we-found-the-best-plus-size-dresses-for-summer-on-amazon

Finding a great summer dress is no easy feat — and the task can be even more difficult if you’re shopping for plus size styles. While some stores have limited size options to choose from, mega-retailers like Amazon can have hundreds of pages of plus size clothing to pore over — an arduous task for anyone suffering from decision fatigue or finger-scroll strain. The good news? We’ve found the best of the best Amazon plus size dresses out there, from comfortable options to wear to work to showstoppers perfect for your BFF’s summer wedding.

Before you click “add to cart,” make sure you check the seller’s size chart to ensure you don’t follow up your glorious unboxing with a case of buyer’s remorse. In many cases, the same retailer can have sizing differences between styles, so it’s important to check the size chart for each style you’re considering and make sure your measurements are aligned.

Next, check the description of how it is meant to fit. Oversize, bodycon, fitted? You may want to size up or down depending on how you want the dress to drape on your body. Also peep the reviews — many include pictures from real-life buyers that will tell you more than the sometimes headless model shots.

Now that you have these tips and tricks under your belt, take a look at some of the best summer dresses that are available right now on Amazon, many up to a 5X. Can anyone say overnight shipping?!
