It’s the Slip Dress’s World, and We’re All Just Living in It

It’s no secret: I love ’90s fashion. I was born in the early ’90s, so I never really got to wear much of it—which is why I’m so happy it’s back in style. One of the most iconic pieces of the 1990s was the slip dress. It’s slinky, sexy, fun and actually available in plus-sizes. Although plus-size slip dresses aren’t quite as abundant as straight-sized slip dresses are (Who’s surprised?), there are still plenty of gorgeous options for curvy folks.

It’s always endlessly frustrating when an article of clothing is trendy, but there are only a few options in plus sizes. Everyone should have access to cute trends, and it’s upsetting when people who wear plus-sizes don’t. It’s 2021 and we all deserve to wear a damn slip dress! When the trend first started showing up in straight sizes, I immediately went on the hunt for what felt like an impossible treasure: plus-size slip dresses.

I looked at brand after brand, and felt like I was getting nowhere. Why couldn’t anyone make a slip dress in my size?! But, after scouring the Internet for what felt like days, I managed to find a few plus-size slip dresses worth shopping. A year later, the selection is much larger—and there are so many pieces you definitely need in your closet.

Yes, the selection is smaller than I’d like, but it’s a start. As the plus-size clothing community grows, and more brands introduce extended sizes into their collections, it’s important to remember that there’s still a long way to go. I shouldn’t have to dig through the dredges of the web to find plus-size slip dresses, when there are hundreds (probably thousands) available in straight sizes. If you know anyone who works in the fashion industry, remind them that everyone deserves to wear what’s trending and have it available in their size. End of story.

Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you. We’re connected to an affiliate revenue program, which means we might make a small commission when you buy products through our shopping guides. This in no way affects the pieces we choose to feature, and it never will. (Confused? We’d love to answer any questions you have about this. Email us at beunrulyinfo@gmail.com!)
