Plus Size Dresses at House of Fraser

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I was recently contacted by House of Fraser to ask if I would like to try a dress from one of their ranges.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how many Plus Size options they stock and have a good selection up to a size 30.

The dress I chose was the Scarlett & Jo Plus Size Floral Fit & Flare Dress Now £25.00 Was £40.00. I'd previously tried this dress on when I went on the shopping trip to Birmingham last month and regretted not buying it.



The fabric is a decent weight jersey but it isn't overly thick and perfect for this time of year when the weather can't make it's mind up. 

I work in an air-conditioned office and always need sleeves for when they switch the wind machines on. 

The only thing I don't love is the keyhole design on the neck. I feel like it could be a bit smaller. When I look down I can see my bra and it made me a bit concious when I was at work. 

I was assured it was only because I was looking down, just worth mentioning. I don't feel like I need to wear a cami top under it but for me I'd prefer it to be a little bit smaller. 

I was also a little wary of the shoulder pads but I really like the shape they give to the dress and don't think they added any more bulk that I already have on my shoulders. I don't think they'd be too difficult to remove if you didn't like them. 


This was an accidental shot. I stick my camera on self timer and run to the place I want to stand and it fires off 10 shots then I pic about 3 or 4 pictures to use in my blog. 

I think i demonstrates the shape of the dress really well. It was a fairly windy day and the fabric felt heavy enough that it wouldn't blow up round my ears. 


I love the colour, fabric (It won't need ironing) the print and the length. I'm 5'5 and it sits just on my knee which for work is perfect.

The dress was sent to me for review purposes but all opinions are my own.
