Curvy Spring Dress Picks

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you're all doing well...it's continued to be sicky central at our house so I've been off the grid and DEFINITELY not wearing anything worth posting. That hasn't stopped me from scouring the internet for the cutest curvy dresses for spring though....here are some of my faves!

I love the bold colour and flowy feel of this ASOS Curve dress! Comes in UK sizes 20-26 (North American sizes 16-22).

Did you know Ruche has a Curvy Plus section? The pieces come in 1X-3X and they are super chic AND super affordable! Love the pretty pink and versatile shape of this dress.

I order my jeans and the occasional top and dress from American Eagle online. They carry a lot of extended sizes online that are not available in store. Jeans go up to 18 Long and tops/dresses up to XXL. I love the soft grey floral print and adjustable side ties on this dress!

At Modcloth, you can search by size and this fun and frilly take on the LBD comes in sizes 1X, 2X and 3X! Plus, if you have any doubt about sizing, you can ask a Modstylist to take flat measurements of the garment you're thinking of buying! How's that for service? (I really wish every online shop offered flat measurements.)

Old Navy has been knocking my socks off this spring with their adorable prints! I've picked up several silky poly tops to mix and match with skinny jeans and my fave cardis. The dresses are fab too, I really love this pretty navy maxi dress...fits a supportive bra perfectly and hits you at all the right spots! Goes up to a size XXL.

Dorothy Perkins is a UK retailer and I recently made my first online purchase...so I'll let you know how it goes.  Shipping is about $11-12, so not free but not crazy. They have super cute clothes in curvy sizes that are miles away from frumpy (up to UK size 22/US size 18)! I love the stylish stripes and universally flattering shape of this sleeveless dress.

Forever 21 is one of my dress faves....as they are always under $30 each! Some Forever 21 stores carry the Plus line and some don't. Winnipeg does - yay! Calgary doesn't - boo! But you can order online on via the Canadian web site with free shipping on orders of $60 and returns by store or mail.  They carry sizes 1X-3X (which unfortunatley is only like a 14/16/18). This is such a nice flattering shape and I love the lazer cutouts on top!

Have you started spring shopping yet friends? What's on your wishlist?


  1. Love all of your choices! I've ordered a number of things from the Ruche curvy plus section and haven't been disappointed yet. Same with Dorothy Perkins!

  2. Cute. I might need to check some of these out...

    (I already have the grey floral one - it's ADORABLE!)

  3. Would you believe that I love Dorothy Perkins and New Look but I've never even thought of ordering online. That's such a good idea! I find that Canadian retailers don't really have a lot of everyday dresses. I'm going to check it out for this summer for sure.

  4. Great suggestions! The Ruche and Dorothy Perkins stuff looks awesome!

  5. That little striped dress is the bee's knees!

  6. Thanks for the post! I love your collections of curvy clothing. Those are so attractive.
