Plus Size Rockabilly Cherry Dress From Dolly And Dotty

Hey Cats,

Recently the lovely vintage inspired brand Dolly And Dotty asked me to review one of their dresses. I was super excited because I always gravitate towards a vintage edge. Plus I had a wedding to go to and wanted to rock the perfect outfit. There was so much to choose from on the site ranging from size 6 to 24. Not only that but the prints come in a range of styles. 

The website is fantastic and really easy to navigate which is so important to an online shopper like me. Staff were super helpful when I made enquirers about a dress that was out of stock and I wasn't left waiting long for it to come back in stock at all. I love that you can choose a print like floral, polka dot or cherry to narrow down the dress choices. 

I knew straight off I wanted a cherry dress and had at least 6 different styles to choose from all with a classic vintage edge. In the end I chose the cherry Sophie as I just adore the halter style with  a sweetheart neckline and a full skirt. The print was vibrant and pretty and everything I had been looking for after lusting after a cherry dress. I sized down to a 20 as this dress comes with the elastic backing panel which means it actually has lots of room. Dare I say I could even have sized down again but the fit was totally comfortable. So I do think that ladies above a 24 would be able to wear this style dress. 

The dress is fantastic quality for the price tag of just £29.99 and I have washed and worn it several times with no colour run or fade. 

I felt like a vintage queen when I rocked up to the wedding and even though I was in the dress all day I wasn't in a rush to get out of it when I got home. Often when I wear halternecks because of my ample bosom I find that I can end up with a sore neck but the tie fabric was soft and wide so didn't rub or pull in any way. 

The skirt is very full and would look gorgeous with a black or red petticoat but is still full and glamorous without. I want to get my hands on a red petticoat to rock with it next. Dolly and Dotty do stock petticoats and even hair accessories too. I have my eye on some hairbands and another dress that I may treat myself to in pay day. 

Have you bought anything from Dolly and Dotty? 


  1. Thanks for a great review, I had to check out their site and it looks like they ship to Europe so I might buy something! :)

    And you look gorgeous in the dress, by the way! :) xx
