Wildflowers - Samya Belted Botanical Print Dress from House of Fraser

I just want to start this review by saying that I audibly gasped when I spotted this Samya Plus Size Belted Botanical Print Dress on the House of Fraser website. Everything about it from the print to the cute sleeves was right up my street, and I could see myself living in it as we made the transition from spring to summer.

Over the last year or so, I've found myself visiting the women's dress section of the House of Fraser website more and more, as their selection of plus size brands is ever growing and they seem to have a constant stream of online sales. This time around, I also noticed their clever "true fit" tab, which allows you to see how your measurements stack up against the cut and size of a dress. It really steered me well when selecting the Samya dress, as it advised me to size up by one and was absolutely spot on.

I always worry about my bust being squashed in these type of cut out dresses, but sizing up ensured that the ladies up top were absolutely comfy. The belt helped to achieve a great fit on the waist, with the a-line shape perfect for pretty much any occasion. This is one of those dresses where  a change of shoes and accessories easily takes it from desk to drinks, and I know when we start to drift into Autumn, it'll be paired with tights and cardigans too. I'm utterly in love with it, and am so ready for the sunshine fun to start so that I have every excuse to wear it!

Until next time,

  1. You know, I've been looking at some Samya dresses and wondering what the fit was like as you don't often see reviews of them, but there you are! It's so so lovely!

    1. Hehe, glad to be of help! Have a look on the HoF website as their true fit thing is really helpful. :) x
