Easter Clean: My Top 5 Plus-Size Easter Dress Picks and more

Easter is quickly approaching and I’m excited just for how far plus-size fashion has come. I remember growing up as a chubby girl how much of a hassle it was finding the perfect Easter dress. Remember in the 90’s about the only place a plus-size teenager could find a cute dress was Lane Bryant, and you would look like an old woman because fashion was not as trendy for bigger women in the 90’s. I’m thankful for the old Lane Bryant, who knows what I would have had on if it wasn’t for them. So one of my traditions I hold on to is getting my Easter dress from Lane Bryant. Yep, I’m 33 and every dress or outfit for Easter has come from Lane Bryant. So I wanted to offer some inspiration to my curvies who are still contemplating on what to wear for Easter.

So let’s talk about what’s popping and on trend this spring. Floral is here, the white shirt dress is a hit this spring, bell sleeves are giving us 70’s vibes, and maxis are a staple. So whether you are looking for something casual, classy, or just pretty. You know, “I got you” (excuse the southern drawl).

Here are my personal top 5 dress picks for your perfect plus-size Easter.

Belted Fit & Flare Dress– I love the way Kim (@naturallyfashionable) styled this dress. This dress has pockets. The tie around waist gives any shape the great hourglass illusion. The quality is amazing. I stopped by Lane Bryant to see this beauty in person. I did not purchase but I went with something very similar, I hope you are following me on IG so you can see.

Tie Waist White Shirtdress– You know rumors out that white makes you look bigger. My take on that is “Wear what you want”. This dress is simple, sweet, versatile, and has a “Wow” about it.

Belted Maxi Surplice Dress- My love affair for this maxi is insane. It’s sometimes hard to find a maxi that is light, airy, and chic. This dress screams refreshing and daytime vibes.

Cold Shoulder Mock Neck Dress– Eloquii always nails it with everything. It’s my fave in plus-size online retailers. If you have not shopped their online store you are seriously missing out. I love the cut of this dress and not to mention it’s a dose of everything. Cold shoulder lovers, turtle neck lovers, mock neck lovers, and bold color lovers this is your perfect dress. The cold shoulder trend is one I’m obsessed with at the time too. So bold and daring.

Scuba Wiggle Dress in Floral Print–  I had to give inspiration to all of my curvy pastor’s wives, out there in internet land that desire to be stylish and moderate. If you do not know my husband is a pastor and has been for almost 5 years now. This dress is so feminine and modest. It’s the perfect dress for church. Soft floral is lady like and womanly.

If you are a mom of a plus-sized beauty and you are having trouble finding a gorgeous dress in junior sizes here is a list of online stores that will definitely cater to your little princess without spending a fortune. Forever 21, gslovesme, Asos Curve, Target, Torrid, Maurices, Ashley Stewart, Rue21, and Charlotte Russe.
