As a size 14-16 I'm just inside the threshold for being able to shop at straight sized stores, except that is for Missguided. I haven't been a particular fan of theirs in the past because I've found their sizes come up ludicrously small and then their ridiculous customer service and returns policy have just put me off completely. It's a shame because I think their clothes are really affordable and my style. As I've spoken about before, if you're plus sized it's extremely hard to get trend led pieces at affordable prices so I was excited that Missguided had not only decided to take notice of this audience, but gave me the chance to size up if their straight range came up too small (which it always does).
It's great to see someone following in Boohoo's footsteps and bringing girly and glam style for everyone. My overall assessment of the range is it's a good start but it's got a way to go. There are some great autumn/winter colours and some really nice day to night pieces but what it's missing first of all is real variety. Boxy tops are everywhere. I also was hoping to see some of their glitzy party wear but that was also noticeably absent.
I've gathered together a few of my picks from the collection. I'd love to know what you think of the collection, do you think more retailers should be offering clothes in plus sizes ? You can find the full Missguided+ range here.
