Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! As a petite plus size fashionista, it has been extremely difficult to fit into fashion and find clothing made for my body. But I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!

I found the secret to feeling like a goddess, and it's this dress. As soon as I slipped this maxi dress on, I felt like the baddest chick on the planet! It's off the shoulder, it has high slits, and the tropical floral print is divine. I wore this dress out while shopping, and it was definitely a head turner. One of the best feelings to me is knowing that I have a piece of clothing in my closet that can transform my mood, confidence, and day as soon as I put it on. And for me, this dress just became that garment.

I found this Night Moves dress on Fashion Nova, and although it comes in plus sizes, it also comes in straight sizes, too! So all of my non-plus size baddies can also wear this dress! I love the material, which is made up of polyester and spandex. It's breathable, but it's also heavier than your typical fabric so it doesn't blow around too much in the wind. The dress also comes with an inner shorts lining to provide some extra coverage since the double slits are so high up. A downside to the inner shorts lining is that you essentially have to get naked to use the bathroom—similarly to if you were wearing a romper—but I would get naked in the bathroom 50 times a day for this dress, honestly. HAH!

If you want to unleash your inner goddess, use the code "NATALIEXCRAIG" for 15% off of your next Fashion Nova purchase! If you are totally feeling these tropical floral vibes, I have put together a list of tropical maxi dresses that you can shop below! Enjoy!

SIZING INFO: I'm wearing a size 2X in this dress, which is my usual size. The dress runs true to size and is very stretchy!
