Best plus size dresses to keep you looking and feeling cool all summer.

Summer is well and truly here and the plus size dresses at the moment are looking particularly divine. With many countries lifting their lockdowns and temperature soaring there has never been a better time to start shopping for your plus size summer clothing.

There are some truly gorgeous plus size dresses out at the moment and there really is something for every size and every budget. Floaty, a-line, trapeze dresses are also a major trend this summer and these can often fit larger sizes, even if the label suggests that the brand stops at a 16, if the shape is full, you can even shop smaller sizes to get the dress that you want.

We have hunted down some of our favourite plus size summer dresses to keep you looking and feeling cool this summer.

I love an embroidered dress in the summer and this gorgeous bold yellow boho style dress is also from H&M – I’m moving on from H&M after this. This dress is great for summer now and fantastic for packing on your next holiday too.

This is not a drill! This Evans Boutique dress is in the sale and now just £15 and is available in lots of sizes still! Again it has that lovely boho shape making it super summer friendly and it is now reduced from £48 to £15 – so it is a mega bargain!

Evans is obviously a British heritage and this plus size summer dress is going to be one you turn to time and time again. Great with summer sandals and plimsoles too.

This dress is so so so pretty. I love the colour and a floral dress never goes amiss in the summer months. The v-neck is great for larger busts and the bold pink and red hue is a welcome pop of summer colour. From Simply Be this dress can be dressed up or down with ease. Wear now to cheer yourself up and next summer for the many weddings that your sure to attend.

Tropical prints are always on trend for the summer and this dress also benefits from this season’s must have tie top shoulder detailing. The white base with terracotta print is great for the summer months. Team with tan sandals. The shirred bust is great for shaping and showing off curves too.

Dress, $568, 11 Honore
11 Honore launched their own name collection last month and this shirt dress is a total classic. The swingy skirt, belted waist and chic rolled back sleeve makes this gorgeous cream shirt a timeless investment piece. 11 Honore know their designer brands and we have no doubt the new collection is just as stunning as what you can expect.

Florals are always in for the summer, but this distorted abstract print is a welcome twist on the classic style. The monochromatic colouring with flashes of green is equally fresh and the off the shoulder style… love it! Top tip – swap the waist fabric belt for a slim leather one to highlight your curves.

This tiered full dress with ditzy floral print is on a gorgeous mustard hue. This maxi dress is sure to keep you cool and is perfect for relaxing at summer picnics.

This navy dress is the perfect switch up from loungewear. If you’re struggling to get back into dressing for the real world then this relaxed jersey dress is the piece you’ve been look for. Essentially a t-shirt maxi, this will be your grab and go dress for the season.
