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?

Paying Homage To Some Voluptuous Ladies

As you will have noticed, I am a big fan of the new Lady V London/Fuller Figure Fuller Bust partnership Lady Voluptuous. I haven't yet blogged an outfit post of me in the range - but it's coming! I did blog about my love of the range here!

Over the past few years there have been different retailers telling us that we don't need a varied plus size range and that the type of clothing we're all keen to wear, just doesn't have a market!

So... I wanted to put together a post of lots of women wearing different items from the range. To show that all shapes and sizes want all sorts of fashion and that retailers are wrong when they tell us it is not needed. I put out some shout outs on social media and these lovely ladies sent their photos - don't they look AMAZING!?

And of course, the creator Georgina looking great in some of her own designs! She's also on every photo on the website but I wanted to include these ones to show how the dresses can be styled differently to suit you!

The range has only been out a week so not everyone has taken photos etc yet - but doesn't this show that these ranges are needed and that women are crying out for different styles to wear no matter their size?

Perhaps I'll do another of these in the future when I can grab even more photos from even more amazing ladies!

Have you got a Lady Voluptuous dress yet? Which is your fave?

Trying Something a Little Different From Lady V London

If you have read my blog before then you will know I am a massive fan of the Estella dress by Lady V London and Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust. I honestly feel that the Estella dress was something quite revolutionary - in that you just can't find pretty, vintage style clothing in sizes 28+.



Lady V London were kind enough to send me a dress to the British Plus Size Awards - which you can read all about here. I initially wanted an Estella dress but unfortunately you all loved them so much that they sold out in my size. Lady V London actually offer 3 plus size dresses - the Isabella and the Hepburn alongside the Estella. I looked at the measurements for the Hepburn and even though it's 2 sizes smaller, the way it is cut means the they weren't too much smaller than the Estella style I was so in love with.




They sent me the Violent Violet Poppy Hepburn dress and I was over the moon when it fitted. I love the shape of the dress and the pattern is not one I have seen much before at all. I probably would benefit from a size up was available, but once again it just goes to show that you can ignore labels and make 'too small' clothing fit you.

I went to the awards with Lucia from U Can't Wear That who managed to bag the Estella Damask print dress before they all went - she looked lovely!




I have 3 Lady V London dresses now and I haven't a problem with any of them. I have always loved fast, affordable, bargain priced fashion. However an investment piece like this is far more likely to make my wardrobe than it did before and that is all down to the quality offered by Lady V London.

I wait with baited breath to see what other Estella patterns they bring out next!

As part of their Black Friday Deals, Lady V London have up to 60% off of dresses until midnight. I snapped up an Isabella to complete my Lady V London collection. When it gets here I will have at least one of each of their dresses... Review coming soon, of course!
