Review: Boohoo Plus
Collection SS14 (#1)

Images © Big Fat Betty | I placed an order for a few items from the new plus size range at Boohoo a couple of weeks ago. Firstly, the delivery was really quick; I placed the order late Tuesday evening, opted for standard delivery (UK Saver, £3.99) and the items arrived on Friday. If you're really dying to get your hands on something, next day delivery is only £4.99, which is quite reasonable (and only £1 more).

I ordered (L-R) the Kimbillie Floral Longsleeve Playsuit (£22.00), Evie Mesh Hem Panel Midi Dress (Black or Cream, £18.00) and Kara Floral Jeggings (£16.00). I opted for my usual size (22) and I am pleased to say that everything is a good fit, although I could've possibly sized down in the midi dress.

Words cannot describe how much I adore this playsuit! I didn't think it suit me, but I love it. It's very comfortable and I think you could dress it up or down, or even as a beachwear cover-up.

I am not so sure about the midi dress. I know a lot of people rock this look and I really wanted to try it, but I think it just looks like a tent on me. Perhaps with a wide belt it'd work.

I love the print on the 'jeggings' but, well, I have to point out that they're not jeggings (in my opinion). They're made from a stretch jersey fabric and are not jean-like at all. They are like very thick leggings. Anyway, asides from that, they're fab.

Overall, I'm really impressed. For a new range there is a good variety of fashionable, reasonably priced items. At present the range only goes up to a 24, which I realise may be a disappointment to some and I can only hope that this changes in the future. However, I do have one small criticism, which is that some of the range is available from Pink Clove at lower prices; I'm quite lucky that this didn't apply to any of the items that I purchased, although I did unfortunately miss out on the student discount as I didn't think about it at the time. Has anyone else tried out the new range? What are your thoughts?
