Pretty pastels, airy cuts, and floral patterns are just a few of the things that make spring dresses so covetable. For plus-size women, however, it can be hard to find dresses that don’t swallow them up in fabric (nobody wants that!). Fortunately, there are plenty of flattering and fashionable picks out there, from retailers like Torrid, Athleta, and even Amazon. Below, some of the top-rated and most popular this season.
