Here is my review for 3 new items from Simply Be Fashions
Simply Be Fashions
I was lucky enough to be contacted by a lovely person representing
Simply Be Fashions, the UK based online plus-sized fashion site, to do a review on a few items of theirs.
As you know, I love
Simply Be. Their quality is great, their prices are fair and the fashions are right on target.
Their sizing is from 8-28 which is pretty amazing, since most plus size stores only go up to a 3X.
There is something for everyone and for every occasion: from jeans to cocktail dresses; from shoes (including the hard-to-find wide width) to jewelry; and much more.
These are 3 things that I picked out:
SIMPLY BE DENIM
Shape and Sculpt Skinny Jeans
These premium Shape and Sculpt skinny jeans are engineered with multidirectional stretch denim to respond to your curves and retain their shape. They contain Tencel to provide ultimate comfort. Featuring a comfortable high rise with hidden Magisculpt control panel to help flatten your tummy and hold you in. Designed with intelligent seaming to define and lift your bottom, making them the ultimate must-have jeans.
70% Cotton, 21% Tencel, 7% Polyester, 2% Elastane.
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE these jeans.
I thought my days of wearing jeans were over.
These are so light and comfy and slip-on so easily that I feel that I can wear these forever. (There are 2 buttons and a zipper, however, I was able to just slip them on.)
My jeans did not fit snug like in the picture on the site, but I think that’s because I ordered them a size too large.
Finally, pants I can tuck a shirt into.
The color is magnificent. Sort of an indigo blue.
I like the ‘give’ that comes from the great materials used.
I definitely think that I’ll get a lot of wear out of them and they are just so light feeling, so unlike regular jeans.
Red Floral Cami Skater Dress
I ordered this dress at the end of summer because the temperatures where I live stay hot for at least another 2 months.
Also, I couldn’t resist this.
A fabulous throw-on summer dress. This easy to wear piece is perfect for these warmer months. This is a sleeveless jersey stretch cami dress in a fit and flare silhouette.
97% Polyester, 3% Elastane.
Unfortunately, this just did not fit well.
The armholes are a little large so you will have to be carefull with the bra you wear underneath and I just used a black bandeau.
It’s so comfy and beautiful though. I love the colors so much.
I think I can make it work with a belt and maybe hemming it up a bit.
This is meant for someone taller and as I am only 5’1″, I felt like I was swimming in it.
Love the neckline, though.
Finally, I chose these great shoes:
Heavenly Soles Slingback Shoes:
Everyone needs a pair of these pointed-toe slingback pumps from Heavenly Soles. A choice of colors means they are so versatile they can be worn with any outfit.
Upper: Other materials. Linings and sock: Other materials. Sole: Other materials.
Heel: 3in/75mm. Wide E Fit.
These are gorgeous! Just the most beautiful coral and they fit perfectly. Who knew? Wide-width pointy toe shoes!
Simply Be remains the same high quality, great fashion plus-size store it’s always been.
I wish that I had remembered from before that everything runs a little large, because then the jeans would have fit perfectly.
I do love the jeans, however. They are so comfy and look great and I’ve never been so comfortable in any pair of pants.
Simply Be and have some fun!
