Plus size wedding guest outfits aren't always easy to come by and I knew I wanted something beautiful and unusual, so I knew I had my work cut out for me. Then Lady Voluptuous announced their Spring/Summer release of dresses and I knew I'd be able to find something.
In case you don't know the Lady Voluptuous range of dresses are all vintage dresses designed by Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust - all go up to a size 32.
So far from the Lady Voluptuous range I have the Estella, Ursula, Marilyn, Medusa, Bellatrix, Phoebe (in two prints) and now the Maria - I love them all for different reasons.
I chose the Maria because of the unusual pattern. I loved the idea of owning a mustard dress (I think she is my first) and the purple roses finished it off perfectly. I really like the neckline and the length of the dress too. She comes complete with a belt that ties around the back to pull in the dress around the middle, which is a shape I really like.
There are still a couple of Lady Voluptuous dresses that I'd like to get but I have yet to decide what my next purchase will be!
One thing I wanted to touch upon is the fact that when you buy a dress, you'll probably never look like the model on the website. There are lots of people who worry about this and I wanted to tell you to STOP! It's OK not to look like the girl the website, because you look perfectly exactly as you are!
