Dresses that Flatter Curvy Women

Our plus size dresses, your curves – it’s a love story that’s meant to be. Our dresses are the perfect one-and-done outfit, with all the right fits and cuts for any plus size beauty, guaranteed to fit your body shape. Whether you’re after a trendy plus size little black dress for a night out, a unique gown for a special occasion or event, or a casual dress for work or play, Catherines has you covered. There are so many colors and patterns in a variety of dress lengths and cuts to choose from, plus accessories and layering pieces to complete your look.

Finding the Best Plus Size Dress for Your Body

Not sure which style of plus size dress will best flatter your full figure while still capturing your individual style and taste? Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Plus size maxi dresses are the essential layering staple for any time of the year. These dresses elongate and skim over problem areas. Layer on your favorite denim jacket with a statement necklace for the perfect versatile look that will make the maxi dress idea for cooler weather.
  • Wrap dresses highlight your curves while offering a slimming effect at the waist. Try a plunge bra under your wrap dress for a flawless neckline or try a camisole underneath for a more conservative look.
  • A fit and flare dress is a great option if you want to draw the eye to a narrow waist. Looking to flatten and smooth out any bumps under your favorite dress? Add in some shapewear for seamless style and confidence all day long.
  • If you prefer a dress that doesn’t cling, a plus size shift dress is a great choice as it offers structure for a sleek and elegant silhouette.

Plus Size Dresses for Any Occasion

Any occasion is the perfect occasion for a Catherines plus size dress. Shopping for a party dress or a mother of the bride (or groom) outfit? There are special occasion dresses and gowns in a variety of colors, lengths and styles to choose from.
