*2023* 23 looks! Plus size christening outfits (Dos & Donts)

Whether you are the mother of the baby or godmother or guest, christening outfits can be overwhelming.

The tricky point is we all know we should look decent and respectful but how formal actually it required? It really varies.

While some require formal wear like an empire neckline maxi dress, some are completely okay with a summery little white dress and sandals look.

That said, always check the invitation for the dress code.

But no worries ladies, in this article, I’ve collected 8 safe yet amazingly flattering christening outfit ideas if you wonder what to wear to a baptism for the plus-size queens!

I’m sure you will love the tips.

Symbolizing purity, hope, peace, and spirituality, pastel hues and christening look just go hand in hand.

For the baptism day, it’s time to dig out your lavender maxi dress for a poised, feminine look.

If you worry these light hues will exaggerate your figure, always wear your shoes and hats with similar (but not necessarily has to be identical) shades.

That will balance off the boldness and elongate you as a whole.

Despite pastel hues, dresses with subtle sequin designs and lovely floral prints are always failproof choices as well.

For the girls who want to feel dreamy that day, may I suggest a romantic maxi tulle dress? Just perfect.


The truth is, we are all perfect imperfections.

You want to learn these outfit hacks ONLY if you feel like it but are not pressured by others. Remember, we never have the need to “fix” our bodies!

You don’t have to be pretty like HER, you can be pretty like YOU.

And believe it or not, there’s still NOT ENOUGH plus-size content around Pinterest and other places on the internet …at all.

So ladies, before reading the tips, please help pin the pin below & support plus-size ladies ♥!

Can you look modest and tasteful at a baptism at the same time? A timeless peplum dress can never go wrong.

Featuring the slightly flared strip of fabric around the waist, this just hides our food baby impeccably and accentuates the hourglass figure.

To maximize the effect, adding a colour contrasting belt is always welcomed.

To avoid looking like formal workwear, I would say play with the light hues and patterns.

Team a white peplum top with a vibrant floral dress, it just exudes a romantic and refreshing sensibility.

These days, the christening ceremony comes in different styles and forms and you can certainly dress more on the casual side.

If you want to look stylish with minimal effort, a one-piece jumpsuit just never goes wrong.

Featuring the V-neckline and high waist cinching design, it just naturally contours our body and makes us look taller and slimmer visually.

To dress up this look, give it an upgrade with pearl earrings and a dainty Y-necklace.

Finish off the look with a pair of nude sandals, you’ll be bound to feel fabulous.

The last tip pays attention to the fabric of the jumpsuit.

You want to avoid that super thin and see-through texture as that will immediately downgrade your look and appear tacky.

So ladies, always opt for the mid-range when it comes to jumpsuits as you get what you pay for.

Some ladies may wonder if can we wear jeans for christening. That really depends on what kinds of jeans you are asking for.

If that’s the high street cut-off jeans or blue denim straight-leg pants, that’s a no.

That said, a pair of cream or white jeans can be a good alternative as white just naturally looks more posh and dressy.

If you team it with appropriate tops and shoes, jeans in this case are totally acceptable.

And of course, shorts are the nono. Despite jeans, let’s not forget paper bag shorts will do the trick as well.

With the generous space for the belly area, it’s just perfect for curvy babes.

Again, opt for classy shades like beige and you’ll be all fine!

Whether that’s baking hot summer or wintertime, we all know how unreasonably cold some churches can be.

That’s why decent outerwear always plays a major role in your christening look.

For a put-together style, a tweed jacket just looks modest yet in style.

Together with the pearl earrings, they just bring out the best in each other.

My other favorite is the trench coat as the A-line silhouette always flatters plus-size girls.

If you want to wash out the formalness, reach for the light pastel hues for a happy balance.

As for breathable outwear, a lightweight kimono jacket just seals the deal.

If you want a billowy silhouette without an extra layer of warmth, that’s the one.

As the mother of the baby for christening, what you are looking for in a dress is slightly different from others as you may need to breastfeed your baby from time to time.

That said, a flowy comfy dress with a convenient neckline just comes in handy.

For a gentle yet feminine look, a dusty pink ruffle-trimmed midi wrap dress with a self-tie belt just exudes a dash of darling to your look.

Or else, an off-shoulder dress can be equally flattering and convenient for breastfeeding as well.

Accentuating the neckline just makes our face appear to be smaller. So to all the beautiful mamas out there, remember you can definitely enjoy practicality and aesthetic at the same time!

This is so random… BUT

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen

Needless to say, reaching for a nice pair of comfy shoes is a no-brainer.

I know some of you may be so tempted to dust off your rhinestone gold stiletto, but that can appear to be too sharp for the baptism.

Plus, they are not comfy at all and trust me you don’t want to feel grumpy and painful in this holy christening ceremony.

As such, timeless beige chunky heels will be a lovely choice as it just goes well with everything. It truly does!

And for the girls who want to add a dash of sparkle to the look, reach for the mary jane flats with crystal embellishment just to add a sense of whimsy.

And last recommendation, the lace-up espadrilles wedge!

If you are wearing something soft and casual, these cuties never go wrong! They look AMAZING in those outdoor shots.
