I feel like I could seduce an entire room in this dress. It’s silky soft material drapes over every curve and flows with every stride I take. My shoulders peek out, and the fact that this dress ties at the side and is “barely there,” makes me feel dangerously sexy. For me, fashion has always been kind of like drug. I can’t explain the feeling I get when I slip on a garment that makes me feel a rush of confidence. I turned to fashion when I was younger and getting bullied at school every day. I wore clothes as a shield and a shell that would protect me from harsh words—mostly about my curvy, bigger body. Fashion gave me this escape, but it also helped me come to terms with my body, even though clothes didn’t fit me like they fit my peers in middle and high school.
And today, fashion is still more than just a form of expression for me. My outfits set the foundation for my day and the tone for my attitude. And this dress makes me feel strikingly beautiful and powerful. I found the Plus Black Satin Frill Detail Wrap Maxi Dress from PrettyLittleThing and I knew I needed it for the times where I want a sexy black dress, but not a little one. I was a little skeptical when I first got it because the only thing keeping the dress closed was two strings that tie together on the left side of the dress. And you know, satin, is a slippery material. But I must say, The dress held up, and stayed on during a windy day. This is definitely I dress I will be turning to when I need to channel some extra confidence.
Satin wrap dresses are having a moment right now, so I have included my favorite plus size satin wrap dresses in the shop widget below. I hope you find one you love!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 20 in the Plus Black Satin Frill Detail Wrap Maxi Dress, which is one size larger than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I ordered the dress in a size 18 at first, but it was too small.
