Another day, another blog post on Topsy Curvy! These girls really can do no wrong in my eyes. They're a brand that really listen and they're constantly expanding and offering more.
I was lucky enough to hang out with the gorgeous trio at The Curvy Convention a few weeks ago - where they featured on the catwalk and had a stall there too!
I had my eye on this dress on their rail and asked what sizes they had with them. The largest they had left (yes they sold lots) was a 20, so I was, of course, a bit disappointed. However, Jo knows me well and told me to try it on anyway. Now, she knows me and she knows her brand, but I was not convinced.
Despite believing it would have no chance of fitting, I put it on and it fit like a glove. The dress is designed to be more of a swing style but I am not a fan of swing dresses on my body so this suited me perfectly. I couldn't believe it - a size 20 dress on my body! (I think they have since rejigged the sizing on this one so speak to them before you order).
I love the pattern of this dress and the fact that it is long sleeved. It makes it a really unusual piece and something that I would wear again and again. I wore this with plain black leggings and shoes just for a day around the shops but you could easily style it much differently if you wanted to.
The Topsy Curvy girls are great at describing how things fit on their Facebook page as well as showing photos of people with different body shapes and sizes wearing their items, which makes the online shopping experience much easier!
That said, I do want to make a trip to their shop, it looks like it would be so much fun!
