Hello Ladies,

I am a plus size (2X) lady looking for a maxi dress that will not make me look larger than I already am. Many places have this dresses with stripes that go horizontally that just make me look bigger! 

Do you have any suggestions on where to find one that will look nice for casual wear that won't break the bank?

Have you tried Lane Bryant? My sister like to shop there and sometimes she gets good deals.

I have no idea when I was looking about a year and a half ago everything I tried on I thought made me look fatter. Lane Bryant, like BL said is a good place, do you have Old Navy where you are how about any stores in your mall? JC Penney has some cute stuff.

 I found one that I love at (believe it or not) Dollar General. They had them on sale for $5 and had some really pretty ones. I also got one when I got ask to do a promotion for Dressbarn and love it as well..

 I love Pyramid Collections. They have some really nice looking stuff and can be purchased in plus sizes.
