Falling out of love with ASOS Curve - part 2

I mentioned yesterday that I had another dress waiting for my to try this morning, and I thought I had left the best til last... Sadly not:

Now, @FFigureFBust had mentioned that she had ordered it, and was disappointed with the fit but I wanted to try it for myself.

It was the smallest packet, and I had expected a light weight, see through dress. I was suitably impressed by the heavy material, the netting under skirt, and the slip under that - I started to see why it was originally £60 (but currently £24).

Sadly though, that is where my excitement ended.

Hellooooooooooooo breasts!! The skirt wasn't as full as I'd expected, although that may have been due to how tightly packed it was in the packet - it may open out with wear, but I'll not know as it is being returned once the Post Offices are open.

Toooooo tight for words! You can't get the full effect here, but it really isn't a dress made for breasts, of any degree. And I think that ASOS needs to use models which show aspects of the dress off - or at least fill it out! ASOS curve, unlike Evans and Simply Be, starts from size 20 (Evans and SimplyBe start size 14 / 16)... so why produce clothes smaller than a 20, just for their models to wear... It doesn't make business sense, or logical sense...

Hmmmm... Something to ponder.

Much love my lovelies,

  1. Ohh I can see what you mean about their sizes. :( x

  2. Yeah, it really isn't ideal AT ALL! Look on her, then at my chest. Now, my boobs are in proportion for my size, but I know that not everyone is... but this is just unreal.

    Their other dresses (such as the purple one in the part one) are fine on the chest... just bizarre x

  3. I have never been in love with asos curve the sizing is way off im not even a 26 which is the biggest size they do and i cant fit in the clothes they make i wear 24 in new look and 2/24 evans its re dic!

  4. I just feel that some of their sizing is spot in (I have 3 other dresses in a 22) and find it baffling that these clearly don't fit!
