Plus Size Prom Dress Feature

Plus Size Prom Dress: The Nerd Edition

Ah, prom. A rite of passage in high school that either gives you the heebie jeebies or gives you immense joy. I fell into the latter category. I loved, loved, loved my prom. (I had a junior and senior prom) because it meant getting to wear FORMAL GOWNS.

Today, girls don’t wear gowns like they used to. They generally wear what I would say are cocktail dresses. But what’s a plus size nerd supposed to do when they want to rep’ their fandom?

I’ve put together a slew of plus size prom dress ideas for geeks. Some of these are fairly literal representations of certain characters, others are just inspired by them.

Here and there I also included ideas for accessories, mostly from Etsy, because you can findย anything on Etsy.

Please note: No matter what the model in the pictures looks like, each of these dresses is available in a plus size or custom-made to your measurements.

Busy? Pin this to your Pinterest board for later.

    I loveeeee this!!! I of course have my Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad sequin dress from Torrid that I can wear for more “fancy occasions”, but I also have a TARDIS “swing dress” that’s like heavy brocade material and super fancy from the plus sized collection at Hot Topic, and I called it my TARDIS Disney Princess dress, cuz I legit feel like a Disney Princess in it, haha!!! <3 <3 <3 I haven't had a chance to wear that one out to an event yet, because it's like SUPER DUPER fancy, though, like legit damn near a FULL OUT ball gown, though I DID wear it this past Halloween season as just a costume type thing, for a cosplay of my version of TARDIS Disney Princess… LMFAOOOO!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ <3 <3 <3 I also have a more "Wonder Woman" ensemble of an outfit that I can wear to events and such, including a delicate handmade tiara that I got from Etsy, and a dress, and a choice of like three badass pairs of shoes (over the knee red boots, ankle red boots, or strappy blue heels, all pretty fancy themselves)… LMFAOOOO!!! So, for the moment, those are my three CURRENT "geeky" fancy outfits that I have on hand, that I can think of right off the bat that are pretty much "ready made" already!!! <3 <3 <3

      Wow! You sound like you’ve got just about every formal even covered! I’d love to see that ballgown! My Belle gown from Torrid is kinda like that. ๐Ÿ™‚
