After the 20s boyish look passed, the classy 1930s introduced us to form-fitting, tea length dresses that made women’s bodies look feminine. 1930s Art Deco plus sizes dresses were elegant chiffon, Georgette, and silk gowns cut to hug natural curves in the most flattering ways. Tops had modest high necklines and loose flowing shoulders with a cape, or long sleeves for long vertical lines.
1930s plus size evening dresses had Old Hollywood glamour with their floor-length gowns and matching jackets. Meanwhile, early 1930s day dress looks were similar to the current trend of 1970s dresses with flutter sleeves, ruffles, and uneven hemlines. Late 30s tea dresses were in the 1940s style with knee-length swing skirts, puff sleeves, and a belted waist.
