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, Item No. 9513779

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

Printed Pussy Bow Shirt, Item No. 7174195

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

Espirit Ecru Print Blouse, Item No. 7951060

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

Ditsy Print Blouse, Item No. 7170718

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, Item No. 7998074

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

Red jumpsuit, Item No. 7270011

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

Beach Dress, Item No. 9197966

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, Item No. 7990000189

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 Tops (2 Pack), Item No. 7156081

Verdict: Soft slub cotton vest, with lace panels to make it a bit more special. This is the pink, which came in a pack of two with a black one. Other colours available.

Navy and Ivory Spotty Vest, Item No. 8054487

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

Silver Print Blouse, Item No. 7428677

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