Cocktail Couture for Curvy Girls


We're bombarded with them from November on... catalogs and email blasts that boast the perfect LBD for the Holidays. That's "Little Black Dress" if you're not hip to the lingo. Frankly, we're not always HIP to the idea. Let's face it, it's not every year that we are ready for the dress to be little. We defy you to find more than a couple of friends who could gracefully pull off some of these dresses we see being worn by size ZERO models, who oh by the way are 19-year-olds, no kids, and the boobs to prove it.

Some of us need straps that will hide a bra with actual support. Others among us want a glamorous evening look that will forgive a specific figure flaw. With that in mind, Chris & Lisa are here to scoop some gorgeous new styles for YOUR shape.

boston proper rosetteLook breathtakingly lovely without showing a lot of leg in Boston Proper's Crushed Rose Maxi Dress. We love the neckline and rosettes that trim the straps. $169.00.

max  cleoIf you have the kind of "tummy troubles" that a Rolaids can't fix, we've got the perfect pick. Those of us with a "Mommy Midsection" will look like a million-bucks in styles like Max & Cleo's Taffeta Mock Two Piece Dress. Available at Nordstrom for $148.

ap beaded silk chiffonWe also love the Adrianna Papell Beaded Silk Chiffon at Nordstrom. $178 in Silver.

avenue silverSaving the BEST for last, our two favorite dresses of the season are both Plus Size picks from Avenue.
