I was recently contacted by Curvissa, who very kindly offered to send me an item of clothing from the range for review. I chose this beautiful black lace dress.
Curvissa are a new brand, stocking sizes 14-32. I was really impressed with the range of styles available, in particularly the range of evening wear. I also found the website easy to navigate, and well laid out. Some people will like the shape calculator function, where you add your measurements and it works out what body shape you are. It then makes suggestions as to what styles suit your body shape. (I found it interesting, as I have never known what body shape I am!)
The dress itself is very pretty. I like to have items in my wardrobe I can play around with, that I can wear to work or wear out to a more formal occassion. This dress is perfect for that. Here, I have worn it with just a belt, leggings and ballet flats, ideal for going into town shopping or out for lunch. I think it will also look awesome with some biker boots and a biker jacket when the weather gets cooler. It is short (i'm 5ft 6, for reference) but I think you could get away with wearing opaque tights with it also. To dress is up, you could pair this with opaque tights, some chunky silver bangle and some heels for a night on the town.
The quality of the dress is really good. I love the details of the sleeves, the lace on the cuffs give it a really pretty touch. The sleeves are a good length too, perfect if you're a bit shy of showing your arms. The detail of the lace is gorgeous, and I really love the lace detail on the V neck, too.
All in all, a very pretty, functional dress!
