Here in Vancouver we are more than familiar with the old saying “April showers bring forth May flowers,” living in a rain forest on the West Coast….here are a few beautiful floral dresses perfect for those of you who wear ‘plus’ sizes to look sunny and bright even when it’s pouring outside.

This dress is SO perfect as the long sleeves will keep you wearing it into cooler seasons, and for now is perfect for warmer days and cooler nights–you can go out and not have to worry about quite so many layers. The dress is great with a nude heel as shown, and the many different colours give you so many options of which colour to bring out when you wear it.

Love the painterly quality of this floral print. It looks like a watercolour masterpiece that should be on display in a museum!
One thing about florals is that more often than not they err on the side of sweet, dainty, and slightly more on the youthful side. The Shania Painterly Print Dress above dashes all those common floral pitfalls–you’re ready for a night out of fun with this bright, curve-hugging number.

The muted colours on the black background is so polished, and so versatile! With a wicker hand bag and flats it’s good enough for a weekend brunch, with patent pumps and bright accessories you could be ready for a wedding. We also love the nod to vintage with this neckline-very Sophia Loren.

For those of you who loathe vintage, this pick is for you. The scuba fabric, the subtle overlay of the geometric shapes, and zipper keep this flowery dress in modern territory.
