If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know that lately I have become rather despondent over the lack of choice for us fats on the actual high street especially as I live in Birmingham!
With this in mind I'm sure you can imagine my delight when I heard that Simply Be were opening a store over at Merry Hill which by car is about 30 minutes away from me. I trundled over there about two weeks ago and had a good mooch around the shop (I was like a kid in a candy store!) and grabbed loads to try on.
This is a rare pleasure for me these days to actually be able to go into a store and try lots of things on and not have to hope I squeeze into the largest size! Near the back of the store was a sale rail and me being a lover of bargains headed over to see what there was. One dress in particular caught my eye from the Kelly Brook range and when I realised that it had pockets (the holy grail of dress design) I grabbed it to try on!
After much deliberation a second trip back again and a second trying on session I gave in and bought it!
I bought the 22 and for me the fit is spot on, enough room for my boobs and not too big on my waist, and the band actually sits on my waist rather than just under my boobs so nips me in nicely. I have worn this dress twice so far once to meet Tess Munster (whole post coming on that soon!) and then to work and I felt comfortable all day in it. As it is sleeveless I added a cardigan for warmth but I can see me wearing this as a summer dress next year as well as the length is perfect.
I should also give a shout out to the Merry Hill branch of Simply Be as the staff are lovely, the changing rooms are lush complete with the magic mirror and the whole feel of the store is amazing- so well done!!
Now just please please please open one in Birmingham as us Brummie fats need you!!!
