WHERE CAN I FIND SPECIAL OCCASION DRESSES IN MY SIZE?

Never wonder what you'll wear to that important event again! At Woman Within, you'll find an array of beautiful, plus size special occasion dresses designed to fit, flatter, and appeal to a variety of shapes, sizes, and tastes. Ranging from 10 to 44 (S to 6X), our extensive selection of sizes was created for women with curves.

We understand the desire to feel confident when you step out in your new dress, which is why we emphasize figure-flattering cuts while providing you with the choice to show as much or as little as you want.

For a more conservative look, choose a maxi dress with a high neckline, or one of our dress and jacket sets that provide arm coverage. If you're looking for something that shows off your legs or bust, then check out our shorter, knee-grazing styles with V-neck lines. The empire cuts featured on several of our dresses really help to define the waistline and accentuate curves.

SHOULD PLUS SIZE WOMEN WEAR DRESSES WITH PATTERNS AND PRINTS?

We aren't all about neutral solids in plus size fashion, and you don't have to be either. By offering numerous different colors, textures, patterns, and prints in our special occasion dresses, we let you control the outcome. Rock that bold hue, slip on an eye-catching floral print, and know that you're wearing a dress designed with you in mind. If you’re not in the mood for a print or all-over color, then let your accessories do the talking!

WHAT TYPES OF EVENTS CALL FOR SPECIAL OCCASION DRESSES?

Contrary to popular belief, special occasion dresses don't have to collect dust in the back of your closet. Instead, get creative with where and how you wear them. We know that there are a few events throughout the year that call for plus size special occasion dresses—weddings, showers, cocktail parties, holiday parties, galas, and fundraisers—but your fancy dress can also be elsewhere, too. Wear your dress on a fun date night where you both get fancy, take it with you on a cruise, or make it workplace-ready by adding a black blazer to your outfit.

DO YOU CARRY SHOES AND ACCESSORIES TO MATCH MY DRESS?

Woman Within carries all the accessories you need to complete your look. We have a variety of medium, wide, and extra wide width dress sandals, heels, and shoes that are perfect for coordinating with our selection of plus size special occasion dresses.

If you're wearing a little black dress or neutral outfit, opt for a pair of statement dress shoes that have a pop of color—red is always a good choice—or a shoe that features a metallic exterior in silver, gold, or rose gold.

And why not treat yourself to a new necklace? Layer two or more necklaces for a unique take on accessorizing. And don’t forget the handbag. We have elegant clutches and cross-body bags that are ideal for evening wear.
