Hi everyone! I’m hoping someone can help me with some suggestions for a plus-sized eggplant colored cocktail dress with some sort of sleeve. I’ve checked all the usual department stores, ASOS, Lane Bryant, Overstock, 6pm, Zappos, etc. and my sister just can’t seem to find something that she’d feel beautiful and comfortable wearing for my spring wedding. I never realized how difficult it was for her to shop for something like a cocktail dress and my heart breaks for her. Thanks so much for any help!

Have you looked at Alfred Angelo’s bridemaids collections? They have some lovely dresses and will definitely carry plus-sizes!

That is so unfortunate she feels that way. I also agree to check out Alfred Angelo website, they do carry plus sized and my BMs found something that they all were comfortable with.
Also this blog has a few good resources for plus-size retailers:
Its canadian but, most of thinks should still be pretty relevant (or even easier to order from). Good luck!

Check out David’s Bridal, they’re plum colour is eggplant, and their BM dresses run up to a size 24 (some a 28) and are much more realistic when it comes to size.

This one if from target and they go up to size 28w. They have a lof of cute and affordable options. The only thing is they don’t carry their bridesmaids dresses in store only online.

Oh wow, you guys have given me so many great ideas!
Sharebear, I found a bunch of great things from various ideas on that blog you mentioned. I’m going to send the ideas AND the blog to my sis for just some general day-to-day ideas.
It’s nice just knowing that there are some options out there that aren’t so matronly-looking. 🙂

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It had sleeves was comfy and flattering!
