Your plus size dresses search may become more
specific as you see plus size evening dresses
on various sites.
Once you arrive on a site, next it’s time to
see what sizes are available. Most plus size
sites will indicate what their size ranges are
on the very first page.
Check the top, side, or bottom margins for the
size chart. Some sites will have their misses and
plus size charts separate. Others will identify
their plus sizes as women sizes.
In some cases you may have to go to the plus size
site’s Site Map to find the size chart.
The size chart is one of the most unnoticeable
features on a site. It should probably be
the other way around. If a web site has many
different sizes of dresses, the size chart
should stand out. If a store can accommodate the

The size chart may give an indication of what
type of dresses are best for certain shapes.
On some sites, you’re able to search on the fashion
site by size, shape, fabric, or color.
Some size charts will depict different
shapes with fruits and vegetables. (i.e. pear,
onion, etc.) These sites normally will tell
you which outfits goes best on what shape.
Lets say you find a plus size dress that you like, the

In some cases you may want to write this information
Some plus sizes will run either larger or smaller than
what we’re used to buying in the stores. When you
identify which plus or women sizes are available, the
next thing to do is go to the size chart and take
your measurements with a tape measure. The size
chart will tell you how to measure yourself in most cases.
Match your chest, waist, and hip measurements to the
size chart. If you find that you’re larger in a particular
area, you may have to go up one size.
Rule of thumb, always go up a size if you’re between sizes.
I ordered a plus size evening dress online two months ago
and had to go up one size due the my hips not matching
what was on the size chart. The dress fit perfectly due to
going up one size!
If we really think about it, people have been ordering
like this for years. We actually take the same steps for
catalog ordering and for finding the right size for a
Well ladies, hope this takes some of the fear out of shopping online.
It’s actually easier. There’s no traffic, no one bumps you in the aisles, the
kids aren’t lost under the racks, and the fitting room being full isn’t
a factor. Enjoy the less stressful shopping experience!
