs and sleeveless dresses! Thank you for this post!

  6. Love, love this post! It describes me very well. I’m looking for an idea for a summer wedding as a guest. Possibly maxi dress with sleeves.

  7. Hi Alexa,

    I’m interested in the 4th dress down on the left, with the floral bottom. When I click on the picture it doesn’t take me anywhere. It says not valid. Do you know where this dress is available?

    Thank you so much!

  8. Hi! Any chance you know where the floral high waisted skirt and black off the shoulder top is from? The link doesn’t work ๐Ÿ™
