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