Along Came Polly - Introducing Polly Grace & The Katrina Dress


It's always very exciting when a new plus size brand appears on the scene, especially when they have a selection of vintage inspired designs amongst their range. Polly Grace blew me away with their stunning prints and 50s shapes, but they are more than just another repro brand. With everything from casual t-shirts to maxi dresses available up to a UK size 32, there are lots of items to catch your eye whether you're on the look out for wardrobe basics or something special.

It's no surprise that I found myself swooning over their Katrina dress. Available in a range of five very different prints, the shape was designed to accentuate the waist and hide bra straps with ease. The dress is fully lined and zips up at the back with a matching self tie belt which can be worn to the front or back. It's an elegant design, perfect for wedding guests, Summer BBQs or simply because you want to feel pretty in the sunshine.
I opted for the monochrome floral print dress (£30)*, which is an absolute, floaty dream. It lends itself perfectly to be worn with a cute cardigan and clutch, and the monochrome palette makes it very easy to mix with other colours.

What I particularly liked about the dress was the higher neckline. As someone with a larger chest, I often end up being a little flattened on top which can sometimes take the shine off a classic design. I sized up by one, and found the fit was still perfect on my waist as well as the bust - especially once cinched in with the belt. I cannot wait to wear this dress to a wedding over the weekend, where I will be mixing it up with some pink sandals and a pink cardigan - and my camera of course!
