Marks & Spencer has introduced an online exclusive range of womenswear specifically to cater for women of sizes 20 – 28.

The Plus winter story collection, which includes dresses, tops, skirts, trousers, suits, cardigans and coats, has been designed specifically to fit and flatter the plus sized woman.

This season is all about occasion and luxury which is reflected in the feature fabrics, which include satin, velvet and sequins, and the bold floral prints. With accents of colour grounded by black, the range offers on-trend colours and prints which are teamed with classic cuts.

Danielle Hill, dresses buyer at M&S, explains “There is always the classic black dress but choosing one of the more daring, eye-catching prints can speak volumes about fashion sense and can make you stand out from the crowd. Red is a key colour featured in prints and solid colours for that wintery feel.”

Speaking of the inspiration behind the styles, she adds; “Dresses that flare away from the body can balance out a larger upper torso” - The Scoop Neck Abstract Print Front Pleat Dress and the Scoop Neck Ombre Print Dress are a great option if you are top heavy.

“For a classy look, styles that finish around the knee help lengthen the body and subtle ruching at the waist can hide away problem areas” – The black Slash Neck Sequin Embellished Dress is a classic knee length with a ruched waist and an added touch of sparkle!

“Empire line dresses gives the illusion of raising the waist creating length to the body” – The Sleeveless Pleated Jersey Dress has a flattering V-shaped neckline too.

The collection is available to buy now exclusively online at Prices range from just £9.50 for a cotton top to £89 for a high-end party dress.
