Curvissa Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Plus-size brand Curvissa have long been a brand I’ve bought from and more recently worked with on my blog.  They have a fab range of women’s clothing in sizes 14-32, and cover a wide variety of styles and tastes.

Despite the fact that the weather here in the UK has left much to be desired for the first half of the year, Curvissa are pressing forward with their gorgeous Spring/Summer 2013 collection.  They recently launched their new TV advert – take a look at it here:

I love the summery look of the ad and the music feels so fun and upbeat.  There’s also an exclusive behind the scenes video:

It makes it look so much fun to do a fashion shoot!  The models are absolutely stunning and the hair and make-up artists have done a terrific job.  

If you sign up for a Curvissa account you get 20% off your first order, which is a fantastic saving.  I have my eye on quite a few things on the site at the moment, and in particular this stunning S. Oliver Printed Dress that features in the advert – did you spot it?

Isn’t it pretty? The pattern is fab and the neckline is great for fuller busted ladies.  I suspect it may need a belt to pull it in at the waist but seeing as the fabric is stretchy it’s worth trying a size down if you’re looking for best fit on your waist.

Another of my favourites has to be the Floral Print Maxi Dress:

This dress is just beautiful.  The print is stunning and the cut is spot on for hourglass figures.  I can just imagine wearing this dress in the evening after a day on the beach.  It would undoubtedly show off a tan to perfection!  And I do like how Curvissa have included a side-on photo of the dress on their site, as well as the standard front and back shots.  It’s so helpful to see an item from a variety of angles when browsing online, which is why I always show so many photos when I write an item review for my blog.

And I have mentioned it before but the Leaf Print Tea Dress is another firm favourite of mine:

The simple print of this dress is just lovely – the monochrome leaf design is brought to life by the pretty pink floral highlights along the bottom edge and the cut looks to be terrific.  So pretty and feminine.

And I have some great news! Curvissa have launched a fantastic competition on their Facebook page – find out all about it here  But be quick – the competition closes on 9th June 2013.

    How does Curvissa come up size wise? I want to order the S. Oliver dress but not sure what size to go for.

      I find them pretty true to size, but maybe order a couple of different sizes, just to be on the safe side.
