Lady V London Estella Dress: Cream Birdcage Print and Red Wine Polka Dot Print

I have been aware of vintage-inspired brand Lady V London (a.k.a. Lady Vintage London) for a few years now and have often lusted over their gorgeous dresses and beautiful prints. However, as my proportions are so troublesome, I had never previously dared to place an order as I strongly suspected I wouldn't be able to get a good fit on both my bust and my waist.

I expect you are already familiar with my wonderful friend, Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, and the dress she helped design for Lady V: the Estella.

Evans Scarlett & Jo Black Spot and Floral Print Dress 16

I love Scarlett & Jo. I know I've said it before but I adore the clothing they produce and am always impressed with their new collections. They really know how to make the most of a feminine figure and how to show it off to its best advantage.

I recently ordered a couple of Scarlett & Jo dresses to try on from Evans, and of course I took the opportunity to take some photos to share the garments with you. Today's review is of the Scarlett & Jo Black Spot and Floral Print Dress (was £45.00, now £40.00, UK sizes 14-32 (some sizes out of stock)).

BiuBiu Rotterdam Wrap Top 40 BB/BBB

I've been writing a number of reviews of Polish boob-friendly brand BiuBiu lately, and that's because I have owned these items for some time and have been waiting for the weather to turn cooler so that the timing of my reviews is more appropriate.

If you haven't heard of BiuBiu before, they make reasonably-priced bust-friendly clothing that fits amazingly well and is wonderfully comfortable to wear whilst being feminine and flattering.

Today I am going to share with you the BiuBiu Rotterdam top (£19.35).

Evans Scarlett & Jo Black Jersey Crepe Top 14 and Yellow Floral Print Prom Skirt 14

I have previously waxed lyrical on my love for Scarlett & Jo's dresses, and you can read my past reviews here. Back in the summer, they did something a bit different, and brought out their highly successful prom dresses in separates. Naturally, I was itching to try them out for myself, so I placed an order with Evans and eagerly awaited their arrival.

First of all, I tried the Black Jersey Crepe Top (was £28.00, now in the sale for just £8.00; most sizes available at the time of writing) and the Yellow Floral Print Prom Skirt (was £48.00, now on sale for just £20.00 (wowwww!!) at the time of writing in limited sizes).

Cut For Evans Navy Textured Panel Knitted Dress 14/16

Several weeks ago, high street plus size retailer Evans launched its latest 'Cut For Evans' collection. These pieces are part of an industry leading initiative that introduces a range of garments from brand new fashion designers. You can read all about it here. Sadly, I wasn't able to attend the launch myself due to prior commitments, but I did order an item from the collection to try for myself and to share with you here on my blog. 

The piece I chose was the Cut For Evans Navy Textured Panel Knitted Dress (£55.00, UK sizes 14-32 (dual sized)).

Monroe Knows Amber Dress in Black 18

If you're an avid follower of plus size blogs and their various social media outlets, you will almost certainly have seen a lot of hype about new clothing brand, Monroe Knows. Starting off with a small signature collection, the brand is set to expand very soon and I for one can't wait to see what gorgeous items they bring out next. 

I was absolutely delighted when Marvin, the brand's founder, contacted me a few weeks ago to ask if I'd like to review a dress from the collection. I headed over to the website to see what choices I had and I was pleased to see they have a good range of stylish dresses for me to pick from. All of the dresses look well made and cut for plus size figures, and the price point shows this is not another brand aiming at the fast fashion market but instead they are offering quality garments made to last. 

I was instantly drawn to the Amber dress (£49.99, UK sizes 18-24); its figure-hugging style and slinky fabric appealed to me immensely and I loved the fact it had elbow-length sleeves, which are perfect for this time of year.

The Big Tights Company: Comparing the All Woman 180 Denier Tights with the All Woman Cotton (woolly feel) Tights

As we head into the winter months and the weather turns colder, we reach the point where it's time to bring out our warmer clothes. I have many garments in my wardrobe that I wear all year round; they just need a bit of adapting to be suitable for either warm or cool temperatures. 

In the autumn and winter, I often wear dresses that I also wear in the spring and summer, but I add layers to keep me warm. It's also crucial to have some warm, thick tights to see me through the winter, and when I was recently searching through my wardrobe and drawers I was shocked to discover that all of my winter tights had holes in them. They've done pretty well as I've owned them for several years, but it was a sure sign that I needed to top up my tights collection.

BiuBiu Gotham Top 40 BB/BBB

If you're looking for a brand that makes gorgeous, bust-friendly clothing, you'd do well to check out Polish brand BiuBiu. I've bought many items from them in the past and have never been disappointed. They pay close attention to providing an excellent fit for ladies whose boobs don't easily fit into high street clothing and stock a wide range of tops, shirts, dresses, and even jackets.

Some time ago I bought the BiuBiu Gotham top (£19.35):

Pink Clove Floral Print Strappy Skater Dress 18

Pink Clove have brought out some amazing items since their launch around a year ago, and it's so great to see a new plus size brand go from strength to strength in the way that they have. I've reviewed quite a few items from them on my blog over the past 12 months and today I am bringing you one of my favourite dresses of the summer: the Pink Clove Floral Print Strappy Skater Dress (was £28.00 but now limited sizes in the sale at just £14.00).
