Look, I’m not going to lie to you. I don’t have a Valentine’s Day date for this year—TBH, never have. My relationships have never quite lined up to V-Day, so I usually spend the day solo or with other single friends. However, just because I don’t have a date, doesn’t mean I don’t like to look hot AF on the holiday. Whether you have a date this year or not, there’s a sexy plus-size dress with your name on it that you can rock on Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Plus-size clothing shopping can be a serious drag. I was actually talking (OK, ranting) to my mom—bless her heart—the other day about the lack of plus-size options for all ages. This is honestly one of the reasons I really enjoy creating these plus-size shopping guides. Finding genuinely cute, sexy and stylish size-inclusive looks can be exhausting. But in the end, it’s totally worth it to find clothing that fits plus-size bodies well—and I get to really expand my wishlists.
Growing up in a society that seems to value thinness over any sort of actual redeeming quality, dating—and more specifically, Valentine’s Day—can be a sensitive subject. So many plus-size women are made to feel less-than because of their weight, especially when it comes to romance. Many brands are finally making an effort to include women who wear plus-sizes in their marketing campaigns and offer extended sizing, and it’s a good start. It can be difficult to have confidence in your body when you rarely see anyone who looks like you given basic respect or a leading role in society. (Shoutout to the movie Dumplin’ on Netflix, which is a great step in the right direction.) Everyone deserves to feel hot as hell.
So, for this Valentine’s Day, I rounded up 21 sexy plus-size dresses you can shop right now. I hope they make you feel hot AF—whether you have a date or not—because you totally are.
