As part of their overhaul of their True range, the good people over at Clothing at Tesco offered me the chance to review a couple of their items. I was keen to get started, so didn't actually wait for the True range to be released, instead opting for their straight range, in plus sizing!
I've reviewed one such item here, and wanted to share my secret favourite of the two:
This cute dress with no sleeves and a Peter Pan collar screamed at me when I was browsing through the options, and I was not disappointed!
I opted for this in a 22, and glad that I did, as it was a great fit across the bust, a little baggy on the waist, and sits well at the hips. What I love about this dress the most though is the great fit under the arms. With most retailers, as they go up their sizes, they just make everything bigger. But things like arm holes don't need to made as big as, say, the bust of the item. In this case, the arm holes don't show the world my bra, meaning I could confidently go without the shrug if I needed to. The way the weather is at the moment though, I really don't need to remove the shrug!!
Since these photos were taken, the dress has now shrunk a tad. Before it was riské to wear with tights, now it would be very inappropriate! I wore it with leggings to work (with the high neck, so was I wasn't showing too much skin!), and it worked very well. Although if it shrinks again, I'll have to wear it with skinny jeans only!
I've looked on line and it proved so popular that it is no longer available, but if you have a Clothing at Tescos near you, have a look see if it is still about. I'm unfortunate in that my nearest one is about a 30min car journey away, although I've found I can return items to a store which is much closer, so I might just make do with ordering online instead!
Much love my lovelies,
