It’s gotta have that swing …

I love a full skirt – I realise that I have at least six in my wardrobe and yet still feel the need to buy more.   They’re one of the most versatile of items – wear them for work with a simple shirt or for the day with a chunky jumper.  Come the evening, wear them with a plunging body or, even better, a sheer body, for a little va-va-voom.   This is exactly what I’ve done with the final of party outfits from my recent look book.

Plus Size Full Skirt Review

The full skirt is past season Elvi but still available to buy here.   I love the subtle silvery-grey snake print with contrasting gold zip.  The waist band sits high and wide on my waist creating a real hourglass feel to the shape.   The skirt is suitably full and made from a thickly textured material that holds the subtle pleats and allows for that real swish and sway that is needed for any full skirt.

I’m wearing a size 18 and the fit is perfect.  The skirt could be a tad longer sit sits directly on my knee and I would have preferred it to sit a little further down my calfs.   I am 5ft10 so it is rare that a skirt does sit like a true midi skirt on me!

Plus Size Full Skirt Review

I’ve paired the full skirt with my Ann Summers body (you can see it reviewed here). Pairing a body with a full skirt is one of my favourite combinations as body sit that little bit slimmer against the skin and help to really create that vintage silhouette that I love about full skirts.

Bodies are also that little bit sexy, so tend to lift what is, essentially, a very prim and proper skirt.    The sheer element of this floral Ann Summers body really adds more than a little bit of sex appeal.


I love this outfit combinations, especially with the addition of my 50’s inspired courts and it is definitely a go-to look for me during the party season.
