  1. As a plus size woman, I like dresses with sleeves. Preferably 3/4 sleeves. Also woman who is past the age of 40 rarely wants her arms exposed. I love vintage inspired 1940’s and 1950’s clothing. I would buy more if they had sleeves. How do your sizes run? I have bought dresses in the past (Hell Kitty)? an d their clothing tends to run very small. I had to buy a size 3x to fit. I am typically a 1x or 16W.

    • Full sleeve repro 40s and 50s styles are hard to find. I recommend going to eshakti where you can take any dress and change the sleeve length and skirt length. They have a full range of sizes too. I’ll be linking to some new styles from them to this page soon.
