I am super excited to tell you that one of my favorite retro/vintage-inspired clothing makers, Trashy Diva
, has just come out with some new styles in larger sizes -- up to 24 in two styles, up to 18 in a lot of others. For a while now they've been doing 18s, which I can just barely fit into, but going up to size 24 is totally new. I am hoping they will sell their larger sizes quickly, so they keep making more!
Note: I am in no way affiliated with Trashy Diva, just a happy customer.
What I love about their clothes is that they are made of quality materials -- silk, rayon, cotton -- no crappy polyester. Because of that, they are pricey... but sooooo worth it. They do have sales from time to time, although all their dresses are limited runs, so your size may sell out before it hits the sale.
They have very precise size charts for each style... but it's not always up to date, and unfortunately these new larger sizes are not yet on the chart. I can tell you that I just barely fit into an 18, which is listed as max. 47" bust and max. 36" waist -- I am about a 46" bust and 38" waist. So definitely take those maximum measurements as MAXIMUM, and go up a size if you're in doubt. I just ordered one dress in a 20, and am excited that it may fit better!
Here's a link to their dresses
