The introduction of new and amazing fashion designs for plus-sized women has come at the right time. With the increase in the incidence of body-shaming and the low-self-esteem, it brings, especially for plus-sized women, the best that could happen to them at this time is for designs that suit their body shapes and unique features to be made available. Thankfully, these designs are nowhere! Today, instead of staying away from events and public functions, plus-sized ladies can now comfortably slay in public.
All over the world today, African designs stand out for the vibrancy of the colours and the amazing patterns that they have. Of all the known African fabrics, Ankara has proved to be one of the most appealing and versatile cloth materials for ladies. There is no limit to the designs and features of dresses made using Ankara fabric… which gives our plus-sized citizens even more options to look fabulous.
This post highlights ten amazing Ankara and African designs for unique, bold and gorgeous Ladies.
1. Ankara Sleeved Tube Gown
This is the kind of outfit that turns the heads of people whenever you walk into a room or step out into open space. This gown perfectly accentuates your curves and body features, making you both the talk of the show and the reference point for beauty. Additionally, other plus-sized ladies will look up to you for inspiration. Expect a handful of people to walk up to you and ask for selfies;-)
2. Ankara Jacket with Shorts
Big is bold, bold is beautiful; that is the message this outfit passes across. Step into the limelight with a nice fitted Ankara jacket and shorts, with a camisole to match. As you please, you may combine this with a pair of Nike sneakers or gladiator sandals. Either way, you’d get all eyes on you.
3. Ankara Baggy Jacket
Have you ever heard of the term, ‘Boss Lady’? If yes, this title is exactly what this outfit confers on you when you put it on. While it may not necessarily emphasize your features as would the sleeved tube gown, it surely gives you an aura of elegance that commands respect.
4. Ankara Wrap Gowns
Not all plus-sized ladies are very confident about their bodies or willing to bare some flesh, so we figured that this would be perfect for those who are still working through their reservations. No drama, no worries, just elegance.
5. Ankara Crop Top
Who said crop tops were for only slim ladies? In case you did not know, plus-sized women can do well with them too! We understand that the tummy line may be an issue, so, you could go with a matching camisole and skirt.
6. Simple V-neck Ankara Gown
If you do not favour off-shoulder gowns or short skirts, the long v-neck gown may be a great option for you. Not only is it comfortable for you to wear, but it also boosts your confidence. You could make do with ruffle sleeves or flair sleeves on this one: whichever one you choose, you’re sure to look beautiful.
7. Sleeveless Ankara Gown with High Slit
This is more of a casual outfit, but depending on the accessories and the style of making the gown, it can serve multiple purposes as well. A sleeveless Ankara gown is simple and comfortable but also versatile but also classy.
8. Ankara Off-shoulder Gown
If you want to pepper dem, get yourself an off-shoulder gown, please. Nothing emphasizes the ‘big, bold and beautiful’ aspect of plus-sized women better than plain off-shoulder gowns. They are also very flexible and can be made into a wide variety of styles to accentuate your elegant look. They are good for social interactions and non-formal occasions. I have come to believe and acknowledge that they will be here with us for a very long time. They are even becoming more appealing to plus-sized women; especially because it helps to emphasize their sexuality and draw attention to themselves.
9. Ankara Maxi Gown
Many ladies have a familiar problem: with a closet filled with nice clothes, they almost always claim to not know what to wear for specific occasions. At best, they confess that they indeed have clothes to wear but that they also find it difficult to make a selection. If you are one of them or you know someone who knows someone that is like that, who is also plus-sized, please give them the almighty recommendation: maxi gowns. You can never go wrong with this.
10. Simple Short Ankara Gown
“Simple is powerful”, a popular designer and dress-maker once said. Many times, the simplest of outfits may be that which you need to bring out the beauty and elegance in you. You never know.
