The Iconic ’90s Slip Dress Is Back—and Available in Plus Sizes

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 (to an extent). Although plus-size slip dresses aren’t floating around everywhere, there are still several options for curvy folks.

I always get so frustrated when an article of clothing is super trendy, but there are, like, five 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 2020 and I want to wear a damn slip dress! So, I went on the hunt for what felt like an impossible treasure. 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.

Yes, the selection is small, 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 49 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.
