Plus size kaftans are the key to feeling confident and looking stylish on the beach, by the pool, or even at brunch.  The best thing about plus size kaftans is that they’re versatile: you can wear them anywhere.  What’s more, there isn’t a woman on earth that doesn't look good in one!

Conscious of your tummy?  A kaftan can help with that!  Want to hide flabby upper arms?  The kaftan is the perfect solution.  Kaftans can even help you to feel more confident about your legs.

Here are three reasons why plus size kaftans are perfect for hiding problem areas, and how you should wear yours:

Plus Size Dresses Are Great for Flattering Your Tummy

Self-conscious about your tummy?  Don’t want to showcase your wobbly bits when you’re on the beach?  Then plus size kaftans are the perfect solution.  Because they fit loosely, these plus size dresses will skim over any lumps and bumps, leaving you with a smooth and streamlined silhouette, and no one needs to know what you’re wearing underneath but you!


Look for kaftans with patterns that run vertically down the length of your body to further elongate your shape.  These will make you look both taller and slimmer.  Don’t make the mistake of opting for big patterns or wide stripes just because you have a larger frame: wide stripes and big patterns will actually make you look visibly bigger.  Look for smaller patterns and panels instead.  Our v neck Heart Reef long-length kaftan in pure silk (featured above) is the perfect example of this.

If you’re online shopping for plus size kaftans and dresses then you may be concerned about finding the right fit, particularly if your body is not a conventional size or shape.  To put your mind at rest, and ensure customer satisfaction, all of our plus size kaftans are designed to offer a loose oversized fit, designed for every woman.  Each plus size kaftan has a width of 105cm, ensuring that it floats and flows beautifully around the figures of women of any size.

Plus Size Kaftans Look Fantastic with Leggings

Women that are self-conscious about their legs are always on the lookout for dresses to wear with leggings.  But don’t lock yourself in a plus size summer dresses box when plus size kaftans would work even better.  Kaftans are so much more versatile than you might think.  Not only do they look great worn conventionally on the beach, when you pair them with leggings you can wear them almost anywhere.

If you’re on a cruise, spending the day sightseeing or heading out for brunch then a vibrant patterned kaftan will look chic, stylish and effortless.

Knee length kaftans are flattering on women of all shapes and sizes when worn with or without leggings: their slightly sheer finish will show off the shape of your legs without showing any lumps and bumps.

Fallen in love with a much shorter kaftan?  You don’t have to leave it behind because you are self-conscious about your legs!  Pairing your kaftan with leggings will give you the confidence you need to wear any kaftan you want, whenever you want.

Plus Size Kaftans Will Hide Upper Arms

Finally, one of the problem areas that many women report being self-conscious of during the summer, is their wobbly upper arms.  It’s hard to hide your upper arms and stay cool when the temperatures start rising.  But if you don’t have the toned arms of Madonna and the thought of wearing vest top or swimsuit fills you with dread as a result, then plus size kaftans could provide the perfect solution.

Their loose and structureless sleeves means that plus size kaftans will allow cooling air to circulate around your body, whilst simultaneously hiding the problem areas that you are self-conscious of.

The good news is that, if you do have big arms, then unlike with conventional plus size dresses, you don’t have to worry about whether the sleeves of our kaftans will fit.  Their loose sleeves are wide enough to fit arms of any shape and size, and their excess of material will lend a flattering fit designed to fill even the most self-conscious of woman with confidence.
