Here's What I Would Have Spent - Missguided

A few weeks ago I did a post about Pink Clove and what I would have bought from them if they stocked my size. I also write about how brilliant it was that Missguided had launched their own plus size range. So, I thought I would combine the two and do another new post! 

Even better than that, I teamed up with a whole host of bloggers to do the same! See the link at the bottom of this post for other bloggers who have taken part in there #HeresWhatIWouldHaveSpent blogger challenge

So, back to Missguided.

I am passionate about plus size clothing and ensuring that everyone has options to wear the clothing that they want to. So when I heard that Missguided were launching their own range I was over the moon. Whilst I am a little disappointed they don't do above a size 24 yet, I still see it as a great start!

Anyway, Missguided - here's what I would have spent, if you stocked my size!





While I was on the site, I thought I would have a nosey at what sales had been like. Obviously I can't check every time, but some items I checked had (un?)surprising results. For example the splash print midi skirt above has sold out in the 2 largest sizes it stocks (22 and 24) and the dogtooth skater dress is only available in the smallest size they stock (16). Interesting that the larger sizes are doing.. Surely that shows that there is a need for these larger sizes.

These are just some of my favourite Missguided items and what I could see myself in if they did ever decide to stock above a size 24 - we can but hope!

What Missguided items are your faves?

Is Plus Size Fashion MissGuided?

You have probably seen online today that online retailer MissGuided launched their first plus size range. I have to admit that before last week I hadn't heard of the clothing website, mainly because their main range seems to stop at a size 14, with a handful of pieces in a size 16.

Their Curvy+ range launched today and has been met with love. The range (which stocks sizes 16-24) seems to be a good extension and representation of their existing range, which is always good news!



Now, you could say it is because I am bitter that I can't fit into their Oxblood Gilet, but I am disappointed that the range stops at a size 24. I guess seeing as they previously did up to a size 14/16 it is a massive step in the right direction but I want to see retailers taking leaps! 

Now a days, buying a size 24 dress online is not a novelty. We have an abundance of retailers who now stock plus size collections up to a size 24/26. Yes, some of the MissGuided pieces are brilliantly fashionable but who decided that fashion stopped at a size 24?

With retailers like MissGuided shouting from the roof top for days before their collection that they're launching such an exciting product - I would love for it to be something more than we normally see.


I honestly think people who believe plus size fashion should stop at a size 24 are misguided. There are so many bigger women who are crying out for pieces like this, we just need a retailer to listen!

I love the MissGuided plus size range and I can see why it has been so well received, but I would love to see more! 

What do you think?
