    Every wardrobe needs a little black dress -

    A versatile classic that goes anywhere and pairs well with anything. This style is iconic for a reason Just pull it on and you'll radiate style and sophistication.

    You'll have to work hard to find something that doesn't go with this dress.

    That colorful print jacket? Totally works. That bright, chunky, artsy necklace that doesn't quite work with anything you own? Looks great with this hot little number.  


    A dress this versatile needs to be able to take all the love you can throw at it.

    That's why we make it with a finely ribbed stretch knit fabric that won't fade, pill, or sag. It's machine washable, so you don't have to worry about spilling your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

    This style is perfect for apple shaped women because it skims past your middle and shows off those great legs.

    Size Chart

    Vikki Vi Clothing has a relaxed, drapey fit, so you may need to order a smaller size than usual. The size chart shows the measurements of the unstretched garments. The size that's 1" - 2" larger than your body's measurements will give you the perfect amount of ease.



























    Remember that not every style is designed with your body shape in mind. For example if you're pear-shaped, a dress with straight sides will either be too tight across your hips or too loose across the bust. In that case, A-Line shaped styles will fit your more comfortably.

    If you're unsure which size to order, please contact us and we can advise you. Brands that aren't Vikki Vi follow a different size chart (available on the product page), and we're happy to pop into the warehouse and measure a garment for you if necessary.

    Our blog includes numerous plus size shopping tips and plus size style tips that can help you select garments that you'll love.


    How to Measure Your Body

    Relax and remind yourself that your measurements are neutral bits of information. We know that this can be an emotional experience, but it doesn't have to be. You're just gathering data.

    Waist - Let's start with this one because it's easiest. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist and come on, baby do the twist. That twisting motion moves the measuring tape to your natural waist.

    Bust - Wiggle the measuring tape up so that the back is a few inches above your bra band. You want to measure the largest part of your bust and since you want the measuring tape to be parallel to the floor, wiggle it around until it is.

    Hips - You need to measure the biggest part of your hips - the hard part is figuring out where that is. Every booty is unique, so you may need to measure several spots to find the biggest one. It's probably lower down than you expect.

    Inseam - You may find it easiest to measure a favorite pair of pants to find your inseam measurement. Lay the pants on a flat surface and measure from the crotch to the ankle.

    No shape

    The fit for me wasn't great. It had no shape to it. Fabric was pretty but heavier than I like.

    Hi Samantha,

    Thanks for writing a review. You may prefer our Jersey pieces instead - that fabric is much lighter.
