When you’re plus-size, dressing yourself is no easy matter. I order a lot of things online, or, I shop when I go home to the US. Recently, I’ve been on the hunt for more wrap dresses that are super comfortable, breathable, but still mega-professional and by brands that I TRUST. Here are my favorite top 5 that you can currently get shipped to Singapore!
I own a TON of Rachel Pally dresses. Every one of them makes me feel either powerful, like a goddess, or just super well put-together. My favorite? Buying her longer dresses and then taking them to be tailored so that they’re short and way more appropriate for the Singapore weather!
Kiyonna is another great brand that you can trust. A little less expensive than Rachel Pally, this brand is really great if you’re a bit on the busty side. It definitely works well for those of us who are not as well-endowed in that area but may have a bit of a tummy, too! This one comes in a ton of colors, as well. So click through to check them out (black, magenta, navy, orchid and deep red).
I really like MYNT 1972 for more casual pieces that you’re really not afraid to sweat in at brunch. They often have dresses that are on sale because the brand is not as well known! It’s an American brand that also makes fantastic, high quality jackets and heavy coats that are stylish for plus size, too. In case you’re going somewhere cold!
Calvin Klein is a LONG-trusted favorite of mine. I have some Calvin Klein dresses that I have owned for over 6 years that still get worn in this heat and still get dry cleaned bi-weekly. I just LOVE this print, too. Great for a Chinese New Year look (I might have to order it myself!).
Papaya is a brand that I have NOT tried before, but it’s super inexpensive* at $22-26 USD. If something has a ton of reviews and people say it fits “as expected” on Amazon, then I have been braving it and actually trying some things out. This is a really pretty floral print, and it comes in up to size XXXL. Always check the size chart on the listing to double confirm (chope!) that the sizing will fit you. And check the return policy.
