A few weeks a go, the lovely Jan from Bravissimo invited me to their Oxford store to try on Pepperberry’s new party wear range.
For those who don’t know, Pepperberry make clothes tailored to those bouncing boobies. Stocking sizes 8 – 18 each sizing range has an additional three sizing options within each size, curvy, really curvy and super curvy. This means that you don’t have to keep sizing up to get a dress to fit to your chest and you certainly don’t have to compromise on a gaping waist like so many of us extreme hourglass figures often have to cinch in with a belt!
My boobs sit high and full without being squished or squashed and the waist bands sits flush against my waist with no need for a belt to pull it in. This results in an exaggerated hourglass shape, emphasised by the full skater skirt that is oh-so-flirtatious.
The dress is made from quite a stiff jacquard material that has very little give in it, the firm pleats of the skirt give it the full shape but also create an swing effect when you move – perfect for jive attempts at the Christmas party!
The skirt sits mid-thigh on me which is a perfect length for a party dress. I’m 5ft10 so this will likely sit a little longer on many others. I, however, love a short skirt – I just have to remember to wear pretty knickers just in case I bend over!
The dress is priced at £85 which I don’t think is bad for a timelessly classic piece such as this – it is sophisticated, elegant and well made. It comes lined and fits like it’s been made specifically for me. I definitely class this as an investment piece!
The rest of the Pepperberry Party Wear collection is equally timeless and elegant – it is simple, classic lines in high quality jersey, stretch lace, and form hugging textures like jacquard and velvet. I took some mirror selfies of my other favourites whilst trying them on …
All fitted beautiful, although the jumpsuit was a tad too short for me to wear without heels, but the jacquard was just that bit more special than the others – and who doesn’t love a dark green around Christmas?
