Plus Size Maxi Dresses and Evening Dresses for that Special Occasion
Our stunning range of women’s clothing is showcased within our collection of plus size dresses. We are proud to present these beautiful gowns made from designers such as Vetono. These dresses were designed to be comfortable fitting and flatteringly designed.
Founding by Jacqui Green in 2003, Chesca Direct aims to fulfil a hole in the market for premium quality plus size dresses. Our current range is a combination of more than a decade of retailing beautiful garments for women across the United Kingdom. If this is your first time browsing our selection, then feel free to read below for some recommendations on how to choose the right attire for your occasion and personality.
What to look for
Whilst our dresses are designed for women all across the United Kingdom, some of our garments are bold and colourful, whilst others are more neutral. If you are considering what a dress says about you, then hopefully we can help.
If you have never chosen a dress before, you should look for one that is the correct colour, fabric, style and length that you desire. Another important decision is the line you choose, because this will change your contour lines. This can be used to hide, change or accentuate your natural body curves in a way that is most flattering to you. This will depend heavily on why you chose to look for a plus size dress, but most of our women are looking for a dress that accentuates their natural body shape
Plus Size Wedding Dresses
If you are looking for a garment to wear at a wedding, then our selection of dresses can compliment the colour scheme of the day. We also design some gowns to be seasonal, with optional accessories to match the weather. We have a selection of timeless classics that are functional all year round, these are typically less vibrant options to be season neutral.
Choosing a plus size dress for a wedding is easy when you shop with Chesca. We have a glamorous selection of plus size dresses (covering sizes 12 – 24) and are confident that we can fulfil your requirements. Our navy petal trim floral crush pleat dress, for example, helps you to look stylish and elegant. The navy (neutral) colour is fabulous, because it can be accessorised easily by a variety of other colours. Our hyacinth iris floral print layered chiffon dress is popular in the summer months and is sure to help you stand out from the other guests.
Our collection has a range of colours, styles, lengths and lines to suit plus size women attending a wedding. The dress you wear could be one of the most important decisions that you make, and you may already know the types of colour that suits your skin tone.

Plus Size Evening Dresses
An evening dress should suit the purpose for which it is being worn. Whether you are staying in or going out, Chesca’s collection of dresses will help you find one to suit the situation. It is important that you select the right style and material colour, and that the dress is appropriate for the occasion.
For a night on the town, you have the choice regarding the style, colour and length of dress that you wear. If you have an hourglass figure, we suggest that you find a dress that shows off your small waist, but covers your shoulders. For women with a more rectangular figure, a longer plus size maxi dress might be a better option. And if you are lucky enough to have a pear-shaped figure, a dress that draws attention to your neckline is another good option.
Chesca’s collection of dresses include the silver-grey lace trim chiffon layered dress, which gives a classy, sophisticated look whilst showing off some of your legs. Our black squares and stripe mesh trim and linen dress with lining will wow the crowd and – if you are dancing – complements your shapes by flowing with your body! Whatever your style and purpose for buying a plus size evening dress, Chesca have what you need.
Plus Size Maxi Dresses
As we enter the warmer months, a long, flowing maxi dress can help you feel sexy, elegant and comfortable in the hot climates. Once you find one that you feel beautiful and confident wearing, you will want to keep it on all the time! Once more, buying for the right purpose is important; a striking orange colour is great for wearing by the beach, whereas a navy or darker coloured dress is better for work.
Maxi dresses are constantly in fashion, and are great for plus size figures as they help you cover up areas of your body you are less confident displaying. Chesca’s range of dresses allow you to do just that, as they have been designed by curvy women, for curvy women. As a result, Chesca know what you are looking for!
The colour of your dress gives an important statement about who you are, and what you want. Different colours suit different skin tones. For example, if you have a yellow undertone then we recommend you wear warmer colours such as orange, red, deep turquoise and yellow. If you have a cooler tone, then emerald greens, blues and purples look best. One of the most universally attractive colours is turquoise.
Once you know the range of colours that suit you best, you should shop for a colour that matches your attitude. Follow our guide below to check the vibes that your colour might be giving!
Red is a bold, sexual colour to wear so beware of the impact you could have! Purple on the other gives a charming, more formal message. Black oozes elegance and style, whereas white reflects a person who is minimalistic and has more basic tendencies.
Green demonstrates a gentle, peaceful wearer, in contrast to yellow which symbolises someone with more energy and is perhaps a little more ‘girlish.’ Pink is worn by people who demonstrate more femininity, whilst orange is exciting and often individualistic!
