Plus Size Formal Gowns for Prom and Evening
Cheap plus size prom dresses
Do you need a dress for prom or some other formal occasion? If you’re a plus size, chances are that you’re about ready to tear your hair out after shopping at boutiques and department stores. Unfortunately, many of these cater to the girls who wear sizes one, three, and five or six. What’s a plus size lady to do – just sit home and avoid such fancy functions altogether?
NO! I’m a plus size woman, myself. And I’ve never let that stop me from going where I wanted to go and from looking fashionable when I wanted to. I tried the boutique and department store routes. My skinny-mini girlfriends would be oohing and ahing over slinky little prom dresses that would make them look absolutely stunning, but when it came to me, the shop owner would bring out some hideous matronly gown that looked like it was made by Omar the tentmaker. That is IF the store had anything in my size, at all.
