Review: Back in the Blogging
Game with Lovedrobe

Well well, it's been a while, hasn't it? Blogging has been pretty much a non-event for me for the past year or so; in fact I only posted 5 times last year. I've taken some time out, intentionally and otherwise, to reflect and revise. One of the many conclusions that I've come to is that the world needs and deserves more fat babe representation, and so here I am (again), bringing you a funky mix of politics and plus size fashion.

Where better to start than with a review? I've known about Lovedrobe for quite some time now but have yet to purchase from them, mainly as I felt that their beautiful dresses weren't really something that I could pull off outside of a special occasion, but when they got in touch offering to gift me some items to review I thought I'd give them a go.

Their items come in sizes 16-28. I'm usually a 24/26 (top/bottom) and was advised by some plus size pals to size up, so I went for a 26 in the 'wrapover dress' in blue (product code: D00698NAVYMULTI, £49.00) and a 26/28 in the 'pleated dress' (product code: GBL920, £79.00). The wrapover dress I should've got a 24 in but it's wearable (and if you're large chested you may well need the extra room unlike me) and the pleated dress is spot on.

I opted for the wrapover dress as it's suitable for work and the pleated dress as it could be dressed up or down. They're both comfortable and good quality as far as I can tell. Honestly, I think the prices are quite high and not what I'd usually pay, but they do have a rather crackin' sale section.

PS: They offer free standard UK delivery and 10% off your first order with the code 'FIRST10'.
