I am a HUGE fan of Lady V London, not least because I was given the privilege of modelling their plus size dresses. Every time I share their dresses on my Facebook page I get a huge response. They stock so many gorgeous patterns at great prices, and women of every size and shape can find something for them.
Recently the lovely Victoria sent me some gorgeous dresses in styles that I have never tried before and *SPOILER* I adore them!
The first was in a style I have been dying to try for ages – the Hepburn.
Victoria sent me this poppy print dress in a size 18.
The Hepburn comes with a slim belt, and is made out of a cotton elastane blend, meaning that the 18 fitted my bust perfectly, although it was a little large on the waist.
The belt was a little large for me, however, I favour thicker belts, and that it what I will be adding to this gorgeous dress.
The length was perfect on my 5’7 frame, and it would look great with heels, flats or sandals.
The full skirt sat nicely, and didn’t crease easily. The colours popped and it was so pretty and feminine.
High necklines are not a favourite for many large busted women, but this one felt very flattering. This dress would be perfect for many occasions because of the modest neckline, and could be easily dressed up or down.
I will of course be adding one of my trusty boleros to the dress when I wear it out as my arms do not do sleeveless, but apart from that I adore this dress!
The second dress that I so kindly received was one of the much raved about wiggle dresses.
I have been curious about trying them ever since Kel Kitty’s review, and so I eagerly tried the size 18 dress on.
The dress had a small bit of stretch too it, like the Hepburn, and the 18 fit my gigantic hips in with room to spare!
The cut was very flattering and sexy, and the higher neckline makes it very versatile.
The pencil skirt didn’t nip in at the knee as much as I would like, but that only helped add to the versatile aspect. It could easily be a work dress, a perfect one to wear before heading out for office drinks.
I would definitely add a belt to this dress, and maybe remove some of the military style buttons to accommodate it. I don’t feel that the dress necessarily needs one, but I do always feel like I need one!
I love the deep wine colour of this particular dress, and of course, polka dots are always a winner for me!
