This post is all about Plus Size Dresses for Wedding Guests this Fall and Winter.

One of the most popular questions I get is about what to plus size dresses for weddings and special events! Finding a great dress can be hard so I decided to try out a few options from Amazon.

These dresses can be delivered quickly and are all under $50! Below, you’ll find a bunch of great options for weddings or other special events that are currently available.

Before we get started, I’ll share my stats so you know how to compare for your own body. I’m a size 20-22 normally and I’m 5’10”. I wear a size 40DDD in my bras.

Plus Size Dresses: Off the Shoulder

This dress is SO pretty and so comfortable. It has a stretchy back panel so it fits my waist really well. 10/10 recommend this dress. Fits true to size and was the perfect length for me.

Plus Size Dresses: Velvet

This might be my personal favorite and I can’t believe this is from amazon! The velvet is very pretty and super stretchy. I’d probably throw on a pair of spanx for this dress, just to make it a little more smooth! I’m wearing the size 22 and the length is good, but I definitely can’t wear heels so keep that in mind if you are also tall. This dress is also a dupe for this gorgeous, but pricey, option from BHLDN.

Plus Size Dresses: Body Con

This dress is pretty sexy if you ask me! I’m not normally a body con girl but this one is pretty flattering. The v-neck is pretty low so I’d probably throw a safety pin in it so I don’t show my bra. I’m wearing an xx-large plus and it fits great.

Plus Size Dresses: Casual

This dress is so pretty! It is definitely a bit more covered up, and a little bit more casual but I still think it would be perfect for a fall or winter wedding! The texture of the fabric makes it look way more expensive and I think you could easily wear it again! I’m wearing a size 22 and it’s perfect.

Plus Size Dresses: V-Neck

This is one of the favorites I tried! This dress is SO flattering and really shows off your shape, while elongating your body with the v-neck. I think the teal color is gorgeous but there are a few other options too. I’m wearing a 22 and its a bit snug so I’d suggest sizing up.

Plus Size Dresses: Ruffle

This last dress is so cute and unique. I think this would be perfect for a cocktail attire wedding. I would personally add a pair of Spanx to it and a great pair of fun heels. I’m wearing the size 22 and it fits true to size.

Tips for Shopping for Plus Size Formal Dress

Finding the right formal dress can be hard, especially if you are looking in plus size where there are fewer options.

  • I recommend ordering a bunch and trying them on at home.
  • For one event, I suggest ordering at least 8 options you like but the more the better!
  • Start early so you can find the perfect option AND have plenty of time to find shoes, accessories, and proper undergarments!
