True, many summer dresses are strapless or lingerie strapped. Not so good for women who wear large cup bras. True Bravisssimo has strapless bras in cup sizes up to H, but over that, you may well want beautiful summer dresses you can wear with a bra. I am often on the look out for these and found an excellent plus size dresses by Baby Phat and OneStopPlus which you can see now at the top of our dresses page that will flatter both large busted and full figure women! Even large busted plus size women like me!
This OneStopPlus maxi has twenty-six 4.5 Star reviews so far and comes in 4 colors in sizes 12W to 32W!
One women has worn it with a tank underneath, which I guess means you could avoid the too much cleavage look, or perhaps even wear it as a jumper. Another women has this dress in 3 of its four colors and finds it coordinates very well, but it is a bit large in the bust. I did not read all the reviews, this is a cotton gauze dress, so it should be cool and one reviewer says it never needs ironing!
Along the lines of a sleep / lounge chemise I posted here, (5/8/09), handy for bust support, and now a real steal, is the terry-grommet swimsuit coverup dress below:
For a long time I have been eyeing up this swimsuit cover up, mostly for use after a bath or shower in the summer. What can I say, we do not all have central air conditioning! Now its in the clearance section at Swimsuits for All for just $13, down from $25, still available in several colors in sizes 1XL to 3XL, or 16W to 26W.
Back to dresses, there are lots to choose from in plus size dresses whether you need a bra, with or with out straps! If you are shopping Silhouettes, some of there very new, beautiful dresses have available dates in June, July and August. Fortunately, they have a check availability link at each item’s description.
In addition, I noticed yesterday that some of the Apple Bottoms dresses I had on our dresses page, when clicked on said they were out of stock. Then when I looked into Apple Bottom’s plus size dresses, there they were, in stock. As far as I can tell, this just happened with Apple Bottoms. If you click on anything from them and you get an out of stock page, if you really are interested in it, follow up by checking through their menu, as it may not be out of stock after all!
