Fit and flare dresses differ from A-line dresses mainly in the branding.Â They fit at the waist, flare out over the belly and hips, and create a silhouette that covers any parts a wearer might feel insecure about while allowing for varying degrees of retro-dress feel.
For some reason, however, fit and flare dresses are a lot harder to find in plus sizes than are dresses still labeled as A-line. Itâ€™s worth pointing out that most of the A-lines are sold as formalwear, while fit and flare dresses can fit into day-to-day occasions. You can try your own luck on Fat Chic Clothing Search. .
