I’ve bought plus size clothing from Pink Clove in the past and completely loved them, so when they got in touch to see if I’d like to try some pieces from their new range I was delighted!
Pink Clove are one of the few brands that really get what young plus size people want. I want to look cool and rock my own style, but in the past my choices have been limited. I’m really glad I found Pink Clove (and even more glad that they found me!).
I decided to choose a night outfit and a day outfit so I had something new for a variety of occasions. My first choice was the Plus Josephine Lace Overlay Embroided Dress (affiliate link, use code FREE20 for 20% off!), it’s pretty without being too fussy and because of the overlay design, you don’t feel like you’re showing off too much flesh, or covering up too much!
I accessorised with some black pointy-toe flats, a flower crown from Ebay and my hair is actually clip in hair extensions!
The fit was as expected and I didn’t have to size up or down (as I often have to do in other plus size ranges). I know I’m going to sound like a proper mum when I say this, but the dress was really easy to wash too. The flower design is printed on and the lace is more like a mesh than lace, so it was potentially going to be tricky to clean. I washed this dress on a 30 minute cold wash with slowish spin and it’s come out as good as new. The flowers haven’t cracked, the fabric hasn’t shrunk and the mesh hasn’t done that weird worm-like unravel that some cheap lace fabric does!
My second choice was the Plus Khadija Bird Print Cullotte Jumpsuit (affiliate link, use code FREE20 for 20% off!). Admittedly, I think you probably could wear this on a night out, but I like it as a sort of posh day-wear.
I’m out of my comfort zone in this jumpsuit because since I’ve gained the weight, I try to hide any conceivable lumps and bumps under swathes of fabric. In a jumpsuit, I don’t have that option. It’s really comfy in this hot weather (especially since it stops my thighs rubbing!) and I like the way it look, despite it being a bit more form fitting! I think the pattern is so beautiful it just instantly makes me feel fabulous!
