The Cut For Evans is a massive step forward & a huge leap from anything Evans have really done in the past - so I get that it will split opinion but I didn't realise quite how much it would. I made the 'mistake' of reading some of the comments on the Evans Facebook page after the launch, and I was flabbergasted at some of the comments left.
I 'like' how lots of different women commented about how they wouldn't/shouldn't/couldn't wear the collection because of their size - as if this was a blanket rule for everyone. We work so hard to prove that fashion is inclusive of all sizes and comments like this really set it so far back! Thankfully Evans have deleted lots of the really negative comments but it means that I can't quote them here - sorry!
Anyway - I have seen LOADS of women in these clothes and I think they look fab. I have loved seeing different women, with different shapes and their own individual styles wearing these outfits - so I thought I would share them with you. I can understand if the Cut For Evans range is not for you, but I don't know how anyone can say that this range is 'hideous' across the board... Look at these fierce, fabulous fatties rocking the range....

Personally I think each of the girls look amazing in their outfits, however even if you don't I can't see how you can say that as a blanket response to the collection that it doesn't look good on big bodies or that it hasn't been designed with larger girls in mind - because the vastly different shapes and sizes shown above show that it can mostly definitely be rocked if you want to!
What do you think of the collection?
