Last month I got very excited when I wrote about the launch of the new plus size range from Boohoo.com. I was impressed by the images of fashion-forward looks with purse friendly price tags, offering something new and fresh to the plus size market place. I reviewed the beautiful Samantha lace top before Christmas after I was kindly sent a parcel of beautiful items from Boohoo (you can check out that review here). Now I can bring you my second review, this time of the Eden Wrap front dress.
The Eden dress is a classic faux wrap style in the most gorgeous cobalt blue. It is a great mixture of viscose and acrylic, which means it is soft and stretchy. It has a curved hemline that sexy without being overtly revealing, and has a gentle elastication to create a natural waistband.
I wore this dress on New Years Eve when I went for a meal with my family – the elastication was perfect for over-indulging! Although the dress does have that elasticated waistband, I decided to add a belt to further enhance this part of the dress. I also used the faux wrap front to add a gorgeous necklace in a similar shade of blue.
I was really impressed with this dress, the fit was great, and I liked the fact that the front wrap detail did not gape. I often find I need to add a vest under wrap dresses when they reveal too much cleavage, but this did not spill open or gape, and instead kept my bust in place. The same was true of the hemline, which didn’t flap open.
The range from Boohoo is proving to be really impressive and extremely wearable. There are a couple of new pieces I have my eye on which I’ve featured below.
