Lane Collection perforated sheath dress
Really comfortable and cute
Bought this dress in a size 20. I'm 5'7, 240 lbs. It's stretchy so its very comfortable. It is very solid fabric, not flimsy at all, so it holds a great tailored shape while still letting me bend and sit comfortably. I am using a body shaper and spanx under it for overall firming up since the dress is stretchy and doesn't do any tight hugging. Its a little loose in the cut at my lower back so it bags there a touch but that just accents my nice small lower back curves. My boyfriend thinks it's sexy but I'm pairing it with sensible pumps for the office. I did try wearing it for him with my stilettos and it take on a whole other feel with those shoes. Could be a really cute alternative cocktail dress. I really like it. I would only change the arms a bit. The multiple straps on my under bodice show a bit because of the arm cuts being a little generous. If I was only wearing my bra, then it wouldn't be an issue.

I see that Lane Bryant is stepping up their game, as the plus size options become more fashionable. This dress is very current...I've seen similar ones made by many designers in several stores. While I was surprised that the "polka dots" are actually formed but an overlay of black with cut outs over a white interior, I think I like this better than the printed versions (I had a similar dress by another designer that was done that way).
This dress wound up being the winner, both for the way it fit and flattered my shape (very large chest and very round and large rear) yet came in at the right point. For too long, plus sized dresses acted like everyone over a size 14 could only wear a sack.
The fit on me was empire...I assumed it that was the cut b/c I'm 5'6 and wear an F cup. It's my favorite and most flattering cut so I'm glad it hits me at that point.
Definitely glad I tried this out to compare, b/c it is the hands down winner and I can stop looking at dresses with this silhouette.
