Review: Laura Check Print A-Line Bow Dress from Pink Clove


It’s not very often that I wear a dress but when I do I like to make sure I feel good in it. There’s nothing worse than wearing something that makes you feel uncomfortable and really isn’t you. When Pink Clove got in touch to ask me if I’d like to try out one of their new pieces I was delighted to see a range of plus size clothing that was both fashionable and reasonably priced.

After spending an hour looking at the available clothing on their website, I decided upon this lovely Laura Check Print A-line Bow Dress. I do love a tartan dress and this is black and red tartan dress is really lovely. I really liked the bow detail around the neckline and the dress fits really well. The dress fits straight over the head with no zips or buttons.


The sizing is pretty accurate. I think if I had ordered any smaller it would have been too tight and I wouldn’t have felt comfortable wearing it.


The length of the dress is good too, not too long but not too short either. I wore it with my thick black tights and my brogues for an evening meal out with my husband and Little Mr on our short break in Wales.

The Laura Check Print A-Line Bow Dress fits really nice and I think that’s thanks to the flattering cut and the material which doesn’t cling to lumps and bumps. I really like the length of the sleeves as you can wear this dressed up for an evening out with a blazer or on it’s own. I could probably wear this outfit for work too.


If you’re looking for a nice stylish dress or a nice top to wear, you really should look at Pink Clove. They have a lovely selection of plus size clothes and if my dress is anything to go by, the quality will be really nice and will look fabulous on you!


The Pink Clove Laura Check Print A-Line Bow Dress is available online for £20.

    Looks really good, suits you. I always find dresses a nightmare to wear because I’m pear shaped. Always a shame, because I love that shape of dress.
