Chesca was the brainchild of a size 20 woman, Jacqui Green, who simply became frustrated trying to find dresses that were fashionable yet designed with larger women in mind. Each and every one of these luxury designer plus size women’s dresses on the Chesca site and in Chesca stores around the nation was handpicked for both quality and style.
Choosing the Right Length
There are two things that should always be considered when trying to determine what length dress is right for you. Heavier, curvy women are just as beautiful as their thinner counterparts and like those other women, you want to emphasise your best features. For women with fuller calves, luxury designer plus size women’s dresses in a mid-calf length like the Powder Pink & Green Hibiscus Print Crush Pleat Dress would look fantastic.
Is This Colour Right for You?
Naturally you will be choosing a colour that complements your complexion, eyes and hair, but often solids work best, no matter what colour. Big busted women do well with solids on top and prints or stripes on the bottom whilst those with rounder hips do better to wear two-tone dresses with darker solids on the skirt area with brighter colours or prints on top.
Lines that Flatter Fuller Figures
One of the most common mistakes that fuller-figured women make is to choose lines that are all wrong for their body type. As in choices of colour, the line of your dress can enhance your figure to give you the best look for your size and shape. Whether you choose a fitted top with a flowing skirt or a blousy top with a fitted bottom, the line of the dress is equally important to length and colour.
Choosing the right dress for your body type is made easy with Chesca because luxury designer plus size women’s dresses were chosen by curvy women for curvy women. Whether you are a size 20 or a size 26, there is a dress on Chesca that was designed with you in mind.
