Plus size dresses - NOT polyester
6

LyraSilvertongueBelacqua · 21/08/2020 19:16

Hi all,
I'm after places to look for some dresses for work. Size 18-20 and NOT polyester.

I find so many nice dresses and when I get to the description they are polyester, which just makes me a sweaty mess.

Can you think of any gems I may have missed?

Thanks!

I found www.navabi.com a while back. It’s not cheap, but it’s also not the usual large polyester flowers that plus size women seem to be expected to wear

Do you need smart or casual

I have a few dresses from here, they're all silk, cotton or bamboo. The XL would be perfect for you. They're not ultra cheap but good value. One of the ones I have is plain light navy and my husband complimented me in it. He's not done that for over 30 years.

@ClamDango probably more on the casual end of the spectrum! I'm a teacher so need to look presentable but be comfortable.

I will check out the recommendations, thank you!

I like some of the styles of Popsy dresses but cannot fathom why they are all polyester.
