Although only 11 years old, After Dark Plus has already built an enviable reputation as London’s premier specialist retailer for Plus Size Evening Dresses.

How often have you walked into a, so called, specialist evening wear shop, full of expectation, expecting to see a good selection of glamorous long evening dresses in your size only to find that you are presented with, at best, a couple of frumpy designs at the back end of a rail of young sexy dresses in smaller sizes?

At After Dark Plus, disappointment should be a thing of the past.

With a continually changing stock of glamorous Plus Size evening dresses, you will find a comprehensive selection of designs to try on and select from and at prices to fit most budgets.
