Check Mate: Bandeau Dress In Check by Asos Curve

Asos Curve doing what they do best

I place quite a lot of importance on the shape and cut of clothes. This began years ago when I would attempt to diminish or hide my shape and now whilst I no longer feel the need to camouflage I still favour fitted clothes with paneling, support and structure. My shape doesn't tend to look great in unstructured stretchy cotton and I don't really do "casual"
So when I saw this Bandeau Dress In Check £25 by Asos Curve I was really torn.

How the dress looks on the website

It looked absolutely banging on the model picture but I wasn't sure if I would end up looking like a sack of potatoes or worse like I was wearing some plus size stretch version of a slobby Maxi  dress.

The shape of this is divine
I needn't have worried. As soon as I put it on I felt amazing. The check pattern is bold and crisp and the shape is divine. Gently pulled in at the waist and flaring out to just below the ankle, its casual but still looks well put together.The sizing on this is spot on and as it is in a stretch fabric and is elasticated at both the waist and neck is perfect if you carry your weight on your boobs and tummy like me.

Comfortable yes but so chic
Its strapless so perfect for a night out but similarly as you can see here it looks great with a casual long cardigan and a pair of gladiator sandals.
I just can't get enough of this dress, its comfortable obviously but I feel really chic in it.Monochrome is so easy to wear and makes such a good accompaniment to my bright pink geranium lipstick by Limecrime.

I've piled my hair up and worn this great necklace by Miss Selfridge. I really don't feel this dress needs anything else. Its simple perfection.
Monochrome magic

I've had a hectic day as its been babas first day back at school, I had a ton of work to catch up with and a pug with a runny bum requiring lots of walks. This outfit has served me very well indeed.
