Six Sheer Plus Size Dresses Perfect For Spring

May 11, 2018  |  

For some reason, many still hold on to the archaic thought that curvy girls don’t want to, or can’t, feel sexy in their clothes. When the weather starts getting warmer, you may find yourself scouring through your wardrobe, wondering what you can wear on date night or a night out with your girls.

The sheer-lace trend has been a wardrobe staple for years, coming down the designer runways of Balmain, Valentino, Balenciaga, and more. However, there are a plethora of options at all price points, and yes, for all shapes! While it can still oftentimes feel like a struggle to find things that fit curvy girls (that’s a post that lends itself to a whole conversation), there are possibilities out there if you’re willing to get creative.

Tessa’s sheer taupe dress is perfect for those breezy spring days! To get a similar option in black, you can snap this $35 option from Forever 21, decked with long sleeves and a full bodysuit. For a similar boho vibe, this black $80 Elvi dress can easily be worn as is or paired with jeans and cute heels. And lastly, if you’re really going for a Balenciaga-esque, this $940 Yamamoto dress is sure to make a statement.


Zendaya makes a strong case for spring colors when approaching sheer. Who says you have to mute down your personality to show off your style? If you want to show off your legs, this $119 Embellished mini dress from ASOS is perfect for date night and totally photo-worthy. If you need something with a bit more coverage, this $214 Skater dress can go with everything from heels to sneakers. And if you’re still dipping your toe into the sheer trend and aren’t ready to take the plunge, this $54 dress provides a ton of coverage and just a bit of sheer.

Chloe and Halle show us that the sheer look can even include shorts and crop tops. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! And while you may not necessarily want to strut everything you’ve got, there are cute sets you can snag! If you’re looking for full-length sheer pants, these $59 Rue 107 sheer pants will do just the trick (and from personal experience, are amazing.) To finish the look off,  purchase the $39 crop top to go along with it.

The possibilities of a spring-ready look are endless! With shorts or pants, heels or sneakers, the sky is the limit with what you can wear! What’s your favorite way to wear the sheer-lace trend?
