This is an ideal design for a plus size woman. The dress is not revealing and the fabric is perfect for this design. I used a thick stretched fabric which helps hold the body firmly. The second half wrap front is there to cover the tummy size. The dress is elegant and you can wear it to a dinner party or a wedding. I made the dress for my mom and it fits my sister perfectly. My mom is a size 22 and my sister is a size 24.
