Middle age plus size clothing for women is available in a variety of styles that are flattering to all shapes. When shopping for an evening dress, first find your shape then search for your style dress for the evening.

Pear Shape

Pear shape is a term used for women whose bottom and hips are wider than their hip/waist ratio. There are a number of styles that are available to you and numerous ways to tweak the style to make you look amazing in evening wear. Add length by wearing a jacket with shoulder pads, this will create a ā€˜Vā€™ shape down to your stomach giving you a smaller waist.

Apple Shape

Apple shape is a term that describes women whose mid-section is larger than their hips. If this best describes you then vertical/horizontal stripes can be your enemy, as can fabric that is too clingy.

Banana Shape

Banana shape is when your bust, waist and hips all measure the same. If this is your shape, find a dress that can enhance your hips and your bust. The best evening dress option for you may be one that gathers around the hips.
