Cosette, I Love You Very, Very Much - A Lady Voluptuous Review

I have blogged about Lady Voluptuous very many times, so I won't  talk too much about them. You can have a look at previous blog posts about them to learn all about the brand.

A few weeks ago they sent me one of their brand new Cosette patterns to try for myself. I love many of the Lady Voluptuous dresses but this probably isn't one I would try for myself at first glance. The Phoebe and the Bellatrix were perfect for me because of their shape. I prefer short sleeves to long and a wrap effect is sometimes hit and miss so I often avoid. That said, I love that this brand even though it is in its infancy have a range of styles for everyone.



I initially got the Queen of Hearts Cosette in my normal size but it was too big on the upper part of my body so I sent it back and exchanged it for a 26/28 - it fits like a dream. My only issue with the sizing is the belt which did not fit me - however, the 30/32 belt fit perfectly so it is a shame. However, remember they're a new brand and always learning and listening to feedback so I have every faith this is something that can be fixed.



What I love about all of the Lady V London dresses I have tried so far is the quality of the material. The material is nice and thick which gives a nice fit and helps you to feel supported when you wear it. This makes it comfortable to wear all day/night.



I love the length of this dress on me and I think it really helps to add to the vintage fit and feel. I have to mention that these vintage style dresses go up to a size 32, which is fantastic. All of the other brands tend to stop at least a few sizes smaller than this, which is such a shame.



The pattern of this dress is lovely and I can only imagine what it would look like dressed up with a petticoat - perfect! I am so glad I stepped outside of my comfort zone to give it a try!

Do you own a Lady Voluptuous dress yet? Which is your favourite?
