I’m sorry to make you all jealous but the dress you see in the photo above was sent to me by Bonmarché to review for my blog! I know….I’m a very lucky blogger. :o)
I’ve always loved Bonmarché clothes as they are fashionable, stylish and most importantly, comfortable to wear. The clothes they stock range in size from size 10 up to size 24. They also sell a selection of clothing in sizes 26-32.
As I wear clothing which is size 16+ I need to purchase plus size clothing. This means a lot of clothes shops don’t stock clothes to fit me… so to be able to pop into a high street clothing chain like Bonmarché to buy some fashionable clothes that fit, is fantastic!
The dress they sent me to review is the Floral Border Animal Print Maxi Dress by David Emanuel. It can be bought online only (as it is a web exclusive design) and it costs £35.00. I think this is a great price for a dress like this.
It is one of those dresses that you will wear again and again, season after season! It can either be dressed up for an evening out or dressed down for a trip to the shops.I think the print on the dress is fun and feisty…the floral design makes it fun but the animal print keeps it feisty!
I will say it now…I am not normally drawn to animal print dresses. It’s not so much that I don’t like them – I just didn’t think they would suit my figure. However Bonmarché has proved me wrong! The dress looks lovely on and is very flattering because of the twist front top with the empire line.
The dress is made from an animal print floral border fabric which is 95% Polyester 5% Elastane and the bodice lining is made from 100% Polyester. The skirt part of the maxi dress isn’t lined but as the fabric is not see-through it doesn’t need to be.
There are narrow ties thin on the side of the dress that can be tied into a bow at the back. The overall length of the dress is 128.5cm (50.5ins) and this is absolutely ideal for me! A lot of shops make maxi dresses so long that I have to cut the bottom off and re-sew the hem- just so I don’t trip over it but the length of this David Emanuel dress is just perfect!
The dress is available in size 10, 12, 14, 16, 18. 20, 22 and 24. As I write this, all sizes are available on the website. Here is the link you need to click to treat yourself to a fancy new dress for the Spring…. The gorgeous Floral Border Animal Print Maxi Dress by David Emanuel!!

The style of this dress is ever so flattering and I am delighted to tell you that this twist front maxi dress can also be bought in lots of different prints. You can see them all here. Even better is that they are continually adding more and more designs to the site. :o)
