City Chic Wild Floral Dress and Wild Crane Dress 14/XS (US)

Here in the UK, we have quite a range of plus-size fashion brands to choose from. The biggest and perhaps most well-known include Evans, Pink Clove, Asos Curve, Yours Clothing, New Look Inspire, Collectif, Curvissa, Boohoo Plus, Simply Be, Forever 21+, and Taking Shape. However, if you're looking for an even broader range of choice for clothing for larger ladies, you might want to cast your net a little further and look across the pond to the USA. In America, women seem to be spoilt for plus-size choices, with brands such as Pinup Girl ClothingTorrid, IGIGI, Ashley Stewart, One Stop Plus, Lane Bryant, and Avenue really leading the way and providing an incredibly wide range of style choices. Most recently, super-cool plus-size brand City Chic, originally founded in South Africa but perhaps better known for its stores in Australia, opened its first store in the US. 

(I am keeping my fingers VERY tightly crossed that all of these brands will soon be coming over here to the UK, but in the meantime I am often tempted by the gorgeous threads available from these overseas retailers.)

A few months ago, I saw the stunning Chastity from Garner Style showing off a dress from City Chic; it was the Wild Floral Dress (US sizes 14/XS-24/XXL, $138.00):

Pink Clove Bold Bloom Skater Dress 18

I've got a real love for floral dresses so I'm absolutely delighted that they're all the rage at the moment. What could be better than a dress emblazoned with flowers in an array of gorgeous colours? Some might say leopard print, or polka dots, or stripes, or aztec print, and so on...I love all of those too, but florals more often that not are the prints that really jump out at me.

I've reviewed a number of plus size clothing brand Pink Clove's items over the past few months on my blog; some of which I've purchased myself and some of which I've been sent by the lovely PR team. Today's review is of a dress I bought myself - and I'm very glad I managed to snap this one up as it's now, sadly, out of stock.

The dress I'm reviewing today is the Pink Clove Bold Bloom Skater Dress (£26, UK sizes 16-32).
