As I'm sure a lot of you know Navabi is a one stop destination for designer plus size clothing. With over around 50 designers it's a go to for on trend designer fashion.

They are quoted saying 'We score with exclusive service – fast and free shipping, personal style advice, and much more. Desirable life(&)style is more than the sum of its parts.'  It offers a service and experience not always seen to be offered to women of plus sizes, a movement in the industry that is definitely needed. 

I was kindly gifted this gift from the designer Manon Baptise. It's headline ' Parisian chic for the contemporary confident woman.' I dislike being negative but seeing as I can't lie and will always be honest, the dress I was sent was a bit too adventurous in respect of creating and adapting a peplum. I will say it photographs better than in person, after seeing the pictures I actually think it looks lovely on. After the problems of sizing and being sent the garment in a smaller size (first point, sizing isn't great but I loved the fact I had to size down,) The peplum can only be described as the outline of a pair of pants both at the front and back. I have an arse and hips and quite frankly this dress did nothing for either parts. My arse actually looked like had grew wings. The price point for me was way too much also. The dress is simply a jersey dress and for £142.90 I just couldn't part with my cash for this dress.

It's such a shame that I've had this negative experience, but may I add not at all with Navabi or the PR( they've been incredible with service and helping with the sizing,) but with this particular garment. The rest of the designers collection which is currently up is amazing with pieces I could definitely imagine suiting myself and others. 

Anyway here's the pics. I wore it dressed up with heels and kept it simple just not to add anymore attention to it.

Sometimes I think the problem with designing for plus size people sometimes try to adapt and change something that works to something that just doesn't. The peplum in this case would do nothing for a curvy body but just add unnecessary fabric and shape to parts of the body that don't need the attention.
