Today we are going to talk beautiful dream dresses! I have been drooling over Chi Chi dresses for some time now and if you watched my haul or favourites video you would have seen I finally have my hands on one. When Chi Chi got in touch and asked if I wanted to review one of their dresses I couldn't say yes quick enough. They have a range of dresses catering for sizes 4-24 with a straight size range and a petite and plus range. The fabulous thing about the curve range is that there are more than a handful of dresses available, There are colours, patterns and different shaped beautiful gowns, The one that I fell for was the Lottie *. I wanted to look like a gothic princess in this feminine but dark dream dress,
I love the three quarter sleeves on this dress and with such a beautiful delicate lace style patterning it hardly feels like you're wearing sleeves at all. The sheer material over the busting and sleeves keep the dress modern and elegant. If you're not a big fan of a sleeve there is a very similar dress available in sleeveless called the Katy but I just love this embroidery and feel so comfortable not wearing a cardigan or jacket which means all the attention goes on this beautiful dress.
Not having to wear a cardigan means that you get to see this beautiful back which continues the same embroidered patterning with the playful mesh. Showing that little bit extra flesh without ever really having to expose anything. The bust is slightly padded giving that extra protection and a little bit of support.
The dress is fully lined and all the material is fantastic quality. The full skirt comes with a mesh underskirt attached to give the skirt that extra volume to make you feel special and girly. It made me want to twirl around.
The only down side for me is the sizing is on the small side which can be frustrating if your on a 24 as that's when the plus brand stops at the moment. Fingers crossed this will be increased in the future so more ladies can experience such fabulous dresses. I went for a 22 and it fit lovely so make sure if you are between sizes to size up for a more comfortable fit.
I am now officially addicted to Chi Chi curve and will be keeping a close eye on the collections.
