Plus Size House Dresses for Women Over 50
I don’t know about you, but on a hot summer day I like to slip into a comfortable plus size house dress. Women over 50 have earned the privilege of relaxing in comfort, without having to conform to the latest trends and confining fashions.
In a hurry?
I like to stay cool and comfortable, without worrying if someone comes to the door. A house dress, or patio dress as some call them, gives me the freedom I need to stay cool while doing my housework, gardening or just relaxing on the front porch. I don’t need to worry about what they neighbors think, because I am modest and attractive.
A house dress is so practical! They often come at an affordable price. They aren’t trendy, so young women are not rushing to buy them. But, this style has stood the test of time.
The dress in the picture above comes in 24 different prints, and in an array of sizes. These plus size house dresses are available in sizes 1X to 6X. It also comes in regular sizes 10 to 14, and in petite sizes 6P to 16P.
These dresses are made of a cotton/polyester blend, so they are easy to wash. Although the instructions say you can machine wash and dry, I just throw mine in the washing machine. When they finish their cycle, I put them on plastic hangers and put them on the clothesline. They dry quickly and I just move them to the closet. I find this easier than fooling with the dryer, and they always end up looking lovely.
Plus Size Summer Dresses for Women Over 50
I like this dress. It reminds me of the house dresses women used to wear when I was growing up. A few years ago I began wishing for one or two of those neat and tidy dresses to wear around the house. It took a while, but this one comes close to the old-fashioned house dress I remember from my childhood.
This dress comes in five floral or patchwork prints, and four checkered prints. The checks are lilac (or purple), blue, mint (or green), and pink. You can also get lilac, blue or pink patchwork, or lavender or pink floral. A zipper comes midway down the front of the dress, and it has two patch pockets.
The sizes available are Misses sizes 6-8 to 14-16, and Plus sizes 1X (16-18W) to 4X (28 to 30W). It seems to run pretty true to size.
The dress is very cool and comfortable, and is easy to care for. Just machine wash and dry!
I am planning to order a couple of these dresses to wear in the heat of the summer. We don’t have air conditioning at our house. The afternoons in July and August are very hot and very humid. It’s the kind of weather where you just want to sit in the shade with a glass of iced tea and try to catch a breeze. This dress will be perfect for those sweltering weeks! I’ll let you know how I like it!
