With the 2020’s now officially here, I really wanted to do a plus size flapper photoshoot! I love a good plus size flapper dress, whether it’s for Halloween, New Year’s Eve – or just a party.

I had some trouble finding a high quality flapper dress in plus sizes, but it was a little difficult! Then I found Unique Vintage. In this post, I’ve reviewed 2 Great Gatsby inspired dresses from Unique Vintage – Art Deco lovers, eat your heart out!

Chafing Real Talk

These high quality plus size flapper dresses in blue and red have gold sequins and beads, and they didn’t chafe at all!

My Measurements & Sizing

Figuring out which size to order can be hard, so I’ve shared my measurements below. I ordered my dresses in a 3X.

  • Bust: 51″
  • Waist: 46″
  • Hips: 52″

The size chart puts my waist outside of the 3X, but these dresses fit just fine! These dresses stop at a 3X, but Unique Vintage carries up to a 6X.

Planning the Photoshoot

I’m learning to up my Creative Director skills, and this was the first photoshoot where I rented furniture!

Shoutout the Utah Vintage Rentals for providing awesome gold furniture and Wild Willow Studio. (New Years supplies from Zurcher’s!)

Plus Size Burgundy & Gold Sequin Lina Fringe Flapper Dress ($98 USD)

I loved this dress, especially the shoulder details!

The under layer is burgundy stretch knit and has a delicate black mesh overlay with twinkling gold sequins and beading lend a dash of starlight and enchantment to your silhouette.

The gentle scalloped hemline drips with long black fringe that sways past your knees (I’m 5’4″).

This dress has a lot of sparkle, and I felt so cute in it!

This stunning plus size 1920s style frock from Unique Vintage is a gorgeous deco affair in fabulous flapper design. You’ll be ready to sip cocktails and champagne in The Laurentine! The outer layer is a lightweight black mesh that overlays a blue knit lining for comfortable frolics through the evening.

The neckline is v-neck, and the dress gives a fitted silhouette and scalloped hemline with dripping black fringe. Zip up the side and go turn a head or ten, darling.
