I Love It When A Retailer Listens - Topsy Curvy Fashion

I bloody love the ladies at Topsy Curvy and have been lucky enough to meet and hang out with them a couple of times. One of the things that absolutely shines through about this independent brand is their passion for plus size fashion. I have chatted to them many times about the plus size clothing industry and what I would love to see.

Over recent months I have seen more and more Topsy Curvy items go up to a size 32 which is fantastic. Originally many of their items stopped at a size 26, which while that is great for a small retailer like this I always told them that I would love to see more and bless them they listened.

Currently in my wardrobe I have some jeans from them that fit my body amazingly (review coming soon), a checked top and this lilac coloured blazer.



They have both the checked tops and the pastel blazers up to a size 32 in a variety of colours - YAY for choice! Both of the items fit me well and feel really nice to the touch. They're really good quality and for the price tag I feel well worth the investment. We all need fast, affordable fashion choices and now thanks to Topsy Curvy a size 32 body is getting those same choices!  I will review the top soon!!!

But now, onto the blazer! The fact that they do it in a size 32 and in different colours is great. I found it a bit too small to meet in the middle at the front but to be honest I would always wear a blazer like this open. It's a nice feeling material, quite lightweight which is perfect for summer. I love the pastel colour of the blazer too, which seems to be exactly what my Spring wardrobe needs




I know that the ladies have much more up their sleeve when it comes to fashion so it is well worth keeping an eye on their website to see what they add. A really nice touch is their Facebook page too. They usually post photos of their items up with at least 3 (sometimes 4) girls wearing the same item and doing the same pose. This is a fantastic way of giving customers an insight into how the item will look on a body the same/similar shape and size as them and this really helps. Just another way that Topsy Curvy have listened to their customers and attempted to make the minefield that clothes shopping can sometimes be that much easier.



I love the blazer and I can't wait to see what else I can wear it with! Dress is ASOS Curve, bag is New Look and shoes are Primark.
