Following on from my last fashion-y blog post, 7 of the best autumn jumpers, I bring you … *drumroll* … 7 gorgeous Christmas dresses for curvy women, just in time for the party season. The party season, I should point out, that I don’t really partake in anymore because I’m a single woman that works for herself. But that’s by-the-by, the rest of you may be able to make use of a lovely party dress!


I’ve used websites that I often shop at, and I’ve said I think these dresses would suit a curvier figure like me but obviously, anyone can wear anything they want! But because I have experience of shopping at (most) of the sites, you’ll know that the sizing will be good, true to size and they cater for all sizes, and I wouldn’t share anything with you I wouldn’t buy myself. Also, this isn’t sponsored, just sharing the love a little.


Here we go.


Burgundy Velvet Wrap Dress With Belt – Little Mistress: £49

This first dress is from a website called Little Mistress. And I’ve started with this dress because it’s the one website I’ve never heard of before, but when I Googled ‘party dresses’ this one jumped out at me. Gorgeous burgundy colour, velvet, which is very on-trend but I know it’s not for everyone (but it IS for Christmas!) It comes in a size 16-26, and you get 20% off your first order if you sign up to their newsletter. I already own a very similar non-velvet version, but I think this is beautiful.


Black Lace Sleeve Choker Neck Bodycon Dress – River Island: £55

You can’t beat a black, fitted dress with a touch of lace detail for a Christmas party dress and this dress from River Island is lovely. I think it’s sexy, but modest, ending just below the leg, and shows just a hint of cleavage. If I had a Christmas party to go to, I think this is the dress I’d wear. It comes in sizes 4-18, but currently the size 4 and 18 are out of stock.


Lipsy VIP Sweetheart Neckline Lace Midi Dress – Next: £130

I’m a sucker for lace at Christmas but never wear it any other time of year! This midi-length dress is from Lipsy, but being sold at Next, and has a flattering sweetheart neckline. It’s quite pricey but I would say it’s perfect for a special occasion and wouldn’t go out of fashion so you can bosh it out every year and really get your money’s worth. Available in sizes 4-18.

Zoe V Neck Choker Midi Dress Black – Silk Fred: £35

This stunning dress from Silk Fred is such a good price. It comes in red and black, and if you’re like me, and get a little … hot and sweaty on a night out, the short, frilled sleeves are ideal. It’s just so sexy isn’t it? I’m so tempted to buy this but I should point out that it only comes in sizes 8-16, and I’m not sure if it’s at all stretchy, so bear that in mind.

Dylan Dress Forest – Silk Fred: £79

Wow right? OK, this is a little out of my comfort zone, and maybe yours, and I don’t think the girls would appreciate being quite so on show, but I couldn’t resist including another dress from Silk Fred for the more adventurous among you. The colour would go great with my red hair, it’s available in sizes S/M M/L but y’know, it’s not the most forgiving dress, it’s just soooo pretty.

Velvet Cold Should Wrap Velvet Dress – Booohoo via ASOS:  £25

I find ASOS really hit and miss as an older, curvier woman, and if I do shop there, I tend to go straight to the Curve section, which is where this dress is from. I would perhaps pair this with a metallic belt and matching shoes. Flats knowing me. I think this dress is good for hiding a bigger tummy and is a lot less revealing than the previous dress! Available in sizes 16-24 and it also comes in black.

Long Sleeve Midi Lace Bodycon Dress with Contrast Mesh – ASOS Curve: £32

You may need to bring the Spanx out for this bad boy from ASOS Curve, but it would really accentuate all your curves! I like the little cap sleeve detail on the mesh sleeve because I’m not great with strapless bras and think I could get away with just letting the bra straps on a normal bra drop down slightly. But I’d have to try it on and see if it worked. If you look closely, the material is like an embossed lace and I just think this is a seriously sexy dress. Available in sizes 16-30.


I hope you like what I’ve chosedn. I’ve stuck to a red/black/green Christmas colour scheme but obviously when it comes to fashion, there are no rules. I tend to stick to similar styles that I know suit my body shape, and I’m still learning about what suits me, so wrap styles, midi-length, V-neck/low-cut … but other than that, if I just like the look of something I’ll buy it. Money permitting of course!


Happy shopping … do let me know if you treat yourself to any of these dresses, I’d love to see how lovely you look in them.

  1. Love some of these, but why are the pretty dresses so short? I hate my legs, they are seriously wide due to lymphoma and I dread wearing dresses. Love a calf length personally but they are all above knee or full length. Enjoy your party Kate

    1. Oh there are lots of longer dresses around Hilary, I just chose shorter ones because I rarely wear long ones! So please don’t be discouraged, and if I see any I think you’ll like, I’ll message you. And thank you 🙂

  2. Hello Kate, I like all dresses which you have shared and they are awesome. Your blog can help many girls like skinny to plus size, they can use your tips for styling there self. Thank you. Keep sharing.
