Lady V London Lady Voluptuous Pink Lips on Black Full Circle Skirt 16 and Japanese Floral on Black Full Circle Skirt 18

Lady V London's plus size range, Lady Voluptuous, continues to go from strength to strength. The label, which was created in collaboration with my wonderful friend Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, boasts a range of dresses in UK sizes 16-32, all of which have been flying off the shelves every time they get restocked. It was fantastic to see them recently release a new item - the Full Circle Skirt - and of course I was quick to buy a couple to try out. At just £35 each, these skirts are superb value.

I wasn't completely sure which size would be best, so I decided to order two different prints, each in a different size. I went for the Pink Lips on Black Full Circle Skirt in size 16, and the Japanese Black Floral Full Circle Skirt in size 18.

Panache Tallulah Purple Animal Balconnet Bikini Top 34J and Fold Pant 20

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted, so apologies for that. I have had quite a busy month and I just haven't been able to find time to sit down and blog. However, today I am back and as we are fast approaching summer here in the UK I wanted to bring you a swimwear review.

I have been sent a number of bikinis recently and I will be reviewing them all here on Curvy Wordy over the next few weeks. In this post I will be reviewing the Panache Tallulah Purple Animal Balconnet Bikini and Fold Pant.

Lady V London: Lady Voluptuous Bellatrix Dress 16

I recently reviewed the Medusa dress from the 'Lady Voluptuous' plus size range from Lady V London. This collection was launched only a few weeks ago but it has already made a great impression on the plus size blogging community, and many ladies have already reviewed the dresses from the range.

Today I am reviewing a second dress from the Lady Voluptuous line: the Bellatrix (£45).

Ewa Michalak S Kamea 36KK/80KK and Briefs 20/48

Every woman needs a basic black bra in her lingerie drawer. A bra that's just right for wearing under dark clothes for work and also perfect beneath a little black dress on a night out. However, a basic black bra doesn't need to be plain or dull, and today I am reviewing a set of lingerie that is anything but: the Ewa Michalak S Kamea.

Ewa Michalak Koszulka Babydoll Nostalgia 36KK 80KK and Thong 20/48

Back in January this year I was sent a number of items from Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak. It's taken me some time to pull together the photos and write up these reviews, but I hope you'll agree it was worth the wait as today I share with you my review of the Koszulka Babydoll Nostalgia.

Kix'ies Thigh Highs Hold Ups: Brooke LeAnne, Sam, and Lois

Being a keen wearer of hold-ups, Kix'ies is a brand I have been aware of for some time. They are based in the USA and are the brainchild of Samantha DeMartini, who came up with the idea after an embarrassing tights-related experience as a teenager. You can read Samantha's full story here. Particularly of note is the fact that a proportion of the profit from all Kix'ies sales goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - what a great initiative!

Lady V London: Lady Voluptuous Medusa Dress 16

Apologies for being absent from here for the past few weeks; I've been on a fortnight's holiday in the Caribbean, which was wonderful, and, although I took my laptop with me in the hope that I'd get some spare time to write blog posts, I shouldn't have bothered! I didn't get to turn my laptop on once as I was kept busy by my 8 year old niece and 5 year old nephew, so I can't complain as I had lots of fun and we made countless holiday memories. I also wore lots of gorgeous bikinis, which I will be reviewing in the coming weeks.

Since I've been home, I have been feeling rather under the weather, so my blogging ambitions have had to remain on hold for a while longer. Finally I am on the road to recovery and I am delighted to bring you my latest review.

A few weeks ago, my beautiful and incredibly talented pal, Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, did something amazing. OK, she does amazing things ALL the time, but this thing was extra special. It's something I've known about for a while and I have found it very hard keeping quiet, so goodness knows how she's managed it! Of course I am talking about the clothing range she has launched in collaboration with Lady V London: Lady Voluptuous.

Pink Clove Pleated Skater Skirt With Contrast Waistband 16

Plus size brand Pink Clove has continued to go from strength to strength since its launch in 2013. Offering a range of fast fashion items in sizes 16-32, their prices are just as attractive as their garments. I own a number of Pink Clove items and still wear items I bought when the brand first launched, including my beloved Red Tartan Skater Dress.

Late last year I was sent a number of items by the lovely Pink Clove PR team, and today I am going to share with you the Pleated Skater Skirt With Contrast Waistband (now sold out in pink but was £14.00, UK sizes 16-28).

Ewa Michalak PL Słowianki Bra 34KK 75KK

In December, I ordered some bras from Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak to make the most of a site-wide discount that was in place. I wanted to get my hands on some PL (plunge) bras, and so I added the PL Słowianki Bra to my basket.

Simply Be Extra Curvy Plus Boots - Do You Get What You Pay For?

I have always had wide calves. I inherited my dad's thick rugby player legs and I have always had difficulty getting a decent fit in any kind of trousers or jeans. It doesn't help that I have a 19" difference between my waist and hips (currently at 32" and 51" respectively) but my thighs are also pretty chunky and don't like to be contained by fabrics, especially those of the non-stretch kind. My calves haven't usually caused an issue with leg wear garments, but they most certainly have with boots.

Every autumn I eagerly go to shoe shops and make online orders in a bid to find the perfect knee high boots...but every time I am sorely let down by how the boots fit me in the calf. They simply don't! I have tried all the usual suspects, including Evans, Yours Clothing, and even Duo Boots, but none have given me a perfect fit. They have either not been wide enough in the calf, or the width of the foot area has been insufficient. I know, I know...I have a very awkward body! But I strive to find a decent fit in footwear as well as in clothing, so my search for perfect boots has been a long-lasting one.

I was therefore super excited when Simply Be brought out a range of extra wide calf boots: the Extra Curvy Plus range.
