Asymmetrical hem, tie-dye and Empire waist are big sellers
DressLily, RoseWholesale and Nastydress all reported that the sales of asymmetrical hem and Empire waist dresses continue to be strong for plus-sizes. The Empire waist is particularly popular with swimwear and warm-weather fashions. With the arrival of summer, asymmetrical hems using thin fabrics will be the trend.

RoseWholesale has also seen an increase in tie-dyed fashion wear in plus-sizes.

Halter, Empire waist and symmetrical hem are big in swimwear
According to Nastydress, halter, Empire waist and symmetrical hem are the preferred styles for plus-size swimwear. In fact, halter swimwear accounted for nearly 40 percent of the total plus-size swimwear sales.

Tankinis (tank tops and bikini bottoms) were also very popular with Nastydress's plus-size customers.

Empire waist swimwear accounted for about 22 percent of plus-size sales and Empire waist swimsuits followed with 10 percent.

Halter symmetrical-hem tankinis were big sellers on all three sites.

Online shoppers are cautioned to select the correct size when placing an order. “Asian sizes generally smaller than the US and UK,” said Shulin Lee, Operations Director for RoseWholesale. “In addition, different vendors have different size standards. When shopping for plus-size clothing online, customers should carefully check every size chart and make sure to select the correct size.”
