Shabby Apple reached out to me as a fat style blogger person to find out if I was interested in doing a review and giveaway. I had never looked at their site before, but was delighted to find a lot of dresses in the style of vintage clothing, many of which are available in plus size.

Their sizing is specific to their site, I checked out their size chart and saw that their “WL” was what would fit my measurements, and I ordered their “Boss” dress to see how it would look on me. I will be honest, I was completely dubious. The website doesn’t use plus size models so I didn’t know how it would look on me. The description made it sound like it might not fit me; they suggest larger busted customers go up a size in this dress and I was ordering the largest size they had. I figure with the surplice bust if it didn’t fit well it would at least be one of those dresses I could spill out of in a slutty sort of way. When I got the dress I was very surprised.

The dress is a great stretch cotton, which looks structured but actually is incredibly comfortable. I wiggled in easily and had plenty of room. The arms are a little tight but seem to be breaking in on the second wear. I think it fits really well and looks classic retro pin-up. I actually loved it so much I might get another one in black and experiment with going down a size to get more cleavage out of it.

There are a lot of other vintage clothing style dresses in plus sizes (and straight sizes, too) on the Shabby Apple site. Check it out!
