You know I’m not a label freak. Like you know that, right? But there are some designers that I just love unconditionally: Tadashi Shoji, Halston (from the ’70s), David Meister, and Yojhi Yamamoto come to mind. They do no wrong in my book.
I’m going to focus on David Meister right now because he offers the most exquisite gowns for missy and plus-size women. Take the gilded Floor-Length Gown ($548) above. It’s available in sizes 14-22. I love the universally flattering, empire waist as well as the gathered center that complements and creates a flawless hourglass silhouette. Plus, it’s so reminiscent of Studio 54. And as you know, fashion begins and ends there for me.
Here’s one for my missy sisters with bountiful boobs.
Though this Metallic Gown ($768) might seem impossible to wear, all you need is a pretty Panache plunge bra and you’ll be golden.
I’m a huge fan of Panache because the bras are gorge and they offer so much support for D to KK cups!
