BBW Couture – Rose Vine 1950s Vintage Party Dress

Nothing excites me more than when I have the chance to try out a new brand and write about them. So, I’m really happy to introduce a brand new plus size clothing brand, BBW Couture! As soon as I went on their website I was immediately excited as I saw something which I’ve always found as a rarity in the plus size community, affordable vintage styled dresses. Normally when I’ve looked at vintage styled dresses, they’ve been on the £50+ mark and I’ve never wanted to invest that much. Simply as, I’ve never thought the style would suit me.

This Rose Vine 1950s Vintage Party Dress retails at £27.99 and is just one of the three beautiful dresses coming up for review in the next few weeks from BBW Couture. As I was staying at Alfie’s for the sunny weekend, it was the perfect opportunity to wear and photograph this beautiful dress. With it being 100% cotton, it does mean it is a little bit of a nightmare to iron and I’m not quite there on my house skills yet, so excuse the few creases, but it definitely helps me to point out the fact that it would need a really good iron before wearing it out.

Being 100% cotton also means that it’s incredibly lightweight and easy to wear. I have this in a size 20 and although it’s the tiniest little bit too low on my bust, it’s pretty much perfect everywhere else and would literally just need a stitch or two, maybe even a plunge bra to make it more comfortable with the V neck crossover. The design also features a mid tie belt to make into fancy bows or simply use to enhance your waist.
On my 5’3 self this Rose Vine Vintage Dress is absolutely perfect for me at just below my knee, it’s so easy to wear and with the pretty design, enhanced waist and length, I didn’t think about my arms being out one bit, which usually I do cover for my skin being irritated. Overall, I’m so far impressed, for £30 it’s exactly what I’d want from a summery dress and I can see myself wearing this a lot!

    It looks perfectly 🙂

  • Oh, I had thought to buy this for a wedding in June but I now fear I may out-stage the bride with my boobies given how low it is :/

    Great for a summer day – but maybe not a church!
