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.
