If you’re searching for a new holiday dress but you’re not sure where to look, I’ve got you covered.

My favorite place for dresses that are a little more unique is always ASOS. A bonus is that you usually don’t see a million people in the exact same dress as you! There is a huge selection, but you can search by dress length and sleeve length, depending on your modesty preference, so as not to overwhelm you. They have an ASOS curve section with styles up to size 28 as well. Their shipping policies make returning the pieces that don’t work a breeze.


Another great option for dresses is Anthropologie. They also recently expanded their size range to include plus sizes. Anthropologie is a bit more hit or miss in my opinion, but it’s always worth a shot. I love to look at their sale rack, especially when the sales have additional percentages off. I’ve scored some amazing deals that way.

Eloquii is an awesome option for beautiful dresses at decent price points in sizes 14-28. They have a big selection of midi dresses and dresses with sleeves, so you can often find modest dresses with minimal tailoring.

I’ve found beautiful dresses at both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. Nordstrom has a really big selection and I love that their website is clear and user friendly. As for Nordstrom Rack, it’s definitely more hit or miss but I’ve found some beautiful Ted Baker, Kate Spade, and DVF dresses at really great prices.

Kesiva v’chasimah tova and I hope you all have a wonderful year ahead of you!
