The Curve

A short time ago I was fortunate enough to win a competition on Georgina's blog and one of my prizes was ANY item of clothing from The Curve. I was in heaven! I decided to choose this little number:

Unfortunately when it arrived it wouldn't even go near me! Even my head was too fat for this dress. Apparently this is an issue with their first collection and I was advised to go for something stretchier, so I plumped (ho ho ho) for the super split maxi dress. 

The items are beautifully packaged. It's lovely to receive a box like this in the post and your items wrapped up in tissue paper. 

Now, what you can probably tell in these photos is that I am STRUGGLING TO BREATHE. This collection comes up really small and, frankly, I would question whether you can call this collection "plus size" when the reality is that it probably fits sizes 10-18 comfortably! However, I have been told that the sizing has been looked at and changed for the next pieces and that they are planning to increase their range (I've just seen options for size 28 on the website- exciting!)

What I do love about The Curve is a) their customer service and b) how fashion forward their collection is; bright colours, PU, bodycons and, er, leather shorts?! Yes!

Oh, I should also mention my amazing necklace that I love times a million from Simply Be. So sparkly, so big! 

Now I just need somewhere to wear it....
