57 Plus-Sized Fashion Must-Haves For The Ultimate Summer Wardrobe

It's hard to believe that only a few years ago, plus-size fashion was limited to plain patterns, shapeless silhouettes and (let's face it) boring cuts. And though we're still a long way away from having the level of options available to us as standard sizing allots for, this year is promising to be one of the most daring and fashionable ones yet.

With brands and designers throwing away the old mentalities of solid colors and zero fun, we're seeing flawless pieces of experimental glam in this season's fashion, and I couldn't be happier about it! Summer might not officially be here, but I'm ready for it.

As a prelude to the season that's shaping out to be a mega game changer for women sizes 12 and up, I thought it best to round up some of my favorite items so far. From festival-appropriate dresses to funky playsuits to sexy short shorts, here is the ultimate summer wish list for plus-size women ready to take their fashion to unchartered and completely awesome territories.
