Since having children I have to admit that I am struggling to lose weight and to be honest most of the time it really doesn’t bother me one bit! I think this is partly to the fact you can now buy some amazing and fashionable clothing both online and in high street stores. When I had Benjamin, 21 years ago it was all floral tents and elasticated waist pants. Thankfully though times change!
JD Williams is a household name, an online catalogue that supplies everything you can think of. The ladies section provides clothing from a whole host of manufacturers and designers including plus size collections from Simply Be and Scarlett & Jo to name just two. I was kindly asked to review items from JD Williams so I chose a bardot style blouse from Lovedrobe for Simply Be and a 50s style dress from Scarlett & Jo.
The Lovedrobe Printed Bardot Top is in the fashionable off-the-shoulder style and comes in a stunning floral print that’s perfect for summer. The pretty frill neckline adds to the feminine feel and the long tapered sleeves are the perfect finishing touch to this essential summer look.
I love the way the top can be worn either on the shoulder or off without it looking ‘wrong’. The fabric feels very sheer and light but is infact not at all see through which was a concern when I first received it. It hangs beautifully and looks great dressed down with blue jeans and flats or dressed up with white jeans and heels! Available in sizes 12-32 and priced at £35 this is a piece that I will be wearing all through summer.
The Scarlett & Jo Floral Printed TwoFor Dress is a fabulous design of both skirt and top fastened together with an elastic ‘belt’. This black sweetheart-neck dress makes the perfect ‘50s silhouette. The print is a beautiful assortment of autumnal tones, with deep reds and teal. The dress features ¾ length sleeves and the elasticated waist provides an hourglass shape and comfort.
I was surprised how easy this dress was to wear and how versatile it is too, having worn it for both a theatre performance and also dinner to Pizza Hut without feeling uncomfortable, under or over dressed on either occasion. Again this dress could be worn during the day with flats and a denim jacket to dress it down like I did or dressed up with heels for a night on the town. Available in sizes 12-32 and priced at £65 this is a classic dress that will stand the test of time and be worn again and again.
Overall I was very pleased with both the selection of items for plus size and also the prices.
I was supplied with the items for the purpose of this review. All views and opinions are my own and genuine.
