Maxi Dress // ASOS Curve
You know when you find the dress, but the dress is too expensive? That happened. I'm not ashamed to admit I window shop ASOS Curve almost daily. Who doesn't? I'd been gazing at this most perfect-colourful-gorgeous damn maxi dress and it'd been sat on my wishlist for a month or two. Then the sale came.
Okay, who said big girls can't wear stripes? Please point them in my direction because boy, this dress is a dream. Aside from the beautifully bright colours, the shape works perfectly on a fuller figure. The design change and the cut under the bust is very flattering and enhances your curves in all the right places. Being a floaty chiffon fabric, it hides a multitude of sins and allows for maximum comfort with no restriction at all. And just quite frankly, it feels fabulous to twirl a round in. There's a lot of outtakes.
I love that the dress wouldn't look out of place on a Summer holiday in Marbella, but equally can be rocked at a wedding or just a garden a party. The dress stands tall on me - I'm 5ft 6" for reference - but paired with a heeled sandal it's the perfect length. The bold colours stand out from the crowd and look striking coupled with a bright lip and clutch bag to colour clash. Good news, the dress isn't Curve exclusive, you can also grab one in the ASOS Standard range.
