When the invitation calls for black tie, nothing is more appropriate than to wear ball gowns. A ball gown is the most formal of plus size evening dresses a woman can wear. Sewn from luxurious fabrics like taffeta and satin or delicate fabrics like tulle, ball gowns feature full skirts that reach to the ankles or more often the floor. The bodice of ball gowns typically is embellished with beading, sequins or embroidery and fashioned like a corset. Many plus size ball gowns come with a matching bolero, jacket, shrug or shawl. To add to the elegance, women wear opera-length gloves that reach between their elbow and shoulder.

Fashion tip: formal gowns can easily overwhelm you if you’re short and petite. Best to stick with formal gowns and evening dresses designed in A-lines to flatter your figure.
