I am going to talk like you have all been hiding under rocks and don’t already know this…
Georgina over at FullerFigureFullerBust, in collaboration with Lady V London, has released a new range of 12 vintage plus size dresses with a promise of more to come In her own line called Lady Voluptuous. At the time of this post there are currently three styles in the range in a variety of colours and prints.
The Lyra dress
The dresses are absolutely stunning, I love the fact that Georgina has tried to add elements to each dress to make them appeal to different people. Everyone has their little insecurities and I think Georgina has kept these in mind when designing these dresses. The Cosette and The Medusa are perfect for me because I’m not a huge fan of my knees. I favour dresses that have a slightly longer length. I know a lot of people don’t like having their arms on show etc and each dress in the range has a different sleeve type. No collection will ever have every dress for every woman but the effort and thought that’s gone into this collection is evident.

Ugh, So perf!
I was on the Lady V London website refreshing the page over and over again waiting for the collection to launch and the Rose Print Floral Cosette was the first dress that popped up on the home page and I instantly fell in love!
The fit of this dress is very similar to the Estella that Georgina and Ladv V London brought out last year, The Estella was by far my favourite dress of all time and I’m not even kissing when I say love this dress even more. This dress gives my body a shape I didn’t even know I had. Even without the belt my waist is accentuated and I love it!
I love every single thing about this dress, It literally feels like it was made for me. The length is perfect on my 5ft 3 body, it fits in the bust so well, just fr reference I wear a 46K. I was a little worried about whether the sleeves would fit because I have huge arms and I was very pleasantly surprised when the dress arrived. Another massive thing for me was the belt, In my eyes that was the true test because these has been so many times I have purchased a belted dress and Ive had to chuck the belt because it comes nowhere close to fitting. The belt on this dress has no stretch at all and it still *praise the dress gods (and Georgina)*
I love that even without the belt on I still have a waist in this dress.
This is the shape I have in the dress without the belt, the material has some stretch but still feels very structured.
I feel so sexy and ‘Pin up’ in this dress. I got so many compliments while wearing it out last night. I literally can’t gush enough about this dress or the line in general.
I want to say a massive Thank you to Georgina and Lady v London for keeping the super fats in mind when designing this line, it is very easy to exclude ladies at the higher end of plus size thinking there is just no demand, It genuinely warms my heart that some people recognise the need for sexy, fashionable, well made pieces for super plus size girls like myself. At the time of this post the dress I wearing is sold out in the four largest sizes of the six sizes available, proving that the fat girls are online in force getting these dresses and the line only launched 48hrs ago!!!!!!!!
*This dress was sooooooo kindly given to me to review to show that this dress looks just as banging on a size 32 as it will on everyone else*
