Have you tried any of the plus sizes verses the top end of the standard selection at Voodoo Vixen yet? Neither had I and I've been wondering which is a better fit for my curves to months now. So with my favourite prints and styles in mind I've tested some amazing items in both the XXL and the 1XL. Each fit varies so knowing the fabric and the construction of each garment helps you get the perfect size.

Oh Dana! This amazing tropical cherry and pinapple print dress is a summer swing dream!! Featuring a soft tropical print of some seriously yummy looking summer snacks on a cream base.

The Dana dress has a wide v neckline which works perfectly for ample busts and the bow tie feature really makes the bustline pop. The darts and fabric can also accommodate both large and small chest sizes so no matter what your shape you'll look amazing.

Fitted at the waist with a full swing skirt and hidden pockets this frock has me wanting to jump on a plane and head to pool size bar over the pond. I'm wearing a 1XL and I actually find this dress roomy at the waist and a little at the bust.

I've been testing the 1XL in the curve section and the XXL in the standard section and I think I'm actually suited to the XXL fit wise. For this review I've actually tested both of these sizes in a variety of garments and the fit will be slightly different as the 1XL has a few more inches according to the size chart.

If you are looking for that perfect summer dress for festivals or just nights out the Veronica is a stunning little number full colour with a ruffle and the pom-pom trim. The bright primary colours of each pompom stand so boldly on the black fabric and the pleated bust fits the twins like a  dream.

The defined waist was the first thing I noticed fit wise about this garment as it has a sheering panel at the back so it hug our curves and create a super small waistline. The size zip is always a brilliant features as I hate having a bulk zip at the back.


For this style I'm wearing the XXL and the fit is amazing. That sheering panel is what makes this dress a perfect fit and I have never felt more amazing than when I'm wearing the Veronica. This style is obviously a customer favourite as genius's at Voodoo Vixen have released a red with black pompom version and for all you romper lovers you can get both colour ways in adorable playsuits! All three are on my lust list. Pairing this with a red bolero makes this dress perfect for Spring!  

From tropical prints and pom poms to retro vegas prints! The Pippa Vegas is a black based flared skirt with a iconic retro Las Vegas images print. The perfect piece to add to your collection of separates for day or night wear as it's so comfortable and cute.

With a hidden zipper and side pockets you have enough room to hide your phone and all your goodies. There is nothing better than extra deep pockets as I tend to get grumpy with handbag and love being able to fit all my essentials in my outfit.

I'm wearing this style in a 1XL and It's actually too big. The waist is very loose and the extra stretch means I find it looser than I'd like it to be. So next time I'll be sure to size down to the XXL.

For this look I wanted to go for a slight pattern clash so I paired the Pippa skirt with the Rose Cardigan. This combo turned out to be perfect and I just love how the smaller print of roses really compliments the more bold Vegas images all over the skirt. I wear this cardigan in a XXL and the fit rocks my socks off. I've paired this cardigan with pretty much every dress or top in my wardrobe as it's so very versatile.

Voodoo Vixen always rock an amazing knit and I can't wait to get my hands on even more next season. I've been lusting after their sweaters for a while now so fingers crossed I can review them and help other busy girls.

Many thanks to the always brilliant and fun Liz Flemming for snapping these with me on a morning when we work too early but got to meet and see lots of puppers and cats so it worked out well!

  1. Oh my god, so many great outfits and so little town. I could wax poetic on every one of these outfit all day. I think my favorite is the first one, I just love how that kelly green just pops with your skin and hair color. It really makes a statement!
