Today I wanted to share with you my favourite dress in my wardrobe; the lemon dress from AX Paris. As soon as I saw this dress on the AX Paris website, I knew I had to have it; it was love. I wanted something a little different to wear to Plus North, a fashion event for plus sized girls held in Leeds, and I knew that this dress would be it. After all, if you’re in a room with other plus sized girls, you would want to wear something a little different to limit the risks of turning up in the same outfit as someone else! I figured this eye-catching lemon number fit the bill.
The cut of this dress is fantastically flattering and a prime example of how AX Paris have made their Curve collection for a truly curvy figure. The elasticated waist band fits to your true figure and the chiffon skirt floats over a bit of a tummy, like in my case, or bottom, flattering those areas rather than emphasising or hiding them. The wrap over deep v neck is again flattering, sexy and is perfect for those with an ample bust. I’m not particularly well endowed in the breast department so the dress fits a little largely on me here but because the elastic waistband draws the dress in at my thinnest part under my bust, it fits perfectly.
I paired the dress with black accessories so as not to detract from the vibrant yellow in the lemons on the top of the dress. I feel as though adding yellow accessories would cheapen the look of the dress and it would lose its unique design. A dress like this doesn’t deserve to fade into the background!
