First of all, the jersey dresses. I really wanted at least one of these to work for me, but due to the dual sizing making them too generously cut around my bust, but clingy on my tummy I just didn’t feel comfortable in them, the cut was just all wrong for me. If I was to choose one of the dresses that I preferred I’d have opted for the Lobster Print but I didn’t love it enough to hop, skip and jump out of the store with it. It looks so good on Bethany who models it for the range, but I’m just far too conscious of VBO (visible belly outline) for me to rock it and feel amaze! I’d say if you’re busty and broad shouldered with a smaller tummy these could work well for you, but remember, there’s no stretch in these as you’d maybe expect with jersey.
Secondly, the coveted shirt dresses! Oh how I longed for one of these to look good on me! I really prayed for it! There were only 30’s left on the rail, no 32’s, so I was hopeful that they would be OK. The Painterly Animal Shirt Dress was an imminent NO! I haven’t actually taken pics of that dress because I couldn’t even get it on. I felt a bit like Sarah Jessica Parker in that one episode of Sex and The City where she’s ripping the wedding dress off her for dear life. Maybe it was just that the one that I tried was really badly cut? I don’t know, but that dress was a no go for me.
