Plus size maternity cocktail dresses
The cocktail dress emerged in the 1920s after World War 2 when the idea of the working woman began to take hold. Today cocktail parties have changed a bit, but the dresses are basically following the same rules. It should be a fun and flirty dress (or skirt with a top) preferably in a finer material. The dress should be knee-length and have some kind of sleeve. And the neckline can be a bit party bold. Like back in the day, it’s also a perfect opportunity to wear a nice hat.
Two of my favorite online stores for maternity dresses are Tiffany Rose and Nordstrom. They don’t have special plus size collections but some of their dresses are available in size 14-16 (Nordstrom has bigger sizes as well). They are generally top notch. High quality, trendy and/or classic elegant designs and maternity friendly.
The dresses are wonderful, but you might find that the prices are not. Tiffany Rise and Nordstrom both have a little more expensive plus size maternity cocktail dresses, but they’re generally worth every penny.
