Now that spring has officially sprung, it's high time you started thinking about how you're going to spend your summer. If your plans include hitting up a festival or two, plus size festival dresses will likely be on your wish list if you're a curvaceous, bodacious babe.
There are a ton of clothes you'll probably want to wear to a festival. Nowadays, thanks to the likes of stylish fests like Coachella, festivals aren't just about the music anymore; they're a chance to show off your personality or embrace festival specific fashions you might not try IRL. Although it's certainly possible that every garment in your closet would look rad worn to a festival, chances are, they're not all going to strike the balance between being ridiculously awesome to look at and practical to wear. Take for instance, high heeled shoes. Unless you have those special heel protectors that stop you from sinking into the grass and mud or the entire festival is set indoors, you will most definitely struggle in your heels. Rompers and dungarees are super cute too, but come the early hours of the morning when you're in a makeshift toilet cubicle, hovering over a pit of putrid human waste that reminds you of Labyrinth's Bog of Eternal Stench, you're going to wish you wore something more accessible.
Enter festival dresses that'll help you float around your fest feeling footloose and fancy free. So here are some plus size festival dresses so you can look and feel free-spirited.
