Party-wear for curvy girls | The perfect Christmas Party Little Black Dress

Sunday 9 December 2018

As a curvy girl, it can be tricky to find the perfect little black dress. When you think of an LBD, you think of a tight fitting body con dress – well, that's what I used to think. LBD's are so much more than body contouring dresses – they can be flattering, floaty, sparkly, and chic. They don't need to be figure hugging, they don't need to expose every inch of you – they just need to make you feel and look fabulous..

For years the thought of an LBD was daunting. Having always had a bit of extra chub, plus the feeling of society judging me for the chub on my body – I just thought that an LBD was out of the question. I have never liked body con dresses, and I doubt that even if I was slim I would like them – I personally don't find them appealing, or attractive. I would much rather sport a dress that's floaty, and princess-like – a dress that makes me feel ladylike and delicate. 

When choosing your LBD, it's important that you feel gorgeous. You don't want to feel uncomfortable, self-conscious, and worried that it's going to ride up. You want it to fit like a glove, flatter your figure, and make you feel like a queen.

My LBD of choice this year is this stunning number from Junarose. I never thought I could love a dress as much as I love this dress – it's the perfect style for me, fits me perfectly, the little sparkly accents glimmer in the light, and the sheer detailing with slip underneath makes it dressy enough for parties, yet casual enough for teaming with chunky boots for special events. It's also the perfect length too – just below the knee, and oh so perfect with black or nude tights. 

Curvy girls shouldn't need to compromise. We shouldn't feel as though we can't sport an LBD because most people wear body contouring ones – instead we should stand out from the crowd, be different, be bold, and wear a dress that flatters our individual style, shape, and size.

My stunning Black Mesh Dress from Junarose is a real dream of a dress. It's comfortable, pretty, dainty, floaty, and it makes me feel beautiful – it's everything a little black dress should be, and I'm so happy I now have the perfect LBD!

Little black dresses are worn for so many occasions and events, so it's vital that we have at least one hung in our wardrobes – because we never know when we might need to throw on an LBD and dance the night away!

A little black dress should make you feel fabulous. You should feel delicate, strong, confident, beautiful, and as though you could conquer the world. 

Whether you're dressing this dress up for a night out, or dressing it down for a coffee date – it's the perfect garment for feeling powerful, fabulous, and for power dressing.

It makes the perfect Christmas party LBD too – great for office parties, formal events, and special occasions. Dress it up or down, classy or edgy. This dress is versatile, and I adore it.

How would you style this dress? Would you go for an edgy look, or would you keep it classy? Let me know below!
