Wild Flowers - A PSOOTD with Dolly And Dotty - Petal Vintage Floral Swing Dress in Red

With the early Winter nights stretching the sunlight out a little more each day, it's hard to not start dreaming about all the fun which Spring will bring. The change of the season heralds a whole new wardrobe revamp, which in my case means swapping winter knits for ditsy prints and lots of floaty shapes. Vintage repro does this so well, so it was love at first sight when I came across the Dolly and Dotty website. Filled to bursting with swing dresses, fitted dreams and all manner of prints, their designs go up to a UK24 and I couldn't wait to take one for a spin - quite literally!

With so many styles to choose from, it was so difficult to pick the one I liked the best. In the end, I went with what I felt I would get the most wear out of, and picked the Petal Vintage Floral Swing Dress in red.



The dress is an absolute dream. The high neckline easily accommodated my larger chest which was a really nice surprise. Normally this style of dress would show a lot of cleavage on me as they scramble to escape, so it was wonderful to find it roomy on top. For me, this meant that the dress was the holy grail of daytime options for any big boobed babes!

The gathered shoulders and waist were balanced with a matching print belt, and the dress is fully lined with a hidden zip to the back. Wearing it, the dress felt much more expensive than it's £30 tag. The fact that it came lined was unexpected, but unlike other dresses in the same price band, it wasn't a static nightmare. It fell and hung perfectly and I felt amazing twirling around in it. The lining does make the dress come up a shade tighter, so it's worth going up one if you're at the top end of your size. The fabric does have some stretch to it, and as such feels really comfy to wear.

This particular shape comes in more than ten different prints, and is available up to a UK size 24. You can also view the rest of their range by clicking here.

Until next time,
