What is plus size?

What is considered plus size clothing can vary widely between plus size dress stores, often starting from an Australian size 12 or 14 upwards. If you are a plus-sized woman, you may have struggled in the past to find designer dresses that are right for you. Thankfully, fashion designers are now realising the importance of making a wider selection of designer labels available at plus size dress shops. The range of trendy plus size clothes is expanding, and more outfits are being designed to flatter the size and shape of curvier women. At The Volte, we want to give every woman the opportunity to celebrate their beauty no matter what their age, shape or size and so we have brought together a collection of beautiful dresses that can be rented out and delivered across Australia.

How to choose plus size outfits?

Women come in all shapes and sizes, and whether you are a size 6 or a size 22, you want to look and feel your best when you step outside your front door. To do this, you’ll want to find clothing that is flattering and helps you to accentuate your best features while camouflaging any concerns. When plus-size shopping for dresses, there are several factors to consider including the type of fabric, the style and design of the dress and the colour or pattern that it comes in.

Whatever colour and design you choose for your outfit, it’s important to select a dress that fits you well. If you choose a plus size dress in a size that is too big for you, it will end up looking sloppy and a dress that is too small will be uncomfortable to wear. The style of plus fashion design that will suit you best will depend largely on your body shape, not your size. For example, a dress with an empire waistline that gathers just below your bust instead of at your waistline will emphasise your upper body rather than your lower body, so this style of dress can be particularly flattering for those who have triangle-shaped bodies and are bigger at the bottom. Or you can maximise your curves and create an hourglass shape by wearing a wrap dress or A-line dress that nips you in at the waist. Straight dresses can be a flattering cut if your shoulders are wider or the same width as your waist. If your shoulders are narrower than your hips, an off-the-shoulder dress can be good for balancing out the look.

When choosing colours, black is very slimming, and a little black dress can be worn for all sorts of occasions! On the other hand, bright colours can be a great way to show off your best assets, for example, you might want to choose an outfit with a pattern on the top and a solid colour on the bottom to draw attention to the upper half of your body. You just need to be careful to choose a colour that complements your complexion. You can experiment with different colours and see what works best for you. If you are wondering how to style plus size dresses, why not add some fashionable accessories. You might want to choose a bold piece of jewellery, especially if you have chosen a black or plain coloured dress. Or you can splash out on a pair of statement shoes. You’ll want to make sure the overall look reflects your personality.

Fashion should definitely not be exclusive, and at The Volte we want to help every woman to look and feel their best, whatever the season or occasion. With many plus size outfits available for hire made by a variety of designer brands including Cooper Street, Adrianna Pappell, Sheike, Mossman, Chi and Jadore, accessing on-trend plus size dresses online has never been easier. Rather than traipsing through plus size clothing shops, you can browse online and find several options in one place.

At The Volte, rather than buying a plus-size designer dress from a plus-size store that you’ll only wear occasionally (or in some cases only once), we give you the option to rent a dress from lenders across Australia. In most cases, you can choose to hire your plus size dress for a hire period of 4 or 8 days, and we deliver Australia-wide including SydneyMelbourne,AdelaideBrisbane and Perth, as well as regional areas. If you want to see exactly what the dress or gown will look like on you before you hire it and make sure that it fits you perfectly, many of the lenders at The Volte offer try-on services for a small fee. If you compare our prices with the cost of buying your designer outfit from online shops for plus size, you’ll see how much money you’ll save. And you’ll look amazing too.
