But excitement usually turns into frustrations for many plus size women, because they often cannot find anything that fits that truly is stylish and makes them feel stunning on that special occasion.

Fortunately this plus size fashion industry has evolved over the past few years, with more designers now opening up to the plus size market. Many full figured women have also realized that turning to online shopping opens up a lot of options for them, as there are a variety of online only plus size stores.

Today I want to go through what I think are the 5 stores plus size women should go to when shopping for a cocktail dress or evening gown. All the stores and designs in this list carry a wide selection, which will sure help make the dress hunting experience for plus size women a more positive and enjoyable one.

1. Kiyonna - Up To Size 32 Kiyonna is one of the leading designers in plus size fashion, offering customers high quality garments in classic yet trendy silhouettes at reasonable prices.
