A Good Question: Black Dress for "Average" Woman?

September 13, 2007 by Bryn
shefinds |

Reader Question: I love the Michael Stars "Chloe" dress but I am not a size 1 or 2… more like a 12! Does anyone know of any brand that makes a similar dress that would fit an average girl like me?

Answer: We'll skip the obvious criticisms of a product line that only offers clothing in sizes 1 and 2, and move on to a more size-savvy website: nordstrom.com. The site offers an array of beautiful, form-hugging black v-neck dresses for us "average" women. Plus, you can search by size, silhouette or desired look — a much more friendly way to shop, wouldn't you agree? Below are a few of our favorite figure-flattering styles.

First, this Norma Kamali Shirtdress ($295) is a beautiful option if you're drawn to the long, v-neck dress. Seam detailing, long sleeves and a beautiful glossy belt complete the look for you: just throw on some black, peep-toe Mary Jane's and you're good to go. 

 

If you're looking specifically for something of the sleeveless variety, this Karen Kane V-Neck Dress ($98) is an excellent option. A pinched bodice, side ruching and slightly flared skirt form the ultimate curve hugging combination. Plus, shoulder detailing draws attention upwards, perfect for those who would rather show off a pair of toned shoulders than a less than taut tummy. Pair this with a gold cuff for a great office look.

For a more exact replica, try this Jones New York V-Neck Matte Jersey Halter Dress ($124). It features a twist-front bodice, ruched sides, open back and a soft, fluid skirt. Pair this will delicate earings and strappy silver sandals and you're cocktail party ready.
