Curvissa Takes 5 - Knitwear

I'm a big fan of cardigans. They just have a way of sneaking up on you, unassuming and twinset-and-pearls-y, when suddenly you're wearing a cardigan with an ice cream on it and thinking  -  this is ME!. 

**ahem** Sorry, I get a little carried away when on the subject of cardigans. The lovely Maxine Delicious named me her Cardigan Queen!

Thanks to Little Miss Delicious for the collage

So when the Curvissa team contacted me about reviewing some winter knits - I felt like saying yes only if there are cardigans involved!! 

And of course there were! Their plus size knitwear collection is rather varied, but I finally settled on this Shawl Collar Cardigan:




As you can tell from the collage, I'm a fan of the short cardigan, but I was really looking for something a little more relaxed and slouchy:


Which meant it was perfect for dressing down my Junarose dress for a relaxed Sunday doing chores, and then heading out to dinner with my Grandma!

It then made a poorly feeling me feel a little less icky in the office on Monday - where the comfort levels needed to be much higher than normal!


In fact, it is now hanging on the back of my chair at work, as I don't know about you, but my office fluctuates between the heights of summer and the depths of winter in one day - so there is no way to dress accordingly other than layers! So this cardi is a great way to counteract that as it's a neutral colour (although I'm not usually one to let colours clashing stop me!).

I opted for the 22/24, and found the fit to be perfect for the oversized look! My only criticism is the material is a little scratchy, but I get the idea that it would soften with washes. 

Overall, I'd give this a 5 * rating! The roughness of the material really isn't something I would mark them down for!

A perfect piece for the transitioning wardrobe from Summer to Winter - and if you have an office like mine!

Have a look at what my fellow Knitwear Reviewers make of their pieces:


Much love my lovelies,
