I’m such a sucker for dresses. I wear them year-round (yes, even in the winter) and while I love a good maxi dress moment and, occasionally, a short one, I just love midi dresses.
I swear midi dresses flatter curvy bodies like mine the best. They hit at that perfect length and often are constructed with an a-frame shape to hang on curves in all the best places.
With warmer months coming up, I wanted to pull together my favorite curvy midi dresses of the season for you to shop (yes, including some cute plus size midi dresses too!) From minimal to bold to casual to formal – I got you covered!

I adore this red midi dress from Sezane. This exclusive dress is timeless, beautiful and in the most stunning shade of red. You can wear this alone, dressed up, to casual hwy 1 road trips and even to more formal events. This midi dress for curvy bodies has short sleeves to even out our top half and the cutest little bow tie front to make room for the girls.
I love midi dresses for women that have interesting back cutouts, especially for summer when it's hot! Throw on this beautiful and simple white midi dress that has a neat bow in the back. It's by a sustainable clothing company, too! Pair with slides, red lipstick and a handbasket.
I'm not really a fan of bodycon midi dress for curvy bodies like me - I swear they always make me feel pregnant. But I do love that tight hugging material when it's like this dress around the top. Then, the skirts flares out for volume and it's just so dang comfy. The straps are adjustable and this dress is frequently on sale, too.
This embroidered dress is so unique and stunning. The level of detail is insane, and I adore the long sleeves. I would wear this with loafers for brunch or a day exploring a cute European village. If you're looking for a plus size midi dress with sleeves, this is a beautiful option!
This is one of the best plus size midi dresses casual edition. Using shirt dresses are really boxy but curvy gals like me really need a little bit of cinching to highlight our curves! This top comes in a little bit so the bottoms flare out, but it also has a open cut back for something fresh and different.
The Hill House Nap Dress is one of the most popular dresses online. Just pop the hashtag into Instagram and you can view allll the posts from all sorts of body types wear this dress and it just looks great on everyone. It comes in black, floral, and solid colors so you can order your favorite print of this cult classic.
I've never seen a dress like this before. Usually I opt for stripes in just tops, or maybe a careful pair of pants, but this brown and white stripe pattern is timeless yet unique at the same time. I would dress it up with accessories for dinner, but easily dress down with slides and a beach bag for a casual summery look.
Decorated with palms and florals in a sunset color palette, this is a true 70's inspired print. And, it goes up to size 26! I think Never Fully Dressed makes some of the best dang midi dresses for curvy ladies (and well, all sorts of dresses). Always in really unique patterns and designs that are oh-so-fun! Never Fully Dressed usually has a couple sales a year if you wanted to save up your splurging for them on a discounted price (that's what I usually do)
JCrew has been making some dang cute midi plus size dresses lately. I love this chambray one for summer and spring. Pair with hunter boots if it's raining or flats and a headscarf for the backyard BBQ. This style will last for years and years, it's a classic.
in the summer, I love reaching for trapeze dresses like this one from Cupshe. I adore the light green color and the thin straps for hot days. Throw on over your swimsuit or wear as a dress (this would look so cute with a colorful headscarf!)
This is a structured yet delicate dress that flatters curves super well. I love the front zipper and honestly, if you are looking for a curvy dress for a wedding this could be a cool option that you can also wear in other contexts.
I'm a sucker for Farm Rio dresses - they're also so dang colorful and make a huge statement. If you're looking for a curvy midi dress with long sleeves, try this bold statement. And, it uses fibers that generate up to 50% lower emissions and water impact!
I ADORE seeing my fellow curvy ladies in a cut out dress like this one. This white midi dress has heavy weight linen for a luxurious feel that will last for years. Pair with heels and a bold lipstick.
A flowy off the shoulder dress with a high waist to hit you in a great spot and highlights all your curves. This is wonderful in the late spring or summer with heels (and lots of sunscreen!)
I hope this helps you find all the best midi dresses for curvy women!!
