This month Curvissa challenged 5 bloggers, including myself, to style a maxi dress from their collection of many. It seems that most of us opted for this beautiful Curvissa Oli Draped Bandeau Maxi Dress and it’s no wonder why. Seeing the dress on the website I immediately thought, ‘I can make that work’, but I meant it in the sense that I didn’t know it would be a perfect design. Like most maxi dresses, boob space, length, clinginess and overall design can sometimes be a worry, but not for this dress!
For once on a maxi dress with allocated boob space, the space was actually large enough that I didn’t have to have my nipples out for most of the day. There was even extra material to pull it up even more. I wore this with the Curvy Kate strapless and with is being a loose polyester fit, it did slip down and not cooperate with my bra as well as it could have, so the extra material on the bust really came in handy. It is a tad long as you can see, but I am 5’3 and I expect this from maxis, plus, I kind of like having to pull it up on stairs etc, I feel so ladylike.
This dress was £30 but now it is only £25 making it even more of a steal! I definitely think this is a dress to team with a white cardigan to compliment the little love heart pattern, but it’d probably look amazing with a jean jacket too. It’s available in sizes 8-26, not the best plus size range for a plus size company though…. I didn’t have chance to get the most amazing photos due to time allocated for the challenge and I’ve been working away, but this little number will be heading to Rome with me too! Definitely a 5* dress.
