I was sent this dress for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Spring is definitely in full swing. Although we have had a few April showers, we’ve had some lovely days too. I was recently approached to review an item from Pink Clove and I just had to opt for an old favourite – a dress.Their range of plus size dresses are simply amazing and it did take me a while to choose a dress, finally opting for the Plus Dita Wrap Front Maxi Dress in Paisley Print. This dress usually retails at £24 but is currently on sale for just £12 on the site – a fantastic price.
I very much lack self confidence so find it hard to take pictures of myself or let other people take pictures of me – a far cry from when I was a teen – but I do find that I always feel comfortable in a maxi dress when out and about.
I will admit that I haven’t always been comfortable with my size – I put on weight quite quickly with Olivia and have struggled to shift it and haven’t always been able to find things that fit me that I also like the design of. I’ve always found that maxi dresses suit any size and this dress is something I feel super comfortable in.
I don’t know about you but I like to wear as little layers as possible when it comes to spring and summer. I live in leggings the rest of the year but during the warmer months, I love a long flowy maxi dress – just one layer and light and airy enough to ensure you don’t overheat like other clothing.
I adore the fact that the straps are substantial. Some maxi dresses have the tiniest little straps which do nothing for the look of the dress. These straps are wide and perfect and move into the wrap front of the dress well. I love wrap fronts on dresses or shirts – they cover a multitude of sins and look good and make sure you don’t accidentally expose more than you mean to.
I also really love the pattern – the paisley print is gorgeous and I love the mix of green, white and orange colours on the blue background leading into the black wrap front at the top. The colours all work together and make for a really pretty pattern.
The dress is the perfect length for my body too – stopping just before my ankle. I’ve had many problems with maxi dresses in the past where they’ve been too long and I tripped quite a few times. The length on this dress is perfect for me.
I really love this dress from Pink Clove – I’ve already had comments about how lovely it is from my mother in law who also loves maxi dresses and a few others have said how much they like it too. I feel really comfortable in it, especially in the warmer weather we have been having.
