BBW Couture’s Animal Rose 1950s Retro Vintage Dress

Even though I’m not keen on being called a plus size ‘model’, like many interviews have referred to me as, I do have a pretty sweet modelling gig with BBW Couture. Which will explain why you see so much of them on this blog, well, every single vintage dress if we’re being precise and as most of you will know, that’s because I’m the Face of BBW Couture’s Vintage Range! Stock seems to be flying out at BBW Couture and more and more people are sharing their photos on Social Media, which is what I love to see. With their ever growing popularity and obviously, demand, I can imagine it to be a tough job to keep everyone happy, but so far, they’re nailing it.

The new dresses are seriously amazing. The prints are so bold and different, so much so that, I’ll be honest, I didn’t actually like them before I put them on and saw photographs. After I saw them on properly, I utterly loved them. They’re so different and striking, and with the material being so lightweight, they’re perfect for Summer. I was recently questioned on how they’re so breezy, but look at them, boobs out, arms out, legs out, keep all that out and you will be cool. I rewashed and wore BBW Couture dresses again whilst in Rome because they kept me cooler than anything else would.

As always, I do tell you all my sizes for reference and they’re always the same but this particular dress is the Animal Rose 1950s Retro Vintage Dress. I’m a big boobied 38GG, wearing a size 20 and standing at 5’3. This means a lot of things, the most important issue being that big boobs will seriously struggle to get inside of these dresses in your true size. However, if you go a size up, you will lose the shape t the waist and shoulders, so, I recommend a good plunge bra and squeezing those puppies past the waistline and into the cups. It’s super comfortable when they’re in but the dress isn’t supportive enough to hold big boobs without a bra, tried and failed on that one.

After you combat the boobs, on my 5’3 self, the length is perfect to ditch the leggings in a comfortable way. I love leggings and last summer I would have attempted to wear them all the time and nearly pass out from heat. This year I refuse to do that and I’ll just simply shave my legs more, a big effort but it’s so worth it! After the dress is on and you’ve got a great vintage length, the next issue is the belt hooks, you can either have them huge and gaping, or put the belt on top of the hooks and secure it that way, this is my personal favourite way.For the price of these dresses (usually around £30), I really can’t fault the slightly tight waist that makes me struggle with my boobs, as it looks amazing when I’m in. They’re so affordable and great to accessories or wear alone that I can’t recommend them enough. They’re also super easy to wash, dry and sometimes the creases will just drop right out!

The Animal Rose Vintage Dress is available in sizes 16-28 at £29.99.
