Bespoke Frocks by Simply Be For The Voluptuous Vixen

Plus size body shapes vary as much as any other. Some fatties are long legged lovelies, others have small boobs whilst some have very large chests and hips to match. 
Its the united colour's of fatty and thank goodness clothing brands are beginning to recognise this.
I am plus size but small shouldered with very big boobs which can make getting a good fit particularly on some dresses problematic, get a dress to sit well on my shoulders and waist, be prepared for gaping at the bust line, accommodate my bust and have a dress that's almost a size too big. 
So I was very keen to try the Bespokefit range by Simply be. 
Bespokefit-such a good idea-Mister truffles (aka my shadow) agrees
Its such a simple idea and yet also genius. A range of clothes in sizes 12-32 which cater to your bra cup size. So for example if you are a size 22 with a E-GG bra size you can order the "Voluptuous" style, if you are a size 24 with a bra size B-DD you could try the "Standard" fit and if like me you are a size 18 with a bust size H-K plus you can order the "Very Voluptuous" fit.
You simply pick your usual size dress and cross reference it to your bra size and bish bash bosh an item of clothing that fits rather well indeed.
This dress ticks all my fashion boxes
I chose this animal print tunic £35 from the collection as I just adore the colour,the Peter pan collar, and animal print of course! Its everything I love in a dress.
the fabric is light and silky and its gently pulled in at the waist but unlike a lot of skater dresses it hits below the knee, just right for this chillier weather.

Because I'm an awkward (and awesome) shape I did find the Very Voluptuous fit slightly too roomy around the bust and think next time I will order the cup size down. I still love the fit though especially as its not too big on the shoulders.If you struggle to get a good fit in certain items its well worth a look. They have a sale on at the moment too.
Peter Pan collars-doncha just love them?
Speaking of clever clothes the eagle eyed of you will have spotted that this frock is sleeveless so I have worn a pair of Wingz £15.99 which I love (see my previous post about them here) basically they are sleeves which you can pop on under anything you require some arm coverage with. 
They are elasticated and the band sits under your bra strap, they are really comfortable and most importantly mean you don't have to spend your life in a cardigan this winter if all your fave frocks are minus arm coverage.

Wingz-seem like a weird idea, are actually brilliant
Wingz are offering my readers a 25% discount if you fancy grabbing a pair. The code is pamper and use it on the site.Its available until November the 5th.

Its exhausting being a Puglet
