La Redoute Spring Summer 15

Including the swimwear that I ordered (see my swimwear posts for beach and swimming outfits) I managed to order 25 items from La Redoute; I was very restrained and returned them all!

Printed Dress with Peter Pan Collar,

Verdict: A loose fit flared dress with no bust darts hang nicely off a flat chest.

Printed Pussy Bow Shirt,

Verdict: This shirt has no bust darts so sits really well on a flat chest. The pussy bow is optional!

Esprit Ecru Print Blouse,

Verdict: The printed bib adds depth, lovely light fabric.

Ditsy Print Blouse,

Verdict: No bust darts, great pattern, contrast piping and breast pockets make this a great ‘flat’ blouse. Very long sleeves though!

2-in-1 Effect Dress,

Verdict: Would probably look better after an iron! Basic black dress (jersey bodice and cotton skirt) with separate lace bodice layer.

Red jumpsuit,

Verdict: I love this playsuit. Great elasticated band with crochet frill in gorgeous bright red.

Beach Dress,

Verdict: A slightly odd thick material, not sure how comfrotable this would be after a period of time, or on a hot day but a good alternative if you don’t want to bare all on the beach.

Black Vest Top,

Verdict: Mesh top and embroidered bib add lots of detail, The cotton fabric has no give in it and is a straight cut so not a great fit if you have a tummy or wide hips like me.

The next few items are nightwear and lingerie options which are pretty, comforatble and don’t have cups, darts, plunging necklines or integral support.

Vest Top

Verdict: Soft slub cotton vest, with lace panels to make it a bit more special.

Navy and Ivory Spotty Vest,

Verdict: Flattering satin top with adjustable straps so you can choose how much decolletage to show!

Silver Print Blouse,

Verdict: Really pretty sheer fabric with lots of detail with a flared fit to float over tummy and hips.
