Dresses-from-Bonmarche and Fifty plus

by Tina Boomerina (Christina Gregoire)

Yes, you can be chubby and sexy. Find great plus size cruise wear, like formal dresses and cocktail dresses. Make sure to show off your goods to best effect.  

I love cruising. It’s the easiest way to see different cities without doing any work. Well, here are some sexy plus-size cruise wear outfits for formal nights.  Hey, you might want to look sexy on your cruise because:

  • It’s your honeymoon.
  • It’s your anniversary.
  • You are just sick and tired of wearing long underwear and down jackets all through the horrid winter.

First of all, you should check to see if your cruise ship has true formal nights because some lines don’t. Go to cruisecritic.com and look for answers on their fabulous forums. If you want to get dressed up because you have a fabulous dress, just do it. I swear that no one will kick you out if you’re the only girl dressed to the nines. Actually, you might get better service, so don’t fret if you want to wear a formal gown and you’re not sure about it.

Most women seem to wear black on formal night, but black is not a requirement. You can wear a long gown, a tea-length dressy frock, a nice suit, or a two-piece pant ensemble. And, I believe that a floral dress is fine for formal nights on most tropical cruises as long as you look suitably festive and your dress is not too casual.

Sexy Black Evening Gowns: Plus Size

I think that East Coast women (on Caribbean cruises) get more dressed up than women on any other cruise I’ve sailed. And, that includes two upscale cruises to the Mediterranean and the Baltic. A lot of the formality has to do with your cruise line and your particular ship.

Almost every woman will be in black. If you don't want to blend in with the crowd, just wear a different color.

      Having a little trouble with a few photos since we updated to new wordpress. Can you show me the dress on Pinterest? I don't think it's from this article.

    I would love to know where to buy the royal blue side draped dress w/ rhinestone accent pictured in your Sexy Plus Size Cruise Wear: Cocktail & Formal Dresses. I think it would make a lovely informal mother of the bride dress

      Sorry, but that dress is from 2012, when I wrote this article. Lots of women ask about that dress. You should contact the website for Marisota (in the UK) and tell them to bring that dress back. Or, contact SimplyBe.com, which sells Marisota in the US.
