A few weeks ago I posted a review of The Monochrome Dress By AX Paris. The dress was part of AX Paris’ size 8-14 line, and as the dress came up a little bit small in the 14 I was keen to try some items from the Curve line (sizes 16-26).
That wish was granted a few days ago when this gorgeous number arrived at my flat, courtesy of the lovely Alex at AX Paris.
I went for an 18 in this dress, and that size was spot on.
The elastic sat under my bust without squishing my chest or restricting me. Naturally, this look would need a belt to complete it, but the fit is great without it.
The dropped hem was a great length on me at the back. The front did show a little more knee than I am used too, meaning that I would probably pair the dress with tights or leggings until I feel a bit braver!
I am a huge animal print fan, and so the print of the dress was heaven for me! I know that it can be seen as ‘tacky’ by some, but a floaty modest dress like this is a happy medium for those who want to rock the leopard look in a more subtle way.
I’m not a fan of my arms, as I often say, and so a bolero or a jacket like this one would be a perfect addition to this look.
I can’t wait to try out more AX Curve items, as I’m pleasantly surprised by this one. I expected it to be a bit frumpier as it’s hard to tell how something looks without a model, especially when in contrast with the gorgeous looks seen in the smaller size range.
