I’m sure you’ve noticed but plus size brands have been popping up left, right and centre these days. Of course I’m not complaining, in fact I’m over the moon about it! I remember when I only had a few places to buy anything decent and now I can actually choose where I spend my money. There’s still a way to go but things are getting better thats for sure. One of the new plus size brands that has been making itself well and truly known is In The Style Curve. With celebrity collaborations, super on trend pieces and the fact they actually use plus size models, I can understand why they’re doing so well! I wanted to give them a try to find out what fit and quality was like. The prices are pretty standard so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was pretty pleased. Obviously, me being a floral fiend the first thing I tried was this gorgeous Bardot swing dress. It’s from the Binky summer collection. (Also know as Alexandra Felstead from Made in Chelsea – if you didn’t know!) It’s an exclusive in-house print made at In The Style. I love it because the likleyhood of twinning with someone at a summer BBQ is minimum. It really is gorgeous. Usually I’m disappointed by how much a bright colour can differ from seeing it online and having it in real life, but this dress really is super bright. Red isn’t usually my colour but this has a coral tinge to it which makes it not so harsh. It’s a lovely shade and in the sun will look amazing. In The Style Curve is available in sizes 18 – 28. In terms of sizing, I would say that the fit is great in the sense of sizing. So the arms were spacious and the dress was a swing shape s it should be. So stick to your usual size, I would say that the dress was pretty short. If I was on holiday and it was incredibly hot I’d wear it but at home during a normal summers day I’ll probably wear it over leggings or ripped jeans as little gust of wind and it will be game over! I’m 5ft 6 for reference. If you’re shorter, you’ll be fine. So I’m impressed with the fit (although I’d like it longer) and colour is just as gorgeous as on the website. The quality is so far so good. I’ve worn it and washed it and it hasn’t fallen apart or gone out of shape. Fast fashion has a way of doing that! So thumbs up In The Style Curve. Another fab place for plus size babes to spend their money.
