Great Flaming Flamingos - A Lady Voluptuous Review!

*No actual flames.

I don't want to talk too much about  Lady V London and their sister brand Lady Voluptuous, because I have swooned over them on many a blog post previously. If you haven't browsed their selection then I suggest you do, if you're between a size 16 and 32, they will have something you'll love I'm sure. (Lady V London actually do much smaller sizes too, yay for inclusive brands).

As soon as I saw the Phoebe dress I knew I had to have her. I have loved all of the dresses so far and you might remember I reviewed the Bellatrix a few months ago. As much as I loved them all, I knew that the Pheobe would be right at home in my wardrobe. The fitted bust and the flowing knee length skirt are a style I know and love - the built in petticoat an added bonus.





Size wise I would say that the dress comes up slightly small, especially if you have a large bust. I wore my normal sizes as I don't mind fitted items at all, but it could be worth sizing up if you prefer being able to breathe ;) (It wasn't that bad).

As with all of the Lady Voluptuous dresses, you can tell that this has been thought about. The arms are a great fit and the skirt is generous. Due to having a large belly (who knew) I haven't always got on with petticoats in the past, they just don't sit right. However, the petticoat added to the underlayer of  the Phoebe dress is perfect and gives a little lift to the dress - perfect!




NOW! Let me tell you about the pattern - Well, I don't even need to tell you about it. JUST LOOK AT IT!!!! BRIGHT PINK FLAMINGOS! 



I know I have said it before and I will say it again, but plus size retailers please stop saying that you don't sell clothing options in bigger sizes because people don't want them. This dress SOLD OUT in a day... in my size I bought the last one available 18 hours after it was released....

I find the whole concept of Lady Voluptuous really exciting and I can't wait to see what Georgina and the Lady V London team  have up their sleeves!

Have you got a Lady Volup dress? Tweet me and show me, I'd love to see!

  5. That looks lovely on you! I have this dress too, it's a bit big my only bugbear is the pesky dual sizing! The built is petticoat is fantastic and gives it better quality than some dresses I have spent a small fortune on
