Love Squared Plus Size Dress, $24 at Macy’s

The more structured the dress is, the better it will look on. Avoid too much volume on the bottom and instead stick to dresses that brush against your natural curves to accentuate your figure. Opt for empire waists that will make you look like your legs are longer. And if your dress doesn’t have one, then add a belt and create one.
