Many of you will know that I am a huge fan of BiuBiu. They make bust friendly clothing at very reasonable prices, and I have always found the fit to be excellent and consistent.
I was recently sent two dresses in sizes 44BB/BBB – which translates as ‘size 16 with huge boobies’ – check the BiuBiu size chart for more info on how their sizes work.
I found the dresses to fit exactly the same, despite them being different colours.
They have a wonderful high neckline – not so high that create a ‘shelf boob’ look, but high enough to be modest in situations that call for it.
The length is perfect on my 5’7 frame, hitting me at that magical point just below the knee. The capped sleeves didn’t cut in or make my arms look any bigger than they already are.
The stretchy cotton helps accommodate my figure, and is a nice cool material to wear in this amazing hot weather. I can see me adding a long sleeve tops underneath them, and some leggings and boots in the winter – versatile dresses, perfect all year round.
I wore the red dress to work yesterday, and it really is a perfect office dress. If I were going out after work I could have changed my flat shoes for some heels, instantly the look of the dress.
I did of course add a belt when I wore this dress to work. As you can see the dress fits amazingly well, but I just wanted that extra bit of definition and something to break the outfit up and match the dark shoes I had on.
I found that the tulip shaped skirt added a bit of puff to my stomach. I don’t mind this too much as it also helped conceal it somewhat, but at certain angles it did add some bulk. However, the adding of a simple waist belt did help draw attention away from the puffiness.
In conclusion, I love these dresses. They really do accommodate my bust whilst still being flattering on my body. In these photos I paired them with my trusty Maidenform shapewear, a plunge bra from Ewa Michalak and my old Marks and Spencers high heels.
Special thanks goes to the beautiful patient CurvyWordy for taking these photos for me.
