More and more brands are designing awesome plus size clothing, not to mention the incredible plus size-only brands out there. All of these fabulous options, along with the approaching year end holiday, amount to one thing: f*cking fabulous plus size New Year's Eve tops and dresses.

Anyone can be stylish at any size, and thankfully, the fashion industry is starting to recognize that. Curvy model Ashley Graham is a pioneer for other other plus size women, even trying to rebrand the term as curve sizing, and petitioning to be the first curvy Victoria's Secret angel. Christian Siriano, from Project Runway fame, was one of the first major designers to start using multiple plus sized models in his fashion week runway shows.

The message is clear — we, the people, want to see more representations of the vast spectrum of sizes that real women embody. The past few years have been a giant leap in progress for womankind, and 2017 continues to improve, particularly in fashion. Let's celebrate the strides we've made and get festive AF for New Year's Eve.
