Vintage dresses 1950's and 1960's

I just love these mid-century dresses, too small for me. I hear women were smaller then, maybe shorter, but I know plus size women have always been around, and were very fashionable and sexy. I just don't seem to come across many or any plus size vintage dresses from the 1950s to 60s, but I know they are out there. I'll keep an eye out for those finds.

I also am having insights of tent dresses from the 60s and 70s. I am hoping a trend comes along for these. I think they are flattering for most women. I do have a few from the 60s. I may at some time do a reproduction of these. They can be accessorized  so easily, layered, belted high, waistline, or low on the hips, worn short as a top, mini, maxi, paired with loose baggy pants or tight leggings. Let me know what you all think about tent dresses, love, hate, oh no, or what the....?
