There’s something about vintage dresses that makes me feel like I can conquer it all. I guess it has to do with the history of women of the past. Women back then hardly had any right, but that didn’t stop them from standing for their rights and from being heard.

Thanks to women of the past, today, our world is filled with many talented and extraordinary women.

The revolution in women history somehow reminds me of the story of plus-size women. Similar to them, being curvy and plus-size wasn’t always accepted.

Now, because of beautiful and brave women like Queen Latifah and Ashley Graham, the USA is slowly changing the ways they see plus-size women. In fact, most have accepted us as beautiful and as sexy.

Well haven’t you heard? PLUS IS THE NEW SEXY.


Despite the connections between the history of vintage women and plus-size women would make it ideal to own a vintage fashion, there are other reasons that I believe every plus-size women should include vintage in their wardrobes:

  • Vintage dresses are known for its feminine yet striking styles. It has the power to give a feminine flair to a woman with a boyish body.
  • It’s one of the few styles that is both flirty and daring.
  • Its slimming materials and designs are great for plus-size women or anyone with unwanted fat. It helps them hide it.
  • Vintage dresses can be flattering to every body types and shapes.
  • The fact that Its styles are made to hug the body in all the right place, vintage dresses help give or/and accentuate the woman’s curves.


  • Though this is a very fashionable style, unfortunately there aren’t many places that still make or sell them.
  • It can be expensive, especially when it’s sold where good materials are used.
