Christina By Pinup Girl Clothing

16 Dec

Not so long ago, Pinup Girl Clothing extended their size range in several of their items. One item was the Christina dress, seen here in purple.

I tend to be a XL-2XL in PUG items, with the occasional need for 3XL, and I know that plenty of you lovely lot require larger sizes, and so this was fantastic news! Check out Pinup Girl Clothing’s delicious looking plus size section here.

I was very keen to give the Christina dress a try, and my wish came true a few weeks ago when a 2XL purple Christina arrived in the post for me.

2XL is pretty much my standard size in PUG items as I mentioned, and the clothes are often cut for my curves. This dress was no exception, and I felt like I had been poured into it. I naturally teamed it with my Maidenform shapewear to help smooth me out and pull me in.

The dress is made out of a stretch sateen. It has enough give to accommodate me, but wriggling the dress up to use the toilet proved a little nerve wracking. The material does crease and wrinkle rather easily during wear. I also found the bust to be ever so slightly small and shallow on me, meaning that my Freya Deco bra revealed itself a little too much. It was a perfect fit on the arms, and I really loved the collar detail.

Despite the fact that the 2XL is already too big on my waist, I do think that my next foray into the land of the Christina dress will involve me trying a 3XL, just to see how it fits. It is very touch and go across my hips, and that extra few inches would have allowed me a more comfortable cab ride!

I wore this dress out recently, and I naturally did team it with an old belt and bolero to suit my arm conscious waist loving style.

The dress did turn a few heads and it awarded me many compliments. It really is a show stopper!

What do you think of Pinup Girl Clothing’s size expansions? Will you be giving their dresses a try?
