Saturday I was out running errands and wandered into the store LOFT. Seeing that plus size dresses were $35 I decided to try on a pretty polka dot dress with long sleeves. I didn’t expect the dress to fit that well as most plus size clothing fits my top half but tends to be too big on my lower half. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this dress fit me.

I’m wearing the size 16 plus. I wasn’t looking to add more dresses to my wardrobe at this time but the dress was so pretty that I decided I needed to buy it. And it has long sleeves which I rationalized would be good for winter. The hem of the dress is straight across and not shorter in the front which is an issue I tend to have with off the rack clothing.

The dress is also available in regular sizing. The regular sizing has a waist dart which the plus size version does not. It’s hard to tell if the regular sizing is also bust friendly, but maybe one of you can give this dress a try and report back! Plus LOFT is a store that often has 40% off sales.

My measurements in these pictures are 48.5-39-45.5 and I am 5’7.
