All About Sydney's Closet

All About Sydney's Closet

What makes Sydney’s Closet, designer of plus size special occasion dresses, a very special brand?

To start, you need to know that at Sydney’s Closetcurvy defines our fashion DNA.

It’s all we do as a brand! We’re dedicated exclusively to designing glamorous plus-size special occasion dresses for curvy teens and women to look fabulous and feel great when they dress up to make memories.

Our founder, Phyllis Brasch Librach, launched the niche apparel company after she failed to find a Prom frock that rocked for her teen-age daughter.

In fact, when the Internet was in its infancy Phyllis pioneered the idea of selling plus-size formal dresses online for Prom, Bridal, Evening, Cocktail, Pageant and parties.

Now, almost two decades later, she leads Sydney’s Closet, an international plus-size online clothing store powerhouse of five plus- size dress brands committed to sizing up glamor for curvy teens and women.

But she never forgets her mission to take the tears out of shopping for her daughter and millions more women who want to look glamorous when they celebrate life’s most special moments with family and friends. 

At Sydney’s we keep our successful philosophy simple and straightforward. Shopping for a plus-size special occasion dress should be easy, fun and rewarding for women ages 16 to 60 who fit sizes 14 to 40.

Is Sydney’s Closet
just plus size?

Yes! Our commitment to curves means we are devoted and dedicated to designing just plus size dresses. Sorry, our sensational styles won’t come in Sizes 2 to 12 or what Phyllis loves to call “minus sizes”.

At Sydney’s Closet we never forget that the pickings were pitifully slim when Phyllis and her daughter had a nightmare shopping for a Prom dress.

Our razor-sharp focus makes us experts at designing elegant plus-size Prom, Wedding, Evening and Cocktail dresses that fit and flatter full figures. That’s all we do and we’re proud to do it very well.

What size range of plus size dresses does Sydney’s Closet offer?

When you shop at Sydney’s Closet online or at one of our Authorized Retailers you can delight in discovering one of the most inclusive size ranges of any plus size dress brand

Sydney’s Closet size range starts with size 14, that’s the smallest plus size we design. Our size range ends at a size 40, our largest plus size. And we offer every size in between: 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, and 38.

We’re very proud to be the rare fashion brand who creates fancy floor-length evening, wedding gowns, short party dresses for dates, cocktails, dinner, holiday parties, wedding guests and Homecoming.
