"You Define Beauty Yourself, Not Society."
The majority of Indian women shoppers fall in the bracket of somewhere between curvy or plus-size these days. While fashion keeps on evolving, fashion catering to plus-size females has remained stagnant or too exclusive, offered to the few who could afford it, which is not the average Indian woman.
We frequently have to compromise our fashion sense due to a lack of diversity, inclusivity, and confidence. It's a lot easier to talk about not being described as a dress size and just being myself than to believe in it when there's such a gap in the fashion industry not catering to a wider plus-size consumer. Thankfully, this issue is being resolved slowly with the market for plus-size women's dresses now experiencing strong growth. One such brand that all my plus-sized beauties need to know about is Xoxo Cherry, they promise fashion inclusivity and positivity, their motto is "Fashion For All" and they deliver.
Are you up for a fashion update? Scroll down to find some plus-size dresses you should own for every occasion!
- Casual Wrap Dress
You simply need to have a wrap dress in your wardrobe. Bright colors and a flattering silhouette are exactly what you need to rock it up for any casual occasion like a coffee date, movie nights, or a full day of shopping. A wrap dress flatters your curves, gives off a nice clean look without being too flashy, and looks fun & flirty. The Xoxo Cherry "Wrap Floral Dress" is everything you want in a wrap dress and more, don't wait to grab it and give it a go, we promise you won't regret it.
- Party Dress
We are all suckers for a Little Black Dress, and bonus points if it's comfortable and you can dance the night away in it. Try the "Subtle Sin Black Dress" by Xoxo Cherry, it's a black off-the-shoulder dress with a pretty floral print that adds appeal without taking away from the dress. You can get dolled up in this dress and party around town without worrying about being uncomfortable or not looking good. Black is a great color for curvy women to accentuate their curves plus the prints, the length and the style all speak of sensuality & confidence you can't help but desire to own.
- Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is an absolute dress to wear when you're feeling easy-breezy and want to look chic without too much effort. Maxi dresses typically are below the knees and a bit above the ankle in length and most of the time, they have a fitting that is in between too baggy and figure-hugging making it the perfect dress to have in your wardrobe if you aren't a fan of fitted dresses. We recommend the "Ditsy Floral Chiffon Long Dress" by Xoxo Cherry, you can use a belt to define your waist or wear jewelry to draw attention from your waistline. The one you can wear to fun date nights & romantic dinners.
- Shirt Dress
Shirt Dresses can never go wrong or out of style if you know how to wear them. You can choose a shirt dress that suits your body shape well because there are so many alternatives available. My preference for my plus-size figure would be a fit and flare to flatter my upper body and flare downwards. It always feels great wearing shirt dresses since it gives us a very attractively feminine silhouette. We drool over the "White and Blue Tie Waist Dress" by Xoxo Cherry because apart from just being cute, it's also versatile and can be worn for fun & work.
- Traditional Indian Dress
Diwali and Durga Puja are just around the corner, have started your puja collection yet? No worries, we're here to tell you what you need to buy. Let's be honest every Indian girl's wardrobe is incomplete without a separate collection of Indian wear. This festive season opt for a dazzling kurta set to set your celebratory mood. Try the "Green and Gold Aranya Kurta Set" by Xoxo Cherry which has stolen our hearts with its color palate, fabric, and design, it's everything you need to usher in the goddess in you.
