Frequently Asked Questions

What size is considered plus size?

Plus size differs with countries. While it starts at 12 in the US, 16 is considered the starting plus size in Australia (though it is the equivalent of US size 12). In the UK, 16 and above is considered plus size.

What type of dress is best for plus size?

A-line dresses look the best on plus size and curvy women. Fabrics like rayon, polyester, georgette, cotton, and chiffon look great in these sizes. The idea is to let the fabric flow and not stick to your body, clump up, or seem ill-fitted.
